Additional remarks and specs:

  • for devices with S-Trigger inputs (e.g. Moog) or the Korg synthesizers MS-10/MS-20 a special S-Trig cable is required to connect the gate output of the Dark Time to the Gate/S-Trig input of the synth.

  • Distance between the knobs (center - center): ~ 25 mm, diameter of the knobs: ~ 16 mm

  • Distance between the toggle switches (center - center): ~ 12.5 mm

  • Distance between knobs and switches (center - center): ~ 20 mm

  • The metal case is made of 1 mm steel, black coated with white printing

  • Overall dimensions: about 248 x 145 x 75 mm

  • Dimension of the metal case only (without side plates and knobs): about 223 x 135 x 55 mm

  • Side plates dimensions: about 145 x 65 x 12.5 mm

  • Weight: about 1.5 kg (without power supply)

  • The wooden side plates can be removed if desired. They are mounted by means of two screws to the metal box. The holes in the metal box can be used also to mount several devices together (e.g. with common wooden side plates on both ends) or to mount the Dark Time to one or two Dark Energy

  • The device can be positioned horizontal (desk top) or vertical

  • These parts are included: power supply (12V AC/min. 400mA) for 230V mains voltage with European mains plug, one USB cable (type A-B, 2 m length) and four A-100 patch cables (two 50 cm length and two 80 cm length)

  • Powering the device via USB is not possible, because the analog circuits require a dual voltage (+/-12V).
