Dark Link
Not Shown, 30.12.2019
I use the Dark Link to send MIDI to CV signal to my oscillator. It works great for this.

It would have even been greater tho if I could make an aggregated MIDI-device to use it with Abletons CV-tools, but it doesn't show between the MIDI-devices recognized by my IMAC.

Very useful and good value

I use the Dark Link as a MIDI interface, via USB, from my Mac using the gate and CV1 outputs to control an SH-101. It worked great, straight out of the box. The glide knob works nicely too. The unit is well built in a metal case, the only thing missing is an on/off switch, but I can live with that.

I wanted to send midi notes to my moog dfam.
The two best and cheapest options were doepfer dark link and arturia keystep. Choosed the doepfer because of its size, its very compact. Works perfect, build quality is great and the finish is quite lovely, great design from doepfer. The glide is a nice bonus too. No cons.

Beste Kaufentscheidung seit langem!!!
23.10.2015
Ich habe mir den Dark Link für meinen MFB Kraftzwerg angeschafft. Mit dem Dark Link bekommt der Kraftzwerg nicht nur ein unwahrscheinlich stabiles MIDI Signal, nein, es fühlt sich so an als hätte ich einen neuen Synth auf dem Tisch stehen. Durch den Dark Link kann ich nun jeden Parameter auf dem Semi Modularen MFB modulieren und eine Glide Funktion hat dieser nun auch. Welche neuen Möglichkeiten das bietet war mir vorher gar nicht ganz klar...

Der Dark Link ist super Kompakt und wirklich hübsch anzusehen. Was er aus einem CV fähigen Monosynth macht, ist mehr als nur eine einfache Modifizierung! Für diesen Zweck wohl das beste Gerät auf dem Markt!!! 5 Sterne. Danke auch an Thomanns tollen Service. Ich hatte zuvor einen Pulse 2 bestellt der mir leider ganz und gar nicht gefiel. Ein Anruf genügte und ich konnte den Pulse zurück senden und dafür den Dark Link liefern lassen. Die Differenz wurde mir noch am selben Tag auf mein Konto zurück überwiesen. Alles sehr unkompliziert und mehr als zufriedenstellend. Danke dafür!
