DSI Mopho Keyboard Update


Dave Smith Instruments has posted a status update on their much-anticipated Mopho Keyboard:

If all the various bits and pieces come in on time, we hope to ship mid-April, but we still don't have a "real" one to show you. The image above should be pretty close, though.

Mopho Keyboard

The voice architecture and general specs are the same as the Mopho desktop module.

Enhancements include programmable feedback gain, additional arpeggiator modes, and the ability to set the slew rate separately for individual sequence steps. (Yes, the latter two features will eventually find their way into the other products in the Mopho/Tetra/Prophet family.) It features a semi-weighted keyboard action with velocity and aftertouch. And it has great feeling, two-shot, soft-touch knobs.

The eagle-eyed among you may find it odd that a monophonic synth has a unison on/off parameter. When paired with a Tetra, Mopho Keyboard makes a very compact, very powerful five-voice poly synth!


We'll have more information as it becomes available.
