The Moog Sonic Six is a 2-VCO duophonic synthesizer with a built-in speaker and a 4-
octave, 49-note (C-C) keyboard. Each VCO can output sawtooth, triangle, and rectangle
(pulse/square) waveforms as well as 2 "waveform generators." A "quality" knob adjusts
the width of the rectangular waveform. White or pink noise is also available. The Sonic
Six can be set for 3 keyboard modes; high note priority, low note priority, or duophonic.
The Sonic Six can also be set to an alternate tuning across the keyboard (different
interval between octaves of the keyboard). Portamento rate is controlled by a knob. The
envelope section features a basic envelope, with variable control for attack and decay
and a switchable release (follows decay) and sustain. It had a single VCF, low-pass
voltage controlled filter. Two multimode LFOs are available. Their speed is
independently variable and can be controlled by the envelope.
