      1. If we use bible folks as an analogy then Nick is akin to Jesus and Daniel is just a really cool dude who makes some tasty unleavened bread.

  1. Sometimes I wonder really a lot. Most of the synth-sounds out there are just rubbish. I mean really: It sounds that bad, when the demo started, that I had to close the window. I had this over and over again: Another example are the youtube Demos for The TTSH clone of the Arp 2600. I really had the feeling that this just doesn’t sound that good. After the build I was that surprised in a positive way – I couldn’t beliefe it that those demos are that bad and the synth that bad. The same goes for Buchla, the PPG wave 2.3 and lot of other synths. Even so called “synth-specialists” let me wonder sometimes. Compare the amazing demos of with some ordinary youtuber – You’ll see that lot that sounds rubbish could sound actually great. (Sorry for bad English)

    1. Roland – I couldn’t agree more. I was so impressed by the demos etc on that I asked to contribute a review of the Oberheim OB12.

      Its so much nicer to get a feeling for the sounds in a musical setting rather than a couple of random key presses as they go thru the patches.

    2. While musical demos are good, I think you’re in the minority there. The point of the over the top patches is to give a sense of the range and depth of the parameters and the possibilities. From there most of us can then extrapolate as to how this could be used in our own music. Personally I prefer Nick’s demos where he’ll point, click and turn stuff and then maybe do a quick tune at the end. I agree though the opening segment of that was pretty awful

  2. Just watch Ronnie perez’s comparison video of model d and behringers d. its great comparison and gives idea about what behringer d can do. if you ask me its not bad for 300 bucks.

  3. Every time I see a video featuring this little beast, it confirms to me that buying one and having fun with it would be a good idea. I’ll clearly need a delay pedal, too…

    1. Good and better depends often on taste. I find the Behringer D an impressive model D clone, fantastic for this price. But hear the difference using Speakers with a great low end, there is certainly something missing at the Behringers lower keys on low frequencies. Questionable if it is only a EQ issue or a sonic difference depending on different phasing effects.

  4. Great demo, thanks Daniel. Musical, practical and inspiring. Still got the guilts about buying stolen intellectual property though. The hpf alleviates the guilt somewhat.

  5. Do you know the funny part?
    At this price this will sell more than the real Moog model D. And I’m pretty sure, some of these will have some issues with time just like the real model D. It’s not a secret, the real D is unstable and needs caps replacement with time. The big difference is that, while the Moog guys don’t talk a lot about their issues, they will be very vocal about the Behringer malfunction models.

  6. I’ve paid almost that much for just a ladder filter. They’re gonna sale a bunch of these. (Which, by the way, people have been selling for quite some time. Why is it only outrageous if behringer does it?)
