Paraphonic Analog and Semi-Modular Synthesizer with Dual 3340 VCOs, Multi-Mode VCF, 2 ADSRs, BBD Delay and Overdrive Circuit in a Eurorack Format.

The BEHRINGER NEUTRON lets you conjure up virtually any monophonic sound imaginable with incredible finesse and ease. The pure analog signal path is based on authentic VCO, VCF, VCA and state variable filter designs in conjunction with a flexible, multi-wave LFO and classic Bucket Brigade Delay (BBD). NEUTRON's Paraphonic mode allows both 3340 analog oscillators to be independently controlled for an expanded palette of tonal options. And when it comes to protection and convenience, the NEUTRON can be mounted in a standard Eurorack, making it ideal for the studio and/or the road. Owning a NEUTRON is like having your own personal time machine, enabling you to freely embrace the past or shape the future!

I got mine for $399, then it went to $472 and now its at $549. Great synth but its not getting BETTER. Why the massive increase over time like this. Model D too - Same exact situation.

Purchased from my local store about a month ago and have been glued to this thing since. Tons of tactile fun. If you're comfortable with subtractive synthesis and understand how signal paths work, the patch bay opens a ton of possibilities for advanced sound design. If you don't...it's a great piece to teach yourself on. The build quality feels solid. You can get sound of it right out of the box, but you'll want to pair it up with some type of Midi device with keys or a sequencer to actually play it. Or the fact that it's semi-modular, you can patch it into your Eurorack system or devices with controlled voltage. Can't say enough great things about it! Might get a second one and polychain them.

Product ExperienceI've tried it

Reminds me of a cross between an ARP 2600, early Rolands, with a dash of Moog. Easy to use, great oscillator and filter sections. The Mod Depth for the LFO is a bit touchy (too much too fast), but can be easily remedied by patching in the slew function (thank you Alex Anthron). From drones, to beats, to solos, this synth delivers rich sounds. While it sounds great without patching, the patching capabilities will give any advanced player much satisfaction. For the price, this is hard to beat. I'd like two of these, more fun than a 2600. Thank you Edmonton Downtown for renting me this synth.

Product ExperienceI've heard about it

I heard two demos of this new synth from Behringer. Just like their Model D, they have created another winner. I was hearing sounds that reminded me of something between my old ARP 2600 and Korg MS-20. With 32 knobs and a well laid out patch bay, you get a lot of synth for your money. From my decades of playing a variety of analog synths, I could do more with two neutrons than I could ever do with one ARP 2600, and for considerably less. This Neutron is on my to buy list.

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty.

Warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?

Performance Guarantee - normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage.

Product Replacement - if your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.

No Lemon Policy - your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.

Convenient - easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.

Guitar Setup - Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.

Loaners Available - a loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.

Power Surge Protection - your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.

Accessory Coverage - any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.

Commercial Use Coverage - music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.
 

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty.Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Accidental or cosmetic damage is not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

-----

Purchasing additional years of coverage

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

NEW products: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.

USED products: 4% of selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.

GUITARS: 4% of selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.

BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 up to $2,000 selling price. BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the selling price after $2,000. WOODWINDS: 4% of the selling price after $2,000.

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.
