    Hi, this is Paul from Music Tribe. We have been recently made aware that people have been questioning Uli Behringer’s promise to donate 1,000 synthesizers to Children in Need around the world.

    I am personally in charge of this project, as it is not only very dear to my heart but also incredibly important to Uli. We have been diligently working on this project for months, and will absolutely deliver on our promise to provide synthesizers to children’s charities and foundations. We have even increased the amount from 1,000 to 1,500 synthesizers to serve all of the many organizations below.

    Selecting the right organizations together with our global partners and going through proper due diligence, whilst overcoming the challenges of Covid this year, hasn’t been a simple task. This project has taken longer than we would have liked, but I can assure you that we have been very carefully selecting and approving charity organizations, which I am more than happy to share with you.

    We’re currently working directly with over 100 organizations around the world, many of which I have listed below. Given the nature of the charities and their commitment not to engage in any commercial activities, whilst also protecting the identities of the children they support, we did not want this to be turned into a marketing exercise, hence it all happened quietly in the background and without any publicity.

    I am personally saddened that this has now been turned into a public event. In order to verify any of my statements, please feel free to directly contact any of these organizations about our partnership. I am also very happy to facilitate any communication should you wish to: [email protected]

    Hi, I am sure, Ulli Behringer is interested in every BUG in a TD3.

    i think he will never know - due to this non working ticket system.

    1. The slide function is not accessable via midi control.

    2. Slide speed is 4 times faster than with a tb-303 or any other clone in the world.TD3_vsTB03_CV_slide.png


    We need a firmware update. AND A FEEDBACK THAT YOU HEAR IT.
    Marco Mueller / Berlin / Germany

      they dont hear, and they dont want to hear. I will return the td-3.. 

      besides the slide behaviour is the smallest of the bugs..

      no1 is that writing of linked patterns is not working.. essentially crippeling the device to a one bar motiv only device.. inferior to the original 303, that does 4 bar motivs, and all good clones that do even 8 bars.. What is especially important on real time tap input, since this alows longer recording times and long held notes.. 





      • December 23, 2019
    • marco_m_berlin

      and just too add a few more.. in case i am wrong and they really have a look here.. in this most deserted forum on the globe..

      no2 heavy bug)

      wrong handling of the pitch memory.. 

      On the original 303 each bank shares a pitch memory.. each pattern has its own start within the pitch memory.. when the number of pitches is exceeded by the time infos, the rest if the pitch buffer is used.. parts of neighboring patterns.. That results in musical usefull results.. as longer you write one bank as more likely all pitches fit harmonical. even your own style gets visible in the additional pitches used. Thats part of the musical ghost of the 303.. the td-3 just inserts low c notes in any case it dont knows what pitch to use.. thats unmusical programming that leads in 100% of the cases to unmusical results, that need manual edit/ repair. A big workflow killer, that makes stage writing too risky to be performed. 

      3.2) transpose flags of pitch memory get lost when leaving write without doing a time write/edit routine

      4) pattern transpose not working when leaving write mode without stopping

      5) tap write in external sync bug

    It should let me configure the D, the Odyssey and the VC340.


    VC340: Synth found, but update not possible ("Failed, check network and press to retry")

    Model D: Synth is not found

    Odyssey: Synth is not found


    All synths are present in the device manager and can be played via MIDI or USB.

    • HeikoKnuettel

      It has nothing to do with the synths themselves but with some computer systems. I had the same problem. I closed all other audio us-drivers in the device manager, than the synths were recognised, I could update, I opened all drivers again...fine.

      I opened a case for it, the asked me for all details, they are aware of it and they are working on it. 

      Hope this also works for you. 

      • October 2, 2019
    • HeikoKnuettel

      Thank you very much, that worked!

      I hope they get rid of this auto-selection of synths. Even if it worked (which obviously isn't the case) it is annoying if you have more than one synth, you always have to turn the others off.

      • October 2, 2019
    • HeikoKnuettel

      It's not working here for me either. The Synth Tool sees that my Model D is connected, but when I click on "Update" all I see is version 1.1.1 and a box beneath that which says "Loading".

      Nothing happens for about a minute, then I receive the same message: "Failed, check network and press to retry."


      I've tried this on two separate PC's, both connected to the interent, and I get the same result on both machines. One is running Windows 10 64 Bit (latest version) and the other is running Windows 7 64 Bit (latest version). 

      • October 3, 2019
    • HeikoKnuettel

      Update doesn't work for me either, on none of the 3 synths. Deactivating other drivers helped so that the tool at least found them.

      I added a rule for the windows firewall, but to no avail, updating doesn't work.

      My D is on Firmware 1.1.1 too.

      • October 3, 2019
    • HeikoKnuettel

      It see's my Odyssey and I can change all the settings and sequences but when I go to the update page I just get ("Failed, check network and press to retry")

      Please release the OS updates seperately till the synth tool is fixed, and the rest of the settings as sysex

    Hi, Does anyone know where I find on my Deepmind 12D, the place where I can set Deepmind to receive an external clock source (via din midi in) , from an external hardware sequencer so that I am able to sync both devices tempo ? Cheers

        • June 13, 2020
    • Supa_Nubi
      RonaldFigura "MASTER BPM SOURCE ("MIDI" in the example diagram) - The Master BPM can be generated internally (shown as "INT"), or the DeepMind 12 can synchronize to an incoming MIDI clock signal from the MIDI IN socket (shown as "MIDI"), or USB ports (shown as "USB"). If the letters are inverted (white on a black background) then the clock is synchronised to the external source. If the letters appear as normal text the external source is not present and the DeepMind 12 will use its internal Master BPM until the external source is present. Note: The settings for the MIDI SYNC can be found in the EDIT page of the ARPEGGIATOR described later in this document.

    • Supa_Nubi
      Supa_Nubi Thank you for your response Ronald, much appreciated. I had looked at the manual, sorry should have said in my post and this still wasn't happening for me. Some patches did synchronise others didn't. I tested with 3 other external midi sources and 3 other cables. Still no joy. I fathomed it maybe an arpeggiator issue onboard the Deepmind. Since then I have not actually used the patches that wouldn't sync.

    • Supa_Nubi
      RonaldFigura Interesting that in this day and age of BPM , MIDI clock sync, backing tracks, etc., that Behringer let this one get away from them. Have you tried the support section that allows you to open a support ticket? Behringer can't fix these things if they don't know about them. Not sure if they have people monitoring the forums. Support might be worth a try.

        Supa_Nubi better news, after finding friends with external midi out gear..i finally found one that electribe sampler.. which gave me the white lettering on black background symbol and i can even change the bpm on the deepmind screen by turning the bpm on the electribe..this weirdly but happily for me seemed to kickstart my deepmind where i can now change and/or use the bpm from external still is a wee odd in that paired with some external devices, the bpm numerals on the deepmind screen do not change even though the actual sound has slowed or speeded up. but heh ho

    (cross post from a different forum section, thinking this is probably the more appropriate one)

    I recently got a Behringer Crave, and I want to play it with a wind controller via MIDI. I want to use some MIDI CC message from the breath pressure to control the filter cutoff. I can set this up by having the "Assign" CV output to a suitable CC (such as channel aftertouch or modwheel, I can use either), and patching "Assign" to "VCF Cutoff".

    However, when doing so, the filter modulation is very "chunky", it appears as if the CV value output is only updated on every sequencer step. I don't have the sequencer actually running, but turning the tempo knob changes the update rate (from "every couple of seconds" to "a couple dozen times a second"). Still, this is not nearly often enough to create a smooth filter sweep, and I would expect the CV value to change every time a MIDI message comes in, and not "quantized" by the sequencer.

    If I use a separate MIDI-to-CV converter or another synthesizer instead of the Crave MIDI in, and patching that to the CV inputs of the Crave, everything plays just fine and the filter sweep is nice, smooth and responsive.

    The other issue I have is with regards to pitch bend. When you play a note and then bend it, everything works fine. When you release the pitch bend wheel, it goes back to "zero bend". However, if you hold the pitch bend wheel and then play a note, things get weirder. Let's say you have the Crave set to the standard +/-2 semitones, and hold the pitch bend wheel "full down". When you play the note, it starts out at -2 semitones, but as soon as you move the wheel a little bit, it jumps down to -4 semitones. Releasing the wheel (still playing the note), it moves to -2 semitones, and "full up" will then take it to 0. It's very obvious if you release the wheel and keep the note going, it's still stuck at -2 (even though pitch bend is centered), releasing the key and pressing it again will give you a different note (the "unbent" one). Not sure how well I explain this, but it's obvious if you try playing a note with the pitch bend wheel already "bent".

    Both of these seem to me like they could be firmware issues dealing with the incoming MIDI data, and maybe something that can be fixed. At least the pitch bend issue seems like it can't be intended behaviour. About the CC/Assign issue, I haven't seen anything in the manual that could control that behaviour, or if it is the intended one, but it seems off to me.

    I discovered these issues on firmware version 1.0.4, but they have persisted through a couple of updates up to 1.0.8. I have only tried "plain MIDI in", not USB, but I've tried with a couple different MIDI controllers (and compared with other synths), and the issue is isolated to the Crave.

    Does anyone else experience the same issues, or know of any way to get around them?

      Update: After working a ticket back and forth with customer support, from firmware 1.0.9 (via SynthTool 2.2.0), both the pitch bend and the "assign out" issues have been resolved. It now plays soooo much better with my wind controller.

    Hi there, I have a major problem. The first time I used my Deepmind 12 connected via USB midi (I had previously used it not connected to check out the sounds) there was some kind of malfunction as it played itself, and even when I pulled out the USB midi lead, it continued to play.) I thought it might have been a problem with the synth itself so, I tried it again and eventually decided to update the firmware but to no avail. This was cured by trashing Logic X preferences so bad midi instructions must have been being sent. This fixed the autonomous strange play problem. I then noticed that the patches had changed in there sound and were not correct. So I restored the synth using the PROG WRITE key commands on startup restoring all steps 1 -5. Again it made no difference. I downloaded SysEx librarian and ran and installed the factory combined presets using SysEx librarian. However, the original factory sounds have not been re-instated instead I still have the messed up sounds after the midi problem incident.   

    Can anyone help me get the synth back to the original factory patches, it is working fine now apart from this, but sadly is of little use to me as the sound patches are now unusable. Thanks Dx

      Your manual shows you how to reset your DM12 to factory defaults, this will reinstate all patches.

      • June 6, 2019
    • shushstudio

      Make sure when you are restoring that the USB cable is disconnected from your computer.

    Hello all,


    Does anyone know if the production of the MS-1 hast been discontinued?

    It seems that all (German) retailers - Like Thomann, Music Store etc. are not offering it anymore.


    Thanks and regards,

      Dale_M Looking at the product page the M1 has NOT been set to Legacy (normally it will say Legacy product in red at the top of the page) most likely due to the global semi-conductor shortage/Covid aftermath there have been numerous supply problems which is likely causing the issue.

    To anyone who could be of assistance,

    I'm new to synths as a whole for background. I recently (less than a month ago) bought a new behringer poly d. I'm trying to use a keyboard to amp setup and am having issues getting it to make any sound. 1/4 inch TRS cables and the power supply are connected. The light at the top left of the synth lights up when I push a key as well but the only thing I hear with the volume loud enough is the faintest, soft pop from the keyboard amp. I'm running into the same issue with headphones as well. Any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      JoeRivers96 Hi Diego, Please ensure the following:

      You have switched your oscillators on using the red switches
      You have turned the volume up of each oscillator
      The filter mode is set to LO and the Cutoff frequency is up
      The main volume is turned up
      You have tested all outputs and headphones

        diegojacuinde Hey Joe, I’ve done all the following and have made some progress. I still don’t have the sound coming through but instead of the faint pop in my amp, I can hear a “white noise” like humming whenever I hold the keys. Same frequency of him regardless of low or high note key. I’m not sure what else it could be. Thanks again for all the help.

      imsk111 My first guess. Distortion volume is very low (switch off distortion first). Oscillator Volumes are not fully turned up and output volume is only halfway up. Fixing all this should do the trick. In general go for the simplest sound first = no effects (distortion, chorus).
