Behringer has announced that its upcoming clone/replica of the iconic Pearl Syncussion SY-1 analog drum Synthesizer is ready for production.

There is never rest at Behringer. The company is constantly working on new products. The most recent project is a replica/clone of the Pearl Syncussion SY-1, an analog drum Synthesizer from the late 1970s. I published news about this new project in July.

Today the Behringer social media team announced that the Syncussion SY-1 replica is ready for production.

Like the original, it will have 6 oscillator modes per channel and is capable of creating a wide range of sounds. From the classic 70’s disco “peeoww” to tight bells, thunderous Kick drums and Gnarly Bass sounds.

Half a year after the announcement, the product is ready for production. It is not yet known when it will be available from international dealers. The current chip shortage has resulted in delivery bottlenecks and longer waiting times. But according to the Facebook post, Behringer has secured the chips for production.

The awesome Syncussion is now getting ready for production. It took us three revisions to nail the sound – but now it’s there. We also secured the chips for this product so we should be fine.

We’re sorry that shipping products is taking much longer than expected, but the chip shortages are very challenging and the way it looks, 2022 won’t see much improvement. Be assured we’re working really hard to get your products delivered as quickly as we possibly can. Thanks for your amazing support.
