Amazing instrument, a new classic
e_maniscalco 15.09.2019
I come from a Prophet REV2 (8-voice), which I liked very much, but the OB-6 is simply on a different level. The REV2 featured warm, analog signal but a quite cold and digital interface with an OLED tiny screen, which is fine if one is searching for a very versatile and capable production tool. But for playing live and experimenting, well... the OB-6 'feels' like a real analog instrument also in the user interface and playability. Less knobs, less voices, less modulation possibilities, good old digits for programs (no silly names) but what a SOUND! The tone feels full, musical and creamy in every configuration/modulation. Amazing filter. Great factory programs. Great design, great size. In one word: a great synth. If you are looking for a definitive instrument, go for this one or the Prophet 6... or both! Mine arrived with a slightly scratched black key (probably it came out of the factory like that). It doesn't bother me much since it's only visible when looking very closely, but I wish Sequential were a bit more careful for a top-class instrument in this price range. Apart from this, totally perfect service from Thomann, quick delivery!

Present classic - Future classic
ooloo 03.11.2021
Bought mine a week ago and I'm already in love! Nothing I've ever tried gives me such a pleasure to work on; every time I sit with it makes me feel excited and inspired! It's hard to explain what makes it such a great synth but it's not just the sound, which is beyond fantastic, it's also the ergonomics and the looks; everything is just right! The best synth on the market atm. I'm coming from the software world and I never understood the appealing of analog synths, until I've tried this one! I came to a local music store to try a Hydrasynth (which is great btw) and there was an OB-6 next to it; tried it and that was it! Was thinking about the Prophet 10 rev4 too but this one has it all; wouldn't mind having the rev4 too but I had money only for one of them and I chose the OB-6 after brief thinking. Decided to buy from Thomann because imo they're the best! ...I've never had problems with return policy and the 3-yrs warranty makes it a no brainer!

Great sounding vintage monster
no5leep 31.01.2022
OB-6 is easily one of the best sounding analog synths on the market. Its is not super versatile like Rev2 nor cheap like Deepmind, but boy those SEM filters kicks buts. Sound is amazing, build quality is great.
