Behringer SPACE FX is a new 24-bit digital effects module that gives you 32 algorithms for your Eurorack modular synth for $49 USD.  

Effects are a nice tool for polishing sounds or giving them more space to unfold. Depending on the proportion of the effect in the sound, it can also play a primary role in the sound design process. Whether keyboard, software VST, or Eurorack, effects are popular tools everywhere.

Behringer today shows a new solid effect module for Eurorack at a very low price.

SPACE FX is a 24-bit digital stereo effects module that is powered by KLARK TEKNIK algorithms. Probably the same as in the B Odyssey which also has a multi-effects section by KT. The module gives you 32 effects algorithms, each with 3 adjustable parameters.

It gives you 15 different reverb effects including rooms, chambers, halls, plates, and springs. Then, you get 8 different delay and modulation effects including echo, chorus, flanger, phaser, and tremolo. And there are also some more unique effects such as pitch shifter, talkbox, LFO filter, and a clipper distortion.

According to Behringer, it also includes combinations of the different effect types for further sonic manipulation. The tap button offers manual syncing of delays and other time-based effects. Visual feedback is provided by a display very reminiscent of that in the B Odyssey.

On the interface, there is also an FX on/off switch that will be replaced by a high/low input level switch in the final version.

First Impression

At first glance an interesting module. If they’re the same as in the Odyssey, they’re solid, good-sounding algorithms, and at $49, they’re a very good deal. A little criticism: where are the CV inputs for the parameters? It is a module for Eurorack and the format lives from the possibility of modulating everything. Even if the module costs $79 afterwards, CV inputs would be very good.

Behringer SPACE FX will be available for an estimated price of $49 USD. They will ship as soon they receive the chips required to put this into production.

      • What’s that supposed to mean? CV modulation possibilities are what make modular FX units truly alive. Otherwise, it’s literally just a multi-FX pedal at Eurorack levels. Still great for the price but nothing a mixer or a DAW can’t achieve.

        • With modular I associate versatility and freedom. You can put your signal flow together as you want. And that includes that most of the parameters can be controlled with CV. If that isn’t, then the module is basically a pedal. I could hook up a pedal just like this and it gives me the same options without taking up valuable rack space.

  1. Behringer replied to a facebooker on their page that the fx are different than those on the Odyssey.
    Also they’ll make a unit with cvs

  2. With no modulation inputs it’s essentially a guitar pedal that operates at Eurorack signal levels. A missed opportunity there really.

  3. So basically just a glorified FX pedal rather than something taking on the benefits of modular?

    I get that this is probably still a great value for $49, but you’re delusional if you think CV inputs don’t make FX truly come alive.

    • I like modulation as much as the next guy, but for $49, this is amazing for those moments when patch needs just a bit of delay or reverb somewhere in the signal path. Its a no-brainer to buy one..
