The Mopho is, effectively, the equivalent of a single voice from Dave Smith’s excellent Prophet 08. It has a 100% analogue signal path, features two sub-oscillators for added weight and has a filter that can process external audio signals.
It’s a fairly versatile beast, coming packed with over 380 presets based around a broad range of classic and vintage synth sounds. The Mopho also connects to a computer via USB for deep patch editing and assigning its four parameter knobs.
Value for money:
It’s hard to fault Dave Smith quality and sounds at this price.
Realistically, you need to dig into the software editor to get the most out of it. Bright yellow design can be a little divisive.
Computer-savvy musicians looking for a flexible, quality synth on a budget.4 Stars
