Behringer PRO VS MINI 4-voice hybrid synth launches

Along with the JT-4000 MICRO comes Behringer’s PRO VS MINI 4-voice hybrid synthesiser featuring four morphing oscillators per voice, analog low-pass filter, 16-step sequencer and arpeggiator.

It’s a recreation of the Prophet VS synth, but in a portable form factor. Hardware includes 27 touch sensitive capacitive touch keys plus a joystick oscillator knob. On board is 128 waveforms, arpeggiator, four oscillators, 16-step sequencer, studio-grade chorus, individual envelopes for filter, amplifier and oscillator plus two LFOs.

The joystick allows for some interesting sounds to be easily created which may be more difficult with other devices.
