This video, via Perfect Circuit, offers an extended audio demo of the new UDO Super 6 Binaural Hybrid Polysynth.
The UDO Super 6 is a 12-voice polyphonic synth that can also be used in a 6-voice binaural mode. In binaural mode, each voice has an independent signal path – instead of a mono voice, sweetened with effects – and there are options to cross-modulate between the two channels.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
Because of its distinctly Roland-inspired design, the Super 6 feels immediately approachable—as if you’re interacting with an instrument you’ve known for ages. Hiding beneath its welcoming exterior, though, is an advanced, state-of-the-art synthesis engine.
The Super 6 uses FPGA-based oscillators followed by analog filters/drive, and analog VCA, and high-quality digital effects, providing the best of both analog and digital synthesis methods.
Super waves allow for supersaw-like clusters spread across stereo space, but with any waveform accessible (including a selection of colorful wavetables). But perhaps most interest is the Super 6’s binaural capability: in which pairs of voices are assigned to the left and right channels to act as “super voices.” These super voices offer the potential for phase-displaced modulation, creating filter sweeps and tremolo that fill up the stereo field with an uncanny organic sound.
All this combined with several options for rich stereo chorus, high-quality stereo delay, and overall remarkable build quality and playing response, the Super-6 at once familiar and strikingly new.
