Behringer UB-Xa Analog Polyphonic Synth
Product Code: 450765
Embrace the legacy and make your mark on history with the UB-Xa from Behringer. More than just a recreation of a classic synthesizer, the UB-Xa has all the bells, whistles and characteristics that came with the original, but it’s also filled to the brim with modern features such as velocity and after-touch, 512 user program memories and comprehensive MIDI implementation. This makes for a well-rounded synth that’ll make friends with anything in your setup.
To recreate its iconic growl and sizzle, Behringer dove deep into the inner workings of the original OB-Xa and brought them into the 21st century including all its original factory patches that made the 80s roar. Thanks to its VCOs and VCFs heavily based on the original 3340 and 3320 chip designs, 16 voices and the ability to split its keyboard so you can layer 2 different sounds, the UB-Xa is capable of conjuring up massive sounding riffs.
The UB-Xa is a synth like no other that stands on the shoulders of giants! Its legacy is what gave birth to the 80s most iconic hits from the world’s most famous artists! From Rush’s Geddy Lee, The Police, Prince to Van Halen, and even the iconic Terminator theme composed by Brad Fiedel, the UB-Xa’s lineage is filled only with the greats and now you can make your own mark on history as well.
The UB-Xa comes with 61 full-sized, semi-weighted keys with polyphonic after touch and velocity sensitivity which detect every nuance of your playing from soft, feather-like touches to an intense chordal bombardment. The 8-channel modulation matrix provides you with the extreme flexibility and expands what the UB-Xa can do sonically. The 26 rotary controls plus a myriad of other functions give you direct control over the UB-Xa’s VCOs, LFOs, ADSR generators and VCAs to sculpt your sound in a nigh-on unlimited number of ways.
Finding that tone you’ve been looking for after an amazing hour (or four) of tweaking and noodling is one of the most rewarding things when playing a synth. Which is why we’ve included up to 512 user program memories that allow you to save any setting you can come up with. You can even assign them to any of the pre-set recall switches so you can change pre-sets on the fly, in the middle of a jam.
