Behringer today announced that its 2500 Series Clocked Sequential Control Module 1027, a Euro format knockoff of the Clocked Sequential Control Module 1027 from the classic ARP 2500 modular synthesizer, is now available.
The 1027 module is an 8-position step sequencer module, featuring 8 rows of 3 controls. This gives you three sets of adjustable voltage outputs for each step. It can be clocked via an internal oscillator or external clock.
The 1027 is designed to be used to control other 2500 series modules, including the 1026 Preset Voltages or 1050 Mix Sequencer modules, but the company says the module is fully Eurorack compatible.
The most notable changes from the original ARP module are reducing the number of sequencer steps from 10 positions to 8, and changing the design to use patch cords vs the original’s matrix patching.

The Behringer 2500 Series Clocked Sequential Control Module 1027 is shipping now, priced a $149.

Looks like a nicely priced module to noodle away in!

There are similar modules that take up a lot less case, personally I think it’s too ugly to live.

Behringer are really going for it this week. I wonder if theyre going to keep this release/announcement schedule going for a while.
(This might be a duplicate post) what will thry do when they’ve cloned everything? I’d like to see them making more original synths. I’m sure their sales figures are telling them what’s most profitable. Also it shows how conservative the synth buying public are by not wanting original instruments (or is that when’re the likes of Korg and the boutique manufacturers step in?)
B answered that question for us already. They’ll just change something minimally, and re-release it saying ‘its the closest thing to the original ever, even tho we claimed that already with the previous release!” 🙂
Seriously, this is so unsustainable as a long term business model. You cant sell a new upgrade just a few years later if we’ve all choked to death on the fumes from the factory 😀
Many of these have never been available to more than say a few hundred or thousand people. The Prophet 5 sold around 10,000 units. Some, like the 2500 modules, we’re talking low hundreds. Also, most of this technology being cloned has been the backbone of all the major electronic music for the last fifty years. Your argument is ahistorical.
Switching from 10 to 8 steps is boneheaded….
It’s definitely dumbing the module down, but having 10 steps would probably be confusing to a lot of people that would buy this.
10 steps or gtfo
The original matrix was patched with stepped sliders. Hence less spaghetti.
Yo Behringer – how’s about a 2500 slider matrix module? Or better yet a full size 2500.
Did someone else notice those PPG Wave looking modules in the background at 0:20?
You heard it hear firs folks haha
those are known pieces of TC Electronic hardware
it says so on the panel
HOLY smokes dude
one of them is the TC2290-DT
an over the top plugin controller – not very exciting
yeah too bad (?)
the other one is a PEQ-3000
still looks a bit like the PPG!
The original 10 steps is what makes the 1027 interesting. Booo!
