Referred to as the ‘Pioneer of techno in India’, Arjun Vagale, recently played at WOMB Tokyo. After his gig, Arjun caught up with the Behringer Japan team where he spoke about the music scene and music education in India. He also did a quick overview of the new Behringer DeepMind 12 synth!
The DeepMind 12 synth is said to be far more feature loaded than a Juno-106. The synth is encapsuled in a metal casing with wooden side panels which makes it quiet slick!
Behringer set out to create the ultimate analog polysynth with a 12-voice beast that can effortlessly deliver any classic synth sound you’ve ever heard — or imagined. It incorporates two digitally controlled analog oscillators and two LFOs per voice, three envelopes, a noise generator, unison mode with a handy detune fader, an extensive 8-bus modulation matrix, a 32-step sequencer, four digital FX engines, built-in Wi-Fi, a silky aftertouch-enabled keybed, and much more!
