During the Superbooth 2018, Behringer presented the MS-101, an analog clone of the Roland SH-101 Synthesizer. Now there are news just before Christmas.

The MS-101 goes into production in January. The first 50 units are already in pre-production and if everything works, they will start in January the full production.

What Uli Behringer Writes On Gearslutz

Here is a quick update. We’re now in pre-production with the MS-101. It took longer than we anticipated as we’re running our factory at near maximum capacity. Pre-production means we’re now producing around 50 units to ensure everything is in order. Provided we don’t find any issues, mass production will then commence a month later, which would be January. Thanks for your patience. Uli
