Behringer Model D Analogue Synth
Behringer Model D Analogue Synth
Get loud and get powerful.
The Behringer Model D is a Eurorack-sized reincarnation of the legendary analogue monosynth, the miniMoog. Step into a brand, new world of musical expression with the fat pulsing basses, searing leads and celestial pads offered by the Behringer D. There's so much versatility and control. You can truly create your own sound. Throw a patch from the Main Out to the Ext In, crank the Ext In Volume until you hit overdrive, play a note, and twist the filter cutoff. You can really feel the power of this compact monosynth.
The fat, punchy sound of the D is bolstered by Behringer’s addition of an overdrive circuit you can patch in and control via the Ext In jack and volume pot in the Mixer section. But analog synthesis is not always about blistering leads and belching basses. This synth is also capable of eerily accurate simulations of acoustic instruments such as woodwinds, brass, and strings. The Behringer D’s classic VCF is the heart and soul of this synth. The D’s filter is smooth and musical, with a nice bite when you dial in a bit of resonance. From aggressive to serene, the Behringer D deploys a universe of sonic possibilities.

Fantastic SynthBy: Ivan on 25 December 2018I am really happy with this synth. Great little unit.
Great soundBy: Felipe on 25 December 2018Has some limitations, but some other features that make up for it, like more modulation options. And the sound is really, really amazing, definitely worth having this synth in your studio or even for live purposes.
Model D MoognessBy: Odysseus on 2 October 2018Only giving this 4 stars so far, not due to the inability to reason with the device but more so that the knobs are smaller than the previous Mother32s I have purchased from Kosmic. Whilst it has a unique flavor of sound, I tend to gravitate more towards the M32s due to their creamier filter. This aside it is great value for money and I suggest anyone who has an arsenal of gear to get one, are they are 100% accurate reproduction of the MiniMoog, no, but it gets pretty close so at 1/10th the price is a good alternative to the original. The 4 stars as stated are due to the smaller knobs and a somewhat cluttered spacing of controls for live performing. Is it fun to use?, sure but it takes an understanding of synthesis to use so more for intermediate/advanced users. Personally I don't like Behringer's latest adopted cloning methods of all the great synths but it is what it is. If you're new to synthesis, this would be a little hard to coax than a M32, there is no sequencer and things can get very messy very quickly where as a M32 can sound very smooth going from percussive sounds to nice resonance overdrives with white noise for some lovely high frequency cymbal types of hits, depending where your envelope is set. Is this a fair assessment comparing the 2? well considering I bought both from Kosmic, yes and it's about the immediacy of the hands on ability to coax your sound design. Bang for buck though the Model D is great value for money, just don't expect immediate results without understand how synthesis works. You have 3 OSCs on Model D compared to 1 on M32, this is where you need to work harder on the Model D but that can be a bonus too, is the M32 a simple tool?, only on the surface but it can get much more complex than a model D due to its intensive patch bay (Model D is somewhat limited). All in all I am happy with the purchase and as long as you understand the Model D does require work to get it going, it is very good value for money and should work very well with an already established setup, for novices if you're willing to take the plunge be aware it's requiring a sequencer to drive it (BeatStep Pro would be a good start) and some other gear too accompany it. I have 2 M32s and I can and have made tracks with these 2 alone, I don't think I could do the same with 1 Model D and a M32 (the beauty of having an inbuilt sequencer on the M32). Avoid the fanboyism on YT and forums about how good a Model D is and go and play one for yourself. Whilst my review is very subjective, it is important to be able to convey pros and cons, Model D is great, but it does need other gear to play along with. On a final note, Lynton from Kosmic does a stellar job in fulfilling my orders as does the rest of the team, so Kudos to Kosmic Sound.
