Behringer today announced that Victor, a Eurorack oscillator that’s based on the Vector Synthesis capabilities of the Sequential Prophet VS, is now shipping.
The Prophet VS introduced Vector Synthesis – an approach to synthesis that lets you position four different oscillator waveshapes at the extremes of an X/Y grid, and then control the waveshape mix, using a joystick controller or other types of modulation.
Behringer announced the Victor about a year ago, but many of the company’s synths and modules have been delayed by shortages of the electronic components needed to put designs into production.
The Victor has CV & Gate inputs for monophonic control, but Behringer has suggested on their Facebook page that the USB connector will let Victor be used polyphonically. We see no mention of this in the module specs, though.
Behringer hasn’t said where the module name comes from, but readers of a certain age may recall a running gag in the disaster comedy film, Airplane, that plays on the word ‘vector’:
