Consumerism I guess? In a way (s)he’s perfectly right. Only it seems an easy battle to pick, at least to me.
Minimoog has been cloned several times before. Behringer is just first manufacturer selling it for a rational price when considering the manufacturing costs.
I think what Behringer is doing is awesome, I don’t understand those people at all who say it’s wrong - because it’s not. Where were those people when Studio Electronics cloned Minimoog? Or when Creamware released Minimax?
Oh well, haters gonna hate I guess.
A lot of good clones and very good VSTs too. I was amazed by NI Monark. And the official Moog Model D app is superb too! (and it’s “a real Moog”, for the ones among us experiencing guilt at using clones )
In the context of life. To arms, brothers and sisters! Death to the capitalist overlords!
More seriously, I do agree with psyclone001 that when buying something we should be aware that it’s repairable or not. The Behringer, as good as it is sounding, doesn’t look like it will. And it’s an unfair advantage against the Moog, or an hidden cost. But then again (again), 1/10th of the price.
What makes you think that? Behringer is made from discrete components, just like Minimoog.
My bad I thought it was soldered chips. The board is tiny but yeah that’s definitely repairable. That kind of cancels all the discussion about sustainability, but that’s for the best.
Anyone got theirs yet? Are you happy with it?
Local store is expecting a few units next week, thinking of grabbing one.
Ordered one, should be here on Tuesday. It was very hard to resist at this price point!
So I spotted some in stock and couldnt resist.
Could someone reccomend a nice sounding hardware reverb for dedicated model d duties that doesnt break the bank, multi effects could be good too but not at the cost of poor quality sound. I see zoom ms70 cdr’s are cheap and flexible but would I be better spending the same or a bit more on just reverb.
e2a. Available in djkit.com if anyones interested
Alesis NanoVerb2 or TC Hall of Fame, though the Zoom seems really good for the money. I’d suggest the Alesis as it’s designed for line level, I know lots of guitar pedals work fine but the dynamics can suffer.
For a bit more you can get a Lexicon MX200 if you’re ok with rack unit format.
I just recently found one for cheap second hand. I am kind of impressed - it sounds fantastic. I had a real minimoog d a few years back but honestly i dont recall whether or not they sound similar. Either way, for 250 bucks I think itll stay around for a while, even if i dont use it all that much.
I got mine yesterday. Build quality is really good actually, the knobs are tight, they have a nice feel. Didn’t get to play with it much though, spent a lot of time trying to control it via CV from my A4 MK2. Didn’t succeed. Will try again today
the bass patches around 8:30 is where it’s at … not helping my GAS
Just got this on Friday. Pretty much ignoring everything else I own for it. It’s incredible.
I was sequencing it via midi with my Digitone.
you’re not helping man! you’re not helping lol GAS is real lol
It should be. This thing is a no brainer at this price. There is no reason that every single person shouldn’t own one.
haha I know, but the last couple of days I’ve been thinking a lot about flipping some of my gear some of which is elektron stuff, all of this menu diving is leading me nowhere … like for the price of a digitone and A4 MK2 I can probably get a nice triple rack of mother32 + DFAM + sub-harmonicon (if it ever came out) plus a behringer D and a Behringer MS 101!
I’m keeping my digitone but everything else elektron is going. Digitone pairs well with the model d I’m finding.
