Uli Behringer reveals the latest design and features of their upcoming clone of he iconic Moog Minimoog Model D analog synthesizer. It looks great. Features look good. The price? Simply stunning!

We didn't expect such a quick turntaround from Behringer since last week's announcement they were looking to clone the iconic MiniMoog Model D Synth. But time waits for no man in synth land it seems.

Today Uli Behringer revealed the first draft of their version of the Minimoog Model D on Gearslutz. Here's all we know right now. And, the incredible price of $400 is what they are quoting. If I may say so myself, this looks really, really nice and if they can manufacture these at that price point will be a big, big seller!

This is a first draft of our "D" Synth with a proposed feature set below. 

"Our goal is to design in a Poly Chain feature that allows combining up to 16 synths through MIDI. Depending on the feedback we will then decide if we move further and build a first prototype. Our targeted retail price is around US$ 400.

    It looks stunning (and well built)! The price is stunning! And I bet it sounds really good (and in tune - unlike my old Moog Prodigy - open the windows, and it would go out of tune).
