In their latest video, Behringer showcase the new all-analog, Pro-1, an emulation and improvement on the original 1981 Sequential Circuits Pro One.
Once we get past a quick sound demo (where all sounds are created using the Behringer Pro-1) and a short history lesson including name checking some of the artists that used the original like Depeche Mode, Vince Clark, New Order, The Prodigy, we're given a proper full-on tour of the new Pro-1.
If you want to dive straight into the sound demos of the Pro-1, then jump to 1:34, plug in headphones / turn on your studio monitors, sit back and enjoy. This synth can sound beautiful, gnarly, gritty, good enough to eat and most everything in between. This is probably the best video demo of the Pro-1 if you're at all interested in discovering what kinds of sounds this synthesizer is capable of.
