Behringer isn’t done with 2019 yet
With so many product launches in 2019 under their belts already, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Behringer couldn’t possibly have any surprises left.
Well, you’d also be wrong.
In a characteristically cryptic Facebook post, the company suggests there’s still more to come before we ring in the new year. Could it be that they’re finally launching a TR-909 clone to accompany their versions of the TR-808 and TB-303?
Pop on your tinfoil hat and let’s see where this conspiracy theory goes. Ready? Ok.
It’s nearly 2020. That number must be important. Take 2020 and subtract 808 and 303, the names of the products already cloned by Behringer. What does that leave you? That’s right: 909. What further proof do you need? Our best guess is that this news will be dropped on New Year’s Eve, perhaps moments before the clocks strike midnight.
After the year Behringer has had recreating classic analogue synths – the TB-303, SH-101, Pro-One, MS-20, the four-voice Model D – plus their new touchscreen mixer, we wouldn’t be at all surprised if it was something else entirely, too. Could it be that the UB-Xa has a launch date? Only time will tell…
