Updated: NAMM show is back !

Update: Behringer introduces the MS-5: which seems to be a faithful recreation of the 1976 Roland SH-5. Thought by many to be one of the finest instruments in Roland’s SH series, the SH-5 is an analogue monophonic synthesizer with plenty to offer. Two analogue oscillators, two filters, two LFOs, white and pink noise generators and an excellent ring modulator provide ample opportunity for sonic manipulation.

However, it’s the SH-5’s versatile signal path, which enables users to mix five audio sources individually through the onboard mixer and route external audio through the filters and ring mod, that helps it stand out. Behringer’s emulation is likely to replicate these features, with the addition of a few modern touches.

The legend is back. The OP-1 Field is essentially an expanded version of the original OP-1 synth. Now, not only is it back in stock and available to buy, but it’s even better, too.

Like its predecessor, this is a compact digital instrument that spans the realms of synth, sampler, multitrack recorder, effect unit and controller – as well as including an FM radio. But, given that the first unit appeared way back in 2011, it was about time for a follow up.

Updated: Melbourne Instruments Nina: a 12 Voice Analog Polysynth with Motorized Control. At this moment there is not much news about this company and this synth, but video’s are showing up.
