It’s not a secret. Most people are waiting for a Behringer SYNTHI VCX3, an analog clone of the legendary EMS VCS3 Synthesizer. Since the leaked information in December 2017, there was no news anymore. Now a picture cheers up the rumors again.
Behringer published on Facebook a picture of a 16×16 pin matrix suspiciously looking like an EMS VCS3 clone. What we know so far is the leaked information from 2017 where they speak of a 16×16 pin matrix, which also shows in the published teaser. Coincidence? No.
Whether it will be the leaked Behringer SYNTHI VCX3, I know so far not. The company plays with us the classic teaser game again. Pure speculations: it could be that the EMS VCS3 clone becomes a Eurorack Synthesizer. That would be crazy. On one side you would have pins and on the other side you can plug in cables.
