He also turns out loads of trax with everything he bangs on about so there is that side which is admirable to say the least.

They are digital anyway, so never understood why they only had one!
The Bass Station 2 is a lot of fun and the multimode filters are fantastic. One of my close friends has one, so I've played with it a bit. Sounds really good! Ah, now you're making me want to buy one... ARGS! ;-)

Actually come to think of it, for $100 it's a way better buy than the Monologue, in my humble opinion.

I just think you are excited that you can get your hands on analog synth cheaply like most of the others, and not interested in facts.
Have you seen Behringers facility? Research it. The people there hardly look like they are about to end it all. Not all chinese factory workers and exploited the way say iphone workers are. Like i said do some research. As far as being excited for a cheap moog. Well sure. I can afford a real one but im just not a massive minimoog guy. Bass mostly, so if uli can create a faithful sound sure ill grab one. Why not?

It's saturday and i'm supposed to make some music right now.
Instead I find myself watching Simpsons and refreshing GS every 30 seconds to read another post in one of those behringer threads.
It literally robbed me 50% of my weekend synth time already.

Since Behringer aims to bring synths for an average wallet, here are my suggestions:

1. Prove (and I don't doubt you can) that a digital Mellotron-like keyboard doesn't need to cost 2000 euros.
2. Prove that Hammond clones also don't need to cost 2000 euros (I also have no doubt that you can)
3. Bring back vintage synths that are unique, awesome and rare, like Synton Synrix or Octave Cat (and modern Korg Odyssey will again get a competitor, haha).
4. Design an open architecture analog monosynth with a breakout modular box via DB25 connector, swapable filter circuits, optional keyboard, so it is quite customizeable, but comes ready to go in a basic configuration.

Deepmind sample
Ship it with a small hard drive to keep the buy-in low, but make it upgradable by the user.

Get a Crumar Mojo 61 for your Hammond clone. Done. I don't know what it costs in EU but it was $1200 USD on sale.

You can also get an original Korg CX3 for cheap. Sounds great. Analog. Not exactly a clone wheel but a great beefy organ.

A DX7??!! Seriously??!! We've had digital synths constantly for 35 years. Why the hell would you want more? They are plentiful and a lot of them are cheap second hand. The CEM3360 oscillator IC is back in production. Start there. MemoryMoog or an OB. Hell, maybe convince Curtis to start making more of the CEM line.

I bet Behringer can make a digital Hammond clone for sub $500.

It might be a lot harder than copying synth schematics because of the intense software modeling. Crumar Mojo runs the VB3 software plugin model

What would REALLY be cool is if he did a real combo organ in a desktop box. Just copy farfisa or vox schematics.

Some people trying to do this on the combo organ forum a few years ago. It never happened.

Yes, light years overdue now, just like multi-synths, and stringers that use organ technology, like the Quadra.

With ever more absurdity, there hasn't been a single instrument like this since 1983 - which, coincidentally, was the year of the DX7.

@Uli Behringer, if you are still reading this thread, please release a Behringer 200 series modular system:



I've long wanted a Buchla system to sit next to my Serge Modular, but I can't bring myself to give any money to the sh*tstains who are currently in charge of that company after the way that they defrauded Don Buchla, who at the time was a septuagenarian cancer patient.

It is disappointing to see people posting false and highly inflammatory statements about our workers and our company.

Look guys you can criticize me or our company - that’s all fine and I have no problem with it. But making false or defamatory statements is just not cool - especially when it is about our people.

Only recently did we have to take action against a competitor which is truly unfortunate. If needed we will take a stand and protect our people and the company.

We celebrate a culture of mutual respect and we are especially proud of our workers whom we consider most important.
These people are the hardest working and most critical as they touch our customers. In fact they are much more important than me or our management.

Our culture is the one of openness and transparency and we welcome you to visit our factory and all our global offices. We are very proud to show you around.

I currently reside in the factory in China and if you are interested, please send me a PM and we will accommodate you to meet our people and see the facilities.

Or simply have a look here:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/MyMUSICTribe

I understand that this is a competitive market and we’re all passionate.
But let’s try to engage with each other in a respectful and courteous manner. This is certainly more enjoyable.

Thanks

Uli

This is the unfortunate crap you will deal with being on a forum as I am sure you are aware due to the time you spend on them, it is disappointing especially as the more mature want and desire more owners/manufacturers like yourself to take part but it's this type of childish behaviour that will stifle it beyond belief. Most people just talk about what they have read somewhere and treat it as modern day fact - weird.

Your presence here is welcomed by most of us Uli

Hi Uli, I'm looking for your classic 'big' analog poly-synths...with modern dress. I could probably use two or three in my setup. I'm drawn to the sound of the Jupiter-8, CS-80, Rhodes/ARP Chroma, OB-Xa and Synthex. I'm not sure what you guys are cooking up but any of these would be great! **there's a DIY effort for the CS-80 that looks good so I'll probably make one of these**

I also have room for one sampler and one digital synth. For those I'm interested in E-mu samplers, DX7 or JD-800 offshoots.

I'm not sure if you guys are getting into filter-boxes but I love-love-love the Sherman Filterbank! It's on my radar but if this is an avenue you guys are pursuing then I'd be very interested!

Uli, dude, such patience!

Seriously, UB1 please! But 21st century stuff. 2 parts digital, 2 parts analog.
The digi parts could focus on e-piano, organ, strings, clav, marimba, vibes, celesta.
One 6 voice dco poly part, one 2 vco mono part. Some fx, note and motion seq, arps,
6 octave kb and rack. Lots of IO.


When i first heard about your UB1, i thought about ARP Quadra, but for a bar band.
JDXA sort of did it as well, but i just didnt gel with the visual and tactile design. Sounded decent, but the case, knobs, did not make me want to dig into it. But something Not "Crossover" synthesis. Have the parts be discrete parts, that meet at the mixer stage.
Great for a band kb player that needs it all, real analog, sampling and modeling.
Put your name on it, and then, let 'em have it!

I wrote earlier in this thread, but this video speaks for The Cat! Behringer should definitely put this synth on the top of their re-make list, including the rare expander box.

I must admit of all the modular stuff outside of euro that really interests me it's the Buchla stuff, and knowing what it costs I admit it's pure fantasy to even speculate owning any, so yeah if Behringer wanted to do their take on a music easel I'd be like..
