Behringer is probably nailing down the hardware component count prior to actual development. Their approach isn't an NGT session, but it is surfacing feedback.

Their response time is impressive.

She is pretty!
Still eagerly awaiting the 808 and Odyssey clones. Then there's the OB. Oh, they also dropped prices on Neutron and Model D. Damn...so much!

And supposedly they were looking into cloning the Jupiter 8. Does the potential of Behringer bringing any of these to production make you hesitate buying anything now?

Unlike other images of updated CS-80s posted online, this one will eventually get built - which sets it apart. Of course it's hype - but fascinating hype. I'm all in.

Me for sure. I was discussing this with another forum member while enjoying a few pints this past Saturday evening.


A reason why I collect old keyboards is that I feel partly responsible for doing it, responsible for preserving history and being a custodian for these things
Plus, old gear has a story. I like that.

It will eventually get built?

Have they built an OBXa clone yet? Weren't they "eventually" going to build it two years ago?

By all means, expend your time & energy getting hyped up over vaporware and rendered images.

I suppose the morality of it all just comes down to "will a certain price range become possible". In a way people then deserve to get phony equipment that isn't satisfactory in the long run when for instance it must fit certain studio processing norms.

When the dust settles on this one, if it ever does, one of two things will happen:

1) It will be an astounding remake, which people will embrace with unanticipated glee or

2) it will be closer to 3 dead whales rotting on a beach and people will scream and pull at their hair in the aftermath. No middle ground seems possible.

I lean towards #2, but full disclosure, I am a GAS-sy old proghead who plays that 9-note theme from "Olias of Sunhillow" in music stores to see if anyone notices. grin

Even if #1 is true, there will always be someone to complain that it's under 200 lbs.

Wow... I haven't listened to that album in ages. Have it on vinyl somewhere.

If Behringer goes to the trouble of actually recreating the CS-80 oscillators, this could be a real winner. That, and a PolyAT keyboard is an absolute MUST, and Iím not saying that just because Iím a PolyAT fanatic.

In the meantime, I really want to see Behringer clone a Jupiter 8...

Not to mention a nice bottle of Shiraz, compliments of our Australian connection twothumbs wave.

Btw I wouldn't take too seriously the opinion of some guy constantly opening up synths, feeling around and then licking his fingers for some reason. puff roll
