Ah, thanks. I'm willing to bet that it sounded nothing like a real rotating speaker, even if it was a nice effect! If Behringer made a real one, I'd pre-order four of them immediately. :bouncy:

Yes, the Zoom effect is great in its own right, one of the most unique simulations, but of course, nothing like a real Leslie.
The Zoom is very "technicolour" and works well on synths. I always liked guitars through rotary cabinets.

Anyone picked up any scuttlebutt about the much anticipated DS80/CS80 homage recently? It seems to have gone very quiet.

A few pics have been passed out, and Behringer have made noises about their bespoke poly AT keyboard, but not much otherwise.

A bit more than noise vis-à-vis the poly-at keybed ;) given that it exists in what looks like a pretty much finished form.

There also seem to be rumors over on GS that the 2600 will have a spring reverb, don't know the source though,

But will they release a dumb USB polyAT keyboard, or only as part of a synth?
If the former I'm in :bouncy:

Damn, I don't care if it has a plate reverb. I want one.

Me too, but a spring reverb is just a bit of nonsense - like those duff speakers, which Behringer had the good sense to ditch.

Can someone just remind me how Behringer went from being a reviled producer of mixing desks and cheap accessories to a rolling program of classy analogue synth emulations at bargain prices that everyone wants? What happened?

Speaking personally, I still wouldn't touch their analogue mixing desks, or a number of their accessories, but they seem to be doing a decent (if not flawless) job with their synth recreations.

I think a big part of the difference is the people they have acquired.

It's not just about the synths. Let's not forget the X32, based on Midas technology, that really has proved itself. The Klark Teknik recreations are not too shabby either, in my experience.
