’Tis the season for new synths, it’d seem. But Behringer? Interesting. The DeepMind 12 — naming isn’t Behringer’s strong suit — is the company’s first ever analogue synth, recently released by the company with appropriate fanfare. The polyphonic synth is capable of an impressive array of sounds and control. The central screen’s scrollable menus give visual feedback for the parameters you’re toying with. Uli Behringer: “With approximately 4000 components, the DeepMind12 is one of the most complex synthesizers that has ever been built. Due to its discrete design structure, it has vastly more components than you will likely find in any of the current synthesizers on the market.” DeepMind 12 is also the first synth to feature wireless tablet control. A rack-mount version is to follow.
