Kompakter FM-Spezialist
Tos , 25.01.2021
Für meinen Yamaha TX-7 (mit nie wirklich zufriedenstellend arbeitendem Jellinghaus DX Programmer), den ich Ende der 90er abgestoßen habe, hatte ich nie wirklich einen Ersatz. Vielleicht war mir FM-Synthese in Hardware nie wichtig genug, um dafür wertvollen Studioplatz zu opfern. Aber jetzt, wo ich wieder zunehmend mit Hardware produziere, wollte ich den opsix unbedingt einmal ausprobieren. Das Wichtigste vorab: Die mehrwöchige Testzeit ist vorbei und der Korg bleibt. Warum?
Die FM-Programmierung mit Ratio-Poti und Level-Fader für jeden der sechs Operatoren, die farblich kodiert anzeigen, ob es sich um einen Träger oder Modulator handelt ist genau so, wie ich mir das immer gewünscht hatte. Die gegenüber den Originalen leicht vereinfachten Hüllkurven sind aus meiner Sicht eher vorteilhaft und dass sich die sechs Encoder sämtliche anderen Funktionen teilen ist in der Praxis ein akzeptabler Kompromiss, den man von vielen anderen Geräten kennt. Die Erweiterungen des opsix gegenüber den Originalen, insbesondere natürlich die Multimode-Filter, aber auch Filter-FM, Ringmodulation und Wellenfaltung erweitern die Klangpalette noch weiter in Richtungen, die mit analogen Synthesizern in der Regel nicht abgedeckt werden. Die Effekte (inklusive des Halls) sind ebenfalls sehr brauchbar. Wer wie ich kein 5-Oktaven Keyboard benötigt (dafür gäbe es z.B. den Yamaha MODX6) und über einen externen Hardware-Sequenzer verfügt (ansonsten dann eher den Digitone, auch wenn der nur über vier Operatoren verfügt), wird mit dem opsix sicherlich Spaß haben. Gerade dann, wenn schon der ein oder andere Analogsynth vorhanden ist.

Innen hui, außen pfui
Estefane, 06.03.2021
Sound und Bedienung sind schön, gefallen mir insgesamt sehr und deshalb werde ich ihn behalten. Der Synth kann schon was, die Darstellung der Algorithmen über das Farbschema (Carrier/Modulator) ist cool. Man kann vielschichtige Sounds programmieren.

Die Verarbeitungsqualität lässt aber durchaus zu wünschen übrig. Die Tastatur fühlt sich billig und indirekt an, die Regler und Fader auf der Bedienoberfläche sind noch ok. Im direkten Vergleich dazu war der Minilogue Xd von der Verarbeitungsqualität wesentlich besser.
