The eagerly awaited Pro-1 and Crave synthesizers are on their way according to a Facebook post from Behringer. 1,000 units of each are being air-freighted to the Thomann Music Superstore in Germany in order to cope with the demand.
The Behringer Pro-1 is based upon the Sequential Circuits Pro-One from the early 1980s. It’s a 2 oscillator Curtis chip monosynth with a 24dB filter, twin envelopes and a 3 waveform LFO. There’s a rather nice modulation matrix on the left, a little sequencer and arpeggiator and a bunch of CV patch points running along the top.
You can now preorder the Pro-1 for £297.05 from Thomann.
Behringer says this isn’t really based on anything but many people have pointed out that it follows the features of the Moog Mother-32. Although it does have a different sort of oscillator. It’s semi-modular with plenty of patch points and has a sequencer. It looks great, doesn’t take up much room and doesn’t follow that same Eurorack style of the Model D, Neutron and Pro-1. It’s fun to play with and comes in at a remarkable price.
You can preorder the Crave for £134.62 from Thomann.
