The release contains eleven modules, which form a reconstruction of Roland’s System 100 M when combined.
While we are here for the NAMM Show in Anaheim, California, Behringer has set up camp in “Banaheim” to reveal the latest modular Eurorack units, which are reproductions of the modules used in the 100 M Roland Module. The modules are said to cost between $49 and $99 each, via Behringers’ YouTube channel.
The brand tricked out teaser videos leading up to today in true Behringer fashion, hinting strongly at a modular release, which is no surprise given the recent announcement of Eurorack Go. We now have a new set of Eurorack modules as anticipated – perhaps not planned, though, is a package of 11 modules promoted at once.
Each of the modules was genuine reproductions of Ronald’s System 100 M parts, emulating the initial circuitry to give a faithful reconstruction, and is appropriately called the Behringer System 100.
Although the components can be merged to replicate the traditional modular set-up, there is no need to pick all the parts in order to get imaginative. Specific System 100 parts can be picked up and hooked to other instruments to offer new sonic possibilities, such as adding an extra voice, filter, sequencer and more.
Many of the modules are also built with dual functions, so you’re not limited to what each component can achieve.
The company has taken to the comment section on YouTube to tell its potential customers that module rates would vary between $49 – $99. This is not only inexpensive for a machine 100 M replication that gets up to over $4000 but there maybe some of the more competitive systems on the modular market at large.
