Behringer - 2600 Blue Marvin Limited-Edition Analog Semi-modular Synthesizer

 

Few synthesizers are as celebrated as the original 2600, and now Behringer has brought the venerable semi-modular workhorse to the masses in an affordable 8U rackmountable format. Based on an ultra-rare early 2600 with a bright blue fit, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin leans into its normalled signal path and patch-point architecture to provide intrepid synthesists with a powerful sound creation platform. Whether you’re chasing classic synth sounds or concocting future-facing musical manifestations, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin arms you with a wealth of audio design tools, including three beefy VCOs, a multimode VCF, mountains of modulation, and inexhaustible routing options. With 78 faders and switches, 93 patch points, and Eurorack compatibility, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin has challenged synthesists at Leaseville to tap out its creative potential. So far, we can’t, but maybe you can! Totally authentic and absolutely absorbing, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin is a sonic wonderland for analog aficionados and modular marauders alike.

Behringer dug in deep to meticulously replicate the original unit’s analog circuitry, and it shows. From its vintage-style voltage-controlled oscillators, filters, and amplifier to the modular patch-point architecture and normalled signal paths (which allow for incredible sound-design flexibility), the Behringer 2600 Marvin gives old-school-synth enthusiasts a truly authentic vintage semi-modular experience. Plus, it’s completely compatible with modern Eurorack setups, supplying an unreal launchpad for next-level sonic manipulation.

Outfitted with three VCOs, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin boasts the signature girthsome tone of its predecessor, which lends itself to brutal bass sounds, gritty leads, and crystalline plucks. VCO1 features independent sawtooth and pulse wave outputs. While VCO2 and VCO3 furnish independent outputs for triangle, sawtooth, sine, and pulse wave (with pulse width modulation), as well as oscillator sync. Additionally, you can set all three oscillators to low-frequency mode for use as LFOs to modulate the 2600 Blue Marvin’s myriad parameters, and they have numerous CV inputs for frequency modulation via LFO, sample & hold, ADSR envelope, and more.

One of the aspects of the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin that makes it such a soundscaping powerhouse is its bevy of modulation sources. These include the usual suspects like sample & hold and ring modulator, as well as more rarefied beasts present in the 2600’s voltage processor section.

On the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin, all roads eventually lead to the mixer section, which houses the 2600’s voltage-controlled amplifier and stereo output, plus a true mechanical spring reverb — just like the original — to add the final dash of atmosphere to a patch. To its left sit the 2600’s dual envelope generators, a traditional 4-stage ADSR, and a simplified AR with a push-button manual re-trigger and another fun twist — a time factor switch, which allows you to double or halve the envelope’s total duration in an instant.
