The d3 is Doepfer´s modular organ keyboard series which has been developed as a master keyboard for organ simulations primarely. The first product released was the d3m, a pure organ keyboard without drawbars. It is possible to cascade several d3m units to create a multi-keyboard organ controller but it is also a smart very stable keyboard for anything else.. without wheels, unfortunately.
The product has a pressure-sensitive keyboard, which resembles of a classic waterfall-organ-keyboard concerning the look and haptik. Compact size was made possible by leaving out wheels which are not really necessary for an organ. On the faceplate you can find 22 buttons for recalling 10 preset banks each with 12 presets. When using several d3ms you will need to use a power supply only, as the power can be send from one unit to the next.
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.
