The Super 6 Desktop is our fully-featured 12-voice polyphonic, binaural analog-hybrid synthesizer reimagined in a compact and super-flexible package. A harmonious marriage of state of the art FPGA digital hardware oscillators and voltage controlled analog tech. It is flexible, powerful and refined with a gorgeous analog tone. Rich and evolving textures are easily teased from the unique super-wavetable core and can be shaped and manipulated with the binaural analog signal path and flexible modulation.
The desktop Super 6 takes everything the Super 6 is famous for and reimagines it in a more compact and super-flexible package. It is VESA compatible for use with widely-available monitor arms/mounts, rack mountable with a 7U footprint, and comes complete with robust retractable feet for a more ergonomic experience in desktop use settings.
In Binaural mode, the Super 6 features a true stereo signal path in which the instrument’s twelve voices are twinned to form six stereo ‘super’ voices. Consequently, the left and right channels — and each of the player’s ears — are assigned their own complete synthesizer voice. Parameters for both channels of each super voice may be independently controlled, facilitating the player to create rich and unique stereo images.
The Super 6 is a love-letter to the classic analogue synthesizer, brought firmly into the present with cutting-edge technology under the hood and a no-compromise approach to sound character, build quality and interface design. The rich sound that UDO has been championed for, paired with a robust, compact and inviting form factor with smooth, solid and responsive controls throughout, it cries out to be played.
Offering the flexible and immediate control, gorgeous analog sound and unrivalled build quality of the Super 6, but in a more compact package. The Super 6 Desktop is a fully-featured Super 6 analog-hybrid 12 voice synthesizer, housed in a newly designed all-metal chassis. The Super 6 Desktop also includes ergonomic features such as VESA mount compliance, optional rack ears (7U) and robust flip up feet, as well as a huge 24-voice Super 6 polychain option.
In Binaural mode, the Super 6 features a true stereo signal path in which the instrument’s twelve voices are twinned to form six stereo ‘super’ voices. Consequently, the left and right channels — and each of the player’s ears — are assigned their own complete synthesizer voice. Parameters for both channels of each super voice may be independently controlled, facilitating the player to create rich and unique stereo images. The effect ranges from subtle to extreme stereo movement, creating an enhanced sense of spatial positioning relative to “conventional” monaural signal-chains panned at their output.
Enormous flexibility at the player's fingertips through simple controls and a carefully designed front-panel. Going deeper, there is an intuitive and immediate modulation system based around the performance area switches. For those who want to go further, every panel control can be targeted for modulation, all simultaneously and all with unique amounts.
Alongside an analog amplifier section, the Super 6’s main filter is an analog 4-pole, 24 dB per octave, resonant low-pass filter. It is preceded by a voltage controlled high-pass filter that can either be off, fixed, or can also track the low-pass filter cutoff for band-pass operation.
An instrument is cherished not just for the way it sounds but for the way it feels to play. We have worked tirelessly on the physical design to foster an immediate connection with the player. There has also been no expense spared on the build quality, with a rugged metal housing and solid control elements throughout.
