The UDO Super 6 is a binaural polyphonic synthesizer
The UDO Super 6 is a unique concept in that it has a full-stereo signal path from oscillators to outputs.
The idea behind the new UDO Super 6 synthesizer is the ability to control the stereo placement of oscillators from the ground up. Most traditional synthesizers generate oscillators as monophonic signals and then apply stereo effects, unison or various other techniques, while the UDO Super 6 allows for full binaural sound design from the source.
The synth features various voice modes allowing you to quickly switch between a variety of different polyphonic or monophonic setups easily, you’ve got advanced control over the individual voices or the ability to control them all via simple macro controls.
The Super 6 is robust and features a 49-key Fatar keyboard with assignable velocity and aftertouch, it’s super intuitive featuring no menu-diving whatsoever.
The Super 6 is designed to mimic the immediacy and playability of some classic vintage synthesizers, with an advanced set of features under the hood.
The oscillator engine is designed on FPGA chips allowing for huge variety in terms of generating and processing the signal. Thereafter the signal is fed through 12 analog filters, VCAs and more.
The ins and outs…
The Super 6 features USB for MIDI in and out or patch, sequence and waveform transfer. It’s also got traditional MIDI I/O, external audio input, various control pedal inputs and of course main stereo output and a headphone output.
Each voice in the Super 6 features two main oscillators, DDS1 is a wavetable oscillator with 16 user-definable waveforms and DDS2 offers FM, Sync and Sub modes amongst others.
On the end of the signal path are dual stereo 24-bit digital effects, a delay which can be tempo-synced and a Juno-style chorus. So far, the UDO Super 6 comes in two colours, blue and grey.
