There is now this:

But we don't have a clue yet what it is, so it might be a synth or it might be X32 related, but it's supposedly 30 years in the making (30 years being how long Behringer has been in business)

Adding a letter at a time. W then I. Maybe Behringer are doing their own 'version' of Windows? :D

Or maybe it's just a 'wind-up'.

Who would have thought it? Behringer buying the Women's Institute...

I really hope this is a workstation with 512k of RAM and a 24-character LCD/3-button interface. With a multisampled bassoon and house piano.

Oooh and an electric guitar expansion card.

At the time of posting Thomann now have both the Crave and Pro-1 in stock, though I guess not for long.

Just checked, they're saying 1-2 weeks. That was quick.

The first of the new 'W' teasers is intriguing. This is the best image I could get from the video ... looks to me like the back of something synth-like but there's not a lot to go on. I too wondered if 'W' stands for 'Workstation' but there's no connectivity present that I can see. Maybe it's more of an Interface of some kind.

I like what they're doing generally these days with the teasers ... though hopefully they won't drag it out too long!

I have a Crave on order, but I haven't had any news of dispatch as yet.

I tend to think that Behringer are teasing some kind of touch-screen mixer, but it's as intriguing as it is bloomin' irritating!

I nearly succumbed but as I already have a Moog Mother-32 I can't see it as anything other than a pure GAS purchase and I'm really getting better at that these days!
