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. Dark Energy is built into a rugged black metal case with wooden side plates. High quality potentiometers with metal shafts are used and each potentiometer – except the filter mode control – is fixed to the case (no wobbly shafts and knobs). The distance between the controls is a bit wider compared to A-100 modules and knobs with vintage look are used.
The instrument features a classic VCO / VCF / VCA structure plus ADSR envelope and two LFOs.
The stability and frequency range of the oscillator have been improved. There is now a triangle wave. Reset inputs for the LFOs and a new envelope design were added to the Dark energy III. Access points on the circuit board were made so that Diyers with soldering skills can access them and add lots of sockets and functions.
