I love the sound videos, I love the idea of the synth, great price point, and it is amazing how DSI can instantly start shipping a product that only a month or two before was just vaporware!

I will probably purchase this product, but the one thing that would have made it a home run and allow it to interface with my vintage analog monosynths is CV outs (that way it could function as a MIDI to CV converter as well).

Keyed version of Blofeld is more interesting if you ask me.
But eh, it's a bit over double the price.

Nah, too small, you need 5 octaves at least.

I think everyone should be happy that there is a $400 real analog synth, in 2008, that will be sold in most musical instrument stores...and not boutique stores or ebay. We can concentrate on what it doesn't have...but really, it has a lot for the cash.

Reminds me of the Futureretro XS demo's that were percussion samples from the XS sequenced into loops.

Sound nice, has a sort of fizz on the fm sounds.

Good gracious, DocT! Your programming skillz just floor me every time. You can get twice the weirdness out of this MoPho that I can eek out of my evolver.

Aye-yi-yi.

I need more quality time with my evo.

P8 or DSI stuff in general would be my last choice for really punchy big bass. so im making a guess Mocho won't be much different in this respect either. i find this peticular late version of Curtis filter rather weak. aside from few exceptions, having dcos does not help the lo end issue either. for "some bass once in awhile", in this price range, id definetely grab a sh-09.
Very much agreed. I once owned an Evolver, but let it go because the overall character did not please my ear. Much the same could be said of the limited time I spent with a P08.

Time will tell if the Mopho has tone that delivers. This will, of course, vary per person.

That all said, as it concerns bass (and other duties), I could not be more pleased with my Roland SH-2.


cheers,
Ian

I have to admit, I am little jealous of the headphone out and the display with words

What do you have evolver? Cryptic 3 digit symbols that look like Predator's wrist watch? asshole!

Yep, those displays are a bugbear of mine. Was it patch number 53 or 54? Maybe 45? From what I gather full displays do knock up the price of small run products like these.
