Synth education guru Marc Doty has put together a mammoth collection of videos, embedded as a playlist above, looking at the Dave Smith Instruments OB-6 synthesizer.
The OB-6 is a new 6-voice synthesizer, developed by Dave Smith & Tom Oberheim, featuring an all-analog signal path and discrete VCOs and filters.
THe OB-6 offers a sound engine inspired by Oberheim’s original SEM (the core of his acclaimed 4-voice and 8-voice synthesizers). The new instrument is designed to combine vintage SEM tone with the stability and flexibility of modern synth technology.
Doty’s video series includes over a dozen videos, and covers key elements of the OB-6 design, including the oscillators, the filter and modulation options. It also offers a comparison between the OB-6 and DSI’s Prophet 6 synthesizer.
