Korg Opsix MkII – New version of the Opsix FM Synth.

Experience all the synth sounds
Opsix mk II is a digital synth like no other. Based on the original opsix sound engine, the polyphony and voicing have been expanded to include an astonishing 64 voices. It provides excellent performance and precise control.

Opsix‘s unique Operator Mixer gives you a deeper, more practical workflow by putting the FM synth in your hands as much as possible. By adding synthesis functions and programming, you can achieve even richer sounds.

And it’s fully compatible with the original opsix, opsix SE, and opsix native software sounds, including many great libraries.

Evolved to an astonishing number of voices, 64 voices.
opsix mk II has 64 voices, double the original’s 32 voices. You can enjoy tone editing without worrying about the number of polyphony. In addition, the operator/mixer section, which is the most distinctive feature of this product, has been given a new image color of green as an accent.

Operator mixer that can be understood by colour
The simple Opsix MK II operator mixer, consisting of six faders and knobs, is at the heart of every sound. Each part lights up in red to represent the carrier, and in blue to represent the modulator. By manipulating these, you can open up new sound creation possibilities and breathe new life into your musical ideas. This easy-to-understand, practical workflow is as much a part of OPSIX MK II’s uniqueness as the sound it delivers.

Provides intuitive control
Whether you’re fine-tuning a preset sound or building a patch from scratch, the six knobs on the right give you quick access to the parameters you need. It is seamlessly synchronized with the display so you can clearly define the direction of your workflow. Combined with the Operator Mixer, you can create new sounds easily and above all, have fun.

Choose from a wide range of analog-style filters, from the sharp KORG MS-20 lowpass/highpass filter to the powerful and smooth KORG Polysix lowpass filter, to add a vintage feel to your sound. There are also 2-pole and 4-pole lowpass, highpass, bandpass, and band reject filters with resonance.

It also has a built-in spectrum analyzer and oscilloscope, allowing you to visually check the tone you are creating through the screen.

Consolidate 6 syntheses into 1 unit
At its core, opsix is ​​nothing but exponential. Waveforms can be arranged and modulated in an almost infinite number of ways, making it easy to create sounds similar to many types of synthesis.

Subtractive
Achieve many cutting-edge and classic analog synth tones using up to six envelopes and multi-modeling filters.

Semi-Modular
Change the tone by changing the signal path. Changing the algorithm can dramatically change the sound by changing the connection routing between operators. No patch cable is needed then.

Analog (Modeling)
With an operating system similar to an analog synth and a rich variety of waveforms, you can quickly master everything from digital to analog sounds. Enjoy a variety of sounds such as deep bass, crisp leads, thick pad sounds, and fuzzy brass tones.

Waveshaping
By intentionally adding distortion to the waveform, aggressive overtones such as harmonics or dissonances can be achieved. This allows you to achieve a unique and hard tone.

Additive
By layering waveforms and blending their harmonics, you can create a variety of expressions such as harmony, dissonance, and high-tension sounds. With 6 operators available, you can also go back in time to create classic sounds from the history of FM sound sources.

Classic FM
opsix’s flexible and powerful architecture begins with a true 6-operator FM. The result is an easy way to recreate the signature sounds you’ve heard on thousands of hit songs from the ’80s to today.

In this way, opsix mk II is able to achieve sounds worthy of being called a “future modern classic” synthesizer.

Evolution that goes beyond just FM
opsix mk II is FM-based, but its similarities with classical synthesis extend beyond that. Altered FM architecture offers a far wider variety of sounds than any previous synthesis, with new waveforms, filters, shaping, effects, LFOs, envelopes, modulation, and other new sound components. It has come true.

Powerful effects
opsix mk II has 3 blocks of 30 high-quality effects that can be used in combination to further improve your sound. We have everything from easy-to-use classic effects like chorus, phaser, delay, and compressor to rich reverb that will take your sound to the next level.

Automable 16-step sequencer
The opsix mk II features an incredible step sequencer with the flexibility and power of a groovebox. Press the PLAY button on any sound to experience complex sequences. Every program has one sequence stored in it, and you can also create your own sequences.

You can record up to 6 notes per step, and edit each note’s velocity, gate time, and playback timing. It is possible to perform long phrases, input with subtle timing shifts, and drum roll-like performances that are impossible with a typical 16-step sequencer. Additionally, opsix’s motion sequencer can record changes in up to six parameters, allowing you to smoothly change the sound within a phrase or create rhythms that change significantly with each step.

Monster modulation matrix
The modulation possibilities of opsix mk II are simply incredible. With 6 operator modes and 40 preset algorithms, plus the ability to create your own user algorithms, opsix creates dynamic sounds

. Get even more power with the processor. The MOD section operates separately from the operator and features 3 EGs, 3 LFOs, and 12 virtual patches with diverse routing possibilities. You can use these features to create swirling soundscapes, add rhythmic movement to your sounds, and do a huge range of other modulations.

Try throwing the dice
When you want to discover unexpected sounds, use the “Randomize” function. Pressing the button with the dice icon will completely change the synth’s parameters and produce new, unique sounds. Randomize functions can be used for all parameters or only for operators, algorithms, and sequences.

But if not, try again or use the results as a starting point for your next new sound.
