Full Super 6 Spec List:


DDS 1 (OSCILLATOR 1)

  • FPGA-based Super-wave oscillator core sampled at 50MHz with a centroid oscillator and six sister oscillators that can be dynamically de-phased in the stereo field
  • Waveshapes: sine, sawtooth, square, triangle, noise and 16 userdownloadable alternative waveforms
  • Alternative DDS 1 waveform format:
  • Normalized, single-cycle waveform with 4096 points
  • 16-bit signed integer format samples
  • Bandlimited at sampling frequency/8 (Nyquist/4).

If 4096 Hz is your sampling frequency, then 512 Hz is the upper limit of your passband.

  • Binary file with no header data and file extension .ws6

DDS 2 (OSCILLATOR 2)

  • FPGA-based algorithmic oscillator core sampled at 50MHz
  • Waveshapes: sine, sawtooth, square, triangle, noise, pulse
  • Can be hard-synced to DDS 1
  • LFO mode
  • Sub oscillator mode (can be activated when in LFO mode)
  • Pulse waveform with variable pulse width and PWM

DDS MODULATORS

  • LFO and envelope modulation of DDS 1 & DDS 2 pitch
  • Selectable ½ Super or full Super mode for DDS 1
  • Sister oscillator detune spread control for Super waves
  • Pulse-width control for pulse waveform
  • LFO and/or ENV 1 can modulate the sister oscillator

detune spread for the Super waves and the pulse-width for the standard waves

  • DDS 2 to DDS 1 cross-modulation for deep FM Sounds 01

AUDIO INPUT

  • Stereo audio input that feeds through the VCA, VCF and effects section
  • Gate triggering of envelopes and LFO 1 based on audio input level with a variable-gain input stage

LFO 1

  • Main LFO with low and high-frequency modes, rate adjustable from 0.05 Hz to 20 kHz
  • Left-right phase control for stereo effects, harnessing the binaural sound engine
  • Can be free-running or reset on note press
  • One-shot mode allows LFO 1 to act as an additional envelope
  • Keyboard tracking mode for high-frequency LFO (useful for FM sounds)
  • LFO 1 can be mapped through the DDS 1 or DDS 2 audio path in either fixed or tracking high-frequency modes for use as a drone or a third oscillator
  • Can be synchronized with the sequencer and arpeggiator as well as an external clock

MIXER

  • Adjusts the mix-level of DDS 1 and DDS 2 audio signals
  • When in X-Fade mode, adjusts split point on the keyboard of crossfaded DDS 1 and DDS 2 (or audio input) signals

VOLTAGE CONTROLLED FILTER

  • The SSI2144 reprises the SSM2044 of legacy chipmaker Solid State Micro Technology, which many believe to be the best-sounding analog synthesis filter IC ever produced. Based on Dave Rossum’s patented classic improved ladder topology, the SSI2144 allows rich tonal characteristics that showcase the very best attributes of subtractive synthesis.
  • Analogue 4-pole low pass self-resonant filter
  • Two levels of overdrive
  • High pass filter with fixed frequency or linked to low pass filter for a bandpass response
  • Selectable keyboard tracking modes with filter autotune for accurate keyboard tracking
  • Modulation by ENV 1 and/or ENV 2, LFO 1 and DDS 2

VOLTAGE CONTROLLED AMPLIFIER

  • Analogue VCA with selectable fixed or variable envelope (ENV 2) modulation
  • LFO 1 modulation
  • Dynamics control for selectable velocity sensitivity

ENV 1

  • Invertible Hold-Attack-Decay-Sustain-Release, mappable through modulation matrix

CONTROLLER SECTION

  • Voice modes: Poly 1, Poly 2, Solo, Legato, variable size and type Unison
  • LFO 2 with rate and delay controls, selectable triggered and always-on modes
  • Variable portamento
  • Expression pedal and sustain pedal inputs
