Behringer has announced a new augmented reality interface for the DeepMind 12, at Synthfest in Sheffield UK. They describe it as ‘the world’s first augmented reality synth interface’.
‘Augmented reality’ is the idea of using computers to display 3D visualizations, in real time, over the world around you. Behringer’s system displays visualizations of things like the synth’s envelopes and the patch bay, which you can directly manipulate. It also can overlay information over the keyboard itself.
Details on the technical requirements for the DeepMind 12’s augmented reality interface are to be announced.
Check this video out and let us know what you think of the idea of expanding the controls for synths virtually, using augmented reality technology!
