Behringer Neu­tron

Future Music - - CONTENTS -

Uli Behringer has said that his com­pany’s Neu­tron synth, which was orig­i­nally teased dur­ing the NAMM Show, is sched­uled to ship in April. In a post on the Gearslutz fo­rum, he also con­firmed that the Neu­tron will re­tail for $300.

“We have re­ceived such pos­i­tive feed­back about the Neu­tron that we feel con­fi­dent about high pro­jected pro­duc­tion runs. As ex­plained be­fore, we work very dif­fer­ently from most com­peti­tors as we cal­cu­late our prices ‘bot­tom up’.

“This means that the larger the pro­duc­tion vol­ume is, the lower our com­po­nent and man­u­fac­tur­ing cost will be. Based on our phi­los­o­phy, we then pass th­ese sav­ings on to you.”

Of course, we’ve been here be­fore with the Behringer D, which was orig­i­nally sched­uled to ship in Septem­ber but, as far as we can tell, still isn’t widely avail­able in stores. As such, we’ll be­lieve in the Neu­tron’s avail­abil­ity when we see it. Behringer says that it could take “a bit more time” for the synth to reach re­tail­ers.

There’s cur­rently no men­tion of the synth on the Behringer web­site, but un­con­firmed specs sug­gest that it’s a para­phonic in­stru­ment with a pure ana­logue sig­nal path and semi-mod­u­lar ar­chi­tec­ture. There’s an LFO with five wave­form shapes, two ADSR gen­er­a­tors and a multi-stage ana­logue de­lay based on Bucket Brigade De­lay cir­cuits. Other fea­tures look set to in­clude an over­drive cir­cuit and a 32-in/24-out patch ma­trix.
