This video, via Rüdiger Gaenslen, compares the Behringer Deepmind 12 against Roland Jupiter 8.
While both synths sound good, the comparison highlights some differences, like the tendency for the Jupiter 8’s VCOs to have more tuning variance and drift, compared to the default on the DM12. Gaenslen also shares some tricks that he uses to get the Deepmind closer to the classic sound of the Jupiter 8, including detuning the oscillators and adding oscillator drift.
These tricks can help get more of a ‘vintage’ analog sound from other synths, too, along with introducing scaling imperfections and rolling off the high end a bit.
Check it out and let us know what you think of the comparison! And if you’ve got your own tips for getting a more classic analog sound from modern synths, share them in the comments!
