Dark Link
Not Shown, 30.12.2019
I use the Dark Link to send MIDI to CV signal to my oscillator. It works great for this.

It would have even been greater tho if I could make an aggregated MIDI-device to use it with Abletons CV-tools, but it doesn't show between the MIDI-devices recognized by my IMAC.

Very useful and good value
14.05.2016
I use the Dark Link as a MIDI interface, via USB, from my Mac using the gate and CV1 outputs to control an SH-101. It worked great, straight out of the box. The glide knob works nicely too. The unit is well built in a metal case, the only thing missing is an on/off switch, but I can live with that.

simple but quality machine
nesmeured, 16.05.2020
I wanted to send midi notes to my moog dfam.
The two best and cheapest options were doepfer dark link and arturia keystep. Choosed the doepfer because of its size, its very compact. Works perfect, build quality is great and the finish is quite lovely, great design from doepfer. The glide is a nice bonus too. No cons.

Ideal para sintetizadores vintage o para no ocupar espacio en Modular
D.P.Martin, 01.08.2018
Esta interfaz MIDI es perfecta para mandar MIDI desde un DAW y convertir la señal a CV/Gate. Tengo un Roland SH-101 con el que se empareja perfectamente, aunque a veces hay que reiniciar la interfaz pues se queda bloqueada en una nota. También es una buena solución si tenemos un sintetizador Eurorack pero no queremos ocupar espacio en un módulo. A mi 101 le he dado una nueva vida con este artilugio, 100% recomendable.
