Siel DK600

   (0 reviews)

The SIEL DK600 is six voice analog synthesizer with digitally controlled oscillators.

The DK600 is a programmable polyphonic synthesizer, featuring 6 voices with 2 DCO's each and keyboard dynamic control. Its 95 programs offer an extremely wide sonority range. The 12 Digitally Controlled Oscillators (DCO) make it possible for you to create no end of synthesized sounds with an excellent pitch stability (no special tuning required). A digital/analog converter, combined with 3 Low Frequency Oscillators (LFO), enables impressive modulations and a very rich and "fat" sound. DK 600 is a superb synthesis of both technical knowledge and musical experience. The controls layout enables simple real-time adjustment of all parameters and offers an immediate visual indication of operation in current program.

The programmable dynamic envelope generator makes it possible for you to control both the Attack Time and the A.D.S.R. destination (filter, amplifier, or both) for advanced sound possibilities. Moreover, MIDI. connection allows you to hook the DK 600 together with any MIDI. equipped synthesizer or sequencer. MIDI. standard may be adopted also for interconnection to computers.

The DK600 was released in the midst of the era of the Oberheim Matrix 12 and Roland Juno 106 which were both formidable competitors. However the Siel DK600 had dual oscillators per voice which enabled it to sound thicker than it's competitors because of its six voices having two oscillators per voice made it have 12 oscillators.
