Behringer Neutron Semi-Modular Synthesizer

    Description
    The Behringer Neutron: a paraphonic analog and semi-modular synthesizer with dual 3340 VCOs, multi-mode VCF, 2 ADSRs, BBD delay and overdrive circuit in a Euro rack format. An updated incarnation of its predecessors with all the original features and then some, the BEHRINGER NEUTRON lets you conjure up virtually any monophonic sound imaginable with incredible finesse and ease.

    The pure analog signal path is based on authentic VCO, VCF, VCA and state variable filter designs in conjunction, with a flexible, multi-wave LFO and classic Bucket Brigade Delay (BBD). NEUTRON’s Paraphonic mode allows both 3340 analog oscillators to be independently controlled for an expanded palette of tonal options. And when it comes to protection and convenience, the NEUTRON can be mounted in a standard Euro rack, making it ideal for the studio and/or the road.

    Owning a NEUTRON is like having your own personal time machine, enabling you to freely embrace the past – or shape the future! Designed around an intuitively-linear workflow, NEUTRON benefits greatly from its semi-modular design, which requires no patching for immediate performance. Just put your NEUTRON into self-oscillation, connect your favorite keyboard or computer via MIDI over DIN or USB – and start exploring the world of analog music synthesis right out-of-the-box.

    NEUTRON

    The 1970s and ’80s spawned the first wave of portable analog synthesizers, and while quickly adopted by a bevy of renowned musical artists including Jan Hammer, Chick Corea, Rick Wakeman, Jean-Michel Jarre, Isao Tomita and Keith Emerson to name a few, they were somewhat temperamental and very expensive.

    True to the Classics

    Great care has been taken in designing the NEUTRON to ensure it is true to the circuitry of the classic synthesizers that made musical history. This highly-focused attention to detail is what gives the NEUTRON its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability, which covers everything from super-fat bass and lead tones, stunning effects, progressive organ sounds – and all the way out to the otherworldly sounds of your imagination.

    Big, Fat Tones

    The inspired synthesizer tracks laid down in the 1970s and ’80s are etched in the annals of progressive rock, wave and synth-pop music forever, making them truly classic in every sense of the word. NEUTRON’s pure analog signal path with legendary VCO, VCF and VCA circuits, lets you recreate all of that magic – or design incredibly fat and original sounds that will make you a legend in your own right!

    VCO Double Play

    NEUTRON’s highly-flexible dual Voltage Controlled Oscillators (VCOs) provide an incredible range using 5 unique waveforms for sculpting the perfect sound. Oscillators 1 and 2 options include: Tone Mod; Square; Sawtooth; Triangular or Sine; which can be adjusted across an extremely-wide, 3-octave range (32', 16', 8'). This amazing flexibility gives you all the tools to be your creative best.

    Behringer Neutron Semi-Modular Synthesizer more details by Pete and Rob from Inside R&D:

    + l think the main kind of driving force was we wanted to do something affordable semi modular a lot of interesting semi modular.

    + We wanted to kind of get a dabble in that in that market and find something that people could use.

    + But yet it's a really powerful little synth that it's obviously the two oscillators the 3340 sound fantastic.

    + As a starting point build up their system, yeah and often you find with Semi, modular gear that that a lot of the inputs on there that you want some of the things in the mob matrix aren't quite right.

    + We've got a unique custom filter. It's a two pole, but it's multimode and the resin that sounds great and also the overdrive and delay gives it.

    + You know you very enough of a pallet there to get a wide range of sounds and cleave. It's a filthy. It's morphable LFO shaped oscillator shapes.
