Feature Request: add a duophonic option in the unison list for the OB-6 and P6

Right now the unison button options are 1,2,3,4,5,6,CHd. I propose adding "DUO" also which would enable a duophonic mode. I think this might be possible with just a firmware change.

Or maybe call it PA2 for 2 note paraphonic?

Thoughts?

+1 For this.

The Jupiter 6 and The MKS80 have this. Unison mode will split the voices depending on how many keys are pressed.

1 Key On = 6 Voices per Key
2 Keys On = 3 Voices per Key
3 Keys On = 2 Voices per Key etc..

The 2 & 3 note unison chords sound great.
It also has Solo-Unison mode, which creates a mono synth which always has 6 voice Unison.

Would LOVE some bi-timbrality in there too, split and layer options? Yes please!

It would be really awesome to use monotimbral bass with a 5-voice poly synth on top of it... for example...

I agree that this would be awesome. One caveat, I would not like to lose the uniquely monosynth capabilities for retriggering (vs. not) and various trill options that are in the OB-6 / Prophet. It really is a superb monosynth for solo lead work (as well as it's 6-voice powers...)
