The Anticipated Release of Behringer’s Model D is Finally Upon Us!
Behringer first made a name for themselves in the synth world with the notorious Deepmind 12. And what a success that turned out to be. Not only did Behringer manage to create a 12-voice synthesizer that sounded superb, but they did so on their first attempt – whilst maintaining the classic affordable Behringer price tag we’ve all grown to love.
Shortly after, followed Behringer’s 6-voice alternative, the Deepmind 6.
Behringer is now proud to finally release their long-awaited Model D clone. The clone takes inspiration from a certain classic synthesizer from Moog, one anyone with a basic Moog history will be able to recognise. But maybe you don’t recognise the name. Or maybe you don’t recognise its look. You will certainly recognise the way it sounds. Behringer has truly outdone themselves with this one and produced something that sounds eerily similar to the original, at around 10% of the price!The Behringer Model D is a 3 oscillator subtractive analogue synth with a ladder filter, noise generator, and flexible envelopes. Add to that MIDI, CV I/O, Eurorack compatibility and then check the price tag and you will find a synth that is going to make many friends indeed. Three punchy oscillators, classic 24dB/octave voltage-controlled filter with resonance, envelopes, LFO, portamento, the works. All instantly familiar only smaller. The Behringer D is a Eurorack-sized reincarnation of the legendary analogue monosynth that started it all. From fat pulsing basses to searing leads to celestial pads: this little powerhouse puts a world of musical expression under your fingertips.
Huge Moog basslines and leads just got a little bigger, with Behringer’s addition of an overdrive circuit that you can patch in and control via the Ext In jack and volume pot in the Mixer section. The Model D is also capable of achieving highly accurate simulations of acoustic instruments, such as woodwinds, brass, and strings. A mono synth that can simulate acoustic instruments? yes, you heard me correctly.
At the heart and soul of this synth, you will find a vital component of subtractive synthesis, the classic Model D VCF. Combined with Behringer’s “smooth and musical” filter, you are capable of adding a nice bite when dialling in resonance. The Model D has a luxurious vintage-style sound that’s complemented by its versatility.
Now if you’re just hearing about this, consider yourself lucky. Many people have long-anticipated the Behringer Model D’s release. Delays, unexpected circumstances and final preparations have stretched the anticipation as far as it could go. But, fear not, It’s here. It’s awesome. And dare I say, “it’s better than anyone expected”.
