If that's 3U, it's gonna be tiny. Could have added more patchpoints as well...

B€hringer Eurorack, who'd have thought that some years ago. Looking forward to the confusion with their Eurorack mixer line :lol:

But I guess this is not for me anyways.

It's still a mockup, they could add a few things.

My first impression was that it might be more of a little standalone unit (that can be placed in a Eurorack system as well if you wish to).

=> Behringer Boutique Mod-D 8-) .

If it really gives you an authentic Minimoog sound for $400 they'll sell it by the truckload...

How many years will we have to wait for this one?

If it's even 75% of the sound of a real Moog, I'd buy one. And I was planning to never buy another synth.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

I was under the impression that they actually built one ... a prototype? Is that not true?
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

I'm buying one, can't wait until their arp 2600 and CS80 clones,

CS80 clone for 2k

even though they might have a second to get it together, my deepmind arrived but wouldn't make any noise, boot errors, had to send it back and wait longer for a new one.

and thats why the only piece of behringer equipment I own is a cheap usb audio adapter.

I am frankly curious to play one just to see what they can pull off at that price point. But mostly I see it as an opportunity to get a good deal on a used Sub 37 when someone sells theirs to get 3 of these things to poly chain them. I've heard 4 poly-chained slim phatty's and found it underwhelming.
I am no longer in pursuit of vintage synths. The generally absurd inflation from demand versus practical use and maintenance costs is no longer viable. The internet has suffocated and vanquished yet another wonderful hobby. Too bad.

Is this something they actually said they are doing, or is this just Behringer baiting the competition like the Behringer Odyssey from two years ago a month before the Korg Odyssey was released, or the Behringer analog drum machine proposed the week the Arturia DrumBrute was released?

An obvious question is if the "trade dress" is close enough to get them in trouble like their Boss pedal clones did, and does Moog have the resources to sue them if such a claim is possible. As some of you may remember the original design for their Boss pedal clones was literally a direct copy of Boss's classic case and knobs, minus the pedal set screw. By the time they hit the market Behringer had redesigned them to the current form they use.

16-voice Midi Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 16-voice polyphony
But how many voices has ONE synth unit?


I am thinking that this is a too early arriving april joke.

And with Behringer ... good that they try to do these things, however these products all need to be re-maintenanced due to the movable details and capacitors choice in it, plus other design flaws.
I am still in trouble with their V-VERB units and other racks power supplys, ground loops and other design flaws needed to remove. So I suspect that those other products are similar ones -- needed to open, recap the PSUs soon again if they are impulse power supplys.

It's clickbait. Every few years they pop a "question" onto social media to create a click storm and lots of chatter to increase Google rankings for their brand. "Would you like us to make a $1000 ARP Odyssey?" "Would you mind if we made a $600 Minimoog"? I am even beginning to wonder if the $1000 Juno-106 clone was a fake too. Where is it?

And why do they think that it's OK to copy other designers work? I find it deeply offensive.

In fact, it never existed. It was just that, a photoshopped fake to fathom interest and to generate clicks. Eventually, it evolved into the Deep Mind, though.

Same thing with the Behringer 808 that popped up a while ago.

As for the rest, I agree with every word you say.
