:tu: :o i totally missed it was launched!
it actually looked pretty good when they announced, but im guessing if i didnt hear about how great it is, it wasnt?
shame, it was something different, that was their own idea.

would be interested in finding a user or two for comments? (not reviewers who are looking for clicks ;) )

I have already bought the DFAM so I can buy one guilt free (a DFAM with midi not in my Eurorack case!) but I am in no hurry…let’s see how the production model sounds first….
PC + S49 MK2, Studio One, BWS, Live (+PUSH2), FL Studio, Renoise, Reason, X32 Desk, Hardware Synths (Summit, Hydrasynth, DM12, P8), A4 + RYTM, MPC Live, Poly Tracker, Eurorack, TD27 V Drums, Guitars, Basses, Amps and Pedals

Damn, wth has behringer done to your other mother... with behri, I'd mostly be worried about
cheap manufacturing processes, flimsy jack mounts and cheapy knob mounts and whatnot. That's where they cut costs apparently.

which is odd because they didn't used to do that, I have an old eurorack (just the name) mixer,
and it's built like a friggen tank.

Yawn. How about the UB-Xa? Hope to see it in my lifetime.

I have a couple of Craves and they're solid in terms of construction. Can't say the same about the Model D with its tiny plastic knobs.

Nah. I have their Odyssey and Model D. Both solid like a tank. Nothing to complain about.
Beware! The software discussed in this topic has unacceptable aliasing at -386dBTP but it can be fixed by changing the sample rate to 12Bit

I don't have a doubt that it's not as well built as, say, a Moog, but, I'm also pretty sure that Behringer stepped up their game, compared to 10-15 years ago or so.

People who are concerned about build quality should go software. :P

I hear it's mostly in the components and pcb mounting, but I can't say from 1st hand certainly. :shrug:

Behringer gets singled out for a lot of stuff, some of self-inflicted stupidity. They do have a 3 year warranty on most of their gear. On the other hand, it wasn't Behringer that was recently fined for price fixing scams. You'd have to go to Korg, Yamaha, Roland and Fender for that dubious honor.

Thomann was recently fined for price fixing scams as well. And, guess what, they still have exactly the same prices as Music Store, Session Music, Musikhaus Korn etc.

"Price fixing" itself is a scam. Of course, companies or vendors take a look at the competition in regards of their prices. Would be mega stupid to sell something for peanuts, which is expensive anywhere else.
