My TD-3 turned up on Sunday.
its spot on. Very Yellow, great filter, the DS1 distortion makes it sound great, its fun if admittedly a little distracting, and they have got the build quality totally authentic - cheap flimsy plasticky crap.

To be honest I think they are killing it at the moment, now i'm no Behringer fan, and 6 months ago based on previous experience I would NEVER have considered buying another Behringer product - now I have 3, the KT-76, KT-2a and the TD-3. They all do a job well enough, sound good, are built well (well aside from the TD-3) and represent good value.

I don't think you can knock them for that...

This is very true!
for me, a Hydrasynth would trigger a clearout as it would cover several bases, and as you say, version 2 might be incrementally better, maybe 16 note poly with multitimbrality for keyboard/keyboard/ribbon split.

However, I think the Hydrasynth KB as it stands is a classic due to -

the novel Wave morphing method
the playing interface
& the programming interface

It seems to have some good, straight forward VA too, always difficult to tell as the demos focus on complex or wacky sounds.

Only as long as you can take back control of the parameters.

Sounds like you’d prefer a ‘Berexit’ model. :D

As predicted Bono/Poly anyone? :clap:

one less octave than the original though, probably as it allows them to use the case for the Poly D.

Ouch!

I bought one of these for a friend after seeing it in a secondhand shop. He'd been asking me for quite some time if I ever knew of one becoming available to tell him.

I bought it and took it home. Within an hour I was hooked. As a poly it's utterly useless (so 3-octaves is reasonable in this context), but as a mono... Slurp! It has that filter that doesn't lose bass when resonance is applied. Here's hoping they've nailed that.

I almost bought one during a nip into town before a gig in Holland around 10 years ago. It pained me to leave it, but it made sense at the time.

And now this.

Sigh... Where the heck am I going to put all this stuff?!?! :headbang:

How much is it?
I’m on the verge of opening my own synth museum, courtesy of Behringer.

I don't believe we've been told yet.

Sub-500 quid would be my hopeful guess.

They (Behringer) get the originals you get the clones, seems alright to me.

Pricing has not been released yet but I would expect it to be close to the Poly D price wise, which currently is £659 from Thomann.

I’m stoked for the pro 800 clone. If that is solid, they’ve pretty much already got a hold on my funds. To be able to have 101, pro 1, 808, pro 600 analog clones at the price range is a good achievement imo - hopefully it kickstart some manufactures to stop making toys!

I saw it announced at £550, now, that’s a very reasonable price, so reasonable in fact I may have to avail myself of one, who could possibly resist? I’m sure I’ll find a use for it if I try hard enough...

:D

They're looking at getting into the more DJ/Sampler side of things and have posted on their FB a render for a sampler/groovebox type of thing, supposedly called the JAM.

Maybe Behringer are in danger of being too prolific, too soon, and possibly running out of ideas at some point. Where is this all going?
The Japanese giants are in danger of being wiped out, old gear isn’t worth buying anymore, Behringer really have become the worlds music shop with little alternatives worth considering, if we’re honest about it.
Why not buy their stuff? I do, it’s more than good enough these days, it performs very well, their synths sound like the originals, at least good enough to stop me buying "an original"
Be interesting to see the journey that Behringer take over the next few years, and the effect it has on the musical equipment market, predicting the course that journey might take isn’t easy either. Innovative, and genuinely original products, not reproductions, may see a change in course, and a change in public perception,
