    Hi. I’m a poly d owner since last week. I wanted to update the firmware but it doesn’t work. A window pops up and says “ update faild, try again“ another window pops up either and says the Poly-D is DFU mode please update firmware. Nothing works no keys no knobs no sound.. the Power light blinks green and red . I have to take it from the usb first and turn it off and on and the. It works again. So why is that. Why is a firmware update via synthtool app Not possible. Can anyone help?!

      punkinjunction Is it working ok? I believe this is the experience you will have if your unit already has the latest firmware. I recently purchased my poly-D which appears to have the latest firmware, however, I get the same error when I attempt to update it.

    Just taken delivery of my 4th Behringer keyboard... the Poly D.... it sound s amazing BUT.... there is a click when you have teh attack up full ( as you would on teh original Moog ( which I have set up next to it ).... and most synths)... this click stays there at a constant volume, even when you switch off the Ocilators... you can bring the attack back, but this changes the CLICK into dull thud.... this is OK when you have a raging solo in the mid register...BUT try a soft filtered sequence where you need the attack up full... the CLICK /THUD is louder than teh sound... Un useable.... Im really hoping this is just my keyboard...????

      RonaldFigura can you post a video that allows us to hear the sound and a clear view of your panel settings?

    Hi, Before updating to last firmware version, I was able to trig the sequencer with an accent coming from my Miami. However, with this new update and no matter the settings (rate & polarity), the sequencer is acting weirdly and not as before, tight, that is. What's going on with this ? PS. Also tried to trig with LT trig out from TR-606 but to no avail.

    hello you all! my question Is: it is normal that the rise of the attack in its maximum position (where 10s is written) reaches its top sound volume in only 7 seconds?? ? I have tried it with a linear VCA and an exponential VCA and the result is always 7 seconds, it is a failure or it is normal? The manual confirms that the maximum attack time is 10 seconds, and the EG of my model Model D take really 10s to end up. Thanks for your answers, and sorry for my english.

      JoeRivers96 Hi Marceloide, i have found the support case you submitted through our portal - thank you for doing this. I replied to you this morning with some questions if you wouldn't mind checking that out. Thanks!

    Playing notes on my MS-1 sometimes triggers the accent (normally available with the sequencer). This happens when I play with moderate to high velocity, but not when I play soft notes. The result is a short filter freq push, as if it was modulated by a short envelope. Env-Amount in Filter is turned down. Accent button isn't pressed or permanently turned on. Is there a way to turn this off or is it a bug? / Ludvig

      JoeRivers96 Hi Ludvig, thank you for reaching out to us. Is this occurring when using the internal keyboard as well as when triggering via MIDI/USB? Have you tried adjusting the velocity curve via the SynthTool? If possible, a video would be useful to display the issue - would you mind sending this via a support ticket? This can be submitted by pressing SUPPORT at the top of this page.

      • MS-1 accent when playing with high velocity
        LuisCarloz Thanks - there was a setting in SynthTool called Accent Velocity Threshold - setting this to 127 removed this issue. This all makes sense, I just haven't seen any mention of keyboard velocity being able to trigger Accent anywhere.

    After last firmware update (1.1.7 from Synth Tool 2.3.8), D#-E & B-C keys do not work properly anymore. D# and E sound the same, and similar thing happens to B and C. Now I can't find that update in the download area, so, I assume everything went wrong with that Glide update for the MS-1, since it does not have a three position button for GLIDE… right!? So, I guess I need to revert that last update… is there a way to do it without selling my soul to devil? Thanks in advance!

        NicJonesMT Hi BeatNik420.
        If possible could you please open a technical support/service request ticket (Press support at the top and fill in the form), so that we can gather some more information and arrange an inspection if required.

        Thank you!

    I have a love/hate relationship with MusicTribe, particularly Behringer. I own a LOT of Behringer gear, most recently most of the Synthesizer line. While I enjoy Behringer products (mostly because of price to performance ratio), I find Music Tribe to be too ambitious overall. For example the new "Support/Community" website is a mess. It's hard to navigate, slower than molasses, most of the links don't work, there is an exceptional amount of support documentation MISSING, response times can be very long, etc. I could go on, but you get the idea. Another issue (most recently for me with the synths) is the lack of proper User Guides. A quick Start Guide is fine if you just want to pull a product out of a box and try some basics, but not being able to "deep dive" with a synth is a travesty! Not even a signal flow chart?? Regarding the Neutron, I've had two units which have died in the same manner, and what caused their death is shocking. One wouldn't think that doing a proper "Factory Reset" would trash a synth, but that is exactly what happened, TWICE!! I created a ticket the other day for the second unit, and the response asked me to make a YouTube video to send to the programers. How about an RMA number so I can get the unit exchanged?? They couldn't fix the first one, so I'm assuming they'll do the same again. I need a new unit, and don't want to be a YouTube Star! Making a video is fine, but help me with the repair!!! Call me paranoid, but I'm expecting an issue with them verifying the Serial Number of the second Neutron because I only registered the original unit, not the replacement. I don't want to have to go through a big rigamarole getting the second unit repaired/replaced. Scary stuff! As for the company getting too big too fast, I have many thousands of dollars worth of Behringer gear for my small Live Sound Reinforcement company. I'm a technical person, so I read and reread all of the manuals so I know how to get the most out of my gear. There are soooooooo many typos and general errors and contradictions in the various manuals it's not funny. I do NOT understand why things are done in such a rush-rush way. Either there are to few employees to do a proper job, they don't really care, or there is great disorganization (possibly turnover) within the ranks. This could really be an outstanding company if they would only SLOW DOWN, take a breath, and be more attuned to the details. I envision thousands of harried individuals running around at Music Tribe with no one actually being given the time or space to do a proper job. That's my humble opinion.

      NicJonesMT Hi Jeff. Firstly let me apologise for the delay in my response. Unfortunately we are having a few system issues which is causing a delayed response. Our teams are looking into this to see if they can get things running smoothly again. I will pass your comments along with relation to the community and general system issues.

      With regard to your support cases, the reason that we ask for videos is so that we can visually and audibly assess your issue. This is extremely helpful as we can see all physical parameters, connections, and other devices used in your system, as well as the behaviour of the device. The reason we ask is because it really helps us with identifying the issue quickly and to come to a resolution. We can also then share these videos with other departments where needed, such as our innovation and development teams or Root Cause Analysis technicians.
      Although you may have experienced this issue with a previous device, we still need information on usage and behaviour of the device to raise the RMA, and a video is the quickest and easiest way to do this (It tends to tick all boxes in one go, rather than backward and forward responses). This is also to prevent your device coming in and No fault being found, which could incur inspection charges for you.
      Alternatively if the issue has already been reported and resolved, we can then swiftly provide you with how to resolve the issue quickly.

      With regard to User Manuals, these have currently been placed under review to investigate new and innovative digital solutions to provide our users with a better experience. As above these are still in development and investigating alternative options, but if you have any general feedback or improvements that we could make to our QSG's or future manuals, I would be more than happy for you to send this over and I will pass it on to the relevant teams.
      I have managed to find your details on our CRM system with your cases, so I will contact you directly so that you have a direct contact to feed this information on to.



      Again I can only genuinely apologise for any inconvenience.

      JeffPorrello Hi Nic! I want to thank you very much for the detailed response! You seem like a real standup guy (possibly an American expression) in that you truly care about your customers and your job! I now understand more fully the importance of the videos and will endeavor to do a better job in the future. I've already sent the Neutron in once given the RMA number, but can assure you that in my case, there wasn't a lot to see. There were no physical connections to the unit except headphones. The LFO SHAPE selector knob was pointing at one shape with the dial, but a completely different shape was lit up as far as the LED was concerned and turning the knob did not change shapes. The LFO SPEED was stuck in the slowest position even though you turned the knob, and, as far as the OSC 2 Shape knob, you are able to turn the knob, but the shape itself is stuck (sometimes with one shape LED on, sometimes with two). This happened to me twice now, previously with the original unit. The video would have shown these anomalies, but I don't believe you would have learned anything by me turning the knobs beyond what I just described. I do really appreciate your attitude and help on this matter!!

      NicJonesMT Hi Jeff

      I had a quick look on our system and can see that a member of our US team has been sorting you out with the Neutron (Correct me if I'm wrong!).

      You've got my E-mail address so drop me a message if i'm wrong and I'll ask a member of the team to jump on it.

    I have a brand new Odyssey Synth. I'm not new to synthesizers. All notes get stuck on. I cannot find a way to rectify this. I would like to find a solution before exchanging it for a new one. Any ideas? I found an old post during a web search with someone having the same issue along with a solution. Of course when you click on the link it takes you to an old Behringer support page and says "Page Not Found"! Gee, Thanks!! Also, what's up with only QSGs (Quick Start Guides). Why aren't they're any advanced User Guides??? (Same with the MS-1 Synth!!). C'mon Behringer, help us out here!!

      JoeRivers96 Hi Jeff - thanks for reaching out! When you say the notes are stuck on, does the pitch change is you trigger different notes, yet the sound is constant? Does it seem that your ADSR envelope is ineffective? If so, it may me your VCA GAIN fader. I'd recommend setting this fairly low, as having this up increases the gain on your unit and causes a 'hold' like behaviour. Let me know if this is not the cause.
      • June 22, 2020
    • JeffPorrello
      JeffPorrello Hi Joe, thanks for trying to help. Yes, pitch changes when a new note is pressed. The ONLY sliders open are VCO 1 (1/2 way), VCF Freq (1/2 way), and VCA Gain (1/2 way). All notes stick regardless of where you position these basic sliders. The synth (as set above) is in its most basic form whatsoever for making any kind of sound, so this should NOT be happening. I don't know enough about MIDI to send an all notes off message or Sysex messages, but do know something’s up here.

    • JeffPorrello
      JeffPorrello Hi Joe! Pilot Error!! I did not realize there were two VCA sliders. I was using the one named "VCA GAIN" which was keeping any notes played continuing to play. The one immediately below it was the one I should have been using ( VOLTAGE CONTROLLED AMPLIFIER) all along, so my fault!!!

    I recently purchased a CAT. I am used to finding a midi compatibility chart with any synth. What messages does the CAT respond to? I know it receives notes from a midi keyboard, what else? Where can I find this information? Thanks.

    • KipChatterson
      JoeRivers96 Hi Kip - the CAT responds to MIDI note information only. All other communication is done via Sysex, which is also captured via the SynthTool. The latest version of this can be found on the link below:

      • What midi does the Cat respond to?
        KipChatterson So is there a midi implementation chart somewhere? You said above, note only. Can we send it pitch bend? What other controls are available via sysex? I have a bcr2000 that can send sysex, would like to use it with the cat. Thanks.
