Product Description

The Kobol Expander from Behringer is a 2 voice fully analogue synthesizer. What makes this synth unique is the VCO waveforms can morph between all wave shapes found in the 2 analogue oscillators. Inspired by the sound of the 70’s, notable uses of similar synths from this period are, Vince Clarke, Vangelis, Jean-Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode, Peter Gabriel and Hans Zimmer.

Whilst being monophonic, The Kobol Expander does contain the ability to Poly Chain up to 16 Voices, you could get 3 of these to create your own 3 voice analogue synth, however you could also use other Poly Chain compatible devices to create your own unique analogue poly synth.

Key Features:

  • 32 CV Patch Points:
    The Kobol Expander has 32 patch points ready to go, incorporate your Eurorack instruments and CV capable equipment. CV allows you to expand and even combine units together, for example the Behringer Neutron can be expanded with the Kobol Expander. The unit is also in a Eurorack friendly form factor along with a lot of Behringer’s other equipment.
  • Sweepable waveshapes:
    The waveshapes can be swept (morphed) between the different waves. A lot of other synths allow you to select different waveshapes via a selection. The Kobol Expander allows you to morph between them, giving you the ability to have total freedom and fall upon new waveforms, total sonic freedom.
  • External Audio processing:
    The Audio input allows you to route audio through the units circuity. Allowing you to add the Kobol’s analogue saturation to beef up another synth, or even add some dirt and grit to a drum beat.

Lovely sounding oscillators and filter. Control voltage patch points give endless possibilities of controlling nearly every aspect of the synth

As with all Behringer gear its a great build, this was my first non Roland, Yamaha etc synth (Yes I know its a clone of a French synth) but the Kobol is an amazing box of tricks and the scope for sound creation is vast.

It's quite easy to get great and useful sounds out of that unit, and I even didn't try all it's features by now.

The Kobols a crazy synth for the money , i worked and owned vintage synths going back 30 years now and this one i wanted to try just to see how they cracked it and they did really . For the price its a really good sounding signal that comes out . The oscillators are really quite unique and as fat as my mother in laws **** on a sunny day .
