Udo Audio SUPER 6 Binaural Synthesizer

One of the most awaited keyboards of the year has landed!

UDO Audio Super 6 Binaural Synthesizer  was launched at Superbooth 2019, which seems a long time ago given everything that has happened since, and Udo Audio Super 6 is finally here and ready.

The Super 6 features a 12-voice polyphonic, binaural analogue-hybrid synth with FPGA digital oscillators and voltage-controlled analogue technology, despite its very vintage look. The ‘binaural’ reference here refers to the fact that, when used in this mode, the Super 6 features a true stereo path- the 12 voices are twinned to create six ‘Super’ voices, which explains the name of the synth as well.

In addition, the parameters for each oscillator can be controlled independently, meaning that you can create some complex and ear-grabbing stereo images, though you can turn binaural mode off and have standard 12-voice polyphony if you would rather. Both oscillators feature DDS (Direct Digital Synthesis) signal creation and can produce classic analogue waveforms, though the first oscillator also features a selection of 16 further user-selectable waveforms.

And, of course, you filter and amplifier sections, LFOs, envelopes and a modulation matrix. There are also an arpeggiator and step sequencer and dual stereo 24-bit effects – delay and chorus.

On the Super 6. the screen is not available – it is been designed very much as an intuitive, ‘hands-on’ synth. However, you do get a Fatar keyboard with velocity and aftertouch, expression and sustain, and there is also support for MPE controllers.

Commenting on the launch, UDO Audio’s team leader George Hearn said: “The result of years of hard work and many iterations of development, my mission with the Super 6 has been to harmonise what I love about archetypal electronic instrument design with modern, novel synthesis technologies that excel at generating spatially dynamic results.

“The architecture leverages the vibrancy of a true-stereo analogue signal path, driving it with extremely high sample rate, spectrally versatile digital audio, and presents you with straightforward, expressive controls of superior mechanical build quality”.

“I would love to see this instrument with the wear and tear of many years of use. Experiment, play, learn, and, hopefully, love it like we do!”

The UDO Super 6 comes in Blue or Black configurations.

The Super 6 is now available and costs £2,295/ $2,800.
