Always wanted one because of the format factor. Even if it remotely sounds similar, I am in...especially if they put LEDs on the sliders.

Switchable 4012/4072 VCF too... SlayerBadger!
LED brightness trim in the back.

looks like their screen printer was a little drunk at the wheel! Guinness ftw!

not surprised they removed the speakers, and are going with a digital reverb. they're not after 100% authenticity. and because they did, it makes sense they moved the ring mod and pre-amp to the bottom, then added the module from the 3620 keyboard.

looks like they added some of the CMS type of mods: osc sync switches, time range switches, and 1/4" output. plus there's now PWM for osc3 and all four waveform outputs.

curious to hear how it sounds. at the price they'll likely sell it for, it may be worth it even just as a voltage processor.

I hope the teaser of tomorrow will be the arp 2500 and on the day after that the synthi 100. Miley Cyrus

Am I the only one who wishes there wasn’t USB and MIDI?
On board effects seem to be bypassable, so I don’t really care if it’s digital. Just happy it doesn’t say ‘famous Klark Teknik Midas reverb’.
Yeah I might buy one, but also depends on how well they execute. I was going to get the Korg Odyssey, but it felt cheap and flimsy when I checked one out so I skipped that.

Eh? Why would they not include MIDI control?
This is clearly aimed towards the synth enthusiasts that are on a budget.

There are a ton of CV Gate keyboards and sequencers these days. You don't need a vintage synth to plug up anymore.
Microbrute, Beatstep etc.

I've had bad experiences with MIDI interfaces tacked onto to circuits that werent designed around MIDI.

This is going to be well cheap anyway though and not everyone has a MIDI to CV keyboard and even if they do, they are probably using it to drive something else, so definitely best to just plug a MIDI cable and play the thing.

Midi to CV?
What is the need for that?
Just use good old fashioned CV Gate technology.
My point was more that if you are doing vintage analog, why introduce the pain, suffering and uncertainty that is MIDI.

anyway. Found some list of it's features and this one has me LOLing.

Because a lot of people have MIDI controllers and MIDI sequencers?

Down with CV, bring on MIDI 2.0!

I hope they will have a back and white panel as well!

The filter options are a good idea. Looks like they learned from the Karp Odyssey's three-way filter switch. Nice.

But the LED brightness control seems surprising - does this mean it is going to have illuminated slide pots like a TTSH? Seems like an unnecessary expense to me.

Holy cow, this is bonkers! What a time to be into synths.

Lately Behringer seems to have lots of mockups, but few new products actually being released for sale. I wonder if they are pulling their engineers every which way on so many projects that no progress is getting done.
phats
They demo'd a prototype at superbooth or namm 2018 i think.

Honestly I wish more manufacturers gave a view of what their pipeline was like.

Going by how identical the Model D is, I think they'll come close enough.

Yes I think so too.
I have a tech friend who has a vintage Minimoog and a Behringer Model D. He changed some components on the Behringer D and made it spot on to the vintage Minimoog he owns...so I suspect the same can be done for BARP, but I also believe its going to be close enough from the factory.

This may be the very first hardware synth that someone buys. The impression I get from reading newbie posts in social media is that a lot of Behringer fans are first or second time hardware synth buyers. If they don't make it for as wide a base as possible they will not sell as well or get a lot of complaints like why isn't there USB/midi/presets. Remember, most their new users are not coming from a hardware based background and are new to hardware and the B-gear may be the centerpiece of their studio.

If this turns out to be real...ZOMFG, especially if they offer it for <$500 USD.

What are the chances this actually has a spring reverb?

Nil.

They already said it will be a digital reverb.
nectarios
I suspect TC Electronic will be involved so it will be usable.

I also think it sill 500-600€. Let's see.

That sucks a bit, but I imagine it would be relatively easy to mod it with a real spring reverb
