Behringer Model D

I’ve had this deep desire lately to get my hands on a small, inexpensive synthesizer module. During my research, I encountered the Behringer Model D, a clone of the Moog Model D synthesizer. I played with the Behringer recently at a local music shop and had a lot of fun making weird new sounds.

I haven’t felt much like playing around the same way with a software instrument or plugin. Of course, if I remapped some things on one of my MIDI controllers, that would be much easier than it is now. I have this desire to make beginner-level sounds for a while, away from my computer. I’m really enjoying the sense of play that knobs and dials instills.

I’ve been sick most of this week, so I went down to the music shop this afternoon to see if they had this machine in stock. Since it was still on sale for the holidays, I took the plunge and toted the little Behringer home. It took a few seconds to plug it in and power it up. Then, four hours were gone.

I still have no idea what I’m doing when I mess around with this instrument. It’s incredibly fun, though. I’m looking forward to what I’ll be able to do when I know how to use it well.
