Checking out the new firmware 1.1.0 for Behringer Deepmind 12 synthesizer. Looks like it is getting ready for polymode with the new Deepmind 12D and Deepmind 6 models coming out. There’s a few other bells and whistles:
► Poly Chord
► Chord Mode
► Ping pong delay
► Key range for chain-parameter
► VCA-MODE parameter “transparent” and “ballsy”
► and I might have found a small bug with the iPad app
Checking out the latest 2.0 firmware from Arturia for the BeatStep Pro controller & sequencer. But are these updates what we have been waiting for? Have they fixed the major issues? What are the new features like – do they work?
The video tests out MIDI timing, drum part mute, Korg Volca sync via sync cable, randomised octave pitch, Korg Volca Sample drum channel allocation and more – finished off with a little jam (of course)!
Hooked up to the BeatStep Pro are: Korg Volca Sample, Korg Volca Bass, Korg Volca FM, and Korg Volca Keys.
I’m using both MIDI and Clock Sync connections to synchronise the devices.
Ever wondered what to do with the 12 individual outputs on the Arturia Drumbrute? Same, so I took a look. At the same time I grabbed the Presonus Studiolive AR16 analog mixer – which boasts an 18 channel digital USB audio interface. Perfect for the job!
