Get them both is the answer! Guinness ftw! hyper hyper hyper we're not worthy w00t screaming goo yo screaming goo yo screaming goo yo screaming goo yo nanners Dead Banana nanners nanners zombie thumbs up seriously, i just don't get it SlayerBadger! SlayerBadger! SlayerBadger!

No seriously. What are you making? Dubstep or EDM? If you make dubstep get the rev2 because it's 100% analog, meaning it has lfo's (they don't exist in the digital domain) so you can modulate the resonance for that typical dubstep bass wiggle. Also it's osc's can do both sine as well as pyramid waves that can go as low as 5 hz for superdeep bass (peak can only go to 1200 hZ because of the digital oscs). If you're playing the edm game go for the peak, it has a built in flanger for build-ups plus you can manually close the filter for epic drops because all the knobs are right there. But seriously, get both.

angry thumbs up

I don’t think I have ever listen to dubstep...

I prefer IDM, perhaps classic rock, experimental electronic like Shpongle and Tipper...

I have a strange feeling about this.

What do you say then?

I'd probably start with a couple MATHS, and then add Disting and Ornament & Crime.

It's the 5hz pyramid waves. They can cause irregularity.

modular synthesis creates the most unmusical sound design in history. I rather play a lute 11 time out of 10.

I have never heard a good song using modular synth due to the time sink:result ratio Rockin' Banana!

I guess we can shut down this thread now - troll has come out from under the bridge.

Folks, let's not feed the troll. If you have legit answers to the first post, have at it, but try to contain yourselves otherwise.

These are my favorite threads.
Simple solution: sell everything and get a "good job"

If no one wishes to further input I am going to purchase the Peak tonight due to its utility.

The peak is an excellent synth. I chose it over a number of other options. A good portion of the "info" posted above about it is wrong. And don't base your opinion on the peak on the presets - while some of them are nice, they don't really show off the full range of the synth.

How about the Peak vs. OB6? I have found an OB6 new for below $1,900... seems like a nice deal.

I don't know - I really liked the online demos I found on youtube, but didn't really want to pay that much - it's quite a bit more.

I have both of these synths and they're totally different beasts. Both in character and functionality. Both sound excellent, but aren't really comparable except that they are both synths.
The OB-6 is really sweet sounding if not a bit basic. But the gorgeous tone more than makes up for it.
The Peak has a bunch of good programming features, including 2 xtra LFO's now since the new update. The Peak is bargain IMO.

das OB6 truly sounds like a synth made by the hand of the creator. Perhaps I should purchase OB6 and Serum virtual synthesizer...

I saw a "Satanic Messiah" on GS asking similar questions. is this an old school trawl? twisted

Anyway you could have done a little reading up as there are many discussions on this topic and it gets a bit repetitive.

Serum destroys the hardware in terms of synthesis power. The hardware is nicer to use. It all sounds good. The end.

You got me, I am SatanicMessiah, here to subtly troll while also seeking generic information that has been answered many times over w00t

Which do u prefer? I’m about to buy the OB6 otherwise I’m getting a Behringer OB beast.

I'd go for the dsi Rev 2 any day over the peak.

I simply haven’t heard a demo I’ve enjoyed of the Peak after listening to the OB6.

This coming from the guy who repeatedly rants on and on about the same Elektron stuff over and over all over the forum... meh

I own both the Peak and the OB-6.

I know this is maybe a bit boring and typical of me to say, but they really are apples and oranges.

The Peak has a vastly wide sonic palette, but requires the time to program it and set up the mod matrix. It's not dauntingly menu-divey (it's actually very fast to program), but it is not as immediate as the OB-6.

If you have the imagination, the Peak can get weird, wild, and pushed into alien territory. The OB-6 sounds lush and immediate simultaneously.

I should also note that the Peak has some really crappy presets. It's one of the only synths where I deleted all of the presets after my first week with it.

You can make the Peak sound very "vintage" with the diverge and drift parameters. I don't think this is showcased enough and it really makes the Peak sing.

The OB-6 is almost impossible to program something that doesn't sound great. The filter is really what makes it too. The filter on the Peak is more static sounding and less unique, but has more versatility.

Feel free to ask me specific questions about them.


UPDATE: I realize now this is a troll post. This is an extremely boring troll as well. At least be funny!

RIP Muffs 2019.
