Behringer Considering Eurorack Desktop Solina String Ensemble - Update: And a CS80?

"In the '80's, combining a Solina stringer with a Small Stone phaser was the way to go.

That's our take on it - please ignore the date and price as we haven't decided if and when we will build this recreation."

"I’ve been thinking about this... Uli"

Remember, with the CS80 it's not just about the synth engine - it's about the interface and instrument as a whole. And... It not just about the visual/functional interface, it's how it feels - the specific feel of the aftertouch, pivoting, sliders, and how the synth engine responds to that. See the following posts for some perspective on that:
