Behringer: uno Tsunami del Vintage

Certo che ormai la Behringer è diventata un vero Tsunami del Vintage. Se fino a qualche mese fa, qualche scettico credeva che la casa volesse solo “provocare” il mercato, ora avrà di che rivedere le proprie posizioni.

Le novità che Behringer probabilmente presenterà in pompa magna al prossimo NAMM saranno:

6 sintetizzatori e 4+1 Drum-Machine che si rifanno a cloni circuitali del passato, ovvero ad un progetto proprietario con anima vintage; una Scheda Audio con tanto di Analog & Digital FX interno. Di seguito, le caratteristiche principali (in inglese) di ogni macchina con, tra parentesi laddove necessario, i modelli a cui si “ispirano”. Le notizie non sono ancora corredate da immagini o foto. Appena disponibili, avremo cura di aggiungerle.
