Well if you have another half most probably :lol:

"YOU SPENT HOW MUCH!?!? ON THAT PIDDLY THING! AND YOU WANT MORE?!?!?"

I have more Behringer modules being delivered today, and tomorrow, it’s got to the point now where I need yet another case, which will take me up to 21U of 84HP.
My partner doesn’t really mind, we joke about it, but maybe I tell the odd white lie about what’s inside boxes.
But musically, it’s great, it’s all working out well, it’s a much more successful incarnation than my previous excursion into modular, I’m more experienced now, regarding the realities of what certain modules can do for me, and the more the merrier, for the music I’m making now, it’s like having my own Amazonian rain forest in a box, or a humongous refinery or steel plant, regarding sounds that I make with it, beauty and the beast, a great contrast.

That would be an ecumenical matter.

I've noticed that none of the american stores have the RD-9 in stock and don't seem to have any idea when it will come in (only estimate I've seen is actually for next January, from the UK based gear4music). Seems like the claim that it was shipping was premature, anyone have any insight as to the cause of the delay? I'm wondering if it's more a lack of shipping availability or if it's materials/chip production related.

I've been hemming and hawing over a Modal Skulpt SE but didn't want to spend the money if the RD-9 finally comes into stock and then sells out immediately. Sweetwater will set one aside for me but they say they have no idea what the cause of the delay is and can't give any timeframe.

I'd ask yourself what it is you actually want do to with whatever you end up buying.

If only a 909 will do then definitely fill your boots, pre-order one and wait for it. I've done exactly that for a number of synths I know I wanted over the years.

If there are other solutions that could meet the requirement and are more immediately obtainable then I'd go with them in a heartbeat.

When all is said and done if you have a need (and the budget) then fill it with the first acceptable offering you encounter that can meet the requirements.

The driver is the musical need, not a particular vendor.

Gearlust, on the other hand, is a particularly personal perspective and a quest with which no external counsel can assist with in any meaningful sense :)

It looks as if Auratone has successfully held off an attempt by Behringer to take ownership of their trademark in the US:

Sigh. Everything I learn about Behringer just fills me with more disdain for them.

That's a pleasing turn-up. :clap:

That would rather be the point. :D

Sweetwater is the exclusive vendor in the US and they aren't even accepting pre-orders at this point (keeping customers on an unofficial list, dropping an email now and then with updates even if there's no news). I'd just noticed that the gear4music UK site seemed to have reviews from buyers, although they may have been beta testers, and wondered if there was any more info out there.

I went ahead and ordered the Skulpt SE for the time being, been meaning to pick one up. Great sounding little thing.

As Behringer's official rep here at SOS can you clarify that? :D

Roland have had more than long enough to satisfy the demand for this one, yet have chosen to not only ignore it, but even belittle the idea as 'chasing ghosts'.

This is one I can definitely get behind.

And I though it would be wrong of me not to post this but Behringer seem to be on a roll... Looks like Dave's got some competition ;)

It appears to be a 16 voice Prophet 5 clone, guess it will be a fair bit cheaper than even the 5 voice DSI/Sequential Rev 4., wonder which revision it will clone or if it will be switchable?

OK, I’m going to be severely challenged in the smuggling department soon, a VCS3, now this Prophet, my partner keeps wondering why my friend is loaning me so many keyboards.
My modular, thanks to Behringer, is growing like our garden in summer, it’s getting difficult passing modules off as "been in storage" where? she keeps saying.

But it's not an original, and you have told us many times that you won't buy anything but the original of so much gear - why is this one different? (Let's save you some money) ;)
