Behringer Deepmind 12

price: 700€ / manual / schematics  (2016)


Overview and synthesis

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


Filter, EG and LFO

FILTER The resonant (up to auto osc) bipolar lowpass filter can set at either 2 or 4 poles with octave tracking. 

ENVELOPE 3 generators  Filter, Amplifier and Modulation.
EG modulation can be assigned to any paramaters in a special matrix modulation

LFO 2 digital modulators with delay (up to 7 seconds) with same 0.041 Hz ->  65.4 Hz frequency range.  
There are 7 shapes (sine, triangle, square, ramp, saw, random stepped, random smooth) with special smooth edge functions, finally,  frequency can be synched to internal masterclock (eg. arpeggiator)

Arpeggiator,  effects and memory

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
