Dave Smith Instruments today introduced a new multitimbral desktop synthesizer, the DSI Tetra.

Tetra takes the sound and features of DSI's Mopho, multiplies them by four, and packs them into a box less than half an inch larger.

"We’d also gotten a lot of requests for a poly version of Mopho, our analog mono synth, which has been very successful," says company founder Dave Smith. "By following Mopho’s lead and paring the interface down to the essentials, we can keep the price low and provide excellent value. Everybody wins."

Features:

  • Affordable, fully programmable poly synth with a 100% analog signal path.
  • Classic, real analog sound—including legendary Curtis analog low-pass filter.
  • Four-part multitimbral capability with four separate outputs.
  • Combo Mode for huge unison patches, stacked sequences, and "modular-style" poly sounds.
  • Expandable: poly chain with other Tetras, Prophet '08, and Mopho for expanded polyphony
  • Just 7.9" x 5" (20.07 cm x 12.7 cm).
  • Free editor for Mac OS and Windows.

Pricing and Availability:

The DSI Tetra retails for $799 and is available now.
