Interview: Mr Doepfer – King of Eurorack

Sonic caught up with Herr Doepfer at Musik Messe in the Spring

If you’ve had any exposure to modular synthesizers, chances are you’ll have seen some Doepfer modules.Dieter Doepfer sarted to build right from studying physics, with a phaser module for the Formant Synthesizer then the single voice MS-404. , Thanks to him, the Eurorack module format has become a standard – adapted from the scientific rack testing system tweaked to work for synthesis. He doesn’t want to take much credit, but in reality, a better power system, internal CV and Gate bussing, plus a lower cost ribbon connector system required some innovation and in my opinion has had a major impact in the proliferation of modular synthesizers in recent years.

Currently in the Doepfer range there are 171 modules
