Doepfer Dark Energy II

   0 reviews  -  1051 views

    Dark Energy II is a monophonic, analog synthesizer with USB and MIDI interface. Its entire sound generation as well as all its modulation sources is 100% analog. Only the USB/MIDI interface uses, of course, digital component parts.

    Dark Energy II is housed in a rugged black sheet metal case with wooden side panels. Only high-quality potentiometers (referred to as „pot“, in case you should be wondering where the „weed“ is…) with metalshafts have been used. Each pot has been mounted firmly to the chassis. The space between the knobs is wider than e. g. on the A-100 modular system, and we made use of knobs which have a classy vintage look to them.

    Dark Energy II looks as beautiful as it sounds and is made for extensive live tweaking sessions. You will get all the advantages of analog sound generation as well as direct access to all crucial parameters. Forget about confusing menus and tiny displays. Yet, Dark Energy II is a modern tool for sound creation and, thanks to its built-in MIDI/USB interface, can easily be linked with every modern computer-based studio or live-setup. Hooking Dark Energy II up to classic vintage analog equipment or to a Doepfer A-100 modular system is also easy.
