Looks stunning IMHO. I love almost everything about it, except the external PSU. Here's hoping there's space inside to place it and add an IEC socket.

I've already bought this in my head...

You know that Uli's on record as saying he only does to wind you up? ;)

Love the attention to detail here real engineering.
Some really nice sounds too. Even so, it's still not for me. I just can't get my head round this way of working.

Yes. I am that Linux nut.

Some subtle changes to the original too. Osc sync x 2 added, more waveform outputs, PWM on all oscs, time range switches on the envelopes, and slightly different normalled modulation. I'd suspect the reverb would be digital, too. Mono/Duo voice mode switch.

It'll need a case, like, can't be doing with rackmount synths :D

:lol: I think he *must* do, because they managed to get an internal PSU in all of the DeepMind synths, the diminutive VC340, and even on the tiny XR18. Why something this size needs a damned external PSU is beyond me. :headbang:

I've always wanted a 2600. And if it's good enough for Elf, count me in. :tongue:

Yes it looks very nice, we’re spoilt for choice aren’t we? Is it the modular or this or....

I bet it’s similar price to the subsequent 25.....

Out of interest, is all of this hardware (still) designed in Manchester? With the ridiculous rate of Behringer's synth releases I wonder how big is the team that does all these designs? Two original designs that I can think of (Deepmind and the Neutron, and who knows what else in mixers etc.) and a lot of modernised vintage gear... that's a hell of a lot of work

Yes - I'm extremely interested in the System 100 and System 55 modules as well. Hopefully they'll stagger the releases just enough for me to give a transfusion to the ol' debit card in between each one :D

Wow, that video is indeed most impressive, both on audio quality and attention to detail 8-)

With the nods towards SMD circuitry reducing oscillator temperature variations, it may even end up being more stable tuning-wise than Korg's own re-issue.

We'll have to wait and see.

They have synth teams in Manchester, Italy, Japan and possibly some in China, The Philippians and Germany (Willich, original Behringer HQ). I believe there are at least 100 people in the Manchester r&d centre (Music Tribe Innovation Manchester).
