The Behringer BRAINS is an amazingly versatile digital sound source for creating percussion sounds, leads and basses, as well as drones and soundscapes. With 20 digital oscillator modes, including many different control engines, you’ve got a wealth of different sounds and timbres to create some wild and out-of-this-world patches using chords, harmonic oscillation, particle noise, analog bass drum, snare, hi hat and even speech.
Four Knobs for Everything
BRAINS comes with multi-functional Timbre, Harmonics, Frequency and Morph controls that can be used to tweak each of the 20 synth models. Just select the active synth mode with the model button then start turning the controls to change the character of your sound source until you get your desired tone. Set any of BRAINS’ 20 synth or percussion and noise engines such as Virtual Analog, Waveshaper, FM, Grains, Rain, Noise, Dust, Modal Strings, Bass, Snare or Hi Hat to generate dark pulsating beats, bright and spicy tones, ripping leads, lush chords or ethereal pads to really breathe life into your music.
If having 20 digital oscillator modes wasn’t cool enough, BRAINS has an integrated and inspiring OLED display so you can visualize and adjust waveforms exactly the way you want them to be. Plus, having a screen with dancing waveforms on your synth is just plain awesome!
