It’s a Bigger Badder Mopho!

Mopho SE builds upon the same award-winning analog, subtractive synth voice architecture of the Mopho and packages it in an ideally sized, three-and-a-half-octave, portable package. Use it to create the same huge basses, creamy leads, and percolating sequences that made the original Mopho everyone’s favorite micro mono synth.

The Mopho Sings!

The Mopho SE voice 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 re-latchable arpeggiator, and a 16 x 4 step sequencer. Its voice also comes packed with 20 modulation sources and almost 50 destinations!

FM the filter to create metallic bell-like sounds and use the feedback path to add subtle or destructive harmonic content to your sound. Process external audio through the Mopho’s voice and add some analog warmth to any source. Mopho SE’s 100% analog signal path is powerful, monstrous, and sonically dynamic!

Ready to Gig and Fun to Play!

Mopho SE 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 SE’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.

It Grows with You

Expand Mopho SE’s polyphony using it’s Poly Chain port. Mopho, Tetra, and Prophet ’08 can all be connected to the SE to increase its voice count. You can Poly Chain up to three Tetras with Mopho SE to create a 13 voice analog super synth!

The Mopho SE!

Designed and manufactured in San Francisco, Mopho SE has the high quality sound and build for which DSI is renowned. From its feature packed analog voice and unmatched sonic versatility to its refined design and engaging interface, you won’t find a monophonic analog synthesizer like this anywhere else.
