Uli Behringer has posted some information on a Minimoog Model D type synthesizer at Gearslutz. According to the specifications mentioned, this would be an analog synthesizer with 3 VCOs, a 24dB Ladder filter, LFO, 16-voice poly chain and Eurorack format.

Behringer D synth

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.

Behringer “D” synth features

  • Analog synthesizer with triple VCO design.
  • Reproduction of original “D Type” with matched transistors and JFETs.
  • 0.1% Thin Film resistors and Polyphenyline Sulphide capacitors for frequency stability.
  • Analog signal path based on authentic VCO, VCF and VCA designs.
  • 5 variable oscillator shapes with pulse width variation.
  • Classic 24 dB ladder filter with resonance.
  • Fully analog triangle/square wave LFO.
  • Switchable low/high pass filter mode.
  • 16-voice Midi Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 16-voice polyphony.
  • Overdrive circuit.
  • Noise generator.
  • Complete Eurorack solution – main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack case.
  • 46 controls for real-time access of all important parameters.
  • External audio input for processing external sound sources.
  • Low and high level outputs.
  • Comprehensive MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection.
  • 3-Year Warranty Program.

This all should come at a targeted retail price of around $400 USD.
