What Uli Behringer Writes
We like to give you an update on our RD-909 development. We have now entered TMS or Tool Made Sample stage which is one stage before pre-production. We have now built 10 units for final testing to ensure everything is perfect. What you cannot see on the current artwork is that we have added even more functionality. One of our engineers came up with a brilliant idea to allow the sequencer also modulate the Analog Filter and Wave Designer.
We still need to ask for your patience as it will still take several more months to ship the product. The guys here are very excited and work hard to speed up as much as possible! We’re still targeting US$ 299 retail (depending on import tariffs).
These pictures shows the “tool made samples” which are advanced-stage prototype, made using the same sort of materials and tools that will be used in production.
The Behringer RD-909 is planned for 2019 for a price of $299 USD.
