Building upon the same award winning voice architecture of the Mopho and Mopho Keyboard, the Mopho x4 boasts huge sound and 4 voice polyphony in an ideally sized, portable, and elegantly designed package. Use it to create huge unison basses, creamy leads, maniacal sequences, and ethereal pads.Each of Mopho x4’s four voices is composed of two analog oscillators, two sub octave generators, selectable 2- or 4-pole famed Curtis low-pass filter, three 5-stage envelope generators, four LFOs, a relatchable arpeggiator, and a 16 x 4 step sequencer. Its voice also comes packed with 20 modulation sources and almost 50 destinations. You can FM the filter to create metallic bell-like sounds and use the feedback path to add subtle or destructive harmonic content to your sound. Mopho x4’s 100% analog signal path is powerful, monstrous, and sonically dynamic.Work less, play moreMopho x4 is intuitive and inviting. Every parameter is fully programmable and editable from the front panel. The controls are logically laid out, lending themselves to quick access so you can tweak knobs without missing a beat. The x4’s full-sized, 44-note semi-weighted keyboard has aftertouch and velocity sensitivity. The sturdy full-sized pitch and mod wheels are freely assignable and sport smooth reliable action.Expand your sonic horizonExpand Mopho x4’s polyphony using it’s Poly Chain port. Mopho, Tetra, and Prophet ’08 can all be connected to the x4 to increase its voice count. You can Poly Chain up to three Tetras with Mopho x4 to create a 16 voice analog super synth.100% analog signal pathTwo oscillators per voice capable of producing sawtooth, triangle, saw/triangle, and variable pulse width square waves, with hard syncTwo sub-octave generators per voice (one octave below oscillator 1 and two octaves below oscillator 2)One classic Curtis low-pass filter per voice (switchable 2- or 4-pole) with audio rate modulation, self-oscillating in 4-pole modeAnalog VCAsThree envelope generators per voice (ADSR plus delay)Feedback loop per voice with programmable level and gainWhite noise generator4 LFOs per voiceGated 16 x 4 step sequencer per voice (one sequence per program)ArpeggiatorGlide (portamento): separate rates per oscillatorFull-sized, 44-note (F to C), semi-weighted keyboard action with velocity and aftertouchFull-sized modulation wheel and spring-loaded pitch wheelFully programmable with four banks of 128 read-only factory programs and four banks of 128 user programs (1,024 total)I/OUSB type B receptacleMIDI In, Out/Thru, and Poly ChainLeft and Right audio outputs: 1/4″ phone jack (unbalanced)Sustain pedal input (accepts normally on or off momentary footswitch with 1/4″ phone plug)Expression pedal/control voltage (3.3 VDC max.) input (1/4″ TRS phone jack)Headphone output: 1/4″ TRS stereo phon

The Mopho Keyboard is a compact, affordable, and powerful monophonic analog synthesizer. The voice architecture is similar to a single voice of Dave Smith Instruments’ Prophet ’08, but with a couple of twists to distinguish it from its award-winning sibling. Dave Smith Instruments has 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 Dave Smith Instruments’ Prophet.The Mopho Keyboard is an affordable, full-featured mono synth with a 100% analog audio path. The Mopho Keyboard features 32 full-sized, semi-weighted keys with velocity and aftertouch in a package about the same size as most 25-note controller keyboards. Choose from its 384 preset sounds or craft your own sounds with 25 soft-touch knobs and 20 switches.The Mopho Keyboard features 2 oscillators, 2 sub-octave generators, a classic Curtis low-pass filter (2- or 4-pole), 3 five-stage envelope generators with ADSR (Attack Decay Sustain Release) plus delay, 4 LFOs (low-frequency oscillators), and real analog VCAs (voltage-controlled amplifiers). In addition, it also includes an arpeggiator, a gated 16 x 4 step sequencer (with 1 sequence per program), feedback, the ability to process external audio, and an extensive modulation matrix. Hit the Tap Tempo button to beat match or sync the arpeggiator, sequencer, and match LFOs to MIDI clock.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.You can integrate and automate the Mopho Keyboard with your computer and other hardware using standard MIDI jacks or with a direct USB connection.
