Behringer Unveils The CAT Synth
Behringer ended the decade in typical fashion, announcing its latest 'reproduction' of a classic synth. Next off the rank is the CAT, a clone of the Octave CAT (minus keyboard), an analogue, dual VCO synth used by the likes of OMD, Devo and, more recently, The Chemical Brothers. The CAT was actually first announced as part of a raft of promised Behringer clones in 2017, but this is the first definitive sighting since. Powered by a clone of the original's guts, reproducing the “CAT SRM II” circuitry with matched transistors and JFETs, it's a dual-VCO affair with sawtooth, triangle, modulated pulse and sub-octave square shapes on one oscillator, plus sawtooth, square and sub on the other.
