So Behringer is getting ready to mass produce the clone of the SH-101 the MS-101. With a few added features like a sequencer. ROLAND launched a Boutique version, last year?

I'm interested in everyone's thoughts on Behringer cloning Classic Synths?

That's cool and all, but without patch memory, it's no go for me personally. I'm more inclined to pick up wit Roland boutique version. I actually have three of them (JP-08, JU-06, and D-05) and I love them.

I'm more interested in Behringer's Oberheim and String Synth knock offs.

From a blog I read from Behringer, an Oberheim clone is on the back burner. They are concentrating on synths that are selling now to pay the bills.

I heard and saw a A/B of the Moog Model D and the Behringer Model D. Not bad. I didn't hear any sample and hold filter sounds, but the basic musical sounds were very good. Cheap too. $300.00

Can't someone clone an SK-1?

The only non-programmable classic mono clone I'm interested in they've already done: The Model D. So knock yourself out Uli, but I'll pass until you roll out your take on the OBXa.

I understand B wanting to make synths at rock bottom prices, but no patch memory? Id never buy something without it. How much, conceivably, would that add to the cost?

If these are all-analog devices, then quite a bit! To have patch memory, you essentially have a layer in between the panel and the analog circuit that reads position, converts to digital, stores it in memory, and then passes through DAC's to generate the CV, not to mention monitoring knob position for movements to switch from the preset value to the current value. Then of course, unlike the original designs these are made to replicate, you can potentially need to make circuit design changes to work based on CV changes instead of resistance changes, you get stair-stepping from the digitization of the control signal, etc.

I have seen the beginnings of what is going to be called the UB-XA.
