An Extremely interesting & Experimental Module!

Alex London, 01.08.2016
The Doepfer A-188-1A is one of the most interesting and experimental modules by Doepfer, hands down!

It's essentially a delay module but not as straight forward as your normal delay. It comes in 6 versions each with different delay times from 128, 256, 512 up to 1024, 2048 4096. The units with lower numbers, produce a flanger/phaser like sound (which are in effect very fast delays) whereas the large numbers (1024 and up) are closer to a traditional delay sound. However, the Doepfer A-188-1A (with a 512 delay time) sits in the middle, as it offers a sound which is less than a delay and more than a flanger/phaser.

It produces extremely rich, electronic, deep and experimental sounds depending on what clock and other signals you feed into it. It is very hard to describe it, you really have to hear it to understand, but it is a very unique, growling and edgy. These are the words that come to my mind when i hear it. It's not necessarily something that you will use every day, but for those who are into sound design and wish to explore, this is a module not to be missed!

nice, but...

derkatsh, 13.02.2018
tbh I didn't know what to expect, so far I only had experience with digital delays. I picked 512step one, aiming at "metalizer"/flanger and this is what I got (actually I am glad I didn't pick the lower ones). On lower clock freq. the clock can be hear pretty well (just need to filter it out), and the sounds obviously gain some strange noises ("sound artifacts"). It seems to work best with not much muffled, mid to high range sounds, say ringmod outuput of 2 pulses or vco fm'ed with other vco. Lovely metallic soundscape, controllable with feedback (and you can even plug it into some other module, say another ringmod ;)). Altering polarity is also a cool feature to explore. Also high frequency on cv creates pleasant sounds if you find the sweet spot...
However, this is NOT a good delay, so for clean non-metallic echoes consider either the 2048step one, or something else is better.
