Description

The Mopho is a neat desktop analogue synth module designed by Dave Smith of Sequential Circuits. It’s based on a single voice from the Prophet ’08 but adds two sub-oscillators (one per oscillator), an audio input and a freely-downloadable editor

“In conclusion, the Mopho can be warm, deep, harsh, silky, clean, simple, grungy, complex, gentle or aggressive, as you choose, and I can’t immediately think of a cheaper or more convenient way to buy a genuine analogue signal path of this quality and flexibility” – Sound on Sound

“The Mopho will also step way beyond the sounds of the ’70s and ’80s. There’s no end of techno lurking within its sync’able sequencer, arpeggiator and LFOs, and the modulation matrix makes it possible to create many sounds that you might not have expected” – Sound on Sound

“The inclusion of an audio input for processing other equipment through the filters and envelopes is a real bonus over the X4 and expands the Mopho SE’s sonic palette, turning it into an excellent processor for anything you want to feed through”

“This synth has a fat, raw, aggressive analog sound to it. I can really get some nice thick bass and lead sounds out of it.

I personally dig the sound so much, I immediately wished I had more voices….nothing a tetra can’t solve

Seriously, there’s not much to say about it other than it sounds thick and analog and has more of an edgy modern sound to it compared to some other analog synths

I like that it has a feedback circuit built in so you can apply some feedback/distortion type dressing to your sounds based on how you route the feedback”
