The old Juno Chorus II setting always seemed too wobbly for me.

Yeah my preferred setting is Ch.1, but the old Juno chorus is all about stereo outputs and does sound a bit wonky in mono. It also had the headroom allowed by 15V rails, whereas this is a 9V pedal, and I don't know which BBDs they're using or how they've worked the gain through. The original doesn't use companders, whereas most BBD pedal choruses do. Might not make a day/night difference, but it all adds up. I'd have to A/B the original with the TC really.

The price is right (around £60 I think) but, based on what I have heard so far, I wouldn't even waste that much. Hope it gets some official SOS scrutiny...

Me too. Personally, I'm waiting for the Boss DC-2w to hit the shelves. I've got the CE-2w and DM-2w and they're both excellent, no trouble at all with synth levels despite the quoted specs. The TC is looking like it won't be around till later this year...

I see that the odd, 101 and vp are now almost shipping. I’m guessing reviews should start appearing shortly. I foresee a lot of happy campers this summer

If Behringer released copies of the VCS3/2600 would I buy them? of course I would, like a lot of synth enthusiasts, and Behringer know that, they are on to a good thing.
A friend bought over his Behringer D yesterday, we compared it to my Mini Moog Reissue, it was frighteningly good, and as near as damn it like my Moog, if these other copies are as good as this they'll sell like hot cakes, and you can ad me to the pre-order list.

Wouldn't surprise me if that came true in a couple of years. Seems that if they can get hold of it, they can build it.

Possibly!
CS-80 & JP8 are probably most wished for recreations - if I were behringer I'd clone these two last! - My guess 5 year time.

The bit at the end about legal action is a good reminder that Behringer is not a philanthropic organisation.

One wonders if there have ever been any licensing discussions around any of these stories. It's something that never seems to be mentioned.

I read an interesting discussion the other day on another forum (shame on you Martin! :headbang: ) where several users asked why so few software plug-ins modeled on famous hardware get an official A/B demo from their developers.

Dirk Ulrich (Brainworx) admitted that in general, when they get official licenses to use the hardware name, the A/B tests tend to sound close enough that the hardware manufacturer doesn't want official comparisons published :beamup:

Of course he would say that, but I strongly suspect there's a lot of truth in his comments ;)
