Can you guess which is the P10?

Luke hasn't posted the answer yet, so it's a good time to cast your guess.

Hopefully this isn't interpreted as "the P10 and P6 sound so close nobody can tell the difference".  Intentionally causing a patch to sound the same on two synths does not mean those synths always sound the same, as it leaves many factors unexplored.  Also not a completely dry signal here -- running through a common set of FX can create a lowest common denominator effect in a comparison like this.  But thank you Luke for doing this, just the same... neat idea..

I guessed B might be the 10. Really not much in it. I felt B had a bit more low end presence. No idea if this means itís the 10 though.

I'd say Synth B is the P10, judging by the lack of high-end harmonics compared to Synth A.
Although, to be fair, on the first patch they're pretty well matched, since the filter is not wide open. Good programming job there.

This could also be achieved since the P6 has a Sub oscillator while the P5/10 doesn't.

A - P6
B - P10

Good programing and sound example.

There are some areas they sound almost identical. But even with something different synths and brands such for instance a Juno-60 and Prophet 5/10 there are certain sounds that can be very close (I guess) and still they sound very different overall. Other sounds such basses and filter actions will differ more between the P6 and P5/10. But this tells me the P6 is a great sounding synth... and people compare the P6 to the P5/10, not the opposite.
