Behringer DeepMind 12 - True Analog 12-Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer with Tablet Remote and Wi-Fi
The DeepMind 12 from Behringer is a true analog 12-voice polyphonic synthesizer well suited for professional musicians, synthesizer enthusiasts, or anyone looking to conjure up virtually any sound imaginable with finesse and ease. With two oscillators and two LFOs per voice, three ADSR envelope generators, four FX engines, an 8-channel modulation matrix, and a 32-step control sequencer, the DeepMind 12 offers complete control over your soundscape. Plus, the instrument features comprehensive remote control via iOS/Windows/Mac OS and selected Android apps over USB, MIDI, or via the built-in Wi-Fi.

Oscillator 1 generates sawtooth and square/pulse waveforms with pulse-width modulation, while oscillator 2 generates square/pulse waveforms with a unique tone modulation. With 24 oscillators at your disposal, a vast 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. Additionally, the instrument features sync, oscillator drift, and parameter drift, which help create the much-sought-after warmth and movement found in vintage analog synthesizers, but with improved stability and reliability.

Each LFO has a range that extends into audio rates and features adjustable slew rate, modulation delay, key sync, assignable clock sync (internal or external MIDI), envelope auto-triggering, and delay and fade-in. There are seven waveforms to choose from, including Sine, Triangle, Square, Ramp Up, Ramp Down, Sample and Hold, and Sample and Glide.

There are 3 four-stage envelope generators (ADSR) per voice, and each is equipped with continuously variable curves for highly flexible results. Envelope trigger modes include: Legato, Mono, and Retrigger, which can be triggered by key, individual LFOs, or the control sequencer, and looped well into audio rates.
The four simultaneous FX engines include over 33 professional algorithms from TC Electronic, Midas, and Klark Teknik. Each effect is custom-designed and physically modeled after some of the more sought-after processors. All effects run inside the low-latency environment of the DeepMind 12, ensuring high performance and flexible routing.

The eight-channel modulation matrix includes 19 modulation sources and 130 destinations, which provide a multitude of modulation options. Modulate the reverb tail or compressor with the modulation wheel, or drive a distortion effect with an LFO or via aftertouch. The "press & hold" shortcuts make selection of those sources and destinations quick and easy.

The control sequencer features an adjustable slew rate and MIDI sync, and it allows for a 32-step pattern of values, which can vary from -127 to 127. Other parameters that can be controlled include note value, tie and length, slew, and swing. These can all be mapped as modulation sources to any of the available destinations.
