Behringer set to release a budget Minimoog clone

Affordable music gear company Behringer is planning to release a budget version of the Minimoog Eurorack module, founder Uli Behringer has revealed.

With plans to role out a series of affordable synths, Behringer also defended plans to mimic the iconic Moog synth.

Genuine Minimoog’s, which can sell for well over £3000, remain unaffordable to most musicians and, according to Behringer, their new range is aimed at solving that problem.

“The general rule and the law clearly describe that technology is free for everyone to use, provided it is not protected,” he said . “You may have a different personal view, but that’s how our society and every industry works – again why the law has been designed the way it is.

“In case of the MiniMoog there is no IP (Intellectual Property) involved as the technology is more than 40 years old and all patents have long expired. As a result, the property is now in the public domain, free for everyone to use. Without this principle there would only be one car or synthesizer manufacturer in the world.
