Has anyone gotten an iPad app to control the Boog? I’m thinking that GeoShred or ThumbJam would be great controllers, if the necessary midi connection is possible.

I decided to pick up a neutron as well.
i dont like the way the neutron sounds, i think its is permanently routed through an overdrive circuit and that ruins it, just like the novation bass station 2. people have actually modded that out and then its ok. im waiting for the crave that one sounds great ... and the pro one of course, they all use them same CEM chips btw.

No doubt the Pro-One will be interesting. I will almost inevitably grab one of those as well. I expect I will use the neutron more as individual components for expanding my eurorack system, but the way I see it for the 250 I paid for it (including shipping), I could buy a single BBD and maybe a filter, so its hard to justify not getting it in that sense.

agree, neutron sounds harsh to my ears, but I thought it was because it has a bright filter fed with bright oscs that I was hearing.

Also agree, the crave sounds very nice. Maybe B does better when they copy other designs rather than try to innovate?

Sorry to slam this with so many posts. I put together another piece with the model-d as the bass-line. I just can't believe the results I'm getting from this thing. I'm starting to think that bass capabilities were somewhat lacking in my set up before:

i see a lot of blinkenlights but can hardly hear the boog. instagramm is not the best way to publish music ...

what you should hear is a CEM osc through a CEM filter, essentially a monophonic prophet 5 which is quite broadband anyways. so why mess with the gain structure or run it through an unnecessary overdrive? its just a design mistake which they did not repeat with the crave. behringer are listening to their customers!

I mean, obviously, that's true, which is why my bandcamp link is in my signature. I'm not sure how you can hardly hear the boog though it's the main synth line here. Instagram is nice for documenting short things that I'm working on that might not make it to an album for a year or so.

Replaced the bamboo cheeks with rosewood, turned out pretty good apart from my taking measurements from the original cheeks and not from the chassis/skiff, which is why one screw is missing. It does not line up. Probably going to make a couple more to fix the problem.

nice! but bamboo ends? i wish i had bamboo on mine, its some really soft wood that dents easily when you drop the synth - which happens now and then when my dog gets into the mix ;-) i think metal with leather like some of the original arp odyssey have would be stunning.

@lilakmonoke The cheeks that the Behringer model D come with are bamboo, very light and dry, almost feels fake or like plastic. Mine were dented and the screws were tightened to much and indented the wood there also. Ended up making new cheeks from rosewood, which is a hard wood and more durable. It's only sanded and treated with dark paste wax, no stain.

Yes, but they have that row of fragile white keys to sacrifcially protect the metal and leather if you go anywhere near to either. :sadbanana:

This synth sounds so good it makes me wish I just saved and bought the real deal years ago. I had an SE1x for a while, thinking I had what was close enough, never really got along with it, assumed I was just not digging Moog sounds/architecture and never looked back. This Behringer version has left quite a different impression. Very thankful to have access to this sound for so little cash now. And this definitely erases any doubts about buying more Behringer instruments, even switching current stuff over to Behringer versions.

Boog vs Eurorack...... The main synth lead line coming in at 2mins 35secs on this track was made by sending a Boog output into an optomix channel and chopping it up with a velocity-controlled gate sequence from a cirklon. The fuzzy warmth of the Boog offsets the crispness of the Rubicon (the high twinkly bell sounds) and the digital squelch of a Plonk (the drainpipe acid-y squelches). Please enjoy.....

I was considering moving my Model D to my main Eurorack and using the Boog case for a Eurorack sequencer module. Looks like the box only supplies +12V though, no -12V?

I used the Boog pretty extensively (as well as the neutron!) on my most recent album. This track in particular was done with live with both:

Sounds huge. The lead line reminds me of YMO's version of Firecracker. Nice work.

Thanks very much! Great spot on the lead line by the way. This track started when my mate played me Firecracker and we both got lost admiring the lead arpeggiated line.....We used the same notes as a starting point for the lead in the track I posted....so kudos to ya!

The filter is 'normalled' to the overdrive, and then the overdrive is 'normalled' to the VCA, bu you can just use a patch cord to connect the filter output(s) directly to the VCA input in the patch bay, bypassing the overdrive.

You can similarly bypass the delay, which is 'normalled' after the VCA and before the main outs, by just using the VCA OUT jack in the front patch bay as your main out.

Thanks very much Dave!

In the last 12-18months I bought a pack of GIK acoustic panels to treat my basement studio (with a woefully low roof). I also swapped out my Adam A7x speakers with a fairly shot bass response for a pair of HEDD 07s and I couldn’t be happier. To get feedback like that just ices the cake.

Sorry if it has been already asked but can I drone with it (including the filter) without holding a note on a keyboard ? Basically like on the M32.
Thanks !

You mean, that's what the a-440 switch on the right is for ?
Can you then afterwards change the pitch ?
