Features

◾Paraphonic synthesizer with authentic dual 3340 analog oscillators for insanely fat music creation
◾Pure analog signal path based on legendary VCO design to recreate classic sound performance
◾Semi-modular architecture with default routings requires no patching for immediate performance
◾Oscillator waveform control blends seamlessly between 5 shapes (tone mod, saw tooth, pulse, triangle, sine wave)
◾Individual pulse width / tone mod control provides ultimate sounds
◾Paraphonic mode allows both oscillators to be independently controlled
◾Flexible LFO with fi ve waveform shapes, MIDI clock sync, key sync and delay / fade in
◾Two analogue ADSR generators for modulation of VCF and VCA
◾Multiple stage analog delay based on legendary BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) technology
◾Overdrive circuit adds rich analog warmth and edge to your sounds
◾Noise generator dramatically expands waveform generation
◾36 controls and 7 buttons give you direct and real time access to all parameters
◾Switchable, self-oscillating, multi-mode analog 12 dB/Oct VCF with dual output (e.g. LP+HP available on jacks) Utility functions including attenuators, multiples, slew rate limiter and summers for creative patching flexibility
◾32 in / 24 out jack matrix for an incredible amount of patching options
◾Patchable audio-rate sample and hold with glide for added creativity
◾Headphone output with dedicated level control
◾External audio input for processing external sound sources
◾Comprehensive USB/Midi implementation for connection to keyboard/sequencer
◾Designed and engineered in the U.K.

Price

The official price has not yet been confirmed by Behringer, but Guitar Center and Musician’s Friend have announced a price of $299 USD. The would be the same price as the Mode D. If the price is true, which we can’t say yet, Behringer would make the world of “semi”-modular Synthesizers very affordable for many musicians.

Nice price, nicely cloned 3340 ..... sounds, at least on Youtube, pretty good.

But honestly I believe Behringer is onto something here. If they keep quality up.

My move away from VST plugin sound sources to hardware devices over the last 3 years costs a lot of money. Even obtaining second hand equipment can still be rather expensive for a (not for profit ;-) musician. If I would have stuck with a VST only setup, it would be a factor 2 to 3 cheaper and sound wise not really matter that much (debatable of course) .....

What Behringer is doing is leveling the playing field between plugin and hardware based sound sources. Price level of 300 dollars/Euros for a hardware device is starting to compete with VST pricing (taking controller/computer aspects into account as well of course).

Interesting times  8) ;)
DSI Prophet Rev2 and Evolver desktop, Waldorf Blofeld, Roland System-1, Korg Microstation, Nord Rack 2, Akai S5000, Dato DUO, Elektron Digitone, Deepmind12D, Bitwig v1 and v2. Almost daw-less...

Consider the costs involved with maintaining a legacy PC or Mac to run obsoleted plugins (or ones that you have not paid to upgrade)...
Sequential / DSI / Pioneer stuff: OB-6 Desktop, Prophet 12 Desktop, Mono Evolver Keyboard, Pro 2, TORAIZ AS-1, Prophet-600 Gligli, Prophet 2000

Very very true. Still running Windows XP in Ubuntu based Virtualbox to manage the Akai S5000 (ak.sys) - actually that is a lot of fun  :)

Behringer is lowering the entry point for getting into proper hardware synth based music production. Which, as far as I can see, is only a good thing.
