Same synth as the Deepmind 12 with half the voices (6) and no Wi-FI, but said to be the same otherwise. Even the patches are compatible. Note the images are of the DeepMind 12 till we get the official ones..
Behringer's new synthesizer called DeepMind 6 features 6 analog voices and 4 digital effects offering 30 algorithms from Klark Teknik and TC Electronic. The DeepMind 6 has 2 DCO's per voice, noise generator, Unison mode with a dedicated detune fader, three envelopes, two LFO's per voice and an 8-bus modulation matrix offering extensive control.
With the creation of DEEPMIND 6, the ultimate, true analog, 6-voice polyphonic synthesizer is finally a reality. Deepmind 6 allows you to conjure up virtually any sound you can imagine with unparalleled finesse and ease. Thanks to its 4 FX engines, dual analog OSCs and LFOs per voice, 3 ADSR Generators, 8-Channel Modulation Matrix and onboard 32-Step Sequencer, the Deepmind 6 gives you complete control over your soundscape. Plus, Deepmind 6 features comprehensive remote control via iPad*/PC/Mac and selected Android* Apps over USB, MIDI or built-in Wifi – for a custom-tailored workflow that lets your creative spirit soar to new heights!
Classic Polyphonic Synthesizer
The inspired synthesizer tracks laid down in the 1970s and '80s are etched in the annals of progressive rock and pop music forever, making them truly classic in every sense of the word. Deepmind 6’s pure analog signal path with legendary IR3109-style VCFs, stereo VCAs, and 6-voice polyphony lets you recreate all that magic or design the powerful, original sounds that just might make you a legend in your own right.
Glorious 6-Note Polyphony
Playing chords and building textural soundscapes requires the ability to generate multiple notes or sounds simultaneously. While early analog synthesizers were either monophonic (only 1 note at a time), or somewhat limited in the number of sounds they could produce at the same time, the Deepmind 6 boosts your creativity with 6-note polyphony. Each voice has 2 oscillators, with OSC 1 generating sawtooth and square/pulse waveforms with pulse width modulation, and OSC 2 generates square/pulse waveforms with a unique tone modulation. With 24 oscillators at your disposal, a tremendous range of options becomes available.
Oscillator modes : Unison 6,4,3,2 Mono, Mono -2, Mono 4, Mono 6, Poly, Poly6
Envelope Trigger Modes : Legato, Mono, Retrigger
The addition of oscillator sync, oscillator drift and parameter drift allow the recreation of the much sought after warmth and movement from vintage analogue synthesizers, without the inherent unreliability and instability.
Plus, the oscillators can operate in sync mode to expand the tonal palette dramatically.
Individual voices also have 2 LFOs (Low-Frequency Oscillators) with a range that extends into the audio rate. Each LFO has adjustable slew-rate, modulation delay, key sync, assignable clock sync (internal or external MIDI), envelope auto-triggering, as well as Delay and Fade in. The 7 available waveform shapes are; Sine, Triangle, Square, Ramp Up, Ramp Down, Sample and Hold, and Sample and Glide, for an amazing array of tonal options. The Deepmind 6 offers a highly unusual Phase Link option for the polyphonic LFOs allowing them to operate in Unison (Mono) or link with an adjustable phase shift between voices. The LFOs are also capable of tracking key pitch using the mod matrix, this allows for cross mod type effects.
3 Envelope Generators
When it comes to envelope generation, Deepmind 6 has all the bases covered, thanks to 3 four-stage ADSR (Attack, Decay, Sustain, Release) envelope generators per voice, each equipped with continuously-variable curves for truly unique flexibility. Deepmind 6 serves up all the versatility and tone-sculpting options a professional musician could ask for!
The Deepmind 6 has 3 four stage ADSR envelopes per voice. Unusually each stage has a continuously-variable curves allowing for a great deal of enveloped flexibility. The DEEPMIND has very flexible envelopes being able to be triggered by Key, each LFO or control sequencer, additionally the envelopes can be looped well into the audio rate.
8-Channel Modulation Matrix
Want to modulate the reverb tail or compressor with the mod wheel? How about the drive of our Midas Multiband distortion with an LFO or aftertouch? you are only limited by your imagination with the modulation possibilities of the Deepmind 6. With 19 modulation sources and more than 130 destinations we have truly provided deep modulations options; with press and hold short cuts we've made selection of those sources and destinations quick and easy.
Deepmind 6's modulation matrix expands your artistic creativity with up to 19 modulation sources that can be mapped to more than 130 destinations – even FX parameters! From the simple and sublime, to the outrageously complex, Deepmind 6's 8-channel modulation matrix provides virtually-limitless modulation options – all just waiting for your exploration.
32-Step Control Sequencer
The control sequencer features an adjustable slew rate, MIDI sync, and allows a 32-step pattern of values, which can vary from -127 to 127. Other parameters that can be controlled via the sequencer include: note value, tie and length; slew; and swing. These can all be mapped as modulation sources to any of the available destinations. The envelopes also have a mode to drive directly from the control sequencer.
Comprehensive remote control is available for Deepmind 6 via iPad*/PC/Mac and selected Android* Apps over USB, MIDI or built-in WiFi for extended parameter control. The iPad App also features a robust preset manager, gig list full editor and integral Patch Morpher*.
The keyboard features 49 full-sized keys with velocity and aftertouch that deliver an expressive and superior playing experience. You’ll love the feel and playability of Deepmind 6’s semi-weighted keys as they respond to even the slightest nuance of your playing. Aftertouch allows you to imbue your sound with variations of pitch, volume, modulation or color – whatever parameters you choose. Whether you have a heavy or soft playing style, Deepmind 6 always responds to your touch with 3 different select-able velocity and aftertouch curves. Add to this spring-loaded pitch and assignable modulation wheels, and you’ve got the ultimate hands-on live performance and studio-ready synthesizer.
Dual Analog Oscillator Signal Path
A modern reincarnation of a beloved analog classic (with by-passable studio-grade FX), all of Deepmind 6's sounds are purely analog – all the way from OSC 1, which generates sawtooth and square/pulse waveforms with user-definable pulse width modulation (PWM) and OSC 2, which generates square/pulse waveforms with tone modulation. The combination of square/pulse on oscillator 1 and Tone Mod on oscillator 2 gives the DM6 a unique and fresh character unheard in current synthesizer architectures.
Big, Fat Tones
Everything about the Deepmind 6 has been designed to give you total control over the creative process, or as we like to call it... making music! That goes for the selectable, dual slope 12/24 dB analog low pass filter with adjustable resonance and tracking (per voice), and Envelope faders that smoothly transform individual segments of the envelope between linear, exponential and reverse exponential curves. Plus, you can use employ powerful unison and poly modes with detune, pan spread and drift parameters that can handle up to 6 voices per note for incredibly fat tones. And if you want even more, why not engage the global noise generator to dramatically expand your waveform options. Deepmind 6's extreme versatility empowers you to be your creative best!
There are a lot of amazing features in the Deepmind 6 that are virtually unheard of in this class, including several that really deserve being called, "special". While most synthesizers only allow mono portamento glides, the Deepmind 6 lets you create stunningly smooth mono and polyphonic glides that will really get your juices flowing! Plus, you get 33 studio-grade effects designed by some of the world's best sound designers ?all of which can be modulated, thanks to the flexible 8-channel modulation matrix with 19 sources and over 130 destinations.
A very sophisticated Arpeggiator is also provided, complete with a tap tempo button and user-configurable pattern modes that exhibit a level of refinement previously only available from a sequencer. Another powerful feature allows you to write extremely complex polychords into memory locations ?and then perform them with the press of a single key. And if your creation calls for room-shaking bass lines, you're gonna love the boost switch on Deepmind 6's variable 6 dB high pass filter. Add to this unison and poly modes with detune, pan spread and drift parameters for up to 6 voices per note ?and you've got the tools to tap into your full potential. It's what separates the Deepmind 6 from the competition!
You Are Always in Control
We can't help ourselves ?like you, we're gear-heads, too!

The FX Racks
We also included 4 simultaneous FX engines with over 33 world-class TC ELECTRONIC, MIDAS and KLARK TEKNIK algorithms – including Reverb, Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Delay, Multiband Distortion, and many more. Custom-designed and physically modeled after some of the most iconic and sought-after processors, Deepmind 6’s FX were essentially “rebuilt” in the digital domain – and put right at your fingertips. All effects run inside the low-latency environment of the Deepmind 6, ensuring flawless performance, flexible routing – and the end of cable faults forever!
The Lexicon 480L* has been recognized as the gold standard of digital reverb, and we have included five of the finest reverb models: HALL, AMBIENT, RICH PLATE, ROOM and RICH CHAMBER. These models precisely capture all nuances based on our “True Physical Modeling” and our algorithms even incorporate the unit’s AD/DA gain stepping converters – nailing the entire analog and digital circuit paths, right down to the last detail. (Inspired by Lexicon 480L*)
Based on the legendary EMT250, the VINTAGE REVERB delivers a shimmering, bright reverb that won’t drown out or overpower your live/recorded tracks. Use the VINTAGE REVERB to sweeten vocals and snare drums without sacrificing clarity. (Inspired by EMT250 Plate Reverb*)
PLATE REVERB emulates the characteristics of a plate reverb chamber with control over the damping pad, modulation depth and speed, and crossover. PLATE REVERB will give your tracks the sound heard on countless hit records since the late 1950s. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70*)
Our GATED REVERB recreates the sound achieved by combining a reverb with a noise gate, and is especially effective for a 1980s-style snare sound or to boost the presence of a kick drum. (Inspired by Lexicon 300/480L*)
REVERSE REVERB puts the reverb tail in front of the sound source, creating a swelling crescendo that adds an ethereal quality to vocal and snare tracks. (Inspired by Lexicon 300/480L*)
Taking up only one FX slot, the CHORUS & CHAMBER effect combines the shimmer and doubling characteristics of a studio-grade chorus with the sweet sound of a traditional chamber reverb. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70*)
Here we combine DELAY & CHAMBER, so that a single device can provide a variety of delay settings, plus add just the right type and amount of reverb to the selected signal. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70*)
FLANGER CHAMBER combines the mind-bending, filter-sweeping effect of a state-of-the-art flanger with the elegant sweetening of a traditional chamber reverb ?all in one FX slot. (Inspired by Lexicon PCM70*)
The 4 BAND EQ is a sweep parametric equalizer, and is taken directly from the MIDAS PRO X Live Digital Console. The bands are low, low mid, high mid and high, with the mid bands using a Q Factor adjustment to custom-tailor the sound. Any combination of the four bands may be used simultaneously.
STEREO ENHANCER lets you emphasize the Bass, Midrange and Hi output at selectable frequencies, for maximum punch, clarity and detail ?without turning up the overall volume. (Inspired by SPL Vitalizer*)
The Fairchild 670 tube compressor not only achieves record bids in high-end vintage gear auctions, it also delivers some of the finest colorations in compressor history. Two small trim VR’s preset the control side chain action, a six-step switch determines the timing, and the two large Input and Threshold knobs adjust the levels. Our FAIR COMPRESSOR model is true to the original signal path, and conveniently provides models for dual, stereo-linked or mono and stereo operation. (Inspired by Fairchild 670*)
MIDAS MULTI-BAND DISTORTION is ideal for making the sound gritty, adding more warmth through saturation, or even enhancing a specific frequency region. With 6 distortion types to choose from, you can go from softly-saturated to ultra-aggressive distorted tones – and everything in-between.
The RACKAMP simulates the sound of plugging your instrument (or sound) into a real amplifier. From shimmering cleans to saturated crunch, the RACKAMP allows you to sound great – without using an amp on stage. (Inspired by Tech 21 SansAmp*)
The EDISON EX1+ is the reincarnation of one of our own analog classics. This remarkably-effective tool allows manipulation of the stereo field. Selectable M/S input/output modes allow the processing or creation of mono or stereo sound sources. (Inspired by BEHRINGER EDISON)
AUTO PAN creates an up and down volume change at a constant and even tempo, just like the guitar amps of yesteryear. Use the AUTO PAN to add a unique “surf-music” texture to your performance.
The NOISE GATE block sounds from passing that are below the applied threshold level, without reducing overall dynamics thanks to our proprietary Transient Accenting technology.
STEREO DELAY provides independent control of the left and right delay times and features high and low pass filters for enhanced tone shaping of the affected signals. Use the STEREO DELAY to give your mono signals a wide presence in the stereo field.
The 3-TAP DELAY records the input signal and then echoes it back after a user-definable period of time and number of repeats. What makes the stereo and triple delay useful and outstanding is the linked tap-timing and musical choice of echo patterns. Use the 3-TAP DELAY to fatten up vocals and instruments, or to add an enhanced spatial element to any performance.
The 4-TAP DELAY records the input signal and then echoes it back after a user-definable period of time and number of repeats. What makes the stereo and quadruple delay useful and outstanding is the linked tap-timing and musical choice of echo patterns. Use the 4-TAP DELAY to fatten up vocals and instruments, or to add an enhanced spatial element to any performance.
TEL-RAY ECHO DELAY features an incredibly simple set of knobs that allow you to create delay, echo, chorus, vibrato and reverb type effects ?all in one handy device. (Inspired by original 1960's Tel-Ray gear)
MODULATION DELAY combines three of the most used time modulation effects into one easy-to-operate unit. Enjoy true-stereo delay with a lush and spacious chorus, topped off with three reverb models to choose from.
STEREO CHORUS samples the input, slightly detunes it and mixes it with the original signal to produce a somewhat thicker, shimmering sound. Use it to fatten up background vocals, or to double the sound of brass and woodwind instruments.
The DIMENSIONAL CHORUS is the perfect emulation of what has been referred to as “the best analog chorus unit ever created”. Four simple Mode preset buttons activate amazing effects, best described as “space” and “dimension”. Absolutely faithful to the original, multiple preset buttons can be pressed simultaneously. (Inspired by Roland Dimension D Chorus*)
The STEREO FLANGER emulates the phase-shifting sound (comb-filtering) originally created by applying pressure against the flange of the reel on a tape recorder. This effect creates a unique “wobbly” sound that is quite dramatic when used on vocals and instruments.
A STEREO PHASER, or phase shifter, applies multiple stages of modulated filters to the input signal to create a “notch” in the frequency response, and then blends it with the original for a “swirling” effect. Use the STEREO PHASER to add a “spaced-out” sound to vocal or instrument tracks.
The MOOD FILTER uses an LFO generator and an auto-envelope generator to control a VCF (voltage-controlled filter), as well as a side chain function where the channel B signal controls the envelope of channel A.
The DUAL PITCH SHIFTER allows you to add up to two additional notes to the original signal to create harmony. It can also be used with only a minor pitch adjustment to create much thicker sounds, often referred to as “voice doubling”.
ROTARY SPEAKER emulates the sound of a Leslie rotating speaker and is most commonly associated with an organ or guitar. This version provides much more flexibility than its electro-mechanical counterpart, and can be used with a variety of instruments (even vocals) to create a whirling, psychedelic effect.
