The Behringer Deepmind 12 is an all-analog synthesizer with 12-voices and full polyphony. Each voice features two oscillators alongside two LFOs. It also has three envelope generators, each of which can be routed to control filters, volume, and just about any other timbral setting via the Deepmind 12’s integrated modulation matrix. Additionally, the unit’s 32-step sequencer offers precise control over sequence pitches and modulation. Want effects? No problem. The Deepmind 12 boasts four effects engines that are the result of a collaboration between T.C. Electronics and Klark Teknik FX. There’s also an intuitive arpeggiator with a dedicated tap tempo button and user-configurable modes. It should also be mentioned that the entire synthesizer can be controlled with a tablet over WiFi!
All of this is housed inside a robust chassis with straightforward front panel layout featuring an LCD display with corresponding encoder, data sliders, and navigation switches. Rounding out this impressive array of features is a semi-weighted 49-note keyboard with aftertouch and velocity sensitivity.

Some Behringer Deepmind 12 Presets and Sounds
A demonstration of a handful of presets from Behringer’s Deepmind 12 synthesizer shows how this 12 voice analog polyphonic keyboard (with built in effects) can do everything from pads and polyphony to 12 voice unison detuned basses and drones.
The Deepmind 12, the first synthesizer produced by Behringer, is a fully analog 12-voice polyphonic synthesizer. It is a massive synth, with two oscillators and two LFOs per voice. Three envelope generators can be patched to volume, filters, or other timbral effects using the 8-channel modulation matrix, or sequence pitches or modulation using a fully featured 32-Step sequencer. It contains four FX engines made by T.C. Electronics and Klark Teknik FX, to provide instant access to reverbs, delays, etc... Last but not least, the Deepmind can be controlled remotely via tablet utilizing Wifi.
