Behring K-2
Soundarc, 01.09.2020
Behringer's K-2 has tones of synthesis possibilities and can be used to compose all kinds of music.
A very trusted replica of Korg's MS 20 can produce big fat and aggressive sounds also the dual filters makes the difference on that compact synthesizer and of course you have the patch bay with opens the window for many possibilities.
At the cons side now I would prefer a most simple writing on the patchbay , and I thing I will be wright if I say that they are just to many knobs which is a bit confusing.
At the pros side I would say that if you are looking to make big fat sounds with an addition of a patch bay in this price area this is a no brainer.

A Go-To Synth for Gritty Sound.
*Theo E*, 31.08.2020
I had the K-2 for quite a long time, and I wanted to make sure I understood how it works, before writing a review, because it has some quirks, in contrast to other more popular Behringer clones. I'd say, although it sounds fantastic maybe you should go with a Pro-1 or a Model-D if this is your first analog synth.

The good parts first: It is well built! The oscillators sound fantastic, and the low pass filters (two switchable types) sound really rich, with the first one, being able to produce some really squeaky sounds once you crank up the resonance. I was blown away by the sound I god right away. Need extra bass? Turn up the resonance of the HP filter and dial in the appropriate cutoff! Awesomeness!

On the other hand, due to cloning the old design, there are some important features missing, like PWM. EG2 behaves strange, and EG1 -although it could be used for many things,its only patched to OSC pitch. On the right side of the device, the patch diagram can get confusing and takes some time to learn. When you do learn it however, you'll be able to do crazy stuff.

It is an elementary addition to your gear, IMHO!

A lot of fun synth
Kickname, 29.08.2020
I'm using it for two months or something. I'm really satisfied playing with this synth so far. I like how it sounds and feels. Unfortunately I can't compare to original ms-20 or ms-20 mini as I've never owned them. Anyway, there are a couple of great video reviews online, including comparison as well as those who just presents all the features and limitations. I suggest checking them. From what I can say for sure: synth sounds great, there's two filters in two revisions, each of them sounds great. Patchbay has a lot of fun stuff. I also like to have pitch modulation, something you can't find in most inexpensive synths. The biggest issue I guess is the poor MIDI implementation, which makes it harder to use in Eurorack. Other than that, this synth is really good.

Portable AND Powerful!
Roderick Leviton, 22.10.2019
An amazing product yet again by the Behringer Team! They nailed the sound of the MS-20 with this version. I already have the Korg MS-20 Mini and I must admit that the sound is ever so slightly warmer sounding, while the K-2 is more "New and Crunchy" sounding. Difficult to explain but they really are "familiar sounding" and you will not notice the difference in the "Final Mix/Song".

If you want a portable desktop version of the MS-20, then definitely grab the K-2. It's built like a tank, the same as the Model-D and Neutron.

The ONLY con is that the K-2 ONLY came with 2 x Patch Cables. So when you buy this item, make sure that you pickup a few extra patch cables to have fun with. Luckily, I still have a few from my Neutron and MS-20.

Amazing sound for such a small footprint.

I HIGHLY recommend the K-2 as a GREAT PURCHASE! You know you want one!
