Dahlia, Roland W-30, Behringer VC340 Vocoder

The beautiful Dahlia returns; this time she is playing a tune on a Roland W-30 with a Behringer VC340 vocoder above. From our friend Rob Robinson via Instagram.

The Roland W-30 was a sampling workstation released in 1989 (about the same time as the Ensoniq EPS workstation that I chose for my own work). The Behringer VC340 is a recreation of the Roland VP-330 vocoder. I was quite intrigued by this offering, as we can see from this NAMM 2019 video.

Bear Performs Arpeggios (Akai, Native Instruments, Behringer, Novation)

Bear performs an arpeggiated solo for us across multiple synths. From HiddenBytes on Twitter.

We see Akai MPK-249 and NI Komplete Kontrol S61 MK2 as Bear’s main keyboards. There are also Behringer RD-8 and TD-3 beat machines, a Novation Launchpad, an Akai Fire, and an NI Maschine MK 3.

Cat in the Studio (Sequential, Moog, Modular, more)

A spatious studio space with sundry synthesizers, including Sequential, Moog, a modular, and more. Of course, no studio is complete without a cat, and a cat bed. I really like how open and light the space is.

We at CatSynth can certainly relate to that description.

“You said you were getting an SH-101 goddamit!”

The MS-101 ios Behringer’s re-recreation of the infamous Roland SH-101 analog synthesizer. Like the original, it comes in red, blue, and gray, and has that crunchy bass sound. We at CatSynth had the opportunity to try it out at Behringer’s Pre-NAMM event back in 2019.
