Fantastic synth

Matthew3022, 11.07.2016
I own the prophet 6, and I just got my OB-6 a few weeks ago. Both are great.

How to describe the OB-6? Compared to the P-6, the OB-6 1) has a more vintage sound (just a tad though), 2) has a more gritty "sizzle" sound on the top end, 3) is a bit brighter.

Which is better? They are equal. Just depends on what you want to do.
