Behringer has taken their System 55 Eurorack modules and bundled them into complete modular systems to mirror the Moog System 15, System 35 and System 55. About time too!
System 55 modular bundles
One of my criticisms of the Behringer System 55 modules is that they arrived quite randomly and slowly over time and really didn’t give you any clue as to how they could work together to emulate the classic Moog modular systems. When you bought a Moog modular system you’d get a particular selection of modules and features and that level of curation was not present in what Behringer was doing – until now.
It seems other users felt the same way and Behringer has taken their feedback and turned it into complete bundles based on the Moog System 15, System 35 and System 55. This is more like it!
Each system comes in a Behringer Eurorack Go! case which is slightly disappointing as I’d hoped for something a bit more cabinet like, but it will certainly keep the price under control. They also get the new CM1A MIDI-to-CV converter.
The System 15 comes with 16 modules and features a 921 and two 921B oscillators and the 914 Fixed Filter Bank. The System 35 almost fills an entire case with 25 modules increasing the oscillator count to 5, adds another mixer, more VCAs and envelope generators. Then the big System 55 spreads itself across a Go! case and a half with 7 oscillators, 5 VCAs, 4 envelopes and the 960 Sequencer.
Behringer also have a handy bracket to hold two Go! cases together which will probably be available separately.
These look fantastic and is exactly what they should have done from the beginning. While System 55 modules are individually interesting it’s not until you get them together do you really get a feel for them as Moog intended.
