Behringer officially announces that the design of the UB-Xa Synthesizer is now final but the firmware will take a little longer

In addition to a new teaser for a new synth, Behringer has also released for Superbooth 20 Home Edition an update for the long-awaited UB-Xa Synthesizer  Superbooth 20 Home Edition. According to the official FB page, the new photos show how the UB-Xa will look like. In engineering, these units are called “Tool Made Sample”. Behringers says: “in short, this is how the unit will look like”.

The layout is finished and you can see that the synth offers a 5-octave keyboard like the original Oberheim OB-Xa. A small screen on the right has been added that may show the patches.

According to Behringer, the hardware is ready, but the firmware is fully in development. So you have to wait for the UB-Xa but hopefully not too long.

Official Statement

We’re proud to show you another big milestone in the development of the UB-Xa since we have just assembled what we call the “Tool Made Sample”.
The TMS milestone means that the design and all mechanical parts are all tooled and final – in short this is how the unit will look like. As you will notice, lots of changes and improvements have been made since the first prototype – many of which have come from you. Thank you for all your valuable input.

However, we’re still quite some time away from delivering the synthesizer as the firmware development is still ongoing. The UB-Xa is a very complex unit and frankly much has slowed down due to the current situation. Thank you for all your patience – we promise that it’ll be worth the wait, Be safe! Uli
