OVERVIEW

12-voice polyphonic synth with 2 OSCs and LFOs per Voice, 3 ADSR generators, 32-step sequencer and more.

DeepMind 12 is a true analog, 12-voice polyphonic synthesizer that allows you to design virtually any sound you can imagine. Thanks to its four FX engines, dual analog OSCs and LFOs per voice, three ADSR Generators, 8-Channel Modulation Matrix and onboard 32-Step Sequencer, DeepMind 12 gives you complete control over your soundscape. Plus, DeepMind 12 features comprehensive remote control via iPad/PC/Mac and selected Android apps over USB, MIDI or built-in Wi-Fi. This is the sound of the past, made for players and producers of today. 

Classic Polyphonic Synthesizer
The inspired synthesizer tracks laid down in the 1970s and '80s are etched in the annals of progressive rock and pop music forever, making them truly classic in every sense of the word. DeepMind 12’s pure analog signal path with legendary IR3109-style VCFs, stereo VCAs, and 12-voice polyphony lets you recreate all that magic or design the powerful, original sounds that just might make you a legend in your own right.

Glorious 12-Note Polyphony
Playing chords and building textural soundscapes requires the ability to generate multiple notes or sounds simultaneously. While early analog synthesizers were either monophonic (only 1 note at a time), or somewhat limited in the number of sounds they could produce at the same time, the DeepMind 12 boosts your creativity with 12-note polyphony. Each voice has 2 oscillators, with OSC 1 generating sawtooth and square/pulse waveforms with pulse width modulation, and OSC 2 generates square/pulse waveforms with a unique tone modulation. With 24 oscillators at your disposal, a tremendous range of options becomes available including the following oscillator modes: Unison 12, 6, 4, 3, 2 Mono; Mono -2; Mono 4; Mono 6; Poly; Poly 6, and Poly 8. The addition of oscillator sync, oscillator drift and parameter drift allow the recreation of the much sought after warmth and movement found in vintage analog synthesizers, with greatly improved reliability and stability.

The FX Racks
Behringer included four simultaneous FX engines with over 33 world-class TC ELECTRONIC, MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK algorithms – including Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Delay, Multiband Distortion, and many more. Custom-designed and physically modeled after some of the most iconic and sought-after processors, DeepMind 12’s FX were essentially "rebuilt" in the digital domain and put right at your fingertips. All effects run inside the low-latency environment of the DeepMind 12, ensuring flawless performance and flexible routing.

FEATURES
  • Classic polyphonic synthesizer with 12 true analog voices for insanely fat and authentic sounds
  • 4 simultaneous world-class TC Electronic and Klark Teknik FX with over 30 algorithms
  • Flexible 8-channel modulation matrix with 19 sources and over 130 destinations including effects parameters
  • 32-step control sequencer with adjustable slew rate and MIDI sync
  • Full remote control via iPad/PC/Mac and selected Android App over USB, MIDI or built-in WiFi

The Last Synth You Will Ever Need!

By A Lil Bit of Everything Guy

from New Mexico

Comments about Behringer DeepMind 12 True Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer:

This is the one! If you ever missed out on a jupiter 8, juno 106, prophet 5, minimoog or oberheim, the Deepmind 12 will more than satisfy! Near perfect warm, rich, analog sound! It's designed and built like the 1970's-1980's polyphonic analog synths. Controls are sliders instead of knobs! Very easy to understand control layout, and a breeze to program! Each slider does one specific function. No shift buttons on panel. Soft touch buttons instead of hard click tac switches that usually wear out in time after so many button presses. Big lcd display in black and white that shows all of your patch information, real wood sides, midi in-out , usb, and power cord, not lump line power supply or ac adapter wall wart. Beautifully lit control panel. Synth is made of aluminum not plastic. Deepmind 12 is heavy and built well! An analog synth of this quality cost five times as much in the 1980s. This is an extremely fair asking price for a synthesizer of this quality! 12 note polyphony-you can play full rich chords with both hands-Deepmind 12 blows Jupiter 8 away! 8 banks and each with 127 factory patches and all usable! Arpeggiator AND sequencer! I might not have to program any of my own sounds. Plenty of user slots too. Built in cooling fans. You can play 1980s mtv synth-pop, techno music, or hip hop with this synth, since the factory presets range from 1970s vintage to 2000's digital sounds. Get a Deepmind 12, and you will not need to search for a vintage retro synth ever again! And I forgot to mention extremely compact size just right for travel, and also high quality studiologic keybed.

Keybed has issues

By Cary

from USA

Comments about Behringer DeepMind 12 True Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer:

I got an earlier batch where keys started dangling. If you are an active player, wait for the module version and use with some external keybed (midi keyboard). There is also issue with black keys hitting metal frame but my device is ok in that regards. Registering product is pain. Getting service is pain. Company web site did not work well. Synth itself sounds great.

Tons of functionality, not great for live

    • Difficult to Use

    Best Uses

      Comments about Behringer DeepMind 12 True Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer:

      This synth is great if you want that voyager sound with a host of modulation and editing options. It sounds phenomenal, you can get some great bass and pad sounds out of it, the action is smooth, and it has the potential to generate some real out of this world sounds that no other synth on the market can match. Unfortunately, it's not very intuitive as a stage synth and not the most "musical" synth I've played. There's a lot of diving through menus to change sounds. I would rather have fewer options and more control over the sound. All and all, a great addition to your studio or to your stage rig if you don't plan on doing a lot of knob (excuse me slider) fiddling live, but as far as going off trail it's not very musical or intuitive.
