Just came across this last night. Hope it wasn't already posted...

Sounds great, doesn't it? Very close to the original. And with both filters, and effects....

Yeah, that was in ElmerJFudd's 3 Days till bomb drop thread a couple of days back.

It looks to me like a very interesting piece. I'm still waiting for pricing info, though.

And meanwhile, Korg has also released their own version of this synth.

Korg's offering has the full Tolex casing, built-in speakers, and accompanying keyboard, just like the original.. and thus will likely have a relative higher cost.

I kind of like Behringer's small rack-mountable form factor here.

The Korg's $3900. Definitely out of any price range that I can justify, even to myself, much less to anyone else.

Not really wanting a patch cable synth in 2020, nor a mono one, but I'll be darned if that thing doesn't sound killer....

Very much looking forward to a possible Obxa-ish keyboard if they actually build it. (Though, add in effects Uli! Even if it's just the spring emulation from this one! Hide the button for the purists, bury it in a menu.)

All this is true. The people that wanted them were not concerned about cost. They were sold out (all pre orders) by day 3 of NAMM last month.


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.

I played the Korg 2600 at NAMM, my first exposure to a 2600; I thought it sounded great. A couple of people there who actually owned vintage ARP 2600s of course said that it was close, but was missing something. If I had grown up with a 2600, I wouldn't have hesitated to pay for the Korg (as I did for the Minimoog Reissue). But depending how much the Berhinger costs, I could succumb...but then again you could just go Eurorack.

Do I need it? ... No. I have a modular now. My days of thinking I need a 2600 is long past.

Do I want it? ... Oh yes. I still have fantasies of playing Frankenstein on a 2600.

Will I buy it? ... Depends on price and mood at the time. Probably not. I'm trying to cut down.

I will say, Behringer is building respect. 5 years ago I would not even look at anything they put out. Now I would have no embarrassment buying and using one of their synths.

I bought a second Behringer Model D a couple of weeks ago as part of a package deal with a Synthesis Technology unit. The guy practically threw it at me, so I succumbed to temptation and gave it a good home. It's consistent in quality with the first one, which is to say, good...especially for the price (and that goes double for the price I paid for the used one...dirt cheap). And they sound damned good. If anyone wishes to pick nits about the sound, let them. I don't have a Moog unit on hand to compare them with and don't really see the point--at least for me--in splitting hairs as to whether the Behringer is faithful to the original. Their sound suits me and that's good enough to be getting on with.

If the 2600 (and the Moog modular clones and...) sounds good to me and the price is appealing, then I'll buy my Model Ds some cousins.

Uli is kicking Korg’s ass on these ARP clones. I wouldn’t mind having one of Uli’s Odyssey clones. Real size keys and everything. If I quit buying guitars I don’t need maybe six can buy some synths I don’t need. 😀😀😀

I'm lukewarm about revisiting the 2600 (used to play around on a friend's) but I if I did, it would be like this - a smaller package connected to a modern keyboard with decent pitch and mod controls. If Behringer includes their synth tool software (with key velocity and AT setups) that would be a positive in my book.

The old ARP 2600 is just too archaic for me to ever think about going back to that. But I know it has it's fans.

There are other differences besides the ones you listed - mainly in the quality of components and construction

Don't forget the Jupiter 8

But if they were going to try anything, I would love to see Behringer attempt an 8- or 16-voice polysynth in the spirit of the Alesis Andromeda- not a clone, but something amazing in its own right.
