The Cat's out of the bag.
Jack B. Nimble, 21.03.2021
My favorite Behringer clone so far. Build quality is solid, knobs and faders feel good and consistent in tension. The SUB OCTAVE feature on both VCOs is fantastic. The way waveforms can be faded in and out makes this synth unique, user-friendly, and fun. I'm able to tune in usable sounds effortlessly because of the VCO design. The modulation is fairly straight forward and best of all, it does not shed, it doesn't require cat food, no litter to clean. Let it warm up and hear that kitty ROAR!

Good retread of the original - studio only though
Leni_J, 30.06.2020
Great engineering here - they have all of the functionality (and the look and feel) of the original and although it is necessarily made on the cheap so the knobs and sliders don't feel great, it is nonetheless a powerful piece of kit. The controls are much smaller than on the original, which makes it fiddly to use in a keyboard rig (for me anyway), and the whole thing is rather lightweight so needs strapping down onto an appropriately angled surface - not easy. I don't think it's good for a live environment without some serious extra work. The analogue interfaces seem to work OK (3.5mm jacks though, so some bespoke cabling needed to connect up to the rest of the oldskool analogues) . Unit ships with the usual amateur wall-wart power supply (particularly annoying for UK customers is the clumsy and ill-fitting europlug adapter which is the ultimate in cheapskate shortcuts - it's the proverbial "ha'p'worth of tar".). For this price, though, it's a no-brainer to fatten things up on your existing monosynth, whatever it is.

Плохая подделка
Ennu, 16.12.2020
Oscillator sync sounds like a braking stop, crackling sounds and the filter is just awful. A useless purchase, a widespread manufacturing defect.

Sounds die ich so noch nicht kannte
Richard990, 27.10.2020
Vorab kommt der CAT bei mir gelgentlich beim Sounddesign zum Einsatz, Richtung Tanzmusik.

Preislich schlägt Behringer ja gerade allen anderen den Boden unter den Füßen weg, was natürlich ein zweischneidiges Schwert sein kann.

Positiv:
-Das Konzept des zumischens jedes einzelnen Oszillators lernte ich schon beim Intellijel Atlantis zu schätzen. Vor allem weil es eine andere Herangehensweise ist als sonst üblich.
-Für mich persönlich habe ich einige Sounds entdeckt die ich so noch nicht kannte, vermutlich ist das die "ARP" Ähnlichkeit die dem Cat nachgesagt wird
-Er funktioniert , kostet nicht viel, braucht nicht viel Platz
- Ist besser verarbeitet wie Anfangs "befürchtet"

Negatives:
- Die Angst, das aufgrund des geringen Preises an Ecken und Enden gespart wurde die sich in Zukunft vllt. noch rächen.

Fazit:
Toller Synthesizer für wenig Geld, der Sound ist absolut in Ordnung, aber auch nicht so gut das einem die Kinnlade runterfällt.
Solides Gerät, ob es auch die Jahre überdauert wird sich zeigen.
