Behringer UB-Xa Synthesizer ‘Now Completed’, moving for Production (Sneak Preview}


Bernd Bruening, aka The Synth King, shared this sneak preview of the upcoming Behringer UB-Xa, a knockoff of the classic Oberheim OB-Xa.


What Bruening say about his audio demo:

“This video showcases a complete song I’ve composed and produced with sounds exclusively from the Behringer UB-Xa (except drums).

The opening bass line was made with the built in step sequencer running in sync to the DAW. I’ve used a single reverb and two delay plugins for this track. There is no EQing or dynamic processing involved. All sounds were recorded directly into the audio interface.”

While they have not announced a released date, Behringer says that the UB-Xa, originally introduced in 2018, is moving into production:

“The UB-Xa is one of our most complex products we have ever designed in our 35 years of history. 15 engineers worked over 4 years, delivering 8 hardware revisions and countless firmware upgrades, while co-innovating with 20 beta testers who all own the original OB-Xa synth. Our objective was to spend as much time and resources it takes and only release it when it is perfect.

The UB-Xa is now completed and we’re ramping up for production.”


Details on pricing and availability are still to be announced, but Behringer has previously said that they are targeting a $1,500 price for the UB-Xa.
