In a Facebook post last week, Behringer announced it was shipping 1,000 units of both the Crave and Pro-1 synthesisers to its European retailer, Thomann. Now, you can preorder the synthesisers to be delivered within the next few weeks.
The Crave is a compact, analogue semi-modular synth that boasts a 32-step sequencer and arpeggiator, along with other features that are designed to pay homage to the Prophet 5 – a synth that was responsible for many of the sounds from the 1980’s and 90’s. Behringer has paid close attention to the original analogue circuitry, VCO, VCF and VCA designs to reproduce the sound of the Prophet 5.
Also featured in the Crave is a filter based on the Classic Moog 24dB ladder filter, which can be set to Lo or Hi-pass. Crave’s oscillator is said by Behringer to be “super-rich”, with pulse and sawtooth wave outputs, and a noise generator to expand waveform generating. Crave costs £131 and will ship within 1-2 weeks, according to the Thomann website.
Behringer’s Pro-1 is an analogue, dual VCO synthesiser based on authentic designs from the Sequential Circuits Pro-One, which was used notably by artists like Depeche Mode, New Order, The Prodigy and Prince. Behringer’s Pro-1 features three simultaneous oscillator shapes, a 4-pole filter design and a modulation matrix for two modulation busses.
The synth has a 64-note sequencer etc, and an arpeggiator which offers three patterns. The Pro-1 is also Eurorack ready, with an audio input for external sound sources, MIDI In/Thru and USB-MIDI. The Pro-1 costs £289 and also ships within 1-2 weeks.
