Wet Vs Dry - Effects & Sound Character w/ Doepfer Dark Energy I

Published on Feb 5, 2020 DreamsOfWires

"Just a simple A/B comparison of a simple noise patch on the Doepfer Dark Energy I both with and without effects (delay & reverb). Each moment of the recording is repeated - dry, then wet. I used this particular patch/sound because I think it represents the kind of sounds and character that I like most about this particular instrument, and like the dry sound just as much. It was my first analog synth a decade ago, and it illustrated to me the difference in richness and depth of tone compared to the software synths I'd used before it.

Anyway, this is just a mid-week moment that I thought might be interesting or useful to someone out there, not just regarding the synth used, but also the use of effects, as many people ask me about the effects I use, or how much they contribute to the sound, etc.

The delay is Dubstation2, reverb is EOS2, both by Audio Damage, both recorded within AUM on an iPad using an old Focusrite 18i6. The Dark Energy patch is just the 2 lfo's modulating the filter frequency, one via a patch cable, and then just the usual tweaking of pots.
