Behringer Announces the UB-Xa - Oberheim OB-Xa Desktop Clone

Note this is likely more than a year out.

Per Uli Behringer:

"As many of you know, synths have been my passion for the past 40 years. Sometime ago I have set the goal for Behringer to bring back some of the loved analog synth jewels from the past.

Please allow me to share some thoughts with you and apologies if this is a longer thread.

Does this make any commercial sense?

"These synth was built in 4865 hours of hard work by the 16 years old Ueli Behringer founder of the studio equipment firm BEHRINGER in ca. 1982. It seems to be an additive synthesizer if the 16 faders on the left side controls the spectrum of the first 16 harmonics."via Frederic

  • Behringer is known for creating flattering alternatives to popular gear at a budget price.
    Amazona.de – an online German electronic music magazine – suggests that it should be possible for a company like Behringer, using current mass-market manufacturing technology, to create a synth “inspired” by a vintage polyphonic synth and sell it for approx 500 euros.
    Current analog synths are made primarily by boutique manufacturers – so it’s not hard to imagine that a company like Behringer could sell analog gear at revolutionary price points.
    What do you think? Do you think analog synths still offer superior sound compared to digital synths?
    And, if a company like Behringer could create a vintage-style polyphonic analog synthesizer for 500 euros/$700, would you want to buy it?
