I’ve been on the waiting list for the Pro-1 clone since January. If it’s anywhere as good at Sequential as the Model D is at Moog I’m sure it will be well worth the $300. And I will do whatever is necessary to get the OB-X clone.
My thoughts exactly.

When’s their Behrinheim coming out?
I think it's their "Chinese Democracy".

I hope they offer the Behrenheim as both a module AND a keyboard, if anything. I'd really like one, regardless. I can't say enough good things about their Model D, so I have no doubts that anything else they release now will be just as good.

Still, though... A prophet 5 clone would be amazing. How hard could one of those be to make for a company like them? :whistle:

IN OTHER NEWS

I've been making somewhat cheesy Disco music with my synths lately and honestly it's been incredibly fun. It's also made me realize what I actually like as far as the synths I own. I definitely think I could get rid of my Roland SH-2000 and my Moog Prodigy. I just can't seem to make them work the way I want to. I'd like something to replace them though. I wonder what? Roland JX-3P/JX-8P with programmer? Prophet 6? String synth of some sort? :jacked:

Here's a clip of the fun disco-ish stuff I've been mucking around with. A lot of it is 'live tracking' recorded at about 7 am on Saturday (those brassy Juno stabs are a little off to my ears). Anywho:

I did read somewhere that a Prophet 5 is in the works from Behringer. I read it on the internet, it must be true.

Well, it was a proper article on a proper website that cited Behringer themselves, and it was published about a year ago. Prolly something they'll noodle on when the UB-Xa is on the market.

I'm actually pretty excited about this "sample robot" program that I guess has been around for a while but I just heard about. It'll automatically sample your VST synths and save to whatever format you like, so I could sample my FM8 (since there aren't any actual hardware synths that will handle the patches it makes due to its extended capabilities) into the correct format for a Korg Triton, for example, and effectively just have all my cool VST patches in hardware. And the Triton has a stick instead of a pitch wheel, which personally I prefer by far. So I guess I'm in the market for a Triton as of next year since right now I'm spending my fun money on travel.

Sample robot means that my arturia collection just got a lot more practical.

Thanks guys. It's mostly all Juno 106 except the bassline you hear at the opening (and throughout the song) is the Behringer Model D, just recorded badly as I wasn't expecting to actually record a real thing. Oh and there is a little fast plucky arpeggio thing that pops up just before the string sound comes in that sounds like a drum fill and weaves through most of the track, that's the SH-01a that I sequenced a little rhythmic line into and then upped it into the mix by adjusting the cutoff frequency. The drums are my Korg Electribe that I programmed a quick dance beat into.

Fun stuff. I absolutely love the Juno synth!

Giorgio Esteban has a nice ring to it.

I'd say whatever you want, but I was definitely digging the disco-esque thing you did.
