Behringer UB-1 Synthesizer

   (0 reviews)

Uli Behringer, the company’s founder, was committed to music and technology from a very early age, and had constructed a synthesizer (the UB-1) by the age of 16.

Uli Behringer's describes the UB-1

When I was a young kid, I built an electric piano/synthesizer called the UB1 (picture below). The synth had two analog oscillators and a filter that was so unstable that at times it acted as an oscillator - and this was not by design.

The keyboard and the massive toggle switches on the right side came out of an EKO organ that didn't survive the impact of my screwdriver.

The UB1 was nothing great by today's standards but I believe it is this very keyboard that sparked off my passion for music and electronics and later got me into this wonderful industry.

Unfortunately the UB1 got lost during a factory move and for the past 40 years I always wanted to build a synthesizer again.
