Edge, Behringer takes over the analog percussive Synthesizer concept of the Moog DFAM, adds MIDI+ USB and packs it in a pink Crave-like enclosure.
With the Crave, Behringer has created an unofficial clone of the Moog Mother-32 for little money. Unofficially because it was never communicated by Behringer, and because of the 3340 chip. And according to the latest news from today, the Behringer team was once again inspired by the Moog engineers in Asheville.
The Edge is a clone of the Moog DFAM Synthesizer in pink, with USB + MIDI, and for significantly less money.
Edge is a semi-modular analog percussion Synthesizer that is based on the concept of the Moog DFAM (Drum From Another Mother) from 2018. It has two analog VCOs with pulse and triangle waves, oscillator sync, and FM options. There’s pink and white noise, a decay envelope, a filter with high and low pass modes, and its own Decay and Envelope amount.
Both oscillators are triggered by a dual 8-step sequencer, one for the pitch and another for the velocity. You can program each sequencer with 8 knobs and select whether the oscillator responds to pitch or not. On the top, you have a 15×10 matrix where you can patch your sounds or integrate them into any Eurorack synth setup.
Since the concept, feature set, parameters, sequencers, etc are the same, we can speak of a DFAM clone here. But one thing is different, the connectivity. Unlike the Moog DFAM, Behringer has expanded it with MIDI and USB including MIDI clock and a clock divider/multiplier. That’s a good addition.
For many, the Behringer Edge will be the perfect partner to Crave. I don’t doubt that. However, the release has a strange aftertaste because it is a clone of an existing Moog product. That you can still get in music shops worldwide. I fully support Behringer with his vintage clones as you can no longer purchase the originals. I like the 2600 or my Pro-1, great replicas at super fair prices. Here it’s a different story…
Behringer Edge will be available for $219 USD (list price). No information about the availability and pre-order option.
