Behringer today introduced the Saturn Soul Synthesizer, a paraphonic monosynth that they say is based on “the classic Jupiter synthesizer from the ‘80s”.
While the company describes the synth as an analog polyphonic synthesizer, many would categorize it as a paraphonic monosynth design, meaning that it’s a single synth voice, with individually controllable oscillators.
Behringer notes that they’re working on a full-size copy of the Jupiter-8, but this is designed to be an inexpensive mini-synth take on it.
