Doepfer Dark Energy 2 replaces the old one (CEM reasons)

Forum • Dark Energy 2. this synth is without the FM Knob – replaced by filter type  which is new –  since the  Curtis CEM Chips run out of stock and something had to be done. so it’s slope went to 12dB/Oct.

so the new Dark Energy will be close but not the same as the frist batch.

The Waveforms available are Saw and Rectangle, since the pure higher harmonics triangle wave is not as important as on the FM-capable model.

it also has improved stability.

the VCA will be at exponential control (so no linear switch is there), price will be 430€ over here in europe.
