Behringer can now create controllable analogue synth in a single tiny chip

Using the power of their good friends Coolaudio, Behringer have access to an incredible new music-making chip.

Coolaudio, an analogue and mixed-signal design company working under Behringer, have created an impressive new little piece of tech. Their V3397 chip is a revolutionary piece of miniscule technology that is capable of producing multiple waveforms for an analogue synth.

Its super-compact design means a boatload of new potential for Behringer synths. With the chip creating high-performance and quality sound in the size of a single chip they’ll be able to make instruments of diverse sizes including the potential for new compact, super-portable instruments.

Behringer say:

Wow – imagine a complete “Analog Synth On-a-Chip”.


Our sister company Coolaudio who designs highly sophisticated semiconductors, has just released a complete voice (2 multi-waveform Oscillators, a VCF plus 4 VCAs) on a single chip. The chip is an improved version of the Curtis CM3396 and will allow us to create high-performance analog poly synths in a very compact manner.

Stay tuned…
