Behringer Deepmind 12 Review February 12, 2019 16:35

The DeepMind 12D is a 12 voice analog poly-synth featuring Unison and a true bypass digital effects section.  Each voice features 2 analog DCO’s and an analog resonant lowpass filter, switchable between 2 and 4 poles.  There’s also a noise source though this is global and not per voice. There are 4 FX blocks for each preset, with 35 effects modules to choose from.

Review NI Massive July 27, 2015 13:21

At first glance it's easy enough to dismiss Massive with today's vintage analog style offerings. Computer power and analog modeling have come a long way since its release, but there is a huge world of sounds outside of what analog synthesis can provide and it's in that domain that Massive shines.
