1- Model D by Behringer.                 

Ii is a perfect clone of the Moog Minimoog, sounds fat, in comparison with the original Moog, this is small and it does not have a keyboard, but in exchange it had a MIDI connector and it is more stable than the vintage MiniMoogs. Sounds precise, hard, and at a great price. And we can assure it is a Minimoog but with another Brand like Behringer. Let’s listen a demo of the Model D of Behringer :

2- Behringer 2600 Semi Modular Analog synthesizer.

The Behringer 2600 Semi Modular is a clone of the monster but versatile ARP 2600. Of course, Behringer did not also just a copy of the original, it does a welcome modernization in his frontal panel and leds sliders that it feels super nice and new. The sound….bah…we don’t need to compare, maybe the reverb, that in this case is digital in opposite to the original that was a spring reverb, but other than that Behringer made a total winner on this clone, and again, at a great price. Let’s have a listen:

4- Behringer model TD 3-SR

The clone of a classic, an instrument that creates a style of music, the Acid (House/Techno/Electro). Planned by Roland to be just a bass synthesizer to accompany another instruments, it turns out that the 303 finished making new styles of music, it was so beyond to make realistic sound bass that the technolovers take the instrument and they flip around it, making tons of music based on the Roland 303 sounds. A special sequenciator also make this possible and an easy recognizable filter resonance and cutoff that gives to the 303 his very original and limited character. Let’s listen:
