Behringer’s Oberheim Two-Voice Knockoff is Now Ready for Production

Behringer today teased that the 2-XM, a Euro format knockoff of the classic Oberheim Two Voice synthesizer, is now ready for production.

The company introduced the 2-XM in 2022 and, at the time, suggested that they thought that they could manufacture it with a $299 retail price.

The original Oberheim Two Voice keyboard synthesizer was introduced in 1975. It is a duophonic synthesizer, made up of two independent modular synth voices, and features a built-in 8-stage sequencer. Tom Oberheim released a limited-edition reissue of the original Two Voice in 2021, but demand was so high that it sold out in a day.

Like the original, the Behringer 2-XM offers two Synthesizer Expander Modules (SEM) – complete modular synth voices – along with an I/O and control section. It shrinks the design down to Eurorack format, though, and dispenses with the step sequencer.

Behringer is not saying anything about pricing or a release date for the 2-XM at this time.
