UDO Super 6 Binaural Hybrid Polysynth Sounds

Published on Mar 2, 2020 Perfect Circuit

"In this video, we take a look at the UDO Super 6, a "12-voice polyphonic binaural analog-hybrid synthesizer with Super-wave technology". And while that might seem like a mouthful, this synth remains accessible and inspiring. Read more about the Super 6 here:

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."

  1. Wow, gee, and here I was ignorantly calling it "stereo" since the 1950s. Wow, thanks 21st Century for yet another correction that means absolutely nothing. Where would we be without you? Off the edge of the time cliff, I suppose.
