It isn’t really about if individually we like the sound or not, it’s about choice and affordability. This is the cost of just the filter in Eurorack, it may introduce people to analog, to step sequencing, to CV...the 303 sound is obviously of interest to some people (we have had a lot of software and expensive hardware clones in the past) and may be one of the most iconic and recognisable synth/electronic music sounds out there....
Obviously this won’t be for everyone, but it’s 149 ‘list’, it will be sold cheaper...it’s amazing value and Behringer are delivering on their promise to put these musical tools in to the hands of musicians who may not of been able to afford them before...no one else was doing this (or was interested in the low margin mass produce market with analog gear). I think this is great...I’m not going to be buying a 303 myself, but I did buy their Odyssey, Neutron, Model D and DM12 and I have nothing but praise for these instruments.
Arturia are also making great value and interesting instruments (I just picked up a mikrofreek for under 200) so it can be done by others...Korg make some great lower cost stuff....it just seems to be the big dogs like Roland and Yamaha that seem uninterested in this section of the market. High end stuff (DSI moog, some Eurorack stuff etc) will I think be largely unaffected as this stuff is niche, but that middle ground once held by Roland and Yamaha must be getting impacted.
