Behringer TD-3 is a new analog bassline Synthesizer that is an authentic reproduction of the Roland TB-303 with several new features according to Gearslutz

One day before the official introduction of the new TB-303 clone by Behringer, there is a leak. According to Gearslutz, the device will be called TD-3 and be fully analog. The internals are an authentic reproduction of the original circuitry with matched transistors. Interestingly, the Behringer developers added a distortion circuitry in the TD-3 modeled after the DS-1 that adds spice and edge to your sounds.

It features also full MIDI & USB implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection. Plus, it includes a little patchbay with different inputs (filter, sync) and outputs (cv out, gate out and phones). Also interesting: it is the first Behringer Synthesizer from the new Italian developers. According to Gearslutz, the price will be 149€ but let see what the final price will be.

In a new video, Behringer teases a new Synthesizer that is very good at acid grooves and that is probably an analog TB-303 clone.

Already during NAMM, there were first rumors about a Behringer TB-303 Clone. Now this seems to come. In a new video, Behringer teases a synthesizer with a grinning smiley (typically 303) and classic acid grooves.

Next, Behringer gives us a mathematical task: 3 + 3 + 2. 3 x 3 +. 2 If one adds this together, one arrives on the 8/11 or the Friday 8 November 2019 where probably the TB-303 clone becomes official. What we know now is certain, a Behringer TB-303 clone will come, I’m sure.

NAMM 2019 Rumours

As most of you already know, Behringer will not be exhibiting at the NAMM 2019 but they are organizing a pre-NAMM event in LA. They will present here various new products of the Music Tribe group (Behringer, TC Electronic, Bugera…). In the Synthesizer section you can play with the Odyssey, MS-101, VP-330 or also with the RD-808 drum machine but they will also introduce a new synth.

Which synth this is, betrays probably a Facebook video of today. So you can see in the background in addition to the RD-909 the secret new synth, which may be an analog clone of the TB-303. It would make sense because they have already cloned the well-known Roland Products TR-808, TR-909 and SH-101. An analog clone would fit in this cloned synth range and would be again a best-seller! Also, we need more Acid Synths!

These are just observations and speculations. Whether it is true, we will see next week. You can watch the video on the Behringer Facebook page.

Hello fellow Tribers! I am excited to invite you all to our Pre-NAMM show 2019 event.I look forward to seeing you all there!

  1. It’s nice of Roland to have straight up announced they were never going to do this or the analog Jupiter, it removes any lingering guilt I’d feel over this.
