The Behringer Model D, Minimoog clone, analog synth was on show at Superbooth 2017 in Berlin just over a week ago... and we (and others) shot video and did some sound demos. However, there were obviously a few tweaks that still had to be made.
Bear in mind those prototype units had just been shipped into Germany and the team from Midas / Behringer hadn't even had a chance to get hands on and play these units before the press (yes, us included) descended upon the Behringer booth like vultures demanding demos, info, and the like.
Since then Rob Belcham, one of the main engineers at Midas / Behringer, took a protytpe of the Minimoog Model D home to give it a proper test. And here's the demo he's sharing with us and the world of this $399 Minimoog Model D analog clone that continues to cause much debate within the synthesizer community.
We'd recommend grabbing a pair of headphones and giving this a proper listen. Yes, it's only 1:35 minutes long, but we believe this demo is more representative of, or at least closer to, the sound we expect the final production units of the Behringer Model D to be.
Sound Moog-ish enough for you? For $399 we believe it's not far off! What do you think?
Here's the video demo we took of the Model D prototype (before the firmware had been fixed) at Superbooth 2017:
And here's the spec of the upcoming $399 Minimoog Model D alaong synth clone from Behringer:
Analog Synthesizer with 3 VCOs, 24 dB Ladder Filter, LFO, 16-Voice Poly Chain and Eurorack Format
Stay tuned to AskAudio for more info of the Behringer Model D as and when we get it.
