N00b Advice for Ultimate Behringer Eurorack

Post by blw » Wed Jan 15, 2020 1:44 pm

I am new to Eurorack and am hoping to get some expert advice about the system I designed. i would like to keep my system modest, so I am going with 4 rows of 84hp. I have noticed many, many Behringer threads on Muffwiggler and have concluded they must be the best brand. I have selected a Behringer Neutron on the top row for my primary voice, a Behringer Pro-1's on the second row for percussive effects, a Behringer Cat on the third row because Cats appear to be very popular here, and a Behringer Model D which I put on the bottom because bass frequencies are the lowest. I do not have any musical goals.

I have the following questions:

1) Are there any other modules made by Behringer that I should consider?
2) I am perplexed by the gaps in my rows. Are there any blank panels made by Behringer?
3) Will my purchases come with any Behringer stickers?
4) How do I use my Behringer modules?

Thanks for your help.

Get ready to get a bunch of flack about your post. Many do not consider large semi-modular stand alone synthesizers that happen to fit in a Eurorack cabinet, to be "Eurorack", and some don't even consider them to be "modular". And just because there are a lot of threads about a certain brand, that by no means says they are the best. Read those threads.

I would add another row, you are missing the Wasp. Plus Crave outside the case, as you may need a sequencer... who knows.. :mrgreen:

As a Behringer Connoiseur of many many years, I can tell you, they are indeed the best, great job spotting that. In fact, they are pretty much the only brand when it comes to Music, that really creates more than esoteric toys for lifetime students of philosophy.

For your questions:

1) Yes, the X32. It's really cheap and a very useful module, albeit rather big (clocks in at around a 400 HP, I am afraid).
2) No, sorry, no blank panels, but you can easily use some Mutable Instruments modules, just don't connect them to the power bus and you are good! They look great.
3) You never really know, it depends on the chinese manufacturer, so better just print your own Behringer sticks and glue them on. That's what I usually do (even for other gear of less esteemed brands :twisted: )
4) This one is easy, all you have to do is buy as much as possible, and you are cool! The joy of Modular! Of course you can still take pictures for example (that's why it's called MODEL D)...

Enjoy!

Those are all good answers, except for number 2). The only proper way to do blanks in an all Behringer system is to use Cwejman modules but don’t plug them in. An acceptable substitute would be gold or platinum ingots, if you happen to have some extra laying around. This is Behringer we’re talking about- no cutting corners or cheaping out!!

You have that sorted - only four modules! Good that you took the "take it slow" advice that is popular on MW.

IDM then?

To be serious I would be concerned about hum and earth-loops, you don't have any - they are both quite popular here judging from the number of threads. Apparently you might need a Binton power system? :despair:

Welcome to Muff Wiggler - you will fit in perfectly!
