    Hi, this is Paul from Music Tribe. We have been recently made aware that people have been questioning Uli Behringer’s promise to donate 1,000 synthesizers to Children in Need around the world.

    I am personally in charge of this project, as it is not only very dear to my heart but also incredibly important to Uli. We have been diligently working on this project for months, and will absolutely deliver on our promise to provide synthesizers to children’s charities and foundations. We have even increased the amount from 1,000 to 1,500 synthesizers to serve all of the many organizations below.

    Selecting the right organizations together with our global partners and going through proper due diligence, whilst overcoming the challenges of Covid this year, hasn’t been a simple task. This project has taken longer than we would have liked, but I can assure you that we have been very carefully selecting and approving charity organizations, which I am more than happy to share with you.

    We’re currently working directly with over 100 organizations around the world, many of which I have listed below. Given the nature of the charities and their commitment not to engage in any commercial activities, whilst also protecting the identities of the children they support, we did not want this to be turned into a marketing exercise, hence it all happened quietly in the background and without any publicity.

    I am personally saddened that this has now been turned into a public event. In order to verify any of my statements, please feel free to directly contact any of these organizations about our partnership. I am also very happy to facilitate any communication should you wish to: [email protected]

    We got some really good news. The firmware for the is now completed and we're moving closer to delivering this beautiful synth. However, to be clear, we're still many months away from delivery.
    Our next step is to build 50 pre-production samples and start an extensive test program with internal and external beta testers to ensure the synth will have undergone the most stringent quality testing. If you like to participate in the testing of the UB-Xa, come join the beta tester team. However, please note that there a critical requirements associated with this program.
    1. You do own an original Oberheim OB-Xa in order to do extensive comparisons.
    2. You have deep technical understanding and knowledge related to professional testing procedures and sound analysis
    3. You do own a video channel and you're willing to create several comparison videos.
    4. You're willing to create great sound patches with your name attached.
    If you meet these criteria, please contact us at [email protected] and provide us with detailed information related to the above 4 points. We will select max 20 beta testers and reward them with a free unit in return for their extensive efforts.
    We're super excited about this flagship synth. We know that it has taken much time, but we're very proud of our Manchester engineering team who have done an amazing job by creating a complete new technology platform, which will allow us to develop the next analog poly-synths in record time.
    We're just warming up:-)
    And one more thing. We have recently launched our Music Tribe market place where you can buy and sell equipment - all for free. Unlike eBay or Reverb, we take zero commission. Check out

    I'm using V 2.3.8. and it failed to detect my new TD-3. After the usual "change cable/change USB port/disconnect everything else/reboot etc" dance, I tried connecting my other Behringer devices. None were detected by Synth Tool (all were detected by Windows 10).

    I've made no changes and it did work with my CRAVE before.

    Suggestions appreciated.

      turtlemouth I tried installing Synth Tool on my Surface Pro and it detected my TD-3 instantly. Discovering the problem lay with my PC setup, I blindly fumbled until I found a post over at It seems Synth Tool doesn't like it when other USB MIDI devices are plugged into your computer. Once I turned off my MOTU, Synth Tool detected my TD-3 straight away.

      Kinda sucks that I have to alter my setup just so Synth Tool will play nice.

        RonaldFigura That's probably more of a Windows thing...

      JoeRivers96 Hi Ed, pleased to hear you have been able to solve this with a workaround. We wrote up an article of a few troubleshooting steps in case this helps you to alter your setup less.

    To anyone who could be of assistance,

    I'm new to synths as a whole for background. I recently (less than a month ago) bought a new behringer poly d. I'm trying to use a keyboard to amp setup and am having issues getting it to make any sound. 1/4 inch TRS cables and the power supply are connected. The light at the top left of the synth lights up when I push a key as well but the only thing I hear with the volume loud enough is the faintest, soft pop from the keyboard amp. I'm running into the same issue with headphones as well. Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      JoeRivers96 Hi Diego, Please ensure the following:

      You have switched your oscillators on using the red switches
      You have turned the volume up of each oscillator
      The filter mode is set to LO and the Cutoff frequency is up
      The main volume is turned up
      You have tested all outputs and headphones

      • Behringer Poly D: No sound issue
        diegojacuinde Hey Joe, I’ve done all the following and have made some progress. I still don’t have the sound coming through but instead of the faint pop in my amp, I can hear a “white noise” like humming whenever I hold the keys. Same frequency of him regardless of low or high note key. I’m not sure what else it could be. Thanks again for all the help.

      brianbfine Hey Diego - I work for Musician's Friend and I'm working with a gentleman that has the same exact issues that you described with his Poly-D - curious as to what finally made the Poly-D produce sound for you.

    • diegojacuinde
      RonaldFigura There are usually patch settings in the manual that should produce results.

    • diegojacuinde
      imsk111 My first guess. Distortion volume is very low (switch off distortion first). Oscillator Volumes are not fully turned up and output volume is only halfway up. Fixing all this should do the trick. In general go for the simplest sound first = no effects (distortion, chorus).

    I just updated to the latest firmware (1.0.2) and sad to see the CAT fixed on low note priority in mono mode now with no option to change it in synthtribe software. The bassline in this video was made on previous firmware and is now no longer possible because I am using overlapping (upward) notes that sound without triggering the envelope:

    I hope you will bring back the option to chose key priority in the next firmware update like you can in Model D and other synths.

      JoeRivers96 Hi, thank you for your suggestion. I will be sure to pass this over to our developers to consider in a future update.

    I got TD-3 connected with Studio one 4.7. 

    I use S1 as my sequencer, as I find it easier than using TD-3s or Synth Tool. 


    It is set to USB midi and my settings in S1 seem correct. I have deleted all patters on TD-3 and have inserted midi notes in S1.

    When I start S1, the TD-3 starts, as expected. However no sound is played. I then hit start/stop button on TD-3 and I can hear sound. Do I need to set some kind of "Local Off" on the machine? If so, how do I do that?

    • ericdeluxe
      Nigel67 Hi Erik, I have had a reply from our design team and I hope this answers your question.

      You do not need to play the local sequencer of TD-3, so the two methods below can work:

      Set unit to INT, MIDI or TRIG mode. The unit working in USB mode will play the local sequencer and SYNC with the USB MIDI clock sent by S1

      The S1 doesn't send MIDI clock

    Hello everyone, if you have a Behringer 2600 and you need a blank book to write down your patches I have created a patch book blank like the original ARP 2600 did. Feel free to use it. Enjoy ;)

    Hello, I am trying to control Crave from a midi expression pedal sending CCs as I do for other instruments from Elektron or Waldorf (they accept CCs 7 and 10 for volume and pan). Could the VCA Line of Crave be assigned to some CC and how to do it ? Thanks. Christian
    0 130
    • CSurieux
      JoeRivers96 Hi Christian - unfortunately the Crave cannot currently be controlled using MIDI CC messages due to the analogue nature of its circuit. This, however, may be considered for a future update.
