Music Tribe and Behringer have launched an initiative bringing 1,510 MS-1 synths to underprivileged children around the world. Ensuring kids will have all they need to start playing, each also comes with a pair of headphones.

Sharing the news on Instagram today (5 April), Behringer wrote: “We are very happy to share this news and like to thank all our Tribers who worked real hard to make this project come true. It took over a year to go through hundreds of charity organisations and select the ones that meet our cause.”

According to Ask.Audio, 600 synths were shipped to South America, 400 to Europe and 160 to Africa. The remaining 350 were split between Australia, Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Turkey, Ukraine, Moldova, Japan and Indonesia.

Some of the charities Music Tribe teamed with include the Music For Life Africa Foundation, Save The Music in the US and Music For All in the UK.

The Behringer MS-1 (formerly MS-101) is an analogue monosynth offering four waveforms, a step sequencer, 32-note keyboard and more. It’s a reproduction of the Roland SH-101 and usually retails for £215.

In other Behringer news, the brand is currently working on its reproduction of the Korg PolySix. The brand announced the Polyeight on Friday (2 April), sharing it was now in an “early prototype” phase.
