Behringer, the budget synth manufacturer, has officially released its JT-4000 Micro synth, available for immediate shipping. This compact and portable synth draws inspiration from the iconic Roland JP-8000, first introduced in 1996.
Behringer initially announced the product’s production in May of this year after chip shortages delayed its release. At the time, it was priced at an estimated $69, up from the initial $49. However, Behringer has since returned to the original $49 price point, as confirmed on their Facebook page.
The JT-4000 is a programmable four-voice hybrid synth featuring two analog modeling oscillators per voice. Behringer emphasizes that it faithfully replicates the JP-8000 sound engine, including its distinctive Supersaw waveform. Additionally, it boasts 32 memory presets and incorporates 16 touch-sensitive keys.
This synth includes two LFOs and utilizes analog filters along with a 12-bit DAC to deliver the warm and natural sound characteristic of classic full-sized synthesizers but in a much more compact form factor.
