NAMM 2020 | Behringer has even more news, it's the new Behringer 2600!

By Kevin Cowley | Published 20.01.20

When will they stop? Never we hope! Behringer is releasing more synths than our bank accounts can handle, but look at this thing - it's beautiful! The Behringer 2600 is based on the ARP 2600 and promises a huge range of tweakable options.

Based on the ARP 2600, Behringer's version brings in a couple of tweaks and updates including steadier tuning and size reduction. Despite the changes, Behringer has stayed true to the original 2600 design, giving it slightly more modern technology with its choice of components.

One of the updates includes the use of an SMD design that is less sensitive to temperature change, meaning the oscillators remain in pitch better than the ARP 2600. Behringer has also added both filter versions, including the ladder filter 4012 and 4072, with each offering a different character for more scope with sound design.

Behringer seems to have spent a lot of time getting it right in terms of both the visuals and the electronics, so the 2600 is looking set to be a huge release when it finally drops. We'll be looking to see it in its full glory at Superbooth this year!
