Two Legends. One Instrument.
The OB-6 is a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between two of the most influential synth designers in history — Dave Smith and Tom Oberheim. It’s an all-analog, 6-voice poly synth with voltage-controlled oscillators, a state-variable filter, and voltage-controlled amplifiers, inspired by Tom’s original SEM design — the bedrock of his legendary 4-voice and 8-voice synthesizers.
Manufactured and sold by Dave Smith Instruments, the OB-6 features six discrete analog voices with two oscillators (plus sub oscillator) per voice, continuously variable waveshapes with triangle, sawtooth, and variable-width pulse waves, X-mod with 2 sources and 5 destination, a 64-step polyphonic step sequencer, dual digital effects that include faithful recreations of Tom’s acclaimed phase shifter and ring modulator, a full-featured arpeggiator, and a powerful, in-your-face, sonic signature like no other instrument.
This analog powerhouse is packed into a four-octave, semi-weighted keyboard with velocity and channel aftertouch, making it perfect for stage or studio.<h2 class="headertext" id="a-fusion-of-two-great-design-ideas">A fusion of two great design ideas.</h2>

The OB-6 looks incredible... glad to see it's got semi-weighted keys...dual digital effects sounds really interesting too... I've never had a synth that had ring modulator built in, but it sounds like alot of fun!
Also interested in the Korg miniloggue... I like that it's got an oscilloscope display
Nice, we have an entry at http://www.gearogs.com/gear/4524-Dave-Smith-Instruments-OB-6

Yeh, I agree. Would love to get my sticky paws on it and try it out in person soon :-)
The OB 6 sure is a nice synth from what I've heared so far. Can't wait to test it in person.
