I'm kinda sorry I found this thing. I can't take my eyes off it...

Btw, is it me, or does everyone get the "new posts" indication on their own post?

LOL seriously :0) the other thing is that 'orange' arrow on a thread I've only looked at. if I didn't post, I don't care about it. And there's no way to make it go away. I KNOW which threads I don't care about.

I like the way that at the upper end of the keys where the transition from light to dark keys, there appears to be an extra white key in place of a black one. Really messes with my head

Or the little five note keyboard on the left. Is it a separate register altogether?

It's so kooky.

Behringer, do you want a challenge?

Behringer should make an affordable Rhodes piano.

That’s a clone people are dying for.

I wonder if Behr will make a Poly D version II with the JUNE-60 version II chorus inside?

Makes sense.. particularly as the Poly D has been selling well.
I reckon BAX have sold at least 25 Poly D synths over the last week alone.

I have the impression it already uses what is now coming out as the V2. The effect is very similar from what I can hear, and different from V1. When the V2 I ordered arrive, I'll be able to test this proposition.

That could be a really interesting A-B comparison, thanks.
The 'setting III' in particular sounds different on the V2 pedal, so would be interesting to compare that.

I would definitely be interested to check out that comparison. Have been wondering the same thing. Keep us posted!

Especially with the current silicon chip shortage.

You can buy the RD-8 at Thomann or Music Store

At Music Store
The RD-8 MKII, 31 déc 2021
The RD-9, 30 jan 2022
TD-3-MO, 31 déc 2021

With a little patience, not that far away

But no sign of the VCX3 :(

Putting the colored Synthi knobs on the VCS3 looks dumb, it should be either one or the other. Please don't make it cheap looking, hire a designer for once ! And I'll buy it in an instant.

Some of the original VCS3 models came with coloured pots.

after a good while, a new synth announcement from Behr. I wonder if this means something for the other more anticipated releases?

Did you get a chance to try this out yet? The world needs to know and hear!

Not all though, i think the Mk2 VCS's came with the Synthi coloured cliff knobs. But the early Mk1 VCS's just had the silver coloured cliff knobs. And the ten-turn frequency pots had no coloured inserts.

Here is the prototype from january, I don't think that it'll change much.

I think it looks gorgeous, and much nicer than our (not very well looked-after) VCS3 in the studio..

Speaking purely from the model that we have, it's not a well-built instrument and doesn't feel that nice to use. The pots have a scratchy edge to them and the construction feels cheap. We got ours from a college, so it's been a bit abused over the years, which doesn't help.

AFAIK The VCS3 was the cheapest synth you could buy at the time and as such many compromises were made in the construction, hence I understand the build quality was pretty poor, though I've only ever seen one on display in a case at the science museum.

B's version being better than the original, I didn't expect that turn of events…
I still think these big knobs on a smaller panel lack some elegance

It would be nice just to see it released - if it looked like crap but sounded very close to a original for under 1k i’d be pleased

The DFAM has stick pots for pitch control. It's impossible to 'tune' it without a quantizer.

Now, I don't think you'll ever get to 'tune' an Edge either, but stick pots IMHO are the worst thing since fruit cake,
