NAMM 2019: Behringer demonstrate their Pro-1 analogue monosynth
The Pro-1 was conspicuously absent from the Live-stream event on Wednesday. But now Behringer has released a demonstration video of their tribute to the Sequential Circuits Pro-One monosynth.
It has 2 Curtis 3340 chip oscillators and a Curtis 3320 chip 24dB 4-pole filter. There are 2 ADSR envelopes, one for the amp and one for the filter. There’s a sequencer and an arpeggiator, lots of modulation and a good spread of CV patch points. Not many details given in the video but it did give us a chance to hear it in action for the first time since the glimpse at Superbooth last year. The fact that they are using an MS-101 to trigger it makes me think the sequencer isn’t working yet. Built to the same format as the Model-D and Neutron we imagine that it can also drop into Eurorack without any trouble.
Price we’re told is $299 and shouldn’t be far behind the others in terms of release.

Describing the oscillators and filters as “Curtis” is sloppy, since the Behringer synths all use their own CoolAudio clones (the V3340 and V3320), *not* the also-available genuine Curtis re-release of the CEM3340.
Sonically it doesn’t make much odds, but accuracy is worth something.
6/10. Must try harder.
Fair play – just going on what the bloke says in the video 🙂
Thanks for pointing that out.
