OB6 Mono/Unison 1-6 Voice Illustration/Improv

Published on Dec 28, 2018 Kris Lennox

"The OB-6's place as one of the finest polys on the market is (I assume!!) by this stage likely without question. But the big question is: is the OB-6 also one of the finest monosynths DSI has ever produced?!

In mono mode it is brutal. For around the first minute of this video I'm layering the voices, starting with only one, through to all 6. This gives a good sense of the size of the sound. Sometimes a sound can be 'too big' - which is where the voice-layering/stripping possibilities are very useful.

At around 1:13 I'm turning the detune knob - hence the wider sound. Again, great sound.

Towards the end of the improv, the tone reminded me of Chicane's music. I think the track is called 'Fibreglasses', but I could be wrong, as I haven't listened to it since the album release. I'm probably not even playing it in the correct key!

PS excuse any errors - this was a literal 'sit down and hit record' improv as a Friday-night break from a transcription project I'm working on.

All best
