Sequential / DSI OB-6 Synthesizer

Published on Apr 4, 2020 Matt Johnson Jamiroquai

Update: At 2:45 Matt Johnson mentions the OB-6 is not an OB-Xa. He's correct of course. The OB-Xa had a switchable 2-Pole and 4-Pole filter. The OB-6 has an SEM 2-Pole based filter that can transition between LP and HP modes with a BP switch. I sold my OB-Xa and picked up an OB-6. They are different. The OB-6 has a certain fuzziness about it while the OB-Xa sounded "tamer/cleaner" to me. I'd recommend this comparison by Retrosound, as well as some additional demos here.

"My views on the fantastic DSI OB-6 plus some sounds I have programmed."

  1. Heard you get a more vintage sound from the OB-6/Prophet 6 by not going any higher than ~7-8 on any oscillator volume.
