Behringer has today published the first pictures of an upcoming remake of the Pearl Syncussion SY-1 drum Synthesizer in Eurorack.

Behringer continues to revive vintage synthesizers. Now it’s time for a well-known drum Synthesizer. And this time it’s not from Roland. Today, they have published photos of the prototype of the Pearl Syncussion SY-1, a clone/ replica/recreation, as you want to call it, of the original of the same name from the late 1970s.

According to the photos, the shape will be changed here and it will be published for the Eurorack format, i.e. in the same form factor as the Model D, Neutron, etc. They are asking the synth communities on Facebook if they are interested in a remake. I definitely say yes

Like the original, it will have 6 oscillator modes per channel and is capable of creating a wide range of sounds. From the classic 70’s disco “peeoww” to tight bells, thunderous Kick drums and Gnarly Bass sounds.

They can be triggered via MIDI, USB-MIDI, or via the connection on the top panel. An interesting idea is to bring back the Pearl Syncussion Synthesizer. But Behringer is not the first company to offer authentic recreations of it. For example, we saw a clone by Psycox back in 2020. But it will certainly be a very good sounding alternative to a very affordable price. Looking forward to hear it.


All details of the Behringer Syncussion SY-1 will be available soon. Stay tuned.
