Doepfer Dark Time Sequencer

GrahamB, 20.05.2013
My recent recorded work needed some constant background 'pulses', & rhythmic patterns, to give the music momentum. So, I looked to the Doepfer Dark Time, read the reviews/watched the videos etc., & was quite impressed. A week later, & I was in the possession of this fine sequencer!
What struck me immediately, was the sturdy build of this, fairly small, sequencer. It was compact, but easy enough to move around the control surface. It worked well, was easy to use, good instruction booklet, & good value for money. It works with all my analogue synths (& midi synths too!). Looks good, is good. Recommended!!

It's small, very capable and fun. Analog sequencers are just great for making looped themes, basslines and crazy bleepy phrases. This has both midi and cv/gate which makes it very versatile, although the two synths I most wanted to connect this to (MiniMoog and Synthi) will not work without special leads and mods.

The diddy toggle switches are maybe a tad unwieldy for those with bigger fingers, and the stop option being endlessly available across all the steps might not be the best choice of function as it is all too easy to just stop..
