No VCS, 101, 2600 clones etc, but a new Semi-Modular Synthesizer.

yes it's semi, it has a 7x8 jack patch matrix on the end of the module (but it's not seen in the video)

but there is a photo of it (during assembley phase)

I remember that photo! Somebody here was 100% convinced it was for their MS-20 clone. :lol:

Neutron makes a lot more sense.

so behringer is not a joke anymore?

since i know this brand their producs could be ignored easily because yeah ... but lately i am not so sure about that anymore, what do you think?

the same seems to go for their fx-boxes since they've bought tc-electronic .... so do i have to check their products out now all of a sudden? ;o)

i can't praise the deepmind 12 enough at the price point you can pick it up for. almost inexcusable not to have one haha

That was me. :doh:

Like I said before, it was the patch points that deceived me.

Still, if the suspected price point holds (supposedly $250-$300), it'll be an impressive synth for the price.

I'm just hoping for some more info.

Nice. On-board delay seems to be analog BBD (CoolAudio V3205 chips). Also, I see two Attenuator pots - very nice to have those included on a semi-modular with patch points.

300$? Must be more, surely?
My second ever track using Mutable Instruments Rings. Here paired with Make Noise 0-coast and Arturia DrumBrute and Korg Minilogue. A rather bittersweet piece. ❤️

If it really falls into the $300 range, it's far more interesting to me than the Model D...

This is a mock-up of the front panel taken from the teaser video. Will there be programmable presets?

In a semi-modular synth? Unlikely, right?

Uh, $300. Ok I'll try one just for shits and giggles. If it sucks I'll hang it on the wall.

Finally, someone realize some of us want sine waves, and on both VCO's.

The original 3340 don't have sinewaves as waveform, do they?
Anyway, individual vcos out on the patchbay with sine waves, nice fm possibilities, methink...
A small semi modular with bbd delay and those tonal possibilities for cheap, could be from Behringer or LIDL, i am all over it already anyway....
