not really, when filters open its kinda saturated, w slight rolloff in highs. this character of highs its unlike any other poly ive heard. sometimes u want this, like on bandpass pads or acidic seq, and sometimes it gets shrill and out of place. when filter gets closed a bit, and this edge shaved off, it's more reminiscent of Obies of yesteryear (pre-cem era) sound. warm and organic in mids and mid lows.toonelind wrote:doesn't a6 have that same sizzle in it's sounds? i played it several years ago and have listened to many demos lately and it seems to be a common quality of a6 also.mao wrote:goldphinga,
All the pads, strings and brass have that "sizzle". You can call it it's "color", "prophet sign" but as said it's only a taste point of view.
the Curtis or cem sizzle, is very unique - exciting, sparkly. A6 doesn't have it. P08 definetely does, but its smoother, not as as agressive as with some early 80s curtis boards, like P5 rev3 or OB-Xa. i always felt CEM sound complemented A6 very nicely, so first poly i bought after A6 was an OB-Xa.
