The Sound and the Power of Mopho—with Keys The Mopho Keyboard is a compact and affordable—but powerful—monophonic analog synthesizer. The voice architecture is similar to a single voice of the Prophet ’08, but with a couple of twists to distinguish it from its award-winning sibling. We have added two sub-octave generators—one per oscillator—for additional girth and crushing basses. It also has an audio input that lets you process external audio and mix Mopho’s own audio output back in pre-filter for feedback effects that can range from subtle distortion to extreme skronk. It features the same semi-weighted keyboard action as the Prophet ’08. The Mopho Keyboard’s voice architecture features two oscillators, two sub-octave generators, selectable 2- or 4-pole low-pass filter, feedback, and a ton of modulation options, including three envelope generators, four LFOs, and a 16 x 4 step sequencer. It has a full-sized, semi-weighted, 32-note keyboard with velocity and aftertouch and full-sized pitch and modulation wheels. The Poly Chain feature enables expanded polyphony using other DSI synths. For example, combining a Mopho Keyboard with a Tetra results in a very portable five-voice poly synth. Other features include USB and the ability to process external audio through Mopho’s filter and VCA. The Mopho Keyboard is fully programmable and all the parameters are logically arranged for easy access on the front panel. A free editor is also available for Mac OS and Windows to facilitate programming. The Mopho Keyboard delivers classic analog sound in a remarkably compact package and—perhaps best of all—it’s affordable! Affordable, fully programmable mono synth with a 100% analog signal path. Classic, real analog sound—including legendary Curtis analog low-pass filter. Full-sized keys with velocity and aftertouch. USB connectivity. Measures approximately 18.65″ L x 11.1″ W x 3.6″ H (47.4 cm x 28.2 cm x 9.1 cm) and weighs under 10 pounds (~4.5 kg).


DSI Mopho Keyboard vs Combo of Mopho Module, Minitaur, Minibrute

...need some input from the synth experts here. My burning question is: "What are the pros and cons of getting a DSI Mopho Keyboard versus getting a combination of the Arturia Minibrute, DSI Mopho module, and Moog Minitaur"? For me price is not the issue. I'm wondering if the one DSI unit can do the work...

The Mopho's pulse wave... high values. This points the finger towards a noisy reference voltage to the system's DAC. The DAC used on the Mopho Keyboard appears to use a 5V reference derived from the +12V supply. Now, the 12V supply gets tainted by noise from the other parts of the electronics of the Mopho - which is...
