MS, 29.10.2016
I was not very happy with hybrid Dave Smith synthesizers in recent years. They sound a bit digital to me.
But this new OB-6 changes my view of Dave's synths.
OB-6 just a real analog monster.
It differs from previous DSI synths to SEM oscillators and filters that give a unique sound which we remember from the old analog Oberheims.
OB-6 has incredibly convenient control of all parameters.
No deep menus, all parameters controlled by hands very quickly.
Don't even need to read the manual, if you know the basics of synthesis, you will create your sound for 1-2 minutes.
With OB-6 you can easily create great pads, leads and bass in various styles: electronic, ambient, techno, funk and fusion, dance and other styles.
There are 500 ready factory sounds for various styles and 500 sounds you can create your own.
OB-6 can sound very powerful and deep or can sound very clean, soft and transparent.
The "unison" function allows you to combine up to 6 analog voices in one voice and then the sound becomes incredibly powerful and panchy.
OB-6 can sound very different, depending on what you need.
A very cool feature is "detune", which loose the control of the pitch of each analog voice and creates a unique "drift" analog oscillators.
A very useful sequencer and arpeggiator.
The synth made and assembled very efficiently, side panels made of natural wood. It looks very nice!
Potentiometers with smooth motion and with no backlash.

What's not to like: there is no desktop user manual. There is manual only for the keyboard version.
When you turn off the unit there is a loud click.
Also I would like to have a multitimbral mode in OB-6, but it will be cost much more and i wish a second LFO. Now, for second LFO i can use OSC 2.

Overall, this synth is very great!
Sound, features, build quality - all at a very high level.

Why I bought at Thomann?
Because the Thomann team provides great service, fast shipping, warranty. To buy and paying very convenient in web-site. s
Sellers professionally and quickly answer all questions.
I recommend this store to my friends.
It was my first purchase in this store. Everything was great!
Now, I'm going to do a new order for Studio equipment.

Negativ:
Die Qualitäten erschließen sich einem erst auf den zweiten Blick, so dass ich anfangs geneigt war nur 4 Sterne zu geben. Klanglich war ich beim ersten Durchspielen etwas negativ überrascht, ging mir übrigens beim Prophet 6 Desktop ähnlich. Irgendwie klingen manche Sounds doch ziemlich dünn und ein Plugin wie DIVA erscheint fast ebenbürtig. Könnte aber auch einfach an der Zusammenstellung der Presets liegen.

Einige Flächensounds klingen wirklich sehr schön, allerdings endet das Vergnügen dann schnell mit
dem nächsten Akkordwechsel, 6 Stimmen sind doch etwas wenig, wenn man ein fließenden Übergang
erreichen möchte. Hier kann man bei entsprechendem Geldbeutel wahrscheinlich mittels eines zweiten Moduls und der optionalen Kaskadierung der Geräte Abhilfe schaffen.


Positiv:
Zur Sache geht es mit den Unisonsounds, hier kommt der OB6 doch richtig in Fahrt, fast schon moogmäßig, wobei mein Moog einfach noch ein bißchen mehr Biss hat. Richtig spannend wird es bei der Programmierung der
Stereo-und Aftertoucheffekte einiger Sounds. Hier punktet der OB6 und die Sounds können sich toll entfalten. An dieser Stelle ergibt sich für mich einer der Gründe, sich einen Synthesizer dieser Preisklasse zu leisten. Manche Sounds stehen einfach für sich, sind präsent und wirklich tragend. Klasse.

Kurz gefaßt überzeugen folgende Sachen am OB6 Modul: Das ganze Teil macht Spass - eine runde Sache.
Sehr gute Bedienbarkeit, großes Experimentierpotential - läßt noch Raum für viele gute Soundpresets.
Die Appregiator-und Sequenzereinheit überzeugt. Insgesamt eine klare Kaufempfehlung.

Nachtrag:
Unbedingt sich die Zeit nehmen und die Presets in Ruhe
durchspielen. Sind wirklich grandiose Sounds dabei, so
dass ich die Aussage "dünn" revidieren möchte. 5 Sterne.
