What are your thoughts on the Behringer Poly D? At $699, is it causing you to have GAS:

I’m pretty damn excited about this. I know a lot of people aren’t happy with Behringer’s practices as of late, but I applaud their efforts to provide the market with affordable ‘vintage’ synths. Let’s be honest, those who own the original will never be in danger of seeing their gear lose value. I think those days have come and gone.

I agree, I could honestly live without the sequencer and I think it would have been more interesting, if Behringer added the FX in similar idea/concept as they did for Behringer Odyssey. (My opinion)

I also don’t think the original Moog will lose value, but “Market interest” as end-users now has alternative options, which was not there before.

Are the tones toyish or does the sound have the bite of a mini moog

What was the mini D like?

virtually identical to a Mini Moog in a blind test. There are comparison videos all over youtube.

The second it went live on Thomann, I ordered it.

That’s what I thought about it,

I’m also excited for their dive into eurorack.

Solid Clones at affordable prices, what’s not to like.

It’s not devaluing the originals as collectors/sellers feared.
