  • Glide control (portamento function for CV1)
  • Power supply (12V AC/min. 400mA)
  • CV1…CV4 and Gate are 3.5 mm miniature jack sockets


Other Features:

  • Midi channel, reference note and Midi control change number for CV4 are adjusted by means of a learn button and LED
  • Metal case, made of 1 mm steel, black coated with white printing
  • Dimensions: about 145 length x 35 height x 60 depth (all measures are in mm)
  • These parts are included (worldwide): one USB cable (type A-B), user’s guide
  • These parts are included (only within Europe): power supply (12 AC/min. 400mA) for 230V mains voltage with European mains plug, ask the Doepfer representative in your country if a power supply is included if you from other countries
  • Order suitable patch cables in addition if required (Midi, A-100 patch cable in the required length, adapter cable 3.5 mm – 6.3 mm /1/4" jack plug)
  • Powering the device via USB is not possible, because the analog circuits require a dual voltage (+/-12V).
  • If you want to connect the Dark Link gate output to devices that use S-Trig a special S-Trig cable is available.


A modular version of the Dark Link is also available: A-190–3
