5th socket from the bottom is out of line. Apart from that it looks great.

Gizza job, Behringer. :headbang:

If you'd show me that picture in April, I'd have been excited. But now, the enthusiasm has waned and a couple of people have talked me out of it somewhat. So I'm not sure. I guess it all comes down to the price.

RD-8 firmware V2 is nearly ready and they are looking for beta testers, once testing is done then the RD-9 will follow soon after.

2600's now ready to leave the factory, price should be confirmed soon but they are still working out how cheaply they can price it to cover manufacturing/R+D costs and a small profit on top.
Some more pictures from the Behringer FB page follow.

Another update from the Behringer FB page, Mono/Poly is nearly ready for full production and the first units should leave the factory in November, part of the delay was to add an auto tune function to help keep it in tune.

Firstly beta testing for RD-8 (and 9 in the end) firmware 2.0 is going well, beta testers have suggested a lot of things that could be added and they are working on getting them integrated into the firmware, all going well we are looking at about 2 weeks for the firmware to be released. Midi sync is supposedly now rock solid!

Secondly they are teasing a render of a product that they haven't decided whether to make or not and so are putting the render out as a feeler, looks like JMJ might be interested in this one (even if he owns the worlds supply of the originals!).

You heard the man, production decisions are based on their Facebook feedback. So stop complaining and start smileying.

"What’s up guys!!!!!"

Looks like someone has tamed it, cut its arms and legs off, made it "table top friendly" after watching that Edgar Winter clip, please.
What attracted me to it when I first saw and heard it, it looked how it sounded, dangerous, mysterious, like it really meant business.
Then the New Romantics got hold of it and it sounded like a toy, and turned orange.
I’d like one, but just can’t bring myself.

:crazy:

Don't forget that us proggers were using the 2600 too. And some of us found the black/orange livery more visually appealing and helpful than the boring grey-on-grey panels of the older models.

I can forgive Behringer making it much smaller, because it now fits in a standard 19-inch rack - bucking the current all-things-desktop obsession. And they ditched the dumb speakers and (as far as I know) the pitiful spring reverb. An extra LFO and illuminated, colour-coded fader caps too. All good in my book. In fact I see no down sides to this one so far.

This 2600 is right up my alley and will be given a chance as soon as I can get my hands on one.

In the early 70's I can remember sending off to ARP for the original sales literature, it blew me away, that grey colour, looked really menacing and purposeful.
I had the chance to buy an orange one in 1996 for £1,100 and I turned it down, oh dear.
