Key point: more synths to come, they are all in, and they will be looking at what users want. He mentions creating products from $49 up.
"Uli Behringer's interview at the Pre-NAMM Synth-A-Thon where he talks about his early beginnings as a musician, and the evolution of DeepMind12.
Uli's first introduction to music was through his father, who had a church organ in the house that had 1200 pipes. It was his passion and spent his life building it. During this time as Uli was a young boy, he learned from him and carried the torch on.
The first piece of musical equipment Uli ever made was a synthesizer when he was 16 years old.
Then in the 80's, he was in a jazz band, studying sound engineering and piano in Germany. He was a struggling musician playing jazz in bars with friends, during the day studying. His good friend Harold was into Frank Sinatra which inspired Uli's passion for his music.
All these moments lead up to Uli building the DeepMind12.
He worked with the MIDAS developers in Manchester about building a new synthesizer. The team there built something quite incredible with amazing features like augmented reality.
Pete Sandler was one of the key developers, and the DeepMind12 is one of Uli's greatest products."
