Behringer has officially introduced the K-2, an updated clone of the Korg MS-20.
The Behringer K-2 was originally announced in 2017, along with the MS-101 and four additional unreleased synthesizers, as the K-20. The K-2 follows a wide array of hardware and software clones of the MS-20, but packs the retro synth design into the form factor of a desktop/Eurorack synth voice.
Here’s the official video intro:
- Analog synthesizer with dual VCO design
- Analog signal path
- Semi-modular architecture with default routings
- First and second generation filter design (high pass/low pass with peak/resonance)
- 4 variable oscillator shapes with variable pulse widths and ring modulation for ultimate sounds
- Dedicated and fully analog triangle/square wave LFO
- 2 analog Envelope Generators for modulation of VCF and VCA
- 16-voice Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 16 voice polyphony
- Eurorack compatible — main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack case
- 36 controls give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters
- External audio input for processing external sound sources
- USB/MIDI support with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection
