Behringer are supplying a market, and you can't knock them for that. I never had the money back in the day to buy a VP-330, for example, but now I have have one (close enough!) sitting by my side. And for anyone who ever dreamed of owning a MiniMoog the Model D is heaven-sent.
But if you're jaded with all that then there's stuff like Summit, Hydrasynth and Osmose to keep your interest. Beyond that, take a look at the Eurorack cottage industry. Some of that stuff is so innovative it makes my head spin just trying to figure out what it does!
These are good times to be into synthesis of all persuasions. There's really no need to mourn one leg of development when all colours of it are happening around us! :thumbup:
I think all this new Behringer stuff is exciting, and I certainly wouldn’t rule out buying some of it.
But, when the chips are down, and money isn’t an issue, there is just stuff that "does it" that has absolutely no compromises sonically or aesthetically. This is a bit like the LDC microphone thread, I think that there is a large percentage of people that would agree sometimes you just have to have something that just gets on with it, something you don’t have any doubts about.
For me personally, those are on the fingers of one hand, synth wise, Moog, Buchla, and for all the other bread and butter stuff, Korg or Yamaha. As for Eurorack, I can’t get involved in that, I’ve tried it, it doesn’t work for me, a stupidly insane number of infinite options that make music your very last priority.
