  1. Nice demo for loopers. And for this fine new synth OB6. Really smart marketing moves by Dave Smith, capitalising on the Prophet architecture and giving us more vintage flavours. Yes, good times!

  2. Ok, this actually impressed me… the other demos were lacking. Still doesn’t sound like an OB-8 (or multiple SEMs) to my ears, but sounds like Dave and Tom made a baby.

  3. Stunning tones – I’m a guitarist who has become a synth aficionado in my later years (and I can’t play keys at all).

    I need this synth, I just wish I could justify the purchase!


  4. Stunning!

    I hope this also comes as a module (like the fantastic Prophet 6). A keyboard analog with 4 octaves might not fit all players.

    The Prophet 6 module combined with an 88 weighted keaboard has the feel of the legendary Prophet T8 and combined with an X-Key 37 it’s a compact monster!

    So I hope that Tom and Dave already started to order the hardware elements for the module version 😉
