Doepfer Dark Energy I

   0 reviews  -  772 views

    Dark Energy is a monophonic analogue synthesizer with USB- and MIDI interface. The entire sound generation as well as all it‘s modulation sources are 100% true analogue. Only the USB/MIDI interface uses, of course, digital components. Dark Energy is housed in a rugged black steel case with wooden side panels. Only high quality potentiometers with metal shafts are used. Each poti is screwed to the chassis. The space between the knobs ist larger as with the A-100 modular system and we used knobs with a neat vintage look.

    So Dark Energy is as beautiful to see as to hear and well made for extensive live tweaking. You get all the advantages of a true analogue sound generation as well as direct access to all sound parameters – forget about confusing menues and small sized displays. Nevertheless Dark Energy is a modern sound generation tool and, thanks to it‘s built in MIDI/USB interface, it can easily be linked to every modern computer based studio or live setup. Hooking up Dark Energy to classic analogue vintage equipment or to a Doepfer A-100 modular system is also easy.
