The 1970s and 80s spawned the first wave of portable analog synthesizers, and while quickly adopted by a bevy of renowned musical artists including Jan Hammer, Chick Corea, Rick Wakeman, Jean-Michel Jarre, Isao Tomita, and Keith Emerson to name a few, they were somewhat temperamental and very expensive. An updated incarnation of its predecessors with all the original features and then some, the BEHRINGER NEUTRON lets you conjure up virtually any monophonic sound imaginable with incredible finesse and ease.
The pure analog signal path is based on authentic VCO, VCF, VCA, and state variable filter designs in conjunction, with a flexible, multi-wave LFO and classic Bucket Brigade Delay (BBD). NEUTRON’s Paraphonic mode allows both 3340 analog oscillators to be independently controlled for an expanded palette of tonal options. And when it comes to protection and convenience, the NEUTRON can be mounted in a standard Eurorack, making it ideal for the studio and/or the road. Owning a NEUTRON is like having your own personal time machine, enabling you to freely embrace the past – or shape the future.
Designed around an intuitively-linear workflow, NEUTRON benefits greatly from its semi-modular design, which requires no patching for immediate performance. Just put your NEUTRON into self-oscillation, connect your favorite keyboard or computer via MIDI over DIN or USB – and start exploring the world of analog music synthesis right out-of-the-box.
Great care has been taken in designing the NEUTRON to ensure it is true to the circuitry of the classic synthesizers that made musical history. This highly-focused attention to detail is what gives the NEUTRON its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability, which covers everything from super-fat bass and leads tones, stunning effects, progressive organ sounds – and all the way out to the otherworldly sounds of your imagination. Designed to handle the rigors of life on the road or in the studio, your NEUTRON can easily be transferred into a standard Euro rack 80HP case for the perfect integration into your existing system.
The inspired synthesizer tracks laid down in the 1970s and ’80s are etched in the annals of progressive rock, wave, and synth-pop music forever, making them truly classic in every sense of the word. NEUTRON’s pure analog signal path with legendary VCO, VCF and VCA circuits, lets you recreate all of that magic – or design incredibly fat and original sounds that will make you a legend in your own right. When it comes to enveloping generation, NEUTRON has all bases covered, thanks to its 2 ADSR (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) envelope generators. NEUTRON serves up all the versatility and tone-sculpting options a professional musician could ask for.
We just can’t help ourselves – like you, we're gear-heads, too. For those who want the numbers, NEUTRON has 36 knobs and 7 switches, all laid out in a highly-intuitive format that puts the joy back into your music creation. The onboard patching matrix provides 32 In x 24 Out TS 1/8" (3.5 mm) connections. Additional I/O includes MIDI I/O and Thru over USB/MIDI DIN; main audio Input and Output; and Phones – with its own dedicated level control.
