Some will love it no doubt. I programmed one for a year or so - I never want to see another. A poor cousin of the 808 without any of the charm...

Noooo the 606 is lovely!

Seamless switching between record and play on the fly, light and bouncy compared to the
808, sonically limited maybe but it's got character.

Interesting technical snippet: whereas on the 808, the kick is a single osc pitch-swept and the snare is two fixed oscs mixed, on the 606 it's the other way round – the kick is fixed but the snare is pitch-swept. I think this gives the 606 snare a bit more life, personally. Smack it with some accent and see.

Nice of Behringer to stick a clap on there as well. Makes up for the toms to some extent, they were never the 606's strong point. Better for trigger outs than their sounds.

I've had my 606 for the best part of 30 years, not sure I'd be able to replace it, but I think this looks like fun and they seem to have got it right, going from that video.

Interesting that they cloned the clap circuit from the 110, rather than the more complicated one in the 808. They've certainly nailed the sound of that snare!!

(Still using my 606, bought new in '82 !)

New video with Rob Keeble (AMS Synth) on how he got to working for Behringer and his history, featuring Behringer's 1972 ARP 2600.

We do and I’m actually v interested....in this and I won’t win any bets with this, but I’m guessing it’s cheaper than the KARP version.
With their modular and now this, I can see a Behringer next to the Moogs. There I’ve said it and it feels ok! :bouncy:

I just secured a Berry Poly D and my lovely local retailer gave me an unexpectedly chunky loyalty discount too!

No ETA, could take a while, but no worries - I've got some stuff with Yoshimi-Pi to get finished in the meantime as well as a few other bits and pieces I've been a bit too busy with work to progress as much as I'd have liked lately :D

They are also looking in to doing the CR-78 as well, this would be done using the RD-6 case. The original preset buttons would be ditched although the patters that they were associated with would be either stored in the sequencer or downloadable.

Uli Behringer wrote:CR78 question from Uli
We have received many requests to clone a CR78. We assume you’d love to have the original analog sound engines but don’t need the rhumba and foxtrot etc. rhythms as direct selectable presets as those could be stored in the sequencer.
What would you think if we use the RD-6 casing and sequencer and simply replace the upper section with the instruments from the CR78?
Perhaps we have some folks here who’d want to sketch something up and so you can all vote for the best design. The winner will get a free RD-6 that’ll be soon released.
That would we awesome
