Dave Smith: Mopho - The $399 Analog Synthesizer

 Images Mopho Page

Overview here at Analog Industries
Got my Mopho today (thanks, Shawn!!!) All I've done to this point is plug it up and take a step through roughly half the presets, but I have to say that aside from a couple UI quirks, this is an excellent box, and a really good value for your synth dollar.

Affordable, fully programmable mono synth with a 100% analog signal path.
Well it sounds pretty cool! The filter is awesome, and the bass is warbly. Price is good for a new instrument. But the name is retarded. Mopho...Mofo....Mother Fucker? I would actually scrape the paint off mine and write Mother Fucker acrossed it. Then I couldn't show it around kids. How are you supposed to ask for it for christmas? "Mom buy me a Mopho!!" ....

Dave Smith will be releasing the Cokmasta Keyboard to go with the Mopho very soon.
