I’m sure it will sound wonderful when it does come out, but I’m still not sold on it, I’m wondering, just how far can you deviate from the original form factor and looks of an original synth? before it looses its magic entirely.
It’s a bit like making an ARP2500 and putting it in condensed plastic case, third the size, getting rid of the knobs and switch matrix, and replacing them with buttons and a touch screen. The electronics and sound could be identical, but the alchemy and the way it works, the magic, would have gone.
I just wish Behringer could have followed Korg on how they did theirs, the Berry just looks too much of a compromise to me.
