Behringer’s newest bass synth, called the Toro is billed as an “authentic reproduction” of the Moog Taurus Version 1 from the mid-1970s.
According to Behringer, this is an accurate reproduction of the renowned Moog Taurus Version 1.
Behringer has chosen a comprehensive analogue signal route that includes two VCOs, a traditional low-pass ladder filter, and two basic envelopes. Because it is based on version 1, the output should be a distorted sawtooth waveform with no LFO. It features four presets on the front, which are Toro, Tube, Bass, and Variable Glide, and the two settings for volume and filter are now knobs rather than foot-sized sliders.
The synth has an entirely analogue signal path based on the original’s circuit designs, with two VCOs with a mixer, a classic-sounding ladder filter, and four presets – Toro, Tuba, Bass, and Variable Glide – each with an amount slider and a dedicated on/off button.
– Authentic recreation of the circuits from the legendary ‘Taurus I*’ bass synth
– Pure analog signal path based on authentic VCO, VCF and VCA designs
– 2 VCOs for massive detuned sounds and octave control for intervals
– 5-octave range for earth- shaking bass as well as searing lead sounds
– VCO A and B mix fader for full control of the internal balance
– Classic low-pass ladder filter for ‘that’ sound with Cut-off and Emphasis controls
– Envelopes for filter cut-off and amplitude for creative sound shaping
– 4 magic-sound presets: Toro, Tuba, Bass and Variable Glide featuring Amount slider and a dedicated On/Off button
– Big Filter cutoff and Volume knobs for quick and easy tweaks
– CV, Filter cutoff and Gate inputs for external control
– 16-unit Poly Chain allows combining multiple synthesizers for up to 32 voice polyphony
– Complete Eurorack solution – main module can be transferred to a standard Eurorack Case
– 23 controls give you direct and real-time access to all important parameters
– Comprehensive MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and Voice Priority selection
TORO is equipped with all of the original parameter controls found on the historic model, as well as the same famous sounds, but with modern-day dependability and connection – all in a form-factor that fits inside modern-day setups due to being desktop, rack-mount, and completely Eurorack compatible.
”TORO is the synth with the sound of a bull”, says one Behringer enthusiasts.

It includes a full MIDI implementation with MIDI channel and voice priority option, according to Behringer. Nonetheless, MIDI CC for all parameters is likely to be absent. It was also true of the other all-analog Eurorack synthesizers.
Toro also includes a poly chain function with 16 units, allowing you to create the ultimate Toro Synthesizer with up to 32 voice polyphony. Please make a video if you do this in the future; I’d love to see and hear it.
According to Behringer, “Toro is an authentic recreation of the legendary Moog Taurus Revision 1. The synthesizer is fully developed and once we get the chips, it’ll ship asap. Price? Retail US$ 199.”
