Behringer Will Be Making A $49 Synthesizer
In this video from BEHRINGER, we listen to the company’s founder Uli Behringer provide insight into his background, aspirations for the company and DeepMind12, as well as the statement that he plans to roll out synthesizers starting at $49 (around 15:00).
We all know how expensive synthesizers are, making them inaccessible for many that wish to move away from soft synths. However, this is beginning to change, with more and more affordable synths being released that don’t dig into your pocket. The teenage engineering Pocket Operators and Korg Monotron are two of these that come to mind.
With low-priced synths, the features available are generally plain and unembellished, which can be favorable for those that just want a good sound without all the grandeur. It will be interesting what functions and capabilities BEHRINGER wishes to add for these cheaper synthesizers.
