Semimodular Synthesizer

The Behringer Neutron has been one of the most discussed topics in recent weeks. Either you like him or not. The Neutron stands out wit its red design and this polarises the synth community. Personally, I’m now familiar with the design and don’t have big problems with it (beta test phase). It looks different than many of the other Synthesizers that are often black or silver.

But there are also enough people who want a black design. Behringer has not yet responded to this request. Mick Gründer from the Eurorack Synthesizer Facebook group has thought about it and designed his own black faceplate.

Paraphonic synthesizer with authentic dual 3340 analog oscillators for insanely fat music creation
Pure analog signal path based on legendary VCO design to recreate classic sound performance
Semi-modular architecture with default routings requires no patching for immediate performance
Oscillator waveform control blends seamlessly between 5 shapes (tone mod, saw tooth, pulse, triangle, sine wave)
Individual pulse width / tone mod control provides ultimate sounds
Paraphonic mode allows both oscillators to be independently controlled
Flexible LFO with fi ve waveform shapes, MIDI clock sync, key sync and delay / fade in
Two analogue ADSR generators for modulation of VCF and VCA
Multiple stage analog delay based on legendary BBD (Bucket Brigade Delay) technology
Overdrive circuit adds rich analog warmth and edge to your sounds
Noise generator dramatically expands waveform generation
36 controls and 7 buttons give you direct and real time access to all parameters
Switchable, self-oscillating, multi-mode analog 12 dB/Oct VCF with dual output (e.g. LP+HP available on jacks) Utility functions including attenuators, multiples, slew rate limiter and summers for creative patching flexibility
32 in / 24 out jack matrix for an incredible amount of patching options
Patchable audio-rate sample and hold with glide for added creativity
Headphone output with dedicated level control
External audio input for processing external sound sources
Comprehensive USB/Midi implementation for connection to keyboard/sequencer
Designed and engineered in the U.K.
The Neutron will be available in May for a price of $349 USD.
