It was for many visitors of the Superbooth 17 a little surprise to see a Behringer booth because they wasn’t on the official developer list of this event. Some days before the event, Uli Behringer wrote in the Gearslutz forum that they try to get a little booth to show there some new products. In the final, the main two developers of the DeepMind 12 were at the Superbooth 17 and presented three new products. Beside the D Synth, the company show a compact version of the DeepMind 12, the DeepMind 6, a new polyphonic analog Synthesizer with 6 voices for only for 699$. On top, they presented the DeepMind 12 desktop version for 999$.
In my opinion, the DeepMind6 was a big surprise for many musicians and the most interesting news from Behringer. Although the D received a lot of attention at the booth, the DeepMind 6 is a very affordable analog synth with all the features of the big brother but in a compact format. For only 699$, you receive a 6 voice poly Synthesizer with excellent sounding effects from TC-Electronics and Klark Teknik. With the DeepMind6, Behringer has launched a cheap but well-sounding synthesizer on the market and at the same time started the fight with the competitor KORG and the Minilogue. Both synthesizers are in the same price range and I’m excited about the response from the Japanese company KORG per example. Will we see a Maxilogue with more than 6 voices for a very affordable price or not. The future will be very interesting with the new range of Synthesizers from Behringer. I’m looking forward to testing the DeepMind6 for you. Can’t guarantee it but hope I can do it.
