The DeepMind 12 is still under development. Batt reviewed a prototype that is missing some features and has some fit/finish issues that Bheringer says will be improved in production models.
But, while there are still some details to be finalized, the core features of the DeepMind 12 are not expected to change before it goes into production. And Behringer expects that to happen before the end of this year.
The DeepMind 12 is shaping up to be a solid general-purpose analog polysynth, with pads being its strength. Batt notes a few weaknesses, including some play in the review model’s controls and the DM12’s lack of performance-oriented preset management. But the review makes clear that the DeepMind 12 is an impressive combination of power and affordability that establishes Behringer as a new option for synth buyers.
