Here's The First Video Review Of Behringer D Minimoog Clone

Sweetwater have just released a 32 minute video review of the Minimoog synth clone, Behringer D. Enough said. Sit back, watch and then decide whether this synth is for you or not.  

It was only a matter of time before the first big review of the now infamous Minimoog clone from Behringer got its own in-depth review. And this one comes to us in the form of a 30 minute video from Sweetwater. There's plenty of demos during the review to listen to. So sit back get comfortable with your headphones / in front of your studio monitors and enjoy.

OR... if you want to watch a video comparison between the Behringer D and a real Moog Minimoog, jump to here.

Here's what Sweetwater say about their video review:

"It's all there. Sweetwater's Daniel Fisher demonstrates the three punchy oscillators, classic 24dB/octave voltage-controlled filter with resonance, envelopes, LFO, portamento, and more. All instantly familiar — only smaller. The Behringer D is a Eurorack-sized reincarnation of the legendary analog monosynth that started it all. From fat pulsing basses to searing leads to celestial pads: the Behringer D puts a world of musical expression under your fingertips."
