This is very encouraging and appreciated. Thanks to all of you!

I will respond more detailed later on, however, for now I just would like to understand better what with the "dark side" is meant? Like for example this pad - https://soundcloud.com/petermmahr/dsi-prophet-12-cpm-soundset-6 or like this Prophet-6 pad in here -https://soundcloud.com/petermmahr/bertl-theme If neither of that is what you are interested, can you please send me a youtube link or anything else?

Thank you,
Peter

Hi Peter, perhaps I should have elaborated more. My apologies. Rather than purely 'dark' in mood I was hinting more at what I refer to as the dark tone of the oberheim for want of a better description. Your demo of 'Aton Chor' displays an opening pad that is perhaps a good reference point and I absolutely love all things twin peaks and that applies also to your twin peaks pad on the P12. Earlier on this thread I posted two other examples, one from 'Synthetic things' and the other by 'Inhaltvideo'. The video by Synthetic things generally only demonstrates short sound design examples as presets for the OB-6 but, whilst I like the 'darker' tone and style of some of the sounds, most haven't been designed or played as pads which would have been nice to hear. The second example by Inhaltvideo gives perhaps the best example I can think of in terms of the 'dark' tone of the oberheim from 2:08 to 5:26 into the video. I've provided the link below so you can get an idea of what I mean. To be honest though, the music you have made so far is very nice as it is. So even if you provided more of the same you won't hear any complaints from me. :)

Hi,

Tomorrow I hopefully will have the time to read the whole thread as I think I am missing a lot here. :-)

I have added a short demo of three sounds to my blog https://www.petermmahr.com/arrival-of-the-dsi-ob-6/.

You can find the new demo right underneath demotrack #1 (which is on SoundCloud). The pad at the beginning starts with four chords dry followed by the same four chords with some bbd and a bit Chorus. I thought it might be of interest of how the OB-6 sounds w/o the internal EFX.

Well... and to me there is no doubt. Unfortunately not. It is not an either/or, it is like Paul posted on the previous page "They seem to be built to complement each other.". True.

Cheers,
Peter

Very good one, especially in the beginning (without and with effects). That gives a fair impression.

I know what you mean with "unfortunately." Dave is so mean to our wallets…

This thread has been incredibly helpful, its been great to see a combination of sound demonstrations and compositional applications of the synth.
Searching for the perfect sound... not found it yet :)

I made a song with pure 100% OB-6! All tracks, including 6 tracks of drums, programmed in the OB-6. No external effects or plug ins are used:

Just sounds like something from the 70s to me;)

I thought so, too.  Well, that must have been the objective of the guy who made it.  But it certainly offers a good sense of the instrument in action.

I'm thinking more and more that a Prophet '08 and an OB-6 would be a more redundant combination than a Prophet '08 and a Prophet-6, especially since I use the 2-pole setting on my P'08 much of the time.

Lovely sounds! Reminds me of Yazoo!

This is not helping my struggle between the P6 and OB6. I have the P6 but have been offered an OB6 as a swap  :-\

Thanks! I have both, also the P6. Very different beasts. For my taste I prefer the OB6. It's more vintage and the filter is more smooth. But also the P6 I like. Much better sounding than the P08, I used to have. Only my personal opinion of course.
