I think they could fit 3 oscillators in this; how about you? (Never hurts to show it again )

There will be waaay more Behringer related threads in the future and I'm looking forward to what else they will deliver to us, yet.

I'd imagine Nord could not keep up with the economic scale of using/building theses; you can.
Berhinger uses LED encoders as well as OLED displays in their mixers (X32) and midi controllers (BCR2000). Would make sense for a synth with memory. Not so much for wysiwyg synths like Minimoog, 2600 etc.

I thought I would not like the OB6 without an oled, I was wrong. But patch memory on a 2600? I hope it has both

Couple of things is good to fix like second adsr instead of ad, additional modules or seq instead speakers, dm12 fx instead of just spring reverb, lfo delay and may be secod lfo (not sure), eurorack sockets.
One of the issues of 2600 or may be it's an advantage of a kind is modules placing paradigm is different than expected by modern standards.

I'd love to see affordable EMS clones like an updated Putney or VSC3 and Buchla clones that don't cost an arm & a leg. Would also love to see a new Moog memorymoog and a Rev2 Prophet 5. I'm very excited about the Ob-Xa & Arp2600 announcements. Really hoping Behringer pulls it off in terms of sound quality.

I came so close to buying an Andromeda about a week ago... its the potential hardware failure that kept me from getting it. I had one a little over 10 years ago. It is the best sounding synth I have ever owned, although with all of those knobs it still was not the easiest to program. The specifications of it were amazing at the time it came out, especially considering price, and still seem pretty amazing today.

Andy does sound good, never liked the UI. The control arrangement is not my fav, nor the color contrast. Sounds $1,000,000, though not like Jp8

I completely agree with this!

a perfect 1:1 clone of the Hammond Novachord would be pretty awesome.

That is probably impossible to make cheap, as it's insane amount of tubes.

So are these 4 teams working on 20 synth designs now or the OSCar, 2600, OB-xa modern clones and drum machine first I wonder?
I assume the list of 20 is not complete - well the legacy synths at least.
I wonder what the demand for a modern Behringer analogue would be compared to a Behringer legacy synth?

Behringer monosynth would have to be really cheap and still have good features to get ppl buy it. OSCar is easier to sell.

One team probably works on Eurorack modules. Market is still hot and newbies would buy $50 modules like hotcakes.

for me its what it does and sounds like, not what it purports to be.

an OBXA replica would not interest me more than a modern day Behringer monster for example if the modern day synth was better for me and my thing, I am not saying I wouldn't want such a legacy synth but I don't hamper for such stuff.

same applies for any manufacturer

An OBXA clone+ and a 2600 clone+ are very appealing. I'd likely buy both.

I really does not matter what we think they should make. They are gonna make a bunch of clones of the classics. Behringer has gone off the chain.

I think we are going to be pleasantly surprised. I for one, can't wait to see what they are going to release:

As a sound designer/composer/producer with over 35 years of working with many hardware and software synths over the years, I am really interested in a OBXa remake. I will say though that I work in a limited sized studio and no longer have need or space for another keyboard. So I'd love to see a desktop version of the OBXa similar to the many requests of the DM12 being made as a desktop. It would also be cool to add an FX engine as well while you are at it.

I (like many in the industry) would also be very interested in a remake of the Arp 2600.

I'm sure we will all have some surprises awaiting for us in the future.

What source is this from? All I have ever heard is that Korg said they were not going to remake the 2600.

Thanks for any info...

I am curious how many people think that writing a piece of music that uses a melodic fragment, similar to one used in another song, even if they are in different keys, tempi, and supported by different changes, is ‘stealing’ despite the ‘original’ being owned by a multi-national gang of thieves (lawyers), yet a company that shamelessly copies a complex circuit design and has it manufactured in sweat shops is great?

Musicians have been successfully prosecuted for similar melodic fragments even when it was established that there was no prior knowledge or intent. Apparently a company called Bright Tunes owns Sol Fa Re. So we can’t write a tune using Sol Fa Re but we can take apart a complex synth and copy every detail verbatim, then construct an exact replica with our name on it and sell it to the cheers of musicians everywhere?

Before answering one might try looking up, ‘cognitive dissonance’ - ‘confirmation bias’ and of course ‘moral relativism’ - What we have is a sort of Stockholm syndrome with empathy for corporations that is based on a woeful lack of understanding of the history and construction of music. Buy your copy synth - just be careful which notes you play in what order - someone may have done it first...

Considered that but was conflicted with the word tease.

I do agree we should brace for disappointment though unfortunately.

The majority of posters here kvetching wouldn't be doing so if this was positioned as a more transformative inspiration, and it's not at all cognitive dissonance to be more flexible towards (consciously or not) lifting melodic elements versus the wholesale coopting of a brand.

I'm pretty sure there is nothing even remotely sweat shop like about Behringer's factory.. if so then all Chinese people are sweat shop workers..?

they are not allowed to work and feed their families really..? should they not work and starve to death..?
