Same developer behind the Modal 08 and Hearn-Morley SSM chip clones. Will be great no doubt.

its got three things going for it that gets me .. going?


1 analog
2 poly
3 sliders



to be frank i am somehow most excited about the last one - adore synths with predominantly slider UI (read: jupiters, sh serie), where pots are reserved only for special functions where they are best choice; like tune/transpose/octave/waveform.



let's hope they show something on superbooth

I don't think it is the same as the Modal. I may be wrong.

The connection is they're both Bristol based, here in the UK.

The Modal stand and the U-DO stand were separate at the Machine Bristronica event on Saturday here in Bristol.

Same developer, not same company.

That's not their new synth. That is a one-off analog poly that formed the basis of what became the Modal 08.

Photos of the new synth are in the other Instragram photos that have already been posted.

It gives me a tingly feeling and I think I like it.

Why would you demonstrate a prototype, and then post 'coming soon' images on Instagram, then?

No idea what their marketing plan is. But AFAIK, the synth demo'd at Bristronica (as well as the other silver one) are one-offs and they don't state anywhere that this is their new product. Images of the new synth are posted in the actual "we've got a new synth" posts. Pretty clearly a different design.

I get what you're saying.

However, there's a lot of 'coming soon' style hashtags, so something's brewing.

UDO Audio

Also, I was there on Saturday and heard a lot of talk about forthcoming projects.

After the River and the hybrids and synths like this I must say

The late 2010s are giving the late 1970s a run for the money

(especially for us who had to survive the *digital winter* of the 90s)

OMIDOG! It's got a proper IEC socket; I'm in.

ETA: 12 voice "binaural" but called "Super 6"

SUPER 6 - a 12 voice poly by UDO



UDO on Instagram: “Final checks on this beast before we take it to Machina Bristronica [email protected] @ elevator soundbristol . . . #UDO #thebeginning…”

New Super 6 - 12 Voice Polysynth From UDO Audio

well, well well, what have we here?

From what i can tell by the pictures:
12-voice polyphony
2 oscillators
2 lfo's (jay! )
a pole/mode switcheable filter
ADSR for both vca and vcf
master bass and treble shelf eq

i believe from the description and image, there are digital waves as an option besides classic saw, tri and sqr

description says binaural, i'm guessing that just means voice and/or oscillator panning

5 octave keyboard, minimalist design


me like...

The pics from the two links look like two completely different synths?

Two supersaws stacked for the ultimate trance experience?

Seems like the filter might be analogue. Wondering if it's modelled after something else, or a unique design.

So if Hearn is at UDO and Paula Maddox is at DOVE, who is left at MODAL?

On other note:
What with the brits and numbers?
I understood already they are not that set on dates.. all right, i like them, they can stay as long as they want ..

but on synths? wtf... the 002 had 12 voices, the 001 had 2 voices.. the super 6 has again 12 .. what are the numbers even referring to?
