Excellent true analog synth!

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.

Overall high spa factor

18.11.2016
Negative:
The qualities open up to a second glance, so I was initially inclined to give only 4 stars. I was a bit negatively surprised when I first played, but I was similar to the Prophet 6 desktop. Some sounds sound pretty thin and a plugin like DIVA seems almost equal. But could be simply synonymous s.deren the presets lie.

Some flat sounds sound really very nice, but the pleasure ends then quickly with
The next chord change, 6 voices are nevertheless a little, if one a flowing transition
To reach. Here, with a suitable purse, it is likely to provide a second module and the optional cascading of the devices.


Positive:
The matter is with the Unisonsounds, here the OB6 is really in motion, almost moogular, whereby my Moog has just a bit more bite. It is really exciting when programming the
Stereo and aftertouch effects of some sounds. Here the OB6 scores and the sounds can unfold great. At this point, I find one of the reasons to make a synthesizer of this price class. Some sounds simply stand out for themselves, are present and really bearable. Class.

In short, the following things convince the OB6 module: The whole part is fun - a round thing.
Very good operability, great experiment potential - leaves room for many good soundpresets.
The Appregiator and sequencer unit convinces. Overall a clear purchase recommendation.

Supplement:
Absolutely take the time and the presets at rest
To play. Are really great sounds, so
That I would like to revise the statement "thin". 5 Stars.
