KEYBOARD The deepmind 12 is a budget hybridanalog/digital 4 -octaves polysynthesizer ispired by classic iconic Roland Juno-106 but based on Smd circuits. The machine features a basic 128 x 96 display and 2 wheels for pitch and modulation.
The desktop module is the Deepmind 12D and also a stripped-down version Deepmind 6
SYNTHESIS 2 syncable DCO (no detune however) + pink noise generator
DCO1: sawtooth and pulse/PWM waveforms,
DCO2: only a square wave, but you can alter the duty cycle / symmetry with the TONE MOD function
Voices can be stack in different ways (but the machine is monotimbric): Poly, Unison-2, Unison-3, Unison-4, Unison-6, Unison-12 (stacks 2, 3, 4, 6 o 12 voices for each note), Mono, Mono-2, Mono-3, Mono-4, Mono-6, Poly-6 and Poly-8
ARPEGGIATOR 11 modes, latch mode, master clock sync, clock divider (from 1/2 to 1/48) and special swing mode.
Up to 32 patterns with 32 steps each ; also special CHORD mode and CONTROL SEQUENCER to record also modulation parameters for some pattern sequence (eg. VCF).
FX 4 fx slots based on TC ELECTRONIC and KLARK TEKNIK effects at 24 bit/48kHz based on 10digital algorithms.
Many effects have name that recall famous machines like TC Hall Of Fame, Lexicon 480L, EMT250, Lexicon PCM-70, Lexicon 300/480L, Midas ProX, SPL Vitalizer, Fairchild 670, Tech21 SanSamp, Edison EX-1, Beringer X32, Tel-Ray Delay, Decimator Delay, Roland Dimension D, Leslie.
MEMORY It can holds 1204 patches organized into 8 banks (128 per bank), there are not ROM presets, but you can recall them anytime.
Deep mind has its own free software for edit
