Based on an ultra-rare early 2600 with a bright blue fit, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin leans into its normalled signal path and patch-point architecture to provide intrepid synthesists with a powerful sound creation platform. Whether you’re chasing classic synth sounds or concocting future-facing musical manifestations, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin arms you with a wealth of audio design tools, including three beefy VCOs, a multimode VCF, mountains of modulation, and inexhaustible routing options. With 78 faders and switches, 93 patch points, and Eurorack compatibility Packed with three swaggering VCOs Outfitted with three VCOs, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin boasts the signature girthsome tone of its predecessor, which lends itself to brutal bass sounds, gritty leads, and crystalline plucks. VCO1 features independent sawtooth and pulse wave outputs. While VCO2 and VCO3 furnish independent outputs for triangle, sawtooth, sine, and pulse wave (with pulse width modulation), as well as oscillator sync. Additionally, you can set all three oscillators to low-frequency mode for use as LFOs to modulate the 2600 Blue Marvin’s myriad parameters, and they have numerous CV inputs for frequency modulation via LFO, sample & hold, ADSR envelope, and more. A tale of two filter circuits The Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin comes with not one but two selectable lowpass voltage-controlled filter circuits: the 4012 and 4072. Though these are both 4-pole resonant filters, they have some significant sonic differences. Featured on all of the 2600 revisions up to 1976, including the 2601 Rev 1, the 4012 filter has a similar disposition to a certain legendary ladder filter. Chock-full of growling attitude with a greasy resonance, it’s an absolute monster. Myriad modulation sources for serious signal manipulation One of the aspects of the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin that makes it such a soundscaping powerhouse is its bevy of modulation sources. These include the usual suspects like sample & hold and ring modulator, as well as more rarefied beasts present in the 2600’s voltage processor section. Accessible only via patch cables, the voltage processor section comprises two inverters, a lag time control, and an envelope follower, opening up the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin to possibilities far beyond traditional fixed architecture subtractive synthesizers. Additionally, the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin boasts four linked parallel connections that function as both inputs and outputs and can be used to duplicate and combine signals. Modern features make this the most versatile 2600 yet The Behringer’s 8U rack-mountable form factor is another welcome riff, giving users more flexible mounting options. The unicolor LED faders shine brightly on a darkened stage and serve as a helpful visual aid while shaping patches during a performance. Stereo output and mechanical spring reverb On the Behringer 2600 Blue Marvin, all roads eventually lead to the mixer section, which houses the 2600’s voltage-controlled amplifier and stereo output, plus a true mechanical spring reverb — just like the original — to add the final dash of atmosphere to a patch. To its left sit the 2600’s dual envelope generators, a traditional 4-stage ADSR, and a simplified AR with a push-button manual re-trigger and another fun twist — a time factor switch, which allows you to double or halve the envelope’s total duration in an instant.
