Behringer, a lead manufacturer of audio hardware products, is consulting synth communities across the internet to source innovative features sought after by their users to help clone the vintage CR-78 Drum Machine.
Off the recent hype for their Roland TR model clone releases, Behringer is wasting no time in sourcing recommendations to deliver on their next product.
The original CR-78 rhythm machine was released by the Roland Corporation back in 1978, and was the first of its kind to introduce microprocessors into the technology. Similar to the step programming method of their other legendary product, the TR-808, the CR-78 produced electronic groove patterns mimicking many genres of the time with distinct analog drum sounds.
The product currently has no set release date while Uli Behringer, the founder and owner of Behringer, continues his research into the CR-78's communities user-feature requests.
