Uli Behringer just announced more details for the MiniMoog Synthesizer. If they can sell their D Synth for 400$, this will be a massive seller in the music stores. On top, it will be Eurorack compatible, so he will attack also this market.

This is a first draft of our “D” Synth with a proposed feature set below. Our goal is to design in a Poly Chain feature that allows combining up to 16 synths through Midi. Depending on the feedback we will then decide if we move further and build a first prototype. 

Our targeted retail price is around US$ 400. 

Analog Synthesizer with 3 VCOs, 24 dB Ladder Filter, LFO, 16-Voice Poly Chain and Eurorack Format

  • Analog synthesizer with triple VCO design
  • Reproduction of original “D Type” with matched transistors and JFETs
  • 0.1% Thin Film resistors and Polyphenyline Sulphide capacitors for frequency stability
  • Analog signal path based on authentic VCO, VCF and VCA designs
  • 5 variable oscillator shapes with pulse width variation
  • Classic 24 dB ladder filter with resonance
  • Fully analog triangle/square wave LFO
  • Switchable low/high pass filter mode
  • 16-voice Midi Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 16-voice polyphony
  • Overdrive circuit
  • Noise generator
  • Complete Eurorack solution – main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack case
  • 46 controls for real-time access of all important parameters
  • External audio input for processing external sound sources
  • Low and high level outputs 
  • Comprehensive MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection 
  • 3-Year Warranty Program

  1. Good price- I would buy it at the drop of a hat, especially if it sounded as good as or even close to an original model D. Polyphony would be absolutely dreamy.

  2. This would be a huge seller especially if it sounds like the mini. I already have 2 Moog M32's, but for $400.00 this would be an instant buy (providing it has "that" sound). Very smart to also make it Eurorack compatible…but I would also say in doing so more patch points would be very important to modular users.

    While on the subject, I'd love to see Behringer hire Tom Oberheim or put him on retainer as a consultant and reproduce the OBX/OBXa in a desktop version. I'd love to see some of Tom's great synths be re-manufactured by Behringer but only if Tom is somehow connected and financially rewarded for all of his great work that he has given us over his life time. He deserves that IMHO.

    Thank you for moving forward with affordable classic design and I'm sure new designs as well.

  3. I vote for the same: MIDI connections in the back like the Slim Phatty, and made it rack mountable. Polyphonic expandable in the same way as the Roland's boutiques. And patch points for the modular guys.
