We talked with DSI’s Carson Day, who gave us an overview of the OB-6 synth module.
Here are audio demos of the OB-6 sound engine:
The module has the same controls as the keyboard version, and DSI says that the OB-6 module is exactly the same internally as the keyboard version — the same VCOs, VCFs, and VCAs and the same Oberheim poly sound.
They’ve also added a poly chain feature, so that any two OB-6s can be paired for 12-voice polyphony.
Pricing and Availability
The Dave Smith Instruments OB-6 desktop module will be available in the early fall. Projected MAP is $2,299. Price and specifications subject to change. See the DSI site for more info.
