Behringer leaks new ‘conceptual’ series of affordable synth and drum machine recreations
Behringer might soon further solidify its identity as a “budget gear manufacturer” with the audio equipment company’s intended release of a new series of imitation vintage synths. Behringer identifies the WASP DELUXE, ARP 2600, Octave The CAT, SYNTHI VCX3, MS-101-BK, MS-101-GY, MS-101-BU, and K-20 as the synths subject to a Behringer rework in a recent website update.
The update imparts that Behringer will additionally put out five new drum machines in line with its interest in crafting affordable recreations. Among the five will be competitively priced clones of Roland’s TR-808 and TR-909, and several spinoff Linn & Oberheim machines.
Behringer recently took to Facebook to comment on the website’s update, informing the public that the information detailing the new synths and drum machines assumedly in the works are “merely concepts, and nothing more.” Behringer cites the website’s informational update as the product of an unintentional “website glitch” that resulted in the posting of “a number of different [leaked] product design concepts.”
“…the leaked information does not imply any availability at this time or even definitive evidence that we intend to officially develop or deliver these products in the future,” Behringer writes in the Facebook announcement. Only time will tell if the product line is truly only “conceptual” in nature.
