There have been a lot of talking lately about the release, and its date, that was delayed some days ago, about the new device from Dave Smith and now here we have it, the Dave Smith Instruments Mopho Desktop Synth. A compact desktop unit with monophonic analog circuitry that is the small brother of Prophet ’08 model because its functionality is based on a single voice of that model but with some interesting improvements like 2 sub-octave generators and external audio input to mix any music you want.
The specifications of the Dave Smith Instruments Mopho Desktop Synth are 2 oscillators, Curtis low-pass filter, 3 envelope generators, arpeggiator, pitch, cutoff, resonance, attack, decay/release, input gain, volume and program selector knobs, write, program mode and assign parameters button, gated 16 x 4 step sequencer, 384 included programs, audio Input and stereo audio and headphones outputs.
All the 4 assignable controls from Mopho can be controlled via MIDI (including from the Prophet ’08) and if you use gear from your computer, there is a free editor software for Windows and Mac users. The Dave Smith Instruments Mopho Desktop Synth is now available and its price is $440, so if you want to feel how is play a analog synth you should really check it.
