I loved this synth. As a newbie to the world of synths, I did struggle to get to grips with it's signal flow initially. But it didn't take too long. I was even able to create a patch that with the filter half closed sounded a bit like a wood flute, but with the filter open sounded like something from Bladerunner... just stunning. Sadly my unit developed a fault within the first couple of weeks and I had to return it (for some reason Amazon wouldn't exchange it, and would only allow a return/refund). But it's going straight back on my shopping list, I will get another one, I loved it!
I have an old CATsrm by Octave which alas no longer works. Finding someone to fix it is a problem and a what cost? So I waited to see if the Behringer clone droped to below £200 and decided to get one if it did. Hurray for Amazon I got mine for £189! Testing it out I found that it was a great purchase and being familiar with the layout I soon had lots of fun re-creating lost sounds. I would say that it doesn't sound exactly like my old CATsrm but it is close, perhaps not quite as 'dirty' sounding. The ADSR attack is not quite up to scratch, perhaps because of the small controls (the slider distance isn't very far) so a sharp attack slightly above minimum isn't easy if not impossible. That said I still got some great percussive sounds. On my original synth the 'pitch-bend' was always a problem (not being a wheel) so luckily I can do that via MIDI on the Behringer. The controls are fairly solid and I found them spaced out well for such a small unit so there wasn't any problem fiddling about, even with the sliders (except for the ADSR attack as mentioned). If you are looking for an analogue synth with a pedigree and don't have much cash then get this one. The only downside is that its made in China (but what isn't?) and they are cahoots with the Russians!
Questo strumento suona davvero bene, non lasciatevi ingannare dal prezzo, il suono è veramente bello e pieno come ci si aspetta da un vero analogico di qualità. Anche la costruzione e buona. Unici nei ritengo siano uno nella corsa dei cursori, tutta la parte interessante dei tempi dell’inviluppo per esempio succede in due millimetri, con il risultato di non essere assolutamente beh graduabile, e due, soprattutto, la gestione della priorità della tastiera. È in modalità low senza possibilità di sceglierla, e questo va bene e non è un problema, (pensate ad un minimoog, nessuno e tantomeno io lo criticherò per la priorità low), ma se suonate una nota, poi una più alta, quest’ultima non suonerà, ma se rilasciate la prima deve suonare la seconda che avete suonato che è l’unica rimasta. Questo non succede e e fate una scala veloce ascendente e non staccate le note per bene la metà non suoneranno. In pratica diventa difficilmente suonabile e scordatevi di fare un fraseggio ascendente il legato. Può essere corretto con un aggiornamento firmware, speriamo….
I'm Mr.Tom, I'm a songwriter/composer under performance rights organization, BMI, Inc as well a a writer/ publisher under the Mechanical Licensing Collective (The MLC). I attached one small instrumental track recording the Behringer CAT synth multiple times using only the synth module and a separate software drum track. There is no issues with the synth module and I researched this model for weeks, before buying it. I recommend this one. - Mr.Tom
If you're wondering which of Behringer's low cost clone modules to get (1st)...well read on.
I won't bore you with a history lesson or a lesson on ethics...
The Behringer Cat is a Duophonic 2 oscillator fully analog synth module that can double as a rack mount. It's one of the smaller cased modules by Behringer. It only has a 3 octaves and note on/off + pitch wheel & sync midi implementation.
But versatility is what it has in spades. This thing can sound warm and fuzzy as well as scream brightly. Growl, punch, squeal you name it.
If I were to compare it to a modern synth of equal specs it would be arturia's microfreak... Yup I just went there... digital vs analog baby! I love both... This thing can cross modulate itself into oblivion and back! And by that I mean literally to the point it breaks itself. The "broken" elements people complain about are actually inherent to the original synth it was cloned from (except any midi hiccups reported such as trouble with note triggering when not 1st in chain, though I have not encountered such.)
I have this + the K2 (MS20) the TD3 and Behringer's unique Neutron. This puts them to shame as far as sonic capabilities. Remember most of these modules have NO sequencer!
I have no regrets on this purchase. It fits my needs and quality wise it's above average.
lets start with the negatives because that's why I ended up returning this synth for a refund after getting a replacement and the replacement breaking in about 3 days of use.
This synth has issues in its build.. first off.. the oscillator sync is broken on every unit, watch every review video, including both units I had.. first one was so bad I returned it , full 1/2 second audio dropouts on a sync sweep, soft or hard.. 2nd one didnt have the audio dropouts but glitching so unpleasant its unusable.
2nd one I got the glide function broke after about 3 days of use. Returned it and thats it. Upon looking at some online reviews and comments, which seem unusually sparse for this one, it appears sync is broken for everyone, and I found at least 2 other people claiming glide was broken .. also another issue I think I possibly had was the tuning seemed to jump around sometimes..
The good is it sounds nice and warm... but nothing "miraculous" close to like a UHE VST really, but the functionality was great for leads, pads, etc, you can cross modulate so much stuff and layer different osc shapes that you could really pull a ton of character out of sounds you cant get with most synths and their basic square-saw-triangle setups. If you get it I just hope yours isnt all busted up like mine were
Also dont expect any fat sounds out of this thing I think despite the sub osc and the 24db filter, I tried to pull off some Juno 60 style basslines and everything just sounds "soft and fluffy" couldnt pull a 303 either.. so just to let you know, although if you want "soft and fluffy and lots of color and character" this is it.. assuming its not broken.
Also its pretty "clean", not extremely "vintage" sounding like my K2 but sort of colorful and drifty enough where it sounds pretty nice and analog in the mix.
I have several Behringer Analog mono synths, but what makes the CAT so awesome, is it is actually duophonic, so you can play 2 notes at once. This makes it much more versatile than the other Behringer clone mono synths. Also, it's the only one that can actually produce generative sounds. It's a bit harder to wrap your head around the layout, but once you get it down it's very fun and insanely versatile.
The Behringer synths I have are the Crave, TD-3, Model D, and the CAT. I bought them in that order. If you're looking to get just one of the Behringer Clones, but don't know which one, get The CAT. I bought it last, but wish I had gotten it first. Don't get my wrong, I love all the other ones too, but The CAT is my favorite.
Mind Blowing sound from this. These behringer synths are insanely good sounding. This one in particular couple extreme versatility of synthesis functionality with the best overall sound quality i've hear from their oscillator ic's apart from maybe the Pro-1 & Crave. Severely underrated. It has the maths function generator style looping ad envelope, very snappy envelopes overall. very nice filter, osc mixer section is the most versatile for complex waves of any of these vintage monosynth recreations
I said it all in the title... Pitty... I returned it to Amzon.com after only one day... Got a 2nd one from Sweetwater, (which had the same 'GLIDE'-not-working issue... BUT they guarantee tech-support & replacement with a fully checked-working one, which I will get next week)..., As of now, both SYNC(s) work fine [amazing!) & I 'coaxed' some truly gnarly, earth-shattering sounds in no time out of this otherwise unassumingly/simple-looking little synth... It is a sonic treasure, really!! Only, I hope the built was sturdier... I still will give it another chance after I receive my next replacement from Sweetwater... BTW, I play it from my Lyricon WD (the vintage, 1970's purely analog wind synth controller)... AMAZING SOUNDS!!
