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 SAMPLE & HOLD/RANDOM VOLTAGE MODULE 1036. 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 SAMPLE & HOLD/RANDOM VOLTAGE MODULE 1036 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 SAMPLE & HOLD/RANDOM VOLTAGE MODULE 1036 is a classic analog sample and hold module. The 1036 features discrete transistor circuitry to add vintage character and is equipped with onboard clock frequency controls, frequency range switches, clock on/off switches, trigger/gate select switches, manual sample switches, internal random signal level controls, external signal input attenuators and clock frequency modulation attenuators to create amazing sounds.
