Here’s what Swan has to say about the video:
Rather than looking at every single feature of the DM12, it compares the basic building blocks of the sound – DCOs, VCF, VCA, Envelopes – of each synth. Personally I think they are pretty similar, but the DM12 has a few interesting advantages, and that’s before you even get to more advanced modern features such as the modulation matrix or the effects section.
The Juno is a classic synth, but the DM12 easily stands up to the Juno in my view. And whilst I’m not ready to get rid of my Junos (I do use them an awful lot!) I’m certainly going to be using the DM12 in place of the Juno for live duties, and for doing lots of things the Junos can’t.
This video has been made partially as a response to some of the negative comments that people (most of whom have never played the synth) have been making about the DM12.
My experience of using the DM12, its sound and build quality, and my dealings with Behringer and Midas, have been nothing but positive.
