Here's The 1st Proper Video Overview Of The Behringer K-2 We've Been Waiting For
Rounik Sethi on Wed, September 11th 1 comments
The K-2 is an analog and semi-modular synthesizer with Dual VCOs, ring modulator, external signal processor, 16-voice polychain, in eurorack format. Now we can properly listen to what it's capable of.

The Korg MS-20 clone, the Behringer K-2, was announced by the German music instrument and accessory company last month in what came as a surprise to the synth community. Although it's not been available to pre-order from a select few European retailers for some days, there was one element of the release that was lacking. No video demo.

That's changed today as Behringer have released their own first-look (and listen) for the K-2:

I think you'll likely agree after watching this that Behringer's K-2 is another synthesizer that not only looks great but sounds impressive too.

  • Analog synthesizer with dual VCO design
  • Reproduction of original “MS-20” circuitry with matched transistors and JFETs
  • Analog signal path based on authentic VCO, VCF and VCA designs
  • Semi-modular architecture with default routings requires no patching for immediate performance
  • 4 variable oscillator shapes with variable pulse widths and ring modulation for ultimate sounds
  •  First-generation filter design (high pass/low pass with peak/resonance)
  • Dedicated and fully analog triangle/square wave LFO
  • 2 analog Envelope Generators for modulation of VCF and VCA
  • 16-voice Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 16 voice polyphony
  • Complete Eurorack solution – main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack case
  • 36 controls give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters
  • External audio input for processing external sound sources
  • Comprehensive USB/MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection
  • 3-Year Warranty Program

    But are the connections Hz/octave like the original or the more compatible V/Oct?
