Behringer Enigma - Buchla Music Easel in Eurorack Desktop Form for $399



Another from Behringer

"We have stared to design an “Easel 208” inspired Eurorack version called Enigma. While the analog section is an authentic replica of the original synth, which also includes 14 optocouplers, we plan to add total recall functionality with an OLED display and CC control plus USB/Midi.

We believe we could make this product for US$ 399 retail.

What do you think about the functionality, layout and price?"

  1. Considering Buchla still make these, can't they just send a cease and desist letter to Behringer?

    1. No. If there ever were any patents related to the design Behringer are cloning, they've expired by now, and the electrical design is not copyrightable. The only real concern by now is trademarks which may apply to different aspects of e.g. the panel design, and it looks like the panel layout is different on the proposed Enigma anyway.
