Real talk: Model D vs Behringer D
The real question-
How does the 300.00 Behringer stack up?
Extremely well. Get the Behringer D and don’t sweat if you’ve got “the real deal”
It sounds fantastic. It’s not the “same” as a player, sure- but to the audience? They’ll never know the difference.
With the Moog Model D now out of production & the Behringer D available any day @ $300.00 loads of people are weighing in on how well the Behringer will do & weather the Model D can justify the price (and let’s get real, the price tag is REAL)
I bought mine just a month or two before the Behringer Model will hit shelves.
I could have returned it. I could get what at least seems to be damn close to the sound at a fraction of the cost. I decided not to. Why?
I can really put into works what it is to play the Moog. The large sturdy knobs, the satisfying click when you switch waveforms, the excellent keybed, the SOUND. That’s not really enough. The Model D feels, behaves, and is truely a musical instrument. It’s more than the sum of its parts.
That’s not to say I would discourage anyone from getting the Behringer-
I’m 100% thrilled that there’s such an affordable way into the magic that is a 3 oscillator Mono synth with a beautifully overdriven fliter. It’s something everyone who loves music & synths should experience.
For me a relationship was formed the 1st time I played it. It’s something truely special & more than a collection of electronics as some comparisons might suggest...but that’s just me.
Staggeringly beautiful instrument.
The only synth worth 6 stars
Possibly the best synth ever made. There are others technically better, with more options, better design, sound that rivals it. But there's simply nothing as good as an original Minimoog. It blows the reissues out of the water.
Ballsy, heavy and creamy - a pleasure to work with
I own the late version with the stable oscillator board. I wish I had used it as bass machine more often in the past as it has something very pleasant and full in its tone which is hard to get otherwise. It is more flexible than it looks. The filter is the most characterful one ever. One issue though: resonance is breaking down below about 100 Hz which is typical for Moog. If you want bassdrums use layering or take an oscillator controlled by an external envelope. Or just use the feedback trick and get huge bassy persussions. The squarewave of the oscillators sounds better than in the Model15 in my ears although the Model15 actually does it better in almost all other categories.
