Behringer Tease 11 New Synths and Drum Machines


Hard to know if this is a genuine "mistake" or a ploy to generate a bunch of excitement ahead of launch, as the specs are listed but there are no photos (it says coming soon). But the Musictri.be website, which is essentially an online catalogue of Behringer/MusicGroup products has all of these products listed (Links to all the product pages for full specs) -

update - pages have now been removed and Behringer have issued a statement (see bottom of page)

 

Synthesizers:

Wasp Deluxe - "Legendary Analog Synthesizer with Dual OSCs, VCF, Multi-Mode VCF, 16-Voice Poly Chain and Eurorack Format"

(we assume this is going to be the same sort of format as the as yet unavailable D clone, in that you can Eurorack mount it)

2600 - "Legendary Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer with 3 VCOs and Multi-Mode VCF in a 6U Rack-Mount Format"

This one is going to get some people excited - a 6U rack format means it wont be super tiny, but compact.

CAT -"Legendary Paraphonic Analog Synthesizer with Dual VCOs, 4 Mixable Waveforms, External Signal Processor, 16-Voice Poly Chain and Eurorack Format"

Another classic and hard to find synth, again in what appears to be the same D type format.

SYNTHI VCX3 - "Legendary Analog Synthesizer with 3 VCOs, VCF, LFO, Ring Modulator and Reverb"

Ooh, the VCS-3 which presumably this is going to be emulating, is another modern classic - perhaps a bit more left-field but if they are making it with actual electronics and the same pin-board patch matrix, then it could be a cracker.

MS-101 - "Legendary Analog Synthesizer with 32 Full-Size Keys, 3340 VCO with 4 Simultaneous Waveforms, VCF, ADSR, 32-Step Sequencer, Arpeggiator and Live Performance Kit"

Okay we've seen a couple of tease of this before the SH-101 basically.

K-20 - "Legendary Analog and Semi-Modular Synthesizer with Dual VCOs, Ring Modulator, External Signal Processor, 16-Voice Poly Chain and Eurorack Format"

The MS-20 in the same format as the D we presume..

Drum Machines

All of these machines have discrete voice outputs, and on board Wave Designer - which is a transient processor to add punch

LMX - "Classic Digital Drum Machine with 24 Drum Sounds, Real-time Sequencer with Step Editor, Wave Designer and Dual-Mode Filter"

A Linn Drum we assume, but with a filter and 16 analog outputs.

OMX - "Classic Digital Drum Machine with 25 Drum Sounds, Real-time Sequencer with Step Editor, Wave Designer and Dual-Mode Filter"

DMX drum machine.

RD-99 - "Pure Analog Drum Machine Designed with Performance and Sound Editing at Its Heart"

Perhaps a KPR-99 (old Korg drum machine)?

RD-808 - "Legendary Analog Drum Machine with 16 Authentic Drum Sounds and 64-Step Sequencer"

An 808 of course!

RD-909 - "Classic Analogue Drum Machine with 10 Drum Voices, 64 Step Sequencer, Wave Designer and Dual-Mode Filter"

A 909 then, which of course isnt a completely analogue machine..

So, a pretty bold demonstration of intent there, we have no information on pricing, nor as we say, any photos as yet. But no doubt, this will all come in due time.

 

Behringer's statement (via Facebook)

It was brought to our attention that early this morning a rather unfortunate error occurred on the Behringer product page. This error mistakenly posted information for a number of different product design concepts from our product management repository which is contained and part of an automated backend system for our websites. The cause of the error was due to a website glitch and was completely unintentional. The moment we realized the error, we removed the content.

As we are owning the mistake, we also feel it's necessary to inform the public about this error as a sign of good faith. It was not our intention to mislead customers in any way nor use this as a marketing tool. To be perfectly transparent, the leaked information does not imply any availability at this time or even definitive evidence that we intend to officially develop or deliver these products in the future. At this stage, the leaked products are merely concepts and nothing more.

To be honest we are embarrassed by this glitch and sincerely apologize to you who have been so supportive of our efforts over the years. We greatly appreciate your support and understanding of the situation.
