We chatted with Dreek on how he uses Sequential instruments in his music:
What made you choose the OB-6?
I first became familiar with the Oberheim, because I’m a huge Prince fan. I often look to broaden my sound and try different things, so I started looking into the new poly-synths when I discovered the OB-6. Wow! I thought. What a great sound. I have a few synthesizers, but felt that my sound was lacking that unmistakable Oberheim sound. When I saw that Dave Smith and Tom Oberheim partnered together on the OB-6, it was a no brainer for me to purchase.
How are you using it?
I’m really carving out my sound with it and it has really become my go to in the studio. What I love the most are the presets and the ability to alter them to my liking.
What is one of your favorite things about it?
One of my favorite things about OB-6 is that it’s a great sounding analog board to add to my productions, in addition to saving the sounds and having the ability to create my own banks.
What does it give you that other synths might not?
For me with the OB-6, it’s the tone. It has that warm and raw grit from the 12 db-filter and VCOs that makes it unique.
Any interesting tricks or techniques you would like to share?
I use the hidden distortion to add more bite and warmth. In Effects, if you hold down the effect switch, you can adjust the amount of distortion.
