Behringer VC340, Roland VP-330 Synth Clone, Video Demo

The Roland VP-330 vocoder and string machine clone revealed in early January by Behringer has a name and a distinctive look and sound as the Behringer VC340. Watch and listen to it in this video.

Firechild has released a video on his YouTube channel based on the upcoming Behringer VC340 analog synth.

Behringer VC340 is a clone of the legendary Roland VP-330 Vocoder, Choir and String machine from the late 70s. This VC340 unit is a prototype but fully functional and the sound is to die for! Composed and produced by

There's no pricing or availability info released from Behringer just yet. But, if you consider the Behringer D retails for around $300 and the Neutron, shipping in April, is just shy of the $300 mark... then we're hoping for another no-brainer deal for this one too.

Here's some close-up shots from the video, showing the controls on the Behringer VC-340. (Click the pic to enlarge):

I wonder what the price will be. It's the same size as the Deepmind 6 though it isn't as feature-rich as that synth. But it's quite a bit bigger than the D and Neutron plus it has keys. I hope it's not over $500. Uli has said the price of the Deepmind 12 and D were low because the demand and hype was there... Would a Vocoder have the same hype from the public and the same expectations from Behringer? I can't imagine it would. Either way, I can't wait to get my hands on one!
