The Behringer Model D synth flexes its muscles in a synth-pop track

Some folks are already making good use of the new Behringer Model D synth.

In a video from Mr Firechild, the synth is well and truly put through its paces in a synth-pop context. As you can see, it does just fine. Behringer Model D synth

The Behringer Model D Synth gets a good workout from Mr Firechild. It’s deep kick, tight and funky bass and spacey lead sounds are on full display.

The Behringer Model D pays homage to the 70’s era Minimoog: a synth that has acquired near-mythical status among monosynth aficionados. The video from Mr Firechild features layered sounds only from the Behringer D and as you can hear, it’s capable of a wide range of synth-pop tones, filter sweeps and subby drones.

The Behringer D is a eurorack sized model, so it can slot into a modular rig, or work standalone. And while staying true to its inspiration on almost every front, it has welcome 21st-century additions like MIDI capability and deeper CV control.

Surely one of the most impressive features of the D synth is its potential price of $299 US. Hot on the heels of the recent Roland SH-101 speculation, we could be in for a very interesting period of monosynth mania.
