And some of us have more keyboards than we can ever use and have found external controllers and control surfaces which meet our needs. So do make keyboard versions yes, but do consider that there are plenty of musicians that don't need another keyboard to lug around.

As both a customer and a human being with a conscience, I do. And I'm certainly not alone in this, although that sentiment might be in the minority here in this forum and thread.

I voice this dissenting opinion for two reasons:

First, I've mostly made my peace with what Behringer does, because if industry leaders like Roland, Korg, and Yamaha have decided resurrecting their own designs for analog products is not part of their product strategy and these are essentially "abandoned properties," then why shouldn't a company like Behringer come along and fill that void? Especially if significant improvements and enhancements are made like doubling polyphony, improving the software and adding usable effects.

Second, gearslutz has seemingly become the authoritative source for Behringer-related product news by virtue of Uli Behringer's near-exclusive participation here. That's good for gearslutz, but if news sources worldwide are viewing these forums as source material, it follows they will also gauge user opinion here in addition to their own forums where available.

Great. Who doesn't need a 4 voice digital "circuit emulation" with tiny knobs that sounds almost there but not quite.

Re an ARP2600 clone

"Wasnt it just a 24db ladder filter and needed to be changed after a lawsuit with Moog?"[/QUOTE]
Yes, you are correct but the design and implementation differed in that the
filter response was duller than previous designs due to a fault that only gave a response of 12kHz. The latter version oscillators were also noted to be quite noisy after component changes were made from the 2600p version 3.0 onwards. Alan Pearlmans original design sonically sounds the best. But improvements made to stabilize oscillators and the aforementioned filter did compromise things. As the TTSH project demonstrated these can be overcome and a great sounding 2600 can be created. I'm hopeful that Behringer can take this further and make the better 2600 without the limitations of the original and still bring it to market at a reasonable cost. I doubt this will be as cheap as the Minimoog clone but I'm pretty sure it would be cheaper than what a built TTSH would go for.

What about a Behringer ROMpler, 5000 patches, sound effects, pianos, organs, drums, noises, basses etc etc..full suite of effects, same mod matrix as Deepmind, same filter, one bank dedicated to sample upload from micro card, synth comes with a neat plug in editor where you can edit all your samples on screen and dump straight off the card into the synth ready for playing. Solid knobs across the surface for envelopes and filters etc
16 part
64 note poly
4 trackx32 step sequencer
4 outs
2 MIDI outs

You say that like i was no human being and had no conscience. Still, i usually dont care what any companies legally deal with eachother. As mentioned, i am not digging into heater design and dead inventor claims either when bying a toaster. Its Moog that has to deal with it firstly, not me as a potential customer. As long as Moog doesnt make a claim, there is nothing to discuss imo.

I would be in a similar boat as these posters; My first choice would be VCO based; would love the CS-80 or the Jupiter 8 as many have requested, but would be equally excited to see a full blown Elka Synthex revival. There are so many digital synths and plug-ins available; I can do without one more of those. But a full fledged beast like the Andromeda (Aurora) or one of those mentioned above, that would take my money all day. Come on, Uli, we know you can do it; the question is will you?

Wasp, too, and I guess that one would be very cheap to build.
But I'm totally with you on The CAT! That thing has to be resurrected, period. SRM II model, though.

Clones or synths inspired by:
1. Elka Synthex
2. Yamaha CS 80 (or CS 60)
3. Solina String Ensamble

New one:
1. Modern hardware sampler with 8 or 12 voices, analog filters and 8 or 12 bit dac. Full midi, usb storage, possibility to convert and import samples from old Akai, Yamaha, Roland, Ensoniq liblaries.

2. Rack FX module with effects from DM12, full midi controll and VST interface to automate and recall effects settings from DAW (similar to lexicon MX VST editors).

People requesting high-end monster synths ($3k - $5k) could be disappointed. Behringer's game is mass production. I remember someone here said that they worked in MI retail and customer demand for anything over $500 falls off a cliff. I could see them doing a VCO poly synth at a few grand once they get their CEM3340 clone chips done but the real money is in huge volume of cheap stuff, like Korg has done.

I would like to see more synths by Behringer but first would like to see the Deepmind 12 become a more solid (bug free) and reliable instrument. I want to get the Deepmind 12 but am waiting a little bit longer.

You could be right; but he did ask us what we would like and we need to tell him. Besides that, if Uli could put everything in the Deepmind that he did (for under $1000 US!) he could probably do an A6 for a thousand more. He wouldn't be charging 3-5 grand for it (though me and more than a few others would pay it; just look at the P~6 and OB-6). Anyway, here is that picture again of one that I would like. Can't hurt for Uli and others to see it again.

In addition to that cool A6 Aurora, I'll post the video below of the Elka Synthex from the Analog Lab in NY. In my humble opinion, any DCO synth that can sound like this deserves a second lease on life. C'mon, Uli, you know you want to be the one to do it.

A semi-modular DM12 that doubles as a Eurorack case.
Assignable CV and Audio ins and outs
DSP FX and ASIO compatibility
14-bit MIDI controls parameter recording
live sample looping.
Make Eurorack more performance friendly

Unfortunately this is simplification of very complicated multidimentional curve. If price were only factor there would never be premium items. Eg If Behringer release Jupiter 8 clone with authentic sound and modern features for $2k they would have big sales and may make more money than with DM12.

Yeah! I was down at Switched On one day when they happened to have two Elka Synthexi on the floor, hooked up together. Sounded pretty dang impressive.

Surely that would fit into one of those 20 Behringer design slots....

I support many of the previous comments which suggest digital-analog hybrid. It could be something like a bastard son of Blofeld and JD-XA. Polyphonic synthesizer with digital oscillators capable of sample processing. So, preferably

- 8 voice architecture, preferably multitimbral
- 2 versatile DCO:s with variable waveforms
- 2 digital oscillators capable of playing wavetables as well as sapmples and doing granular synthesis.
- Analog multimode filter
- Modulation matrix
- Interface similar to DeepMind 12. More knobs than in a Blofeld, less than in JD-XA
- All sorts of cross-modulation and FM possibilies.
- Effects such as in Deep Mind.
- Sequencer capable of sequencing also exterenal gear.

We just received the first batch of our 3340 VCO chip.

It is a 100% exact replica of the Curtis CEM3340 which even includes the 40 year old, 8 micron manufacturing process. It was a difficult and expensive undertaking but we are very pleased with the result as this VCO is considered one of the best sounding oscillators.

We are continuing to invest in reviving other legacy Curtis and SSM semiconductors which will allow us to bring back classic synths - all in the most authentic way. We have also reissued the 3320 filter chip which should be arriving in a few months.
