Superbooth 2021: UDO Super 6 Desktop A ‘No-Compromise’ Compact Analog Hybrid Synthesizer


The official intro video:


A more portable version of the intuitive and versatile synth is coming.


UDO Audio has taken the wraps off the Super 6 desktop, a new compact and keyboard-free version of its acclaimed keyboard synth.


Given that this is billed as a “no-compromise” take on the Super 6, we believe that the functionality is very much similar, so you can expect a 12-voice polyphonic, binaural analogue-hybrid engine with FPGA digital oscillators and voltage-controlled analogue technology.


You can also expect filter and amplifier sections, LFOs, envelopes and a modulation matrix, along with an arpeggiator and step sequencer and dual stereo 24-bit effects (delay and chorus).



The Super 6 desktop has an interesting ‘wedge’ design – almost like a compact keyboard synth, but with knobs and buttons where the keyboard bit would be. Whether there’s any practical benefit to having this two-tier design remains to be seen, but it gives the instrument something of an ‘‘80s home computer’ look.


Here’s what they say about it:


“Our brand new, compact and no-compromise take on the Super 6 — offering the irresistible combination of a powerful and accessible musical instrument with flexible and immediate control, gorgeous analog sound and unrivalled build quality. All in a desirable portable format designed to open the Super 6 to a new audience.”


We are expecting more information on the Super-6 Desktop soon via the UDO website.
