Hall of fame
What do Jean Michel-Jarre, Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson all have in common? The answer is simple. They’re all users of the legendary CAT synthesizer. The latest edition of Behringer’s synth range ensures that you (yes, you) can now join the league of legends, at a price that won’t break the bank.
Behringer have gone to extreme measures in ensuring that CAT remains faithful to its predecessor. Offering authentic, replication of analog circuitry, VCO, VCF and VCA. This enables you to create the original sounds that defined the electronic genre.
The synthesizer is fully cable of creating inspiring, incredible, innovative, sounds that will make you a legend in your own right!
It’s no secret that Behringer are just like you, total gear-heads. They understand your audio wants and needs. This is reflected in The CAT's 47 controls. These are all laid out for you in a highly intuitive manner. Thanks to this you’ll find yourself spending more time playing music and less reading manuals. Making music has never felt so good.
Fan of MIDI? No problem. Behringer have you covered. The CAT is capable of being paired with any keyboard controller. This enables the synthesizer to seamlessly integrate into your set up and workflow with minimal effort required.
Versatile signal generator
If you desire more character to your signal flow, employ the CAT-style Transient Generator. This will provide you with detailed voltage transient, every time a key is pressed. You'll also be able to shape your signal with ease through the inclusion of attack, decay, sustain and release.
The synthesizer's possibilities extend beyond its sleek, physical appearance. You'll be able to cater to the most complex of setups. If you wish to connect to external synths all you need to do is use the external gate, ADSR, AR or keyboard outputs. Behringer provides stability over it's 1970's and 80's predecessors via the 16 note poly chain function. Find yourself being able to combine multiple synthesizers for up to 16 voice polyphony.
Powerful analog sounds
The CAT styled synthesizer is designed to provide you with big fat tones commonly associated with renowned prog rock, new wave and synth pop records. At the very heart of the synthesizer is two VCOs. The Duophonic / Paraphonic nature of the CAT allows you to control both oscillators independent of each other. This ensures great versatility.
Each VCO comes equipped with it's own waveform sliders. This is great for providing you with total control over the mix of sub octave, saw tooth, triangle and square waveforms to create unique tones that'll make you stand out from the crowd.
Risk free warranty
CAT also comes with a three year, extended, warranty. In the highly unlikely event that anything breaks, send it off and Behringer will fix it for you, totally free of charge.
