The Behringer Neutron is a rack-mountable analog synthesiser, featuring a semi-modular design and pure analog signal path. Its default routings mean that it is always performance-ready, with no need for patching.
At the heart of the Neutron are dual 3340 analog oscillators equipped with waveform control, which transitions smoothly between 5 shapes (tone mod, pulse, sawtooth, triangle and sine), plus individual pulse width/tone modulation, producing great versatility in sound design. The Neutron can be used in Paraphonic mode, which gives you independent control over each oscillator - this feature is excellent for live performances as it deepens your command over the synth, enabling quick dynamic changes.
Also included is self-oscillating, multi-mode VCF which lets you use the filters to shape your sound, while the two analog ADSR generators allow modulation of the VCF and VCA for even more fine-tuning options.
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.
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). NEUTRONs 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 Eurorack, 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!
