4 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes 4 years' warranty and 60 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 4 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first 2 years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 4 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

16-Step Sequencer

The Doepfer Dark Time Analog Sequencer is a desktop sequencing unit featuring analog style step sequencing combined with digital circuitry. It provides you with 16 steps in total, arranged into two rows of eight with a intuitive interface. It provides with a wide range of controls including rotary controls, a three-position on/off/skip switch as well as another three-position switch with stop/continue and jump control. The sequencer can operate in a number of configurations including 1 x 16 with two row s daisy-chained, 2 x 8 with both rows running parallel and 1-8 combination with the lower row setting the individual gate length of the upper row. The trilogy of configurations provides optimal versatility when it comes to live performances, as well as studio applications. The sequencer can be used for everything from arranging drum patterns to create complex rhythms using instruments and other external equipment.

Integrated USB/MIDI Interface

One of the most unique features of the Dark Time Analog Sequencer is the integrated USB/MIDI interface. The Dark Time Sequencer features on-board USB and MIDI connectivity, turning the sequencer into a fully-fledged interface for use with DAWs and other digital audio equipment. The integrated USB/MIDI interface combined with the CV/Gate jacks means the Sequencer can process and route signals from virtually any source available. You can use the sequencer to arrange drum patterns, create basslines from synth patches and more.

Intuitive Interface & In-Depth Controls

The ergonomic layout provides quick and easy access to all on-board parameters, allowing you to make quick changes on the fly. Each step features its own dedicated pitch/gate-length knob and two-step status switches. It also boasts premium-grade potentiometers with metal shafts used for optimal durability and performance value. It will integrate with modular synth systems with ease, providing sequencing capabilities far superior to onboard sequencers. It boasts timing control via the built-in clock oscillator, as well as frequency and pulse width controls.

Portable Design, Versatile Connectivity

The compact, desktop-ready design is highly portable and perfect for both live and studio applications. The robust aluminium chassis features wooden sides for that added vintage feel and aesthetic. The vintage-style knob caps also add to the vintage aesthetic, with this version complete with red LEDs for displaying when parameters are in use. It also features a wide range of versatile connectivity, including the MIDI and USB interface. It also features an analog interface featuring CV/Gate/Clock/Star-Stop I/O in the form of 3.5mm mini jack sockets.
