Behringer Intros Hot Pink DFAM Knockoff, The ‘Edge’


A pink percussive partner for Crave


Behringer has introduced what appears to be a close knockoff of the Moog DFAM, with the Edge semi-modular percussion synth. Already being likened by many to the Moog DFAM – which also happens to be a semi-modular percussion synth – this has a striking pink chassis, and promises a sound “as bold as its looks”.



This is generated by dual VCOs with pulse and triangle waves, oscillator sync, and FM. There’s also a dual 8-step sequencer, 15×10 patch matrix, and “comprehensive” MIDI implementation.


Behringer says that the Edge offers comprehensive MIDI implementation. They haven’t released specs for the Edge yet, but based on the interface, it looks like MIDI support is limited to receiving MIDI clock, vs offering MIDI control of drum voice parameters or sequencing of pitch and velocity.


Edge is designed as a sidekick for Behringer’s Crave synth, from which it takes plenty of design cues.


The Behringer Edge is priced at $219. Details on availability are to be announced.
