Behringer VCS 3 Synthesizer Update


Behringer has shared an update on their upcoming Synthi VCS 3 copy, which was originally announced six years ago when the company announced plans to create a line of vintage synth knockoffs, including the Roland SH-101, Korg MS-20, ARP 2600 and Wasp.

In addition to these images, they gave this status update on the Behringer VCS 3:

“In our previous update, we shared our mechanical challenges with the pin matrix, which have now been resolved. We’re very pleased to report that it has passed a stringent 100,000 lifecycle test.

We’re now shipping units to our beta testers for final testing and comparison with the original synthesizer. Once passed, we will start manufacturing.

We know this synth has taken much longer than we thought, but we’re sure the wait is worth it.”

The Behringer VCS 3 is designed to be an inexpensive, unofficial copy of the original EMS Synthi VCS3. The original is still in production, but with boutique prices and limited availability.

Like its other vintage synth copies, Behringer has added basic MIDI control, so you can play the synth using standard control keyboards.

Features (Preliminary):

  • Analog synthesizer with triple VCO design
  • Reproduction of original “VCS3” circuitry
  • Analog signal path with VCO, VCF and VCA
  • VCOs featuring multi-turn knobs for precise frequency control
