Behringer baut Solina String-Machine mit eingebautem Small Stone Phaser? – (TD/Jarre)

Behringer Solina-String-EnsembleBehringer Solina-String-Ensemble

Behringer kündigt nach dem CS80 Bild noch nichts offiziell an. Dieses Bild geisterte auf Gearslutz herum und wurde von Herrn Behringer persönlich kommentiert

Inzwischen gibt es eher Ankündigungen als konkret lieferbare Geräte. Und in diesem Falle sagt Herr Behringer sinngemäß, dass es weder ein Release-Datum noch einen Preis gäbe. Behringer würden jedoch eine solche Bauform und Optik wählen, in der die komplette analoge Elektronik für die Streicher-Maschine aus Italien. Was natürlich ein echt tolles Bonbon oben drauf darstellt ist der bereits eingebaute Small Stone Phaser, der Jean-Michel Jarres Oxygene Album extrem typisch machte. Allerdings nutzte er eine Eminent Orgel. Trotzdem ist der Sound in dem Package dann hochattraktiv.

Die Firma Behringer bittet mit diesem Entwurf die Community um Feedback und testet damit die Möglichkeiten auf dem Markt und das Interesse. Ähnlich könnte das auch mit anderen Bildern sein, wie das des Yamaha CS80 und des Jupiter 8, welche beide noch weit weg von Hinweisen sind, dass diese als Clone jemals auf den Markt kommen sollen. Hier hat man sich zumindest bereits Gedanken gemacht und das Rendering gezeigt. String-Machines sind heute sehr speziell und ein Phänomen der Siebziger Jahre. Sie waren, anders als die meisten Synthesizer jener Zeit, polyphon spielbar und per Frequenzteiler auch vollpolyphon. Die Technik hat auch Korg in ihrer PS-Serie verwendet. Dort sind es 12 Oszillatoren, die jeweils für die anderen Oktaven verwendet werden.

Aber die wichtige Frage ist, ob das Gerät kommt oder nicht. Willst du so ein Gerät besitzen? Der Preis wäre mit 299€ sicher realistisch. Der Aufwand ohne Tastatur und mit MIDI/USB wäre vergleichsweise überschaubar.
