UPDATE: Firmware 1.1.0 Officially Released for DEEPMIND 12

Hi all,

We're happy to announce that the latest firmware release V1.1.0 is now available for download on the BEHRINGER website. Contained in the update download file are release notes, firmware updater software and instructions for handling the update procedure of your DEEPMIND 12 synthesizer.

Please read the information below to see all the things that have been added/improved in this latest release.

Enjoy!

New Features
===========
* Added support for DeepMind 6
* Added support for DeepMind 12d
* POLY CHORD feature with Improved Support for external MIDI triggers (required for 12D support)
- Added four banks (A,B,C,D) of polychord memory.
- Added Chord Wizard feature for auto-chord generation.
- Multiple PolyChord UI improvements
- Added fast switch mode to poly chord banks (Hold POLY CHORD and select bank using buttons under screen )
* Added KEY-RANGE function to CHAIN-PARAMETER page of POLY menu. Allows control of multiple synths from one keyboard.
- Synth will only respond to notes inside the range specified with the RANGE-LOWER and RANGE-UPPER parameter.
* POLY CHAIN (Found in the POLY EDIT option pages)
- Multiple DeepMind 12 synths can now be linked to form a Poly Chain.
- When all 12 voices on the first DeepMind 12 in the chain are in use, further voices can be triggered on additional DeepMind 12 synths when additional notes are pressed.
- The additional option 'Program-Link' has been implemented and can be toggled ON/OFF, when active all program related controls are also passed down the Poly Chain, allowing the simultaneous editing of multiple DeepMind 12 synths.
- There is a 24 note trigger limit that is in place, however this does not limit the number of DeepMind 12`s that can be linked in a Poly Chain (Potentially 24 synths all on Unison-12 could be triggered for 288 voice unison (Yet to be tested however)).
==N.B. When using POLYCHAIN and Key Range feature combined it is advised that MIDI be set to CC (rather than NRPN)==
* Added TRANSMIT-CLK parameter to ARP-SETTINGS menu to switch MIDI clock transmission on/off when arp CLOCK is set to INTERNAL
* Added MODE parameter to PEDAL SETTINGS page which can switch sustain pedal between Sustain / Sostenuto
* Added global VCA-MODE parameter to VCA menu. Allows the switching between the old 'Ballsy' (pre v1.0.5) VCA mode and the new 'Transparent' mode with reduced VCA Leve
* Added the ability to set a bookmark against your favourite programs.
- Hold PROG & FX, then press -/+ to toggle favourite status or move the encoder to browse a list of favourite (bookmarked) programs.
* Added "Favourites" option to SYSEX EXPORT menu to allow favourite list to be manually exported to SYSEX.
* Add ping-pong mode to delay effect. Note the FeedR parameter is disabled in this mode.
* FX Navigation improvements
* Made pitch bend depth parameters bi-polar so moving the pitch wheel downwards can be now made to pitch the voices up, for example by a different depth to the positive depth.
* Added the ability to name four new user categories in the App


Addressed Issues
================
* Sequence editor doesn't show DUP(licate) indicator when on program button is held.
* Fixed PW calibration failure when PW test run individually
* FX Level parameters were not transmitted correctly when MIDI / USB CTRL MODE set to CC.
* Fixed intermittent PW calibration test failures (random failures with DcoPwMax Error)
* Mod matrix shortcuts now respond only to local (keyboard / wheel ) events (except for 12D). Can now use local keyboard to set note number while receiving notes from a DAW.
* Any effect with a 'switch' control that is modulated, will 'reset' modulation position to 0 when changes are made to effect parameters.

General Information
===================
For reasons of compatibility it is recommended that this firmware release (v1.1.0) be used with the application v1.0.x or later. **Please run the VCA Calibration on all voices after upgrading to 1.0.5 or above**

Potential Issue with DEEPMIND 12 Firmware Updater Tool

Just a heads up to our Mac OS users:

The DEEPMIND 12 Updater tool seems to be having an issue on Sierra 10.12, but using SysEx Librarian works just fine. I've let our developers know about this so they can address it asap.

If anyone else here is having this issue happen on any other versions of MacOS them please send me a PM here in the forum and let me know. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
