Opera 6 Version 3

   (0 reviews)

Version 3 of the Opera 6 from Siel features 6 voices with 12 Voltage Controlled Oscillators and is very similar in look and style as the original and Version 2. This time still with blue casing, and pitch and mod wheels, but without the two buttons between them found on Version 2. The newest and biggest change was the unit now featured 12 Digitally Controlled Oscillators. The instrument still offered 6 voices. Version 2 of the Opera 6 from Siel featured 6 voices with 12 Voltage Controlled Oscillators and is very similar in look and style as the original with a new blue casing, pitch and mod wheels, and repositioned buttons allowing more space for the user to perform functions. The synthesizer's architecture is still a 6 voice unit with 12 voltage controlled featuring square and saw waveforms with pulse width modulation. The Opera 6 has MIDI note on/off with velocity and program change only. Backups could be performed over MIDI as well and also tape backup is available. A pitch wheel was added alongside the original's mod single wheel.
