Die Specs des Hardware-Hybrid-Synths sind jetzt verfügbar

U.D.O. Audio Super 6 kommt


Auf der letzten Superbooth wurde der Hybrid-Synthesizer Super 6 von U.D.O. Audio schon vorgestellt. Jetzt wurden auch die Specs des Hardware-Boliden rausgerückt.


Der von Axel Hartmann designte Edel-Synth bietet eine 12stimmige, binaurale (zwei unabhängige Signalpfade), hybride Klangerzeugung mit analogen Resonanz-Filtern und zwei FPGA-basierten digitalen Oszillatoren pro Stimme. Anscheinend wird es auch eine optionale multi-timbrale Betriebsart geben, die man kostenpflichtig entsperren kann.

Hier die Features von Super 6:

  • Two Wavetable FPGA-based Direct Digital Synthesiser Oscillators per voice.
  • DDS1 (Direct Digital Synthesizer)
  • FPGA Based Super-Wavetable Oscillator Core sampled at 40MHz with Centroid-Oscillator and 6 sister oscillators dynamically detuned & de-phased in the stereo field
  • Sine, Sawtooth, Squarewave, Triangle, Noise
  • 16 Wavetables that can be user-defined
  • Range adjustable from 2’ to 64’
  • DDS2
  • FPGA Based Wavetable Oscillator Core sampled at 40MHz
  • Sinewave, Sawtooth, Square, Triangle, Noise and Pulse Waveforms
  • Hard-Sync to DDS1
  • Crossfade with DDS1 with adjustable split-point on the keyboard

  • DDS2 to DDS1 Cross Modulation for Deep FM Sounds
  • ENV1 Invertible Hold-Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release, Multiple Destinations
  • Looping Mode Selectable Keyboard-Tracking for LFO and FM Duties
  • ENV2 Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release, Multiple Destinations
  • Main LFO with rate adjustable from 0.05Hz to 20kHz in Low and High-frequency modes
  • One LFO per-voice implementation
  • Left – Right Phase Control for Stereo Effects and Harnessing The Binaural Sound Engine
  • One-Shot Mode for Envelope Duties
  • Keyboard Tracking Mode for FM sounds
  • LFO1 can be mapped through the DDS1 or DDS2 Audio path in either Fixed or Tracking modes for use as a Drone or Third-Oscillator
  • Free-Running, or Reset on note press or Beginning of Bar for Sequencer/Arpeggiator
Modulation Matrix
  • Intuitive Modulation Matrix For Second-Tier Modulation Functions
  • LEDs give clear feedback on assignment Depths
  • 20x Audio Rate Oversampling Computation
