Doepfer Dark Energy III

   0 reviews  -  1069 views

    Dark Energy III is the successor of Dark Energy II. The main differences between II and III are an
    improved VCO (no warm-up period, additional triangle waveform, wider frequency range), resettable
    LFOs, improved ADSR and a lot of internal access points for DIYers. The favored filter of the Dark Energy
    II has been unchanged.

    Dark Energy III is a monophonic stand-alone synthesizer with USB and Midi interface. The sound
    generation and all modulation sources are 100% analog, only the USB/Midi interface contains digital
    components. It is built into a rugged black metal case with wooden side plates. High quality potentiometers
    with metal shafts are used and each potentiometer is fixed to the case (no wobbly shafts and knobs).

    The two LFOs each have a reset input, also ADSR envelope has been improved. In addition, many access points for DIY modifications are accessible internally. These include VCO outputs (triangle, sawtooth, rectangle), hardsync, soft sync, linear FM, VCF outputs (TP / HP / BP), ADSR output and A / D / S / R CV inputs, as well as LFO outputs (triangle, square ). The multi-mode filter was explicitly not changed.

    Lots of internal access points for DIY applications or modification of the socket functions (e.g. VCO outputs
    triangle, sawtooth, rectangle, hardsync, softsync, linear FM, VCF outputs L/H/B, ADSR output and
    A/D/S/R CV inputs, LFO outputs triangle and square).
