The prophesied Minimoog clone from Behringer (new kings of the budget synth market, it seems) is now available to pre-order, with a chunky price drop from what was originally advertised.
How low can Behringer possibly go? Their model D Minimoog clone has hit the pre-order market at a surprisingly low $299. No complaints here.
The Behringer D has enjoyed a remarkably fast turnaround, it seemed like only yesterday that the budget synth was in prototype stages. Back then the advertised price was $399, so the $100 drop isn’t a small cut by any means.
It’s anyone’s guess as to why Behringer chose to hamstring their price so bluntly, but the common thread within the media seems to point to Roland’s recent announcement of the SE-02 Analogue Synthesiser as a major catalyst.
Whether Behringer are trying to undercut Roland or not, we can’t say we’re not psyched. This bad boy looks like a ton of fun… and cheap is good!
