    I don't know about you, but I've been having so much fun reading the latest Behringer thread that it's got me thinking about a game we can play... It's called "Is it Live or is it Behringer", and now you, the audience can play at home :hyper:

    Ok, there are two ways to play:

    1) Post the picture or website of a product that you believe Behringer has copied and see who is the first to find and post the Behringer product that was produced as a result.

    OR

    2) Post the picture of a Behringer product that you believe is a copy of someone elses work and see who is the first to find and post the product that was the inspiration for the "B" unit.

    Here's an example... Can you locate the Behringer version of this little gem?

    Wow, that's gonna be a tough one. So far the closest I've been able to find is this, but it not really a ripoff of it. Can you give us a hint, or is this one of their products that you don't believe is a copy?

    At least the casing isn't a shameless ripoff, but the design was taken from this. On the plus side however, Behringer added a compressor and gate to theirs ;)

    Here, try this one on for size.

    Most of Behringer's mixers started out as copies of the original Mackie designs (as many have already pointed out, Mackie sued Behringer and SamAsh over this back in the early nineties). Since then, their designs have evolved somewhat, but they're still considered the "low end" of the MI grade mixers.
