This is entirely OB6. I used a midi base track arrangement (MJ Starke) from the piece "Chi Vuoi Veder" by Renaissance composer Claudio Monteverdi for the trumpet, trombone, and flute. I added in choirs, plucked pieces and other sounds thruout. Strymon Big Sky used for some additional effects.
DSI Equipment: Poly Evolver Keyboard, Evolver desktop, Prophet 8,  Pro-2, OB6, P-12

Hey Folks,

here's some 80's inspired german NDW stuff.

All sounds from the OB-6 except the drums (and voice). ;-)

Do you like it?

I'm always impressed how fast and precise the workflow of sound design works on the OB-6. I LOVE YOU, OB-6!  :-*


Love the lead sound at 1.09!

The only sounds NOT made by the OB-6 are, as far as I remember: the drums, the pipe organ smoothing the low end, and some strings near the end. It's a song with a very basic melody - I'm just a self-trained hobbyist enjoying the OB-6 in my spare time  8)

Here's a track I did using the OB-6 as the main lead sound and also has the Tempest and Tetra featured.

If you have the time, please consider commenting on the youtube page and give it a vote.  Thank you!

Showing some more love for OB-6 with a dedicated video.  ALL source sounds from the OB-6 including percussion with minimal effect from MPC. Cheers.

I don't know if this is the right place to put this, but I googled how to get bell/chimes from a synth, and none of their ways were working. But I took a few ideas and pretty much stumbled on a chime that sounds exactly like a doorbell chime. Forgive my amateurish descriptions of settings.

I also don't know how to post recordings yet, but I'm working on it.

Using only VCO2 (as it has the better triangle wave):
-FREQ full clockwise
-Detune centered
-Waveform full counter-clockwise
-KEYBOARD button on

-VCO1 minimum
-VCO2 maximum
Sub Octave full counter-clockwise

-FREQ at 2 o'clock (vary narrow range here where it works. Turning only a tiny amount changes the chime)
-RESONANCE at full clockwise
-NOTCH full counter-clockwise
-TRACK half or full, on or off. Adds a subtle nuance.

-Both ATTACK knobs full counter-clockwise
-Top DECAY at 12 o'clock, bottom DECAY at 2
-SUSTAIN both knobs full counter-clockwise
-RELEASE top knob at 3 o'clock, bottom knob at 2

-Top knob at 2 o'clock (another very narrow range to get the chime sound), bottom at full clockwise

No X-Modulation, no VCO1, no LFO, don't even need effects as it has a natural reverberation, or ringing out.
Now I just need to learn the notes to "Tubular Bells," and "Carol of the Bells." Just in time for Christmas.

Is there a section such as, "How to make this sound?"

Here are two videos I did recently with the OB6 and the LFE.
