The first 2500 series synth modules came out in the 70s and tended to be extremely expensive. They were mainly all discrete transistor designs with some op-amps as at the time op-amps were high cost. The discrete circuitry gave the modules a very distinctive sound and were used by artists like The Who, Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Kraftwerk and so many more, giving us some of the greatest records and film soundtracks we’ve ever heard. Modular synths were a landmark development in electronic music and today, it’s about to get better.
This is the Behringer 2500 series DUAL NOISE/RANDOM VOLTAGE MODULE 1016. An authentic reproduction of the original “System 2500” circuitry from the 70’s that can fit in a standard Eurorack case. The best part? It’s at a very affordable price. Mix the DUAL NOISE/RANDOM VOLTAGE MODULE 1016 in with your existing rig or start your modular synth journey from here. Either way you’re sure to have a lot of fun.
The DUAL NOISE/RANDOM VOLTAGE MODULE 1016 is a classic discrete transistor white/pink/random noise source with independent attenuators for the white/pink noise level, a white /pink selector switch with color coded LED’s. The slow random voltage generator produces random CV voltages and the maximum level can be controlled via the attenuators as well as an on/off switch with LED indicators for each channel. The 2 channels are completely independent of each other for even more creative possibilities.
