Proton from Behringer

The Behringer Proton

They cloned and improved their own Neutron.

From their Facebook page :

  • Paraphonic mode allows both oscillators to be independently controlled for multi-timbral sounds

  • Semi-modular design requires no patching for immediate performance

  • Pure analog signal path based on authentic VCO, VCF and VCA designs

  • Dual oscillators with 5 waveforms, oscillator sync, pulse width modulation and individual sub-oscillators

  • Oscillator waveform control blends seamlessly between 5 shapes (tone mod, pulse, sawtooth, triangle and sine)

  • 2 self-oscillating, multi-mode VCFs can be configured in parallel or series with linkable CVs

  • 2 ASR envelopes with reverse/inverse/loop/bounce options to control VCAs and wave folder

  • 2 analog ADSR generators for modulating the VCFs for unique sound performance

  • Multi-mode wave folder adds rich harmonic content and massive flexibility to the LFOs

  • 2 flexible LFOs with 5 waveforms, MIDI clock sync, key sync, phase and depth controls

  • Noise generator dramatically expands waveform generation

  • External audio can be summed into one or both VCFs to massively enhance sound generation

  • Utility functions include attenuverters, multiples, signal/CV mixer and summer for creative patching

  • External audio input with level control and soft clipping circuit for processing external sound sources

  • 64 patch points for advanced modular connection and integration with external equipment

  • 68 controls give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters

  • Complete Eurorack solution –main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack case

  • Comprehensive MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection

Comparing the Neutron and the Proton:

Features Neutron Proton
Oscillators 2 with 5 wave-forms 2 with 5 wave-forms
Paraphonic and Sync Mode yes yes
Sub-Oscillators 0 2
Multi-Mode filters 1 2 (series or parallel)
ASR envelopes 0 2 with looping, reverse, inverse, bounce options
ADSR envelopes 2 2
LFOs 1 with 5 waveforms 2 with 5 waveforms
Wave folder no yes
Analog BBD Delay yes no
Sample & Hold yes no
Overdrive yes no
Noise Generator yes yes
Patch bay points 56 64
Knobs and direct controls 43 68

I think it would be good to combine the two.
