Behringer today shared a teaser for ‘Brains‘, something new to be released on June 15, 2021.
They haven’t shared any details, but the video appears to show a new hardware device – maybe a MIDI/CV sequencer that can act as the ‘brain’ of your rig or a groovebox sequencer?
Share your thoughts in the comments!
Update: Behringer has revealed the Brains to be a Mutable Instruments Plaits clone.

Bring it on =)
Hopefully something really versatile to pair up all of their current machines
Kind of a funny “self-own” headline for B-word.
Definitely hardware. Judging from the button icons- drums, chord, synth (or octave?), granular?, might be a groove box type thing. I wonder which product it will copy, or if it will include any original ideas.
A new DAW !
OP-1 Clone. $100 bucks, any takers?
thats exactly what I was thinking…and yes.
I would absolutely be in on a cheap op1 clone
And we all will find out here shortly. Wondering where it’s being developed. Maybe in the UK?
sounds like some kind of I/O device or computer/ipad interface/mixer
I think it’s just the final version of The Jam that they were working on. https://www.gearnews.com/behringer-jam-an-mpc-style-sampling-groove-box/
That’s probably it
too late. mv-1 and mpc one are already there.
Guess I can’t put urls. They’re working on a MPC like device called The Jam. My guess is that’s what this is.
Wow, behringer doing something creative and individual XD
Maybe their cloning mode will be over soon because there is nothing more to clone anymore …
Appreciate going for unique ideas!
That Behringer MPC clone Jam
I got it from a reliable inside source at Behringer that it’s a eurorack compatible jaw harp with MIDI implementation. What you see in the teaser clip is the outboard effects box.
tell your boss i said hi
Ummmm…..My boss is a director at the pharmaceutical company where I work. I don’t think he’d care if I said hi on your behalf, but I’ll let him know.
your other boss
You want me to say hi for you to my wife? LOL.
Sounds like Plaits, looks like Plaits. I think you guess what‘s coming. Behringer and Original are two words doesn‘t match.
I think David Carlton is right this device is the JAM
Reminds me of the folds in a pair of dress slacks for some reason.
The colored icons in the video and image match the icons from Mutable Instruments “Plaits” which is the “spiritual successor” to their “Braids” synth
“Braids” — “Brains”
So whatever it is, it looks like it’s probably using a Mutable Instruments engine.
Even Behringer’s brains are cloned. No surprise there.
wow a Elektron Model Samples clone, that is cool!
For a few seconds I thought the Airwolf theme would kick in…
plus 2 unannounced synths within the next 3 weeks. lot of releases. or at least announcements.
Yes, if past experience is anything to go by it can be a year or more from announcement to release. I think they announce things to gauge response before they even commit to a schedule/prioritisation building them!
Midi bongos with integrated speak and spell style conductor
Zaquencer, as Benn Jordan says on his youtube Zaquencer look-see “this is the brains of it all.”
It’s a Plaits clone in Eurorack Format.
It’s a eurorack module: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U59OzyB6lBM
