The Dark Energy (I) had to be discontinued because an important electronic part (CEM3394) is no longer available. That's why we decided to do a redesign of the Dark Energy. The new Dark Energy II will look like the Dark Energy I at first sight. Only the function of some controls and switches differ from the Dark Energy I. But the basic sound of Dark Energy II is different from version I because of the new circuits for VCO, VCF and VCA. These are the most important differences between Dark Energy I and II:
- 12dB multimode filter with lowpass, notch, highpass and bandpass (instead of 24dB lowpass of Dark Energy I)
- the previous LM control of the filter becomes the filter type control Mode (continuous crossfade lowpass - notch - highpass - bandpass)
- the modulation level control of the filter "XFM" has so-called "polarizer" function. The modulation source (LFO2 or ADSR) selected by the Source switch may affect the filter frequency in a positive (right half of the control range) or negative way (left half of the control range)
- the waveform switch is used to select between saw and clipped, inverted saw (in the center position the saw is off)
- the basic waveform of the VCO is saw (not triangle like the Dark Energy I).
- because of the pure analog circuit and the temperature control it may takes up to 20-30 minutes until the VCO is in tune.
- the VCA has a exponential scale (not the combined linear/exponential scale of Dark Energy I)
