Behringer Eurorack Modular Modular Synthesizers

Sure.
The essence of modular is cv and gate, not midi. And exploration followed by commitment, not certainty and repeatability.
But you do what you want I guess.
This often comes up I have to admit, but to me it's like saying I want a Ferrari, but it must do 43 miles to the gallon, be in a low insurance band and fit my family of four.

A pitch-to-cv/gate module would be great!

A modern poly synth is not able to do everything a modular system can do so that is not an option. And software virtual systems is not as cool as the real thing

I like to play with real sliders and knobs. You do not have to agree but thanks for your answer.
It sounds like you want the Matrixbrute.

an analogue frequency shifter would be a nice module to reinvent at a reasonable cost if you are looking for ideas

Many of you have now requested for us to build individual Eurorack modules, powered Eurorack cases and especially bring back some of the legacy modular systems.

At the same time we also thought about inviting all designers and engineers among you to participate in this initiative.

The goal would be to build a wide range of modules and - as usual - at very affordable prices (target prices US$ 49-99) which would allow us to open this market and get as many people as possible into synths and making music.

Our synth teams are very excited about this potential direction and would love to hear your opinion.

Are you interested in Eurorack systems?
What modules would you like us to make?
What legacy modular systems would you like us to make?
What accessories do you require?

Thank you :-)

Uli

We want to collaborate with you


In short, we are willing to share our complete manufacturing, supply chain and marketing power with you, while you can focus on designing great modules. Of course we are more than happy to sign an NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) so you are protected.

What do you think?

Hi @Uli Behringer ,

Wow, this provides quite an opportunity. I'll throw my hat in the ring and offer an effect concept that can be implemented as a synth module or effect pedal.

It is a simple stepped panning and spatial tool... nothing special because coming up with a new effect is very challenging. This effect is based on something I thought of in the 90's.

The neat thing is that there is no rate knob to sweep the sound left to right to left, etc. The pan step is triggered by each note or beat or sound. There is no sweeping. The sound just occurs at a new location for each step. Spatial in-phase to out-of-phase stepping will make a pulsing accent like effect to a mono centered sound (sort of like turning an Edison off and on for each beat/note). Cool for a snare drum. Left-Middle-Right-Middle pattern syncopates 16th note high hats in a psycho acoustic way as the location reoccurs in 5 beats rather than 8, 4 or 2.

I just wrote it up and put into a pdf presentation for your convenience. Enjoy and run with it if you like.

What I'd really like to see you do is to port the oscillator bank from the Behringer Model D to eurorack. There is no such module existing now.

Closest is the MFB Osc-02/03, but they are not Moog based, they are out of production and while I love my Osc-02, it is a tuning nightmare. Takes forever to warm up too.

So, a 3 oscillator module with waveform selection instead of separate outs (Maybe both though?) and octave controls per oscillator. This would be the perfect beast for live if you ask me.

Actually, if they could make it closer to the MFB, I'm on board. Let's have CV PWM per oscillator, per oscillator CV control, individual outputs (the cascaded mixer output thingy on the MFB is handy) sync controls on a switch, and normalled FM destinations. From any other manufacturer, that's a $300 module that I'd pay for, so that should be easy for Behringer to beat. The Model D oscillators are SOO meaty!

If the Eurorack project hasn't been abandoned it would be great if you guys got some multimode filters in there.
Clone that SH-5 filter you guys have. Perhaps the 3320 you guys cloned in a multimode setup. The Crumar Spirit filter (a multimode filter designed by Bob Moog).

For filters, I loved the SSM in the Siel DK600 best of all. Very organic.

Here is that SSM filter on Youtube. A bit of quantized digital stepping for a synth of that era but the resonance is very musical and organic. It is not harsh or whistle-like.

The Korg PS series filter seems to sound similar.

that is the same as in the EMU emulator & SP12/00 (and in octave plateau) and in doepfer A-105
punchy & warm, to say the least (even with filter freq totally open)
i pair it with a rossum electro assimil8tor to get same specs as in EMU SP-1200/drumulator

Yes it looks like an SSM2044 4-Pole VCF was used.

I am interested in multimode filters as well. The one I would like would be a dual Moog modular HPF/ 48 dB LPF with filter couplers. With the couplers they can be switched to bandpass and band reject as well. The dual filter of that configuration would require 6 expensive modules of what‘s already available. Put them in one module.

I guess my question is already answered.

Although for something like the System-100 it would be nice to see more than just an unpowered skiff.

These presumably extruded aluminum boats are great. Moog and Behringer use them. I suspect the manufacturer makes them in long lengths that can be cut into most any width in HP.

I wouid love to have about 20-40 feet of it in raw form, uncoated and undrilled, like buying raw rails from the eurorack vendors.

That case looks rather shallow. Not so great especially for DIY with deep circuit boards...

Well they market it as a skiff case, so it only makes sense

Oh, you're right. I didn't know that skiffs were typically shallow by definition. I use frac stuff which has plenty of space in the back. It's nice for when you have a really deep module. Still, if I decide to do some Euro stuff this B skiff might be cool. How do you supply power through such a shallow format?

I have learned this week that the TipTop uZeus is an inexpensive and reliable Power Supply option, and it is definitely sized to fit in cases like this.

The specs say those cases accommodate 1.5" of module depth.

Yeah the uZeus would be great for that, or maybe the power solution from Koma: Modular Power Solutions – KOMA Elektronik
