Behringer Semi-Modular Tabletop and Eurorack Monophonic Analog Synthesizer Based on Korg MS-20

Although only produced from 1978 to 1983, Korg MS-20 has been favored by numerous world-famous artists. An ultra-affordable homage to that iconic synthesizer with all the features of the original and then some, Behringer K-2 lets you conjure up virtually any sound with incredible finesse and ease. With its pure analog signal path, dual authentic VCOs with 4 selectable waveforms each, plus extremely flexible VCF and VCA filters, K-2 is sure to become your favorite synthesizer.

  • Amazing analog synthesizer with dual VCO design allows for insanely fat music creation
  • Authentic reproduction of original circuitry with matched transistors and JFETs
  • Pure analog signal path based on authentic VCO, VCF and VCA designs
  • Semi-modular architecture with default routings requires no patching for immediate performance
  • First and second generation filter design (high pass / low pass with peak/resonance)
  • 4 variable oscillator shapes with variable pulse widths and ring modulation
  • Dedicated and fully analog triangle/square wave LFO
  • 2 analog envelope generators for modulation of VCF and VCA
  • 16-voice poly chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 16-voice polyphony
  • Complete eurorack solution: main module can be installed in a standard eurorack case
  • 36 controls give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters
  • External audio input for processing external sound sources
  • Comprehensive USB/MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and voice priority selection
  • 3-year manufacturer warranty
 

Pure analog signal path
Great care has been taken in engineering K-2, including the true-to-the-original VCO, VCF and VCA designs and pure analog circuitry with matched transistors and JFETs. This highly-focused attention to detail is what gives K-2 its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability, which covers everything from super-fat bass and lead tones to stunning effects.

Rock right out of the box
K-2 comes ready to rock, thanks to its default signal routing that doesn't require lifting a single patch cable to instantly create amazing sounds. The semi-modular architecture lets you easily tap into the inspired sounds of 1980s and 90s progressive rock, wave, EDM and synth-pop music synthesizer tracks that made rock and roll history.

Versatile VCF
The very heart of K-2's sound is its versatile 24 dB/octave filter, which lets you freely experiment with the high pass and low pass cutoff frequencies and their respective peak (resonance) settings to dial in the perfect sound. The high pass filter sets the level of signals below the cutoff frequency, effectively reducing the fundamental and lower-order harmonics levels. The low pass filter controls the level of signals above the cutoff, which reduces higher-order harmonic content. K-2's VCF peak controls provide emphasis to the signals at the crossover frequency.

Vintage oscillators
K-2's authentic voltage-controlled oscillators provide an incredible range of 4 variable oscillator shapes with variable pulse widths and ring modulation for the ultimate in sound creation. VCO 1 waveform choices include triangle, reverse-sawtooth, noise and pulse, where the pulse width can be adjusted from square wave to narrow across a 4-octave range. VCO 2's waveform can be selected from reverse-sawtooth, square, narrow pulse and ring, where both oscillators are operating. VCO 2's pitch can also be varied independently across a 4-octave range. The VCO mixer allows you to adjust the levels of VCO 1 and VCO 2 to create an overall mix.

The envelope, please...
Make that envelopes! K-2's low frequency oscillator, the Modulation Generator, features a selectable waveform (reverse sawtooth, triangle, sawtooth) with a sweepable frequency range from 0.1 to 22 Hz and 2 separate envelope generators to help you craft incredible sounds. Envelope generator 1 affects the frequency modulation via controls for delay, attack and release time, while generator 2 adjusts the cutoff frequency modulation as well as amplitude modulation of the voltage-controlled amplifier. Dials for this generator include hold, decay, attack, sustain and release for unparalleled envelope-shaping control.

16-note poly chain ready
While it is a monophonic instrument, K-2's 16-note poly chain function lets you combine multiple synthesizers for up to 16-voice polyphony.

Controls & connectivity
For those who want the numbers, K-2 has 36 controls, all laid out in a highly-intuitive format that puts the joy back into your music creation. And you can expand K-2's tone-sculpting capabilities beyond your wildest dreams by utilizing the multi-I/O patchbay to connect external devices at virtually any point in the signal path.
