Dark Time is an 2 x8 steps analog sequencer with CV/Gate, USB and Midi interface. It is planned in the first place as an add-on for the Dark Energy but may be used even in combination with other Midi, USB or CV/Gate equipment too.


- 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, details on the FAQ page of our website. You find the price of the special cable in our price list in the accessories section.

- Dark Time cannot be used to control synthesizers which use the Hz/V standard for the pitch CV (unless the quantization of the Dark Time is not used). Only for the Korg MS-10 and MS-20 there is a solution to use 1V/Oct control voltage. A corresponding note can be found on our FAQ page: Controlling Synthesizers with Hz/V standard

- 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 (same as Dark Energy)

- 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 (desktop) 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
 • For the power supply a low voltage DC socket with 5.5 mm outer diameter and  2.1 mm inner diameter is used (even 2.5 mm will work)

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