Behringer & GliGli: Uli can not miss the big synth week and announced that GliGli join the Synth team to develop classic analog synthesizers
One can definitely say: what a Synthesizer week! Everything started with the teaser from Ampethron, a DSP Synthesizer, then the new Hydrasynth, KORG Nu:Tekt NTS-1, Roland and finally today Modal Electronics with the new Argon8. But one thing is missing, one thought. Uli Behringer could have thought that and today announced a collaboration with GliGli to develop classic analog Synthesizers. Thus Uli enlarges his Synthesizer team with another member but who is GliGli.
GliGli is a French developer and expert in analog synthesizers. Among other things, he has released a firmware update including replacement hardware for the Prophet-600, which makes the synthesizer fit for the future. One will see which synthesizer he will be involved in.
Behringer & GliGli Statement
GliGli and Behringer announced today that they have entered into a collaboration to develop classic analog synthesizers.
Fabrice, aka. GliGli stated: “Behringer reached out to me to help them bring iconic synthesizers back to life. For many years it has been my passion to create a much improved firmware for the Sequential P-600 and to design my own poly synth projects. Uli’s synthesizer Vision provides a fantastic opportunity for me to contribute to the re-imaging of some of the best synthesizer designs from the 1970’s, and to make them accessible to everyone – a Vision I profoundly believe in and want to be part of.”
GliGli continues: “My goal with P600fw was to have the vintage polysynth of my dreams. I used my computer science and electronics knowledge to make something that was both easy to install, capable of getting the most out of the analog hardware and most of all, fun to make!”
Uli Behringer, Founder of Behringer and Music Tribe commented: “It’s an honor to have GliGli on our team – Fabrice is an amazing synth designer and I am so proud that we could win him for our ambitious Vision.
Ever since I designed my own synthesizer in 1977, I have been passionate about synthesizers and today, Behringer is on a mission to bring back classic synthesizers as well as design completely new instruments and make them available at prices everyone can afford. We at Behringer believe that everyone should have access to the amazing synthesizers and sounds of the 70’s and 80’s.”
Uli continues: “This partnership also demonstrates that we welcome collaborations with boutique manufacturers as we believe we can perfectly coexist and complement each other. We are currently recruiting 70 experienced synth engineers from all over the world to join us in our synthesizer mission. People interested can directly contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
