Simple and Powerful
Kikazaru, 28.12.2019
Purchase mainly for the FM and HPFilter and BPFilter which is very common in Psytrance and experimental sounds. But at the end the PWM sound was more what i was looking for.

Comes with many inputs, but a bit lack of outputs (comprehensive for the price)

The module comes with much more hidden features such as Linear FM, etc.. BUT! you might need a good understanding of electronics ...
I've tried to search at the internet, but at the moment (28-12-2019) there's not much information about how to mod the Dark Energy III as your liking.

But the end , overall, the Dark Energy III, just out of the box, its a pretty powerful synth.

Pros:
-Its Sounds pretty "organic"
-Simple and user friendly
-Variety of modulation & Waveforms

Cons:
-For those who doesn't know electronics are limited
