Inspired by a classic from the 90s
Behringer has announced its new Synthesizer. The JP-4000, a Roland JP-8000 clone that is their most affordable synth to date.
‘When Uli was 16, he built his first synthesizer because he couldn’t afford to buy one. This experience defined his later career to build musical equipment and make it affordable for everyone.
It was his dream to one day deliver a synthesizer everyone could afford so kids could be introduced to music at an early stage. This could spark a lifelong love affair for electronic music and the art of music synthesis.’
