Pure analog bliss
Whether you’re crafting killer bass lines; glorious, celestial pads; or snarling, in-your-face leads, the Behringer DeepMind 6 is one of the best-sounding — and most versatile — polysynths we have had our hands on here at Sweetwater. This synthesizer is packed with Behringer’s best technology. The Curtis-style analog VCFs, stereo VCAs, and 12-voice architecture make it easy to re-create vintage synth magic or forge new sonic frontiers. Based on the chip design pioneered by the late Doug Curtis, the per-voice, adjustable-resonance, dual-slope-selectable 12/24dB VCFs sound incredible.
With its four effects engines, dual oscillators and LFOs per voice, three ADSR envelopes, 8-channel modulation matrix, onboard 32-step sequencer, and LCD display with encoder, navigation switches, and data slider, Behringer’s DeepMind 6 gives you the control you need for your soundscaping adventures. What’s more, the DeepMind 6’s built-in USB and MIDI offers remote control from your Mac, PC, and tablet, letting you custom-tailor a workflow that supports your creative process.
Start your (FX) engines
In the design of the DeepMind 6, Behringer spec’d four simultaneous effects engines with over 33 TC Electronic, Midas, and Klark Teknik algorithms. On tap and ready for deployment are studio-grade Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Delay, Multiband Distortion, and much more. Meticulously modeled on iconic hardware processors and tweaked to perfection, these effects run in DeepMind 6’s low-latency operating system, giving you flexible routing and consistent performance, with no cables to patch.
Lexicon and EMT onboard
The DeepMind 6 includes five impeccable reverb models — Hall, Ambient, Rich Plate, Room, and Rich Chamber — from the Lexicon 480L, a benchmark digital reverb unit. Thanks to Behringer’s True Physical Modeling, these models nail the complete analog and digital circuit paths — even the unit’s gain-stepping AD/DA converters, capturing every nuance precisely. Also onboard is Vintage Reverb, based on the fabled EMT250 plate, which serves up bright, shimmering ambience that won’t overwhelm or muddy your tracks — highly recommended for vocals and snare drum!
