As everybody knows, the three musketeers were actually four... so, after presenting the analog synths unveiled at Winter NAMM 2016 by Korg, Roland and Arturia, here you are the DSI OB-6 polyphonic synth by Dave Smith and Tom Oberheim.


Should somebody ask for the most famous poly analog synth engineers of the good old times, the answer would probably include both Dave Smith and Tom Oberheim.
