Behringer PRO-800 Bidirectional Editor for TouchOSC

Behringer PRO-800 TouchOSC Bidirectional Editor v2.0 from synth_nyc on Vimeo. Audio comes in at 1:30.

"The editor is augmented by LUA scripts.

Why TouchOSC?
- It’s OS agnostic (it works on MacOS, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android)
- Hexler has been around since 2007 and in my experience with TouchOSC, it has always been supporting the latest OS

If you have any questions or if Behringer or anyone is interested in licensing it, please contact me via my website:

How does the PRO-800 sound?
I’m grateful to have owned a SCI Prophet-5 Rev2, a Wine Country Sequential Prophet-5 Rev 3.3 and currently own a SCI Prophet-10 module; the PRO-800 sounds very vintage and close enough to its ancestors IMHO."
