Behringer employs Sequential’s Prophet synthesizer design

By News No Comments

Behringer has teased a new synth that is similar to Sequential’s Prophet series. The Pro-16 from Behringer was shown on Facebook last week and is presently in prototype form. Although no product specifications have been disclosing, the name “Pro-16” implies that it may contain 16 voices.

Dave Smith created the Prophet-5 in 1978, and his firms, such as Sequential Circuits and Dave Smith Instruments (DSI), have carried on the design ethos of the revolutionary synth to the present day. Last year, Smith’s current incarnation (branded as Sequential since 2018) produced an official reissue of the Prophet-5.

Behringer sued DSI, DSI engineer Tony Karavidas, and 20 anonymous forum members in 2018 for criticizing Behringer’s goods. In recent years, Behringer has made a significant shift toward selling low-cost remakes of iconic synthesizers from across history. In July, the firm unveiled its version of Moog’s System modular rigs.

Behringer presents a new modified version of their TD-3

By News No Comments

With a wicked adjusted version of their TD-3 bassline synth, Behringer takes it to a whole new level.

Behringer’s latest activities have a surreal quality to them. It first unveiled a ‘new’ MKII version of their RD-8 drum machine, which is, obviously, a clone of Roland’s TR-808, and now the TD-3-MO, a modded-out version of the company’s TD-3 bassline synth.

This model has an even stranger background; it’s a second-generation TD-3 (a reboot of Roland’s TB-303 bassline synth) that looks to be based on Robin Whittle’s tricked-out Devil Fish 303. As a result, you might call it an updated replica that was also influenced by a prior mod project.

For more information on the new features, watch the video above or visit the Behringer website. The TD-3-MO will be available for $199 in silver and yellow. It is believed to be in the process of being sent.

Behringer’s UB-Xa Oberheim synth is nearly done

By News No Comments

Behringer’s UB-Xa, a redesign of the Oberheim OX-Xa, was “almost ready”.  Behringer has subsequently declared that the design is finished and that beta testing for the synth has ended, indicating that progress has been achieved.

The UB-Xa has been in development for three years and was designed to be a direct replica of the OB-Xa at first but changed in the process. As a result, it has evolved into “a monstrous synthesizer with several capabilities and sound choices,” according to Behringer.

Behringer shows us their new synthesizer in the video below, so you can get a sense of what to anticipate.
