"this is a Novation Bass station rack thru EH Bi-filter, backed up by MoPho Direful preset,then around 2 minutes a Oberheim Matrix 1000 comes in ....drums by SoncCharge microtinic. this starts off great but around 3 minutes with just the M1k and the drums it thins out a bit too much for my tast, it then ends on the mopho fading out"

"My new house song titled "purple haze" using the Roland Juno-106 and the CasioCZ3000 synthesizers. This is a live-mix, no overdubbing.
Enjoy.
(c) Ben Anderson 2008"
Note one of the sampled drums is the Sakata DPM-48. Anyone know what that is?
Found it in the archives: link. Note they appear to have manufactured the Oberheim Matrix-6 and Xpander in Japan.

Some Notes on the Cheetah MS6

Just some interesting notes from the AH list:

via Giles Ward:
"I've got an MS6 and a Matrix 1000 and they are pretty similar. I've got the Maad OS in there, that works really well (http://www.maad.net/ms6/index.html)

There are a few subtle differences between the MS6 and the Oberheim.

- No filter FM on the MS6
- The MS6 has its LFOs shared between multiple voices instead of 1 per voice
- MS6 envelopes are linear slope
- No matrix modulation on the MS6
- Less modulation on the MS6 seems to make it a wee bit snappier
- MS6 is multitimbral
- MS6 can be front panel edited but it's slow, best to use the CCs the Maad OS provides
- MS6 looks even more like a rack-mount clock-radio

Some great mp3 demos of the MS6 here:

I'd say it's great for strings and pads. Makes a change from low-end Roland synths which rely on the chorus. Could be considered as a bargain Prophet 08 (same chips but less voices, knobs and modulation)."

via Chris Strellis:
"Whilst we are on the subject, the Oberheim Matrix 1000 and MS6 both use the Curtis CEM3396 uP Controllable Dual Waveform Converter / Processor

..and so does the Elka EM22 and EK22:

I have an EM22 and it's an OK analog with a few surprises in its sonic
arsenal - again an underrated synth.

Here's some demos of my one with reverb and echo added.
