The renowned synth cloners are at it again, this time appearing to tease a new model that looks a lot like it could bear more than a passing resemblance to Korg's MS-20.
In a blog post today, Behringer may have just revealed one of its new and as-yet unreleased synths. In the picture below you can see a new synthesizer clone: the Behringer K-20, which seems to be an analog clone of the KORG MS-20. Whether it is a Eurorack synthesizer or a larger desktop synth is as yet not clear.
