Behringer has closed out the year by sharing a preview its upcoming CAT synthesizer, a clone of the Octave Cat from 1976.
The Behringer Cat is synth module in Eurorack-compatible format, like its earlier synth modules. It was originally announced two years ago, along with the company’s plans to clone the WASP, ARP 2600, Korg MS-20, Roland SH-101 and other synths.
- Analog synthesizer with dual VCO design
- Reproduction of original “CAT SRM II” circuitry with matched transistors and JFETs
- Analog signal path based on authentic VCO, VCF and VCA designs
- 4 variable and simultaneous oscillator shapes (Sawtooth, Triangle, modulated Pulse and Sub
- Octave Square)
- Paraphonic mode allows both oscillators to be independently controlled
- Oscillators can be modulated from 6 different sources with 2 modulation depth attenuators
- Classic filter design (high pass/low pass with peak/resonance) with self-resonance capability
- Filter can be modulated from 6 different sources with 2 modulation depth attenuators
- Dedicated and fully analog triangle/square wave LFO
- 2 analog Envelope Generators for modulation of VCF and VCA
- White noise generator
- 16-voice Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 16 voice polyphony
- Complete Eurorack solution – main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack case
- Audio input for processing external sound sources for enhanced creativity
- External control inputs and outputs (High Note CV, Low Note CV, Gate, Filter etc.)
- USB/MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection
- 3-Year Warranty Program
Details on pricing and availability are to come.
