Midi/USB-to-CV/Gate interface


Dark Link is a Midi/USB-to-CV/Gate interface to control vintage monophonic synthesizers via Midi or USB. Dark Link is nothing but the USB/Midi interface of the Dark Energy. It has available 4 analog control voltage outputs (CV1...4) and one Gate output.

In/Outputs and controls:

  • USB
  • Midi Input
  • Learn button
  • Gate Out (with LED for Gate display and learn function)
  • Important Note for all units with serial number up to 112700 concerning the gate voltage:
  • The gate output is not suitable for devices that require a gate voltage more than +5V ! But the Dark Link can be modified for +12V gate voltage. The modification should not be carried out by the customer because in this case the warranty is void (it is necessary to interrupt the +5V track and install a wire to +12V). We will publish soon details about the modification in case that customers want to carry out the modification despite the warranty loss.
  • The gate output is not suitable for devices that require a so-called switched trigger. In this case we recommend to order the additional S-Trig cable. Details are available on the FAQ page of our website: S-Trig conversion.
  • Important Note for all units with serial number beyond 112700 concerning the gate voltage:
  • Inside the unit is a jumper available that is used to set the gate voltage to +5V or +12V. If the jumper is removed the gate output has S-Trigger function.
  • CV1: controlled by Midi note messages, 1V/Octave, 0...+5V
  • CV2: controlled by Midi pitch bend, ~ -2.5...+2.5V or ~ 0...+5V (can be selected by an internal jumper)
  • CV3: controlled by Midi velocity, 0...+5V
  • CV4: controlled by Midi control change messages, free assignale controller in learn mode
  • Glide control (portamento function for CV1)
  • power supply (12V AC/minimum 200mA, more mA is no problem, a DC supply will not work !))
  • CV1...CV4 and Gate are 3.5 mm miniature jack sockets
