Rumours have abounded regarding Behringer's recreation of classic synths, but now, for the first time, we can confirm that the rumours are true. The Behringer copy of the Minimoog Model D does indeed exist and it does work.
The synth features USB MIDI, plus 5-pin DIN MIDI for Input and Thru, a decent amount of CV control, which is especially welcome among the Superbooth crowd, and a desktop form factor, rather than Eurorack.
It should cost an astonishingly low $399 but as yet is a few months off reaching stores.
For more information about the features of the Model D, look no further than our recent review of Moog Music's reissue of the Minimoog Model D.
The Model D news follows news that Behringer will also release a three-octave, 6-voice version of the Deepmind 12, called the Deepmind 6. The only difference between the 12 and 6 being the number of voices, the smaller keyboard and the lack of built-in wifi. It also has smaller controls, so that they can all fit on the front panel. It will cost $699 and is already in mass production.
The company have also revealed a desktop version of their Deepmind 12 polysynth, costing $899. Availability is similarly imminent.
