Behringer Phat 108 - A Concept Poly Synth?

Its not a reality though - honest      15/02/10

Over at Amazona.de, a large German Music Production site, they've been running a bit of a concept experiment.

Various  question were  asked about what kind of analogue synths the voters would buy.  52 of the 4658 voters picked at random we assume, received a refurbished Juno 60, a pair of Behringer TRUTH B3031A active monitors, or one of 50 Amazona Ts.

More questions were also asked:

Assuming you could get a classic analogue with modern features like usb/midi/transmitting of controller data/etc. would you buy one within the next 3months. If so, what model?

To get the juices flowing, Behringer also contributed a concept design,  in the form of a series of images of a fictional synth - namely the Phat 108

Interesting? Perhaps they are indeed contemplating entering the synthesizer market, and to be fair, the number of people who cite the classic Juno polysynth as one of the holy grails of affordable synthesis, may provide Behringer with enough of a market to actually go ahead - but of course, that is speculation. But I'd say that looks a lot like market research to me..

 

 

Thanks to Dekkers for the story.
