Behringer intros 2-XM, Oberheim 2 Voice copy



Behringer has introduced the 2-XM, an inexpensive, unofficial Euro-format copy of the classic Oberheim Two-Voice synthesizer.


Like the original, the 2-XM features two Synthesizer Expander Modules, each an all-in-one synth voice. But it drops the original’s step sequencer, replacing it with MIDI and CV/Gate control.




  • Reproduces SEM 2-Voice circuitry from the ‘70s
  • Analog signal path based with VCO, VCF and VCA
  • 2 independent voices for polyphonic, split or 4-oscillator unison sounds
  • 2 variable oscillator shapes, with adjustable pulse width for inspiring sounds
  • Oscillator sync
  • 2 multi-mode filters, with low-pass, high-pass, band-pass and notch modes
  • 2 analog LFOs with triangle and square waveforms
  • 4 analog envelope generators for extensive control of filters and amplifiers
  • Noise generator dramatically expands waveform generation
  • Extensive modulation capabilities, including internal and external sources
  • 2-channel mixer section featuring level and pan controls for intense stereo sounds
  • Portamento function applicable to both voices for pitch gliding effects
  • 2 external audio inputs for processing external sound sources
  • Dedicated audio outputs plus a combined stereo output
  • CV and GATE In/Outs for patching and integrating with other modular gear
  • 16-voice Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 32 voice polyphony
  • Eurorack compatible – main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack case
  • 64 controls to give you direct and real-time access to important parameters
  • MIDI and USB implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection


Behringer says that the 2-XM will be priced at $299, with availability dependent on the availability of needed semiconductor chips
