Behringer Talking About A Minimoog Clone And Other Classics

Speculation was rife and Uli Behringer chips in      06/03/17

After the success of the DeepMind 12, there has been speculation lately on the forums about what Behringer will do next, particularly in reference to them building a Minimoog clone. On the Gearslutz forum, Uli Behringer appeared to confirm this by saying that the company will be "reviving legacy synths based on authentic designs and original components." He also went on to say that "Frankly, I never understood why someone would charge you US$ 4,000 for a MiniMoog, when the components just cost around US$200. We at Midas and Behringer believe in bringing these instruments back and making them affordable so everyone can play and enjoy them."


On the heavily trafficked DeepMind 12 Gearslutz forum Uli Behringer has been dropping snippets of information about the company's intent:

"Our dream is to cover every musical and technological angle, which includes analog and digital synths, samplers, romplers, drum machines - you name it."

"We'll be reviving both legacy synths based on authentic designs and original components but we're also heavily investing in research in the areas of cutting-edge granular and waveform synthesis, etc. in order to innovate and create something completely new."

"Frankly, I never understood why someone would charge you US$ 4,000 for a MiniMoog, when the components just cost around US$ 200."

"We at Midas and Behringer believe in bringing these instruments back and making them affordable so everyone can play and enjoy them."

So far, comments on these statements seem to be fairly positive, if split between the "It will never be as good" and the "Great, I'll buy one" - what do you think?
