Sequential OB-6 Desktop Analog Synth Module PRE-ORDER


Dave Smith OB-6 Desktop Analog Synth Module

SKU: DSI-OB6M Category:

Desktop Version of Tom Oberheim/Dave Smith Synth Collaboration to Ship in Early Fall

The essence of OB-6’s vintage sound is its discrete voltage-controlled oscillators (plus sub-oscillator) and discrete,

state-variable filter, both based on the classic Oberheim SEM (the core of Tom Oberheim’s acclaimed 4-voice and

8-voice synthesizers). Voltage-controlled amplifiers complete the all-analog signal path. Said Tom Oberheim: “The

desktop module sounds every bit as good as the OB-6 keyboard because, on the inside, it’s exactly the same — the

same VCOs, VCFs, and VCAs and the same big, in-your-face SEM sound that people have always loved.”

The module weighs approximately 13 lbs (5.9 kg) and measures 20.75” L x 7.8” W x 4.4” H (52.0 cm x x

11.2 cm).
