Behringer has shared the first public image of another upcoming synth clone.
The company shared the above image of Jeffrey Ford, part of their Las Vegas support team, on the Musictribe site, along with his impressions of their latest synths.
Look closely at the image, though, and you’ll see the Behringer K-20 – a Eurorack format Korg MS-20 clone – next to the Behringer D and Neutron:
The company originally announced plans for the K-20, along with a lineup of Behringer synth clones, back in 2017.
Here’s what Ford had to say about the upcoming Behringer K-20:
“I never had an MS-20, so this was a learning experience of wonderment and at times pure awe.
What a flexible little monster. Most definitely a generator of sounds from outer space. Add some tape delay and I’d go missing for hours on end. “
No details on pricing or availability have been announced.
