Korg Opsix Altered FM Synthesizer

The Korg’s opsix is officially been launched after 10 months on. The opsix was originally previewed at NAMM 2020, and is a 37-key keyboard,

The opsix has a six-operator FM sound structure like classic FM synthesizers, the Opsix goes further, featuring new operator modes, 11 filter options, 30 effects, a polyphonic step sequencer and more.

Korg opsix Altered FM Synthesizer ‘Reimagines’ FM Synthesis.

The opsix is built around a new six-operator sound generator that is designed to reimagine the FM sounds you are used to. There is a more diverse range of waveforms and operator modes, plus a filter that incorporates elements of subtractive synthesis – MS-20 and Polysix filter types are included. Hence, you will have analogue-style control over digital sounds.

With the opsix, Korg is seeking to do for FM synthesis what it did for wave sequencing with the Wavestate – update it and make it more accessible. Hence, the opsix is described as an “altered” FM synthesizer that promises to make exploring FM easier than ever before. Additionally, the opsix top panel is full of knobs and sliders. There is a hands-on operator mixer, plus six data entry knobs which, when used in combination with the OLED display, promise to significantly ease the editing process.

With the five operator modes, the opsix can generate sounds outside the realm of FM, and there are also 40 preset algorithms. You can also create your own algorithms from scratch. Modulation – three EGs and three LFOs, and 12 virtual patches to give you plenty of routing possibilities. You can use up three effects, choosing from 30 types.

If you fails anyway, there is a configurable randomize feature, which will generate a new sound for you.

The Opsix that they are introducing, though, is closer in design to the recently introduced Wavestate. And that’s how they are positioning the new synth:

“Much like Korg did when bringing wave sequencing back in a more powerful, more musical, and more immediately accessible way with wavestate, so was the approach to FM sound generation of the opsix, resulting in another incredibly flexible and unique synth.”


The Korg Opsix is available now.

    The keyboard sound engine goes far beyond traditional FM synth capabilities.
