Behringer spins the Moog DFAM into the colourfully semi-modular EDGE to run alongside their CRAVE synth with dual VCOs, sync and FM.

It’s not a massive surprise that with the CRAVE being based on the Moog Mother-32 a take on the DFAM percussion synths wouldn’t be far behind – although it has been a couple of years. I wonder if they’ll have a go at the Subharmonicon next?

Anyway, so far we only have the video to tell us anything and what we know is that it’s an analogue semi-modular synth designed for percussion but capable of pulling off basslines and FM tones. It has 2 oscillators with triangle and square waveforms, hard sync and you can feed one into the other for FM. There’s pink and white noise, a Decay envelope, a filter with high and low pass modes and its own Decay and Envelope amount.

Along the bottom runs an 8-step sequencer with Pitch knobs above and Velocity below. You can select whether the oscillator responds to pitch or keep itself percussive.

The comprehensive patch bay gives you lots of scope for patching things in and out for maximising the modulation and variation.

Behringer has added MIDI and USB including MIDI Clock and a clock dividing/multiplier knob to take the BPM up to ridiculous levels. They’ve wrapped it up in a shockingly pink enclosure that would look fabulous alongside your CRAVE.

      They’re not the only ones that makes a derivative product. This is not why you should attack B – they’ve done some bs (more recently than not) where they’ve used their weight to punch down to small companies that defend themselves, but to make a derivative product? Eh.

    • A says:

      Meh. Knockoffs are old as time. Why is this board moderating free speech?

      B has other reasons to dislike them

    As a 69 year old retired technician on a fixed income,Behringer has made it possible to afford new synthesizers (buying used is a bitch). I have been buying Behringer products for years. People need to stop whining and make some noize, can’t wait for the Edge.
