do not confuse this with the ob8..
want more synth, that never went into real production .. einige Synthesizer, die es nie geschafft haben.. Forum..
it is basically a Matrix1000 , but expanded, it has 8 voices (or better say it had?), was shown on NAMM 1989, it had also some Masterkey functions possibly like the Xk, which has a nice Arper with random mode (I had one, those days..), it is multitimbral also.. its price was about that of 2 M1000s,..
let me guess: people wanted more control and went for the m1000 if they like presets.. other still bought the matrix6 or ..got a digital one. 1989 was the revival of the analog synths, but I don’t know if Oberheim knew about. Anyone knows what Tom Oberheim does today?
they/he has also up: an Akai Synth that had 32 Amp and 32 Pitch Envs, an additive Synth HS1000 from 1988, since linking the pics is not allowed / possible for the blog I simply post it here.. so please check dvdborn directly..
