We know the question everyone is asking since Behringer unveiled their bold plans to introduce a $299 clone of the Moog Minimoog Model D. How close to the real, 3000 USD-plus thing does the copy-shop alternative sound?


The Behringer D is scheduled to ship in September, which means those with the cash to spare are quite close to understanding this for themselves. Before this happens, though, everyone can get a thorough perspective on the matter.

YouTube’s Synthpro channel published an extensive, near hour-long video comparison between a vintage Moog Minimoog Model D and the Behringer D. Jareth leaves almost no stone un-turned while putting the two against each other, going through many details and offering his educated opinion.

What’s the quick conclusion? In a nutshell, the Behringer D is built reasonably well and sounds dead-on! You will be hard-pressed to guess between the original and the copy in a blind test. Behringer have done their homework for sure, and will successfully bring the iconic synthesizer to the masses. Granted, there’s no keyboard, nor a classy-looking wooden case. But it’s the sound that counts, and the Behringer unit delivers.

Enough talk, already. Fancy yourself an hour this evening and get to know the Behringer D before the Music Group unleashes it upon the market. Also, tell us your opinion about the synthesizer and Behringer’s decision to resurrect analog classics like the Minimoog in a price-conscious format!
