I want an analog drum machine cheaper than the drum brute but better than the rhythm wolf or pocket operators and Volcas. I would love to have an acidlab Miami or Detroit, MFB Tanzibar or Tanzmaus, Elektron Analog RYTM, or the Jomox drum modules, but are just on the edge of out of my price range when used. I imagine those would still sound better/more original/more authentic than a Behringer offering, but after the disappointing Rhythm Wolf, I wouldn't mind Akai getting it stuck straight to them on how to make a decent drum synth that doesn't require multiple outboard FX to sound acceptable...

Don't kow if needed parts are still available, but for reissues:

- 8-voice jupiter 4 with second osc, sync, xmod etc, second filter, 3 or more LFOs and envelopes (loopable), a good sequencer, analog BBD effects, a huge mod matrix, BIG screen with 6 or more programmable knobs.

- Arp 2600. Not sure it needs much extras.

- MPC 4000 with modern filing system, bigger screen, more soft knobs, fx per part.

- A super tactile Fizmo with morphing filters, samples and realtime timestretching.

+1000 for the andromeda killer. Something new in a big package with lots of unusual features and its own personality would be nice.

I thought that was the whole point with the DM12. To not have to choose either raw good sound OR modern features. We've had the option to choose between those for a long time. Why cling to that limit?

i think behringer should make a Synthi-A next, one that costs £600, not 6K and you don't have to be on a 100 year waiting list for it.

I'd absolutely love for a company to make something like the synthi AKS but for the modern age, still use pins for mod slots/or the matrix brute pad style and still have some really wacky stuff happening, use an old design but make it bat**** mental for this century!

In a case, self powered, small market I expect but who knows...... Quirky gear is fun, always was and always will be.

An additive synth with 64 motorized faders could be rather amazing.

After the Moog style synth I would really like to see the drum machine be the next thing they drop, there will be a huge influx of interest from everyone once this comes out, it will be a totally different vibe once people get wind of what it is, once the deepmind and drum machine are out and in producers hands people are going to realise Behringer aren't messing around. After that it's all cream..

Search of moogaudio.com in Canada for the word "deep"
Nothing to be found.

As GS is a place for unfounded speculation, maybe they are not planning to release the DM12 in Canada?

But seriously,
I think they should just take a hot minute, and concentrate on the Line, Identity, Scope of making a cohesive line. For exp. Aira has sold well, Helped by that Fecking Green

Also, this separates them from the "re-issue" issue. Ha!

There's some good ideas in here!

If Uli is reading the posts, here's what I've been waiting a long time for.

Analog synth with 3 VCO's with waveshaping on each oscillator, xmod, sync, etc. 8-12 voices. 3-4 LFO's with a modulation matrix / lots of modulation possibilities. All LFO's go into audio rates. 3-4 envelope generators that are assignable.

Here's the big selling point for me: A multi-mode filter, or lots of filter options like a Matrix 12. For the love of God, please put in a multi-mode filter!! I'll give you my cash immediately.

Full size keys would be lovely. You can add effects or leave them out, I don't care. I don't need a fancy digital interface, etc. Just knobs and keys! A price tag somewhere around 2k.

The DSI products come somewhat close but they don't have multi-mode filters outside of the ob6, which has one LFO and is pretty expensive. They could have slapped some more LFO's in that thing. I'm also on the fence about how it sounds for the money. The DSI Rev 2 looks great, but no multimode filter which seems like a glaring oversight. The Prophet 6 is nice, but the HPF response to external modulation is totally wrong. The HPF also doesn't sound great.The p6 is nice but again seems over priced for what you get.

If anyone thinks I should get an A6: I did own an Andromeda at one point but had so many problems with them, that I returned it. I went through 3 of them, all had bad voices. ( Long story )

So I guess we're looking at a modern Jupiter 6 or a Matrix 12 type synth.

Did I mention multi-mode filters?! ;-)

I mentioned this in one of the many Behringer threads. The ultimate, nothing has ever come close.

Just so it goes down on the record a keyboard sampler in the same mold as the Deepmind would be incredible, there are so few keyboard samplers ever released and none of late really..nice 3 or 4 octave keyboard with a large sampling time, you need to at least be able to sample 16bit 44.1khz for 1 minute minimum..memory is cheap enough now surely where we can have this, install a nice 500gig HD to keep all your samples on and make sure it has nice vca's and filters, it doesn't even need effects, just make sure the sampling time is good, minute min, and good sounding filters and vca, easy menu matrix like the deepmind, in fact you could almost just copy it into the sampler it's so good it needs nothing extra...perhaps instead of any effects implement a sequencer.

Absolutely. I also wouldn't mind a sample pad that made the Roland SPD-SX look like yesterdays trash. Behringer could definitely do it, their leccy drum kits smash a lot of the competition already.

Agree about the multi-mode filters (even my BassStation 2 has 3x filter modes plus a 'classic' 303-style filter circuit!) and I would have sold my silver to get a DSI OB if it had 12 voices (6 is really stingy) and polyphonic, multiple LFOs for the same price. They are digital anyway, so never understood why they only had one!

Not necessarily a copy, but taking the same great design principles from the original Jupiter 8 and making it feel lovely to use. The sliders should glide, the pots should have a nice resistance, the metal toggle switches should click into place, and the plastic switches should feel like they will last 30 years.

And that lovely colour scheme.

OK, time for my meds..

Deepmind 6, half of the voices, same layout. Just add basic effects (reverb, chorus, phaser, echo). Keep the same case and keyboard, saves creating a new production line.

The MindDrum or maybe DM-1 sound like some catchy names for new or vintage drum machines with just enough historical reference to have some search engine overlap so the young people (about my age or younger, 25) can learn the facts.
