Doepfer's A-183-5 is a simple, passive attenuator module that we've all missed at one time or another.
Essential must have for all (larger) systems: The 183-5 is a passive attenuator that you can use for either control voltages or audio. Passive here means that between the two jacks is only a 50k pot that attenuates...nothing else. So it draws no current and can be used bidirectionally (if desired).
WIth a long trajectory building synths, MIDI keyboards and designing bespoke devices for music pioneers Kraftwerk, Dieter Doepfer decided to design his own modular synthesizer in 1995 based on existing electrical and mechanical specifications of lab equipment he used during his years at university. The official presentation of the system at 1996 Frankfurt Musikmesse caught everyone by surprise and created lots of interest. After Doepfer published the specifications on his website, many instrument designers and engineers saw the potential of the new Eurorack format. Doepfer continues expanding their catalog of over 200 modules (and counting), operating from their modest offices in the outskirts of Munich.
