Waldorf Pulse 2 vs. Doepfer Dark Energy II

Post by moodorf » Thu Nov 06, 2014 6:26 am

Lately I've been toying with the notion of selling my Pulse 2 and getting a DE II. Anyone else have an opinion on that?

Good Idea? Bad?

thanks

You'd be swapping a deep 3 osc machine capable of alot for a simple 1 osc machine more geared to modular setups.

I'd say you were crazy. Just get the Dark energy if you want it.

I agree. The pulse 2 is deep and has way more to offer you. And goes great with a blofeld.

In hindsight, this was a stupid vs. thread....Pulse 2 is clearly the better choice. But having said that I'm seriously considering selling the P2 anyway and using the money from it on a different synth.

Out of curiosity, why are you eager to sell the pulse 2? Don't like the sound or is it the interface?
