video upload by Anthony Marinelli Music

"Join me for a drop-in visit with UDO Audio. I'll go inside their bungalow at Superbooth 2024 to learn about the Super 6, Super 8 and Super Gemini synthesizers.

We focused on the Super 8 polyphonic synthesizer and I was really impressed with its sound, simple to understand front panel layout and features. Listen to the sounds and tell me what you think.

Dave Smith Poly Evolver soundscape - And all that we could see was gone

video upload by MIDERA

"Following my other recent videos, trying to just take my synths on a journey and see where they take me. I've most enjoyed the Jupiter 6 and JD-800, surprisingly so. I thought - the next synth should be the Poly Evolver. I figured this was a good one to test because 1) it's so unique and 2) it is somewhat similar to the UDO Super 6 minus two voices, like a Super 4. They both are 'binaural' in a sense, with two oscillators per side. I think the Poly Evolver isn't likely as fluid as the UDO to edit though, given that you edit the oscillators so independently on the Poly Evolver. Also, you can't double the voice count when throwing the synth into monoaural or however you'd call it on the PEK.

What I've noticed for myself is that... I seem to get the same sounds out of the PEK every time I play it. That's for sure on me, but it just gets this 'sound' that is hard to describe, but maybe it's just its 'character'.

Well, I was left feeling a little underwhelmed by this exploration. Yes - I'm still trying to sell gear to grab a Super 6 to see what it can do for me.

Note: My camera wasn't recording the first 10 minutes. I didn't realize this till later, so I took that audio and threw it at the end of the video and put some placeholder footage there. My apologies.

UDO Super Gemini - George Hearn

video upload by UDO Audio

"What better way to cap off our Artists Meet Gemini series than with George, the creator himself, giving us an excellent demonstration of what the instrument can do! There are many videos of George playing his instruments scattered across the web, but I hope we can all agree this one is pretty special."

New UDO Super 8 Press Release & Pics

You've seen the SUPERBOOTH videos.

The official press release follows:

The UDO Super 8

The Super 8 is a 16-voice polyphonic, bi-timbral analog-hybrid performance synthesizer. Employing superior hands-on controls, an expressive 61-note weighted keyboard with polyphonic aftertouch and all the powerful, flexible and addictive sound of the UDO Audio family.


Introducing the next evolution in the Super series. At the core of the Super 8 is two independent binaural analog-hybrid synthesizer signal chains using UDO’s proprietary and proven synthesizer technology. With up to 16 voices of polyphony and two unique timbres each with their own independent effect chain, this instrument is analog reimagined. Like its larger sibling the Super Gemini, voices and timbral layers can be split, dualled, sequenced all at the touch of a single control.

Powered by complex FPGA digital oscillators, the Super 8 is decorated with expansive tonal features such as wave morphing, cross & ring modulation, bi-directional sync and an all-analog signal path to the output, inspired by the analog poysynth heavyweights of lore. Equipped with a 61-note semi-weighted keybed with polyphonic aftertouch, left hand performance controls and 256 performance and patch slots, 32 interchangeable waveforms and 16 sequences, the Super 8 balances power, playability and performance.

Sitting in between the Super 6 and the Super Gemini in size and power, the Super 8 puts the player first using high quality tactile control elements with our user-centric intuitive design philosophy that inspires exploration and sonic play. Adopting a similar true-stereo Binaural signal path with dual FPGAs and twin effects processors like the Gemini, and yet retaining the portability and road-friendly personality of the Super 6. The Super 8 will be a long time friend and partner in your adventures in sound.

Super. Evolved.

As the next evolution in the Super family, the 16-voice Super 8 sits confidently between the Super 6 and the Super Gemini. This synth is the distillation of the UDO philosophy of the power of play — with the dual cores and playability features of it’s bigger cousin, all in a more compact and simplified presentation — it’s the best of both worlds.

Duality in Sound

The Super 8 allows you to effortlessly transition between two independent synth layers, inspiring textural, deep and rich soundscapes at a touch. With UDO’s championed powerful, flexible and immediate sound, this synthesizer is designed to take you on a sonic journey.

Respected Tradition
Meets Cutting-Edge Innovation

Using the tried and tested UDO framework of state-of-the-art FPGA digital architecture with archetypal voltage-controlled synthesizer technology, the Super 8 is a harmonious meeting of old and new in ideas and techniques. All contained within a no-expense-spared build with the highest quality components, The Super 8 is an instrument for life.

SUPERBOOTH24 Program Schedule

Press release follows:

The SUPERBOOTH BERLIN is excited to finally announce its performance and work- shop programming for this year’s SUPERBOOTH24.

After the record-breaking SUPERBOOTH23, the latest edition of the world’s largest trade fair and festival for electronic musical instruments is happening from the 16th to the 18th of May 2024 at FEZ-Berlin.

As a “trade fair with the spirit of a festival”, the Superbooth presents the latest products and technical developments in the realm of synthesizers and studio technology with over 250 exhibitors from all over the world, while also offering a comprehensive cultural program that celebrates the culture and joy of electronic music-making.

Over 30 international artists will be performing on three outdoor stages (including the new “Strandbar” stage) as well as two indoor stages for presen- tations and lectures. On the lineup for SUPERBOOTH24 are artists as varied as the Oscar award winning Hildur Guðnadóttir, the popular club performer Stimming, the Live-Techno artist and Lady Gaga collaborator Lady Starlight and the modular expert TamiX hailing from China.

The full performance program can be found over at under the rider “Events”.

Aside from these musical performances, there will also be workshops offe- ring an introduction to the world of modular synthesizers (including one specifically for women and nonbinary people), DIY Workshops, and numerous lecture concerts in which popular brands like Bitwig, UDO Audio und Korg Berlin will be personally demonstrating their latest products.

The SUPERBOOTH is always trying to create an open and welcoming space in which everyone that is interested can learn and experience. Part of that is the MINIBOOTH for children and teenagers, which offers adolescents a playful look into the world of electronic music-making and was already a fully sold-success last year. The MINIBOOTH will be happening as its own event on the weekend be- fore Superbooth, from the 9th to the 12th of May.

Those looking for a refreshment between this dense schedule will also be happy with the Superbooth’s comprehensive catering offering. New this year is a rooftop area located on the top of the FEZ-building with a bar, allowing visitors to end the evening in a relaxed atmosphere with a great view. And as always, there is also the idyllic „Bungalowdorf” located in the forest surrounding the FEZ.

As a mix between a trade fair, international scene meeting, conference and festival, the Superbooth is a forward-looking event that combines different aspects to create a unique space for musical encounters and experiences.

Pre-sale tickets are available over at under the rider “Tickets”. A three-day ticket is 98 euros (reduced: 79 euros), a one-day ticket is

39 euros (reduced: 29 euros). As always, there will also be a ticket box office at the event. We recommend arriving by public transport (S-Bahn station Wuhlheide), as parking opportunities near the event location are limited.

U.D.O. SUPER GEMINI & SUPER 6 live performance

video upload by synthlegends

"Live Performance of the U.D.O. Super Gemini in Split mode (first tune) and Dual mode (second tune) plus the Super 6. So I played live three sounds.

The first tune is a 90 ies style rave track with super saw arpeggio and fat octabass sound on Super Gemini plus reso sweep sound on the super 6.

The second tune is a layered piano acompaning with the super 6 arpeggio."

UDO SUPER GEMINI custom performances - no talking

video upload by synthlegends

"In this video I demonstrate my own programmed presets and also one or two factory presets. I played them mainly in DUAL MODE, so I used two presets and layered them. I recorded them via both output pairs for upper and lower sound directly in the audio interface without additional processing or FX. The SUPER GEMINI is a very flexible and great sounding hybrid synthesiser with a lot of insane performance and live tweaking possibilities. You can use up to 8 pedals, the touch strip and a poly aftertouch keyboard for multiple routings. Thanks for watching this video, hope till the ende, because it is quite long."

"Kicking off our mini-series of 'Artists Meet Gemini', Episode 1 is
no one other than Georgie Ward: Pianist and Composer from Bristol, fresh off a global stadium tour with Dua Lipa, and ubiquitous session keys player for the likes of Cat Burns and Jung Kook to name a few.

Over the last few years, we've had the pleasure of working with Georgie, and approaching the release of our new instrument we relished the opportunity to get her thoughts on the Super Gemini. Having never even seen the instrument prior to the filming of this, I think we can all agree the short performance is nothing short of extraordinary.
