New Toys!

For a long time I’ve been wanting to get some proper analog synths to add to my studio, and I’ve now managed to add two! The Minimoog has always been on the wishlist, but they cost a lot of money. Behringer have come to the rescue with the launch of their Model D. It’s an accurate clone of the Minimoog, sounds fantastic and a fraction of the price of the real thing! It’s Eurorack compatible so can be incorporated into a modular system, if I wanted…

This brings me on to toy number two! Also on my wishlist is to get a basic Eurorack system to begin experimenting with modular synthesis. If you ask anybody who’s into modular they’ll tell you it’s an expensive hobby. I figured something semi-modular would be a good entry point, and would be something that could be added to later, so again here’s Behringer to the rescue. The Neutron is their brand new synth, it’s paraphonic, it’s got two oscillators, two envelopes, sample & hold, and a patch bay to re-route and create your own sounds, and is Eurorack compatible. Looking forward to experimentation with this one…

So now I’m off to make some music, you’ll be hearing these two beauties very soon!
