" was live in Manchester to play Behringers DeepMind 12 Analog-Synthesizer and to have a long conversation with the engineers."

Before we get to the name, the DeepMind12 will feature a step sequencer / arpeggiator. See the screenshot below. We knew about the arpeggiator but weren't sure about a sequencer.

As for the name, note the Phat 12 in the image to the left.

According to the article:

"The wait is over, finally we can share our knowledge about the Behringer Deep Mind 12 Synthesizer with the public. At the time, when I the Behringer Synthesizer in Manchester / England met for the first time, he was still wearing the name PHAT 12. Regular readers may remember: 2010 had us Uli Behringer concerned with a concept study, as we on our TYRELL SYNTHESIZER project with the readers worked. Already this study was called PHAT 108 and was obviously inspired by the look of the Juno-106th

At that time was planned, an 8-voice replica of the Roland Juno 106 produce, but soon rejected Uli Behringer this idea, because with every thought and with every additional consultant was added a new feature. The project suddenly PHAT was 108 no small matter more, but a tremendous thing. Yet this was not foreseen in 2010, as the market would develop for real analog synthesizer."
