  1. Anybody have a source for alternate knobs for these modules that do not immediately fall apart and look crappy? That’s my main pet peeve with these modules, they just cheaped out a bit too much on the knobs.

      1. “Have a look at the knobs of the original 2500”

        Yeah, I’ll just pop out to the shed and take a look.

        I haven’t used a 2500 for about 30 years, but as I remember them, the knobs were anodized aluminum and pretty indestructible.

        The Behringer ones just have a metallic sticker on them and the stickers fall off pretty quickly. When that happened to me I was like “Just charge me an extra $10 and use knobs that don’t fall apart in a month!”

    1. Funny how you’re looking for premium knobs on a cheap module from a even cheaper company.
      Just leave Behringer behind and buy something decent that helps the modular community.
      Everyone wins. 🙂

      1. If by ‘premium’ you mean knobs that don’t fall apart in a month, then yes – I do have that expectation.

        It’s just frustrating that Behringer doesn’t know where to STOP cutting corners sometimes. Like I said, they could have charged $10 more and not had any unhappy customers.

        1. It’s more frustrating that people still think Behringer will stop cutting corners like they could have better working conditions as well, but hey there’s a crowd that just wants cheap junk so this is what they get.

          That crowd could put their money towards companies that aren’t like that but I guess that crowd always has excuses.

          1. Excuses like they can’t afford and/or don’t want to spend huge dollars on other gear?

            I have two pieces of Behringer gear, a Model D and a Neutron. I have had them for years and use them often. They sound great and haven’t given me any problems whatsoever. They’re going to have to pry the Neutron from my cold, dead hands. It’s a great piece of gear.

  2. Did you ever notice that most people who demonstrate the latest Behringer synth gear on YouTube have an accent from some European country.

      1. LOL. The point was that some of these latest Behringer products are not yet being sold in the United States. People in Europe are already demonstrating/reviewing the gear on YouTube, often long ago, while people ordering the gear here in the States are on waiting lists. Hence, if you see a demo/review in the English language on YouTube, it is most likely by someone with a European accent.

        As a side note, my parents are both from Europe, and I grew up speaking German.

      1. Behringer is a wholly owned subsidiary of Music Tribe, based in Manila, Philippines. The company manufactures in Zhongshan, China. Not sure why people keep claiming they’re German.

        1. Yeah, headquartered in the Phillipines to avoid taxes, manufacturing done in China, headed by a Swiss guy.

          They were based in Germany 20 years ago.

          Anybody know where the company is actually run from? I think for a while it was from Hong Kong.

  3. I wonder why all photos of behringer gear are illustrations? I want to see what it actually physically looks like, not a mock up generated by computer graphics.
