Get one. No regrets. All the fun
DavidJGL, 10.03.2019
This is a quick review on the replacement unit I got from Thomann, given the first one had a very bad Keyboard, faulty Mod Wheel, a nick on one of the side cheeks and some glue underneath the unit [plus sometimes the notes wouldn't trigger]. So, if you happen to get a faulty unit, just contact Thomann and they will send a replacement back to you.

All that aside, I still have to coment on Behringer's first outing on the Synth world. They did a fantastic job with the DeepMind [as a modern take on the classic Juno] by souping it up with an 8 slot Modulation Matrix [with a hell lot of sources and destinations] and a whole plethora of TC Electronic and Klark Teknik's FXs [4 slots for those that you can set in anyway you want] as well as wifi and a nifty [yet not essential] App.

Don't let the fact that it "only" has 2 Oscilators [the first with an ON or Off Sawtooth and a PWM; while the second has PWM and a sub] fool you; because you can definetly sculpt a lot of sounds with those.

Add to that the 2 and 4 Pole Low Pass Filter [and a High Pass with added Boost to the low end], the 3 Envelopes [1 of them being a Mod Envelope], 2 LFOs, Arpeggiator and Mod Sequence and you are presented with A LOT of analog synth for a VERY affordable price.

The Pros:

- All that was said above PLUS it being made of metal.

The Cons:

- IMO the weakest link in the unit is the keybed. It's very light to touch [when compared to the Ultranova I also own, as an example]; they did cut a corner there.
- Although the DM is based on the Juno, it would have been cool if Behringer added an extra Waveform on OSC 2 for some extra variety. You can get a second Sawtooth with some fx trikery, but a Triangle or even a proper Saw would be cool.
- No audio In means no fun getting an external device though the fx of the DeepMind.


All in all, Behringer knocked it out of the park and slapped many nay sayers with a glove.

Decent sound, good feel, good features
makoivis, 15.01.2019
The good:

The keybed is great, same keybed as the OB-6. Good feel even though I prefer the stiffer yamaha keybeds. Aftertouch has a controllable range.

Voice calibration is dead easy. VCF tuning may need occasional calibration if you use self-resonance for bell sounds, but this is a quick process.

There's very little menu diving. The most common controls are on the panel, and the most common options are on the first page of the menu. Lots of thought has gone into this and the result is easy to use.

Modulation is easy to set up. Hit mod button, pick mod slot, hold down mod button, nudge the source, nudge the destionation, adjust depth and done.

Envelopes have retrig. No note sequencer, but the arpeggiator is flexible and the control sequencer is useful. Control sequences can't be saved and shared across patches AFAIK, but arpeggio patterns can.

Preset management via the app is okay. Not the best, but far more convenient than faffing about with sysex.

The bad:

The second oscillator doesn't do a saw wave. In practice you can deal with this by using two voices in unison. This means the DM12 is definitely the one to get over the DM6, so you can still have six voice polyphony.

The volume of the patches is a bit all over the place, and you can't store main volume per patch, only VCA volume, which in turn changes the character of the sound. Volume can range 15dB or more between patches. Luckily the front panel volume knob is conveniently placed on the left hand control section.

The sound:

The bass sounds aren't the beefiest, you need to find a sweet spot to get truly nasty bass sounds. However, pads, arps and plucks are easy to make and sound great. Creating patches is a ton of fun and the sounds are inspiring. Most of the built-in patches are a bit naff, but if you know anything about subtractive synthesis it's dead easy to dive in and start building your own library.
