Written preview, pics & thoughts: http://bit.ly/2CQc1j0 The upcoming Behringer Neutron semi-modular analog $299 synthesiser arrived at Ask.Audio a few days ago. Here's 28 minutes exploring what this little beast can do from the oscillators to filter, envelopes to the delay and more. 00:00 Intro 01:08 Build Quality 01:45 Oscillators (morphing & stepping trick) 04:32 The Filter 06:41 Noise & persuasive sounds 08:15 Bass & General 08:45 LFO 11:40 Envelopes 12:31 Overdrive 14:47.

The title says everything: Model D Behringer at its best (for me, of course). Reverb - Little Plate Delay - EchoBoy ae http://www.albaecstasy.ro
A look at how the Behringer Model D compares with the Minimoog. Many thanks to Kevin Wilson for the loan of his Behringer - fantastic generosity to help us all discover the true similarities :) Examining how it compares from a sound design and in use perspective - when you turn those knobs does it act like the Moog?? Short answer is yes!! No idea why this is 460p but there's a high res version here: https://youtu.be/_65qjJD26ok Oscillators 1:35 Filters 6:20 FM 11:10 Overdrive 17:40 Some Sounds 21:00
For more Subharmonicon and synth jams and reviews join me here: https://www.instagram.com/loopopmusic https://www.facebook.com/loopopmusic https://twitter.com/loopopmusic The Subharmonicon is a lovely, interesting and different synth from Moog. Only around 100 were hand soldered and built at Moogfest's 2018 Engineering Workshop, and there's no information currently about whether it will be released commercially. Even though availability is scarce, I decided to put together a review of this instrument, because the way it works is such a breath of fresh air when it comes to sound generation and sequencing. Also, one would hope that Moog will eventually mass produce the Subharmonicon, as they did for most, but not all past Engineer Workshop projects, like the DFAM and Werkstatt. This review includes an interview with Steve Dunnington from Moog, who led the Subharmonicon project. Steve talks about the vintage synthesizers (Trautonium and Rhythmicon) and composition theory (Schillinger system) that inspired this synth. So what makes the Subharmonicon special? Two main things. First, it has six (!) oscillators. These are sawtooth oscillators, a tribute to the original Trautonium. There are two main oscillators and each has two sawtooth sub oscillators, which can follow its main frequency at subharmonic intervals – divisions of anywhere between 1 and 15. The second thing that makes it special is its sequencers. Each of the two oscillator groups has a sequencer dedicated to it. Initially, it may seem these sequencers are limited because they only have 4 steps each. However, the Subharmonicon sequencers aren't designed to just be played in a regular step-by-step fashion. Rather, their cadence is powered by up to 4 tempo sub-dividers, also based on the principle of subharmonics. This rhythmic core produces sequences far longer than 4 steps, repeating and skipping notes in very interesting and surprising ways. Each of the two sequencers can be configured to control either the pitch of its main VCO (and sub oscillators) or just modulate the subharmonic divisions – thus generating different chords on a per step basis. In addition to new elements above the Subharmonicon contains controls we're used to seeing in Mother-32 and DFAM: a resonant low pass filter, AD envelopes for the VCA and filter, and a 32-jack patch bay with access to many of the internal controls.
This is the 1st part of the -Behringer Model D - exploring sounds & textures- video in which I’m mostly playing only with the purpose of discovering what Behringer Model D is. I’m adding, at some point in this video, Mutable Instruments Clouds for delay and reverb and Doepfer A-118 for random CV pitch. The audio file was not EQed, I only added a little compression and a limiter. My impression? Model D sounds BIG, PUNCHY, PRECISE and FAT. Solid made, no flimsy pots, nice knobs, looking great. I just can’t wait for mine to arrive - (thanks Robert for borrow me yours!) and stay tuned for a Model D part 2 but especially for a Model D - Roland SE-02 demonstration!

The Behringer Model D is an homage (or clone, depending on your point of view...) to the classic and legendary Minimoog Model D.
Behringer's main achievement, aside from creating a faithful and great sounding synth, is pricing it at $300. In this video I review some of the "cons" of this synth, and the many "pros" that make it a very enjoyable synthesizer, including three oscillators, a classic ladder filter, 5 modulation sources, two envelopes, two LFOs and a small but capable set of patch points.
