Behringer has shared a sneak preview of an upcoming polyphonic synthesizer, the Pro-16.
The Behringer Pro-16 appears to be closely based on the classic Sequential Prophet-5 synthesizer, below, which was recently reissued:
Details are still to be announced, but it looks like the Behringer Pro-16 will essentially be a knockoff of the Prophet-5, with increased polyphony. The increased polyphony, though, promises to be a transformational change to the design, because it may allow the classic Prophet-5 synth voice to be used without concerns over voice stealing.
Behringer says, “Not only did we employ the original circuitries of all 3 revisions, we also added many features such as 16 voices, multi-timbrality, LCD display and a lot more. We started the ideation of this project around 5 years ago and it has since grown into an incredibly powerful flagship synth.”
This is an early prototype, so it may be a year or more before the Behringer Pro-16 is available.
