Please SEE: Now that the 2600 is shipping from our factory, how many of you would be interested in a dedicated keyboard similar to the ARP2600 keyboard below? Or would you be happy to connect it to a normal MIDI controller?
Love to have your opinion:-)

I will be buying a 2600 in Q1-2021. It's a delayed purchase for me due to allocating "having fun" funds, plus in recent weeks I just added Korg Minilogue XD, Behringer Neutron and Arturia Keystep Pro to my studio. So, I need to make the most of those before adding further... but my Keystep Pro told me this morning that it's in love with the 2600 and so I have to listen and take action.

Plus - no doubt there will be a world drought on 2600's. The wait could be long. And... I have got my eye on ASM Hydrasynth and Super 6 and MatrixBrute and Summit. Far too many cool toys arriving all at once.
300+ original grooving Techno, Tech-House, House, Drum-and-Bass tracks on SoundCloud.
Produced in Reason 11 and Studio One 5 (WIndows).

The pace of great releases is astounding. I'd rather have the Korg version, but I won't get either though. Like danc above, too many cool toys. Just got the Modal Argon 8M and am waiting for the Microfreak. I've got my hands full for the next year.

PS - I do agree with the led complaint I've seen other places but don't think that would push me away if I wanted the Beri 2600.

Nice. It's a tempting prospect.

Probably beats a Mini Moog for phatness, but the tiny faders and no keyboard puts it behind a MS-20 IMO, the point of an analog in this day and age is live performance and access to knobs while playing, and just record audio bits into the DAW.

Sure you can sequence stuff and then work the sliders and record the audio, but that will be more of an electronica performance and less of funking around. Still have a place though... Price is nice too, compared to overpriced old stuff.

Beautiful. This and the Behringer Mono/Poly to go with my MS-1 And Nava 909 that's coming would be amazing. Oh and a TD-3 and Prophet 10. Laughing.

From the Comments:
His "analysis of the BASS" of the KArp is OFF. ...Keyboard Tracking... :redface:

Also, no sound card. Just room recording.
But, the Behr 2600 sounds Great to me!

I have seen some german clones on ebay for less than 1000 that looks and sounds awesome, with top class capacitors, keyboard included.
If this thing will cost less than 1000 I'll have a very hard time not going full throttle.
Does anyone knows if there will be presets saving or digital normalling of sorts?

Has Behringer said what the colors of the LEDs represent? I can’t make out any pattern to them.
