hahahah. they do? wow.
They have that plasticy top end that I didn't like about the 08. Filter is average. My Pro One blows it out the water tonally.

Hopefully there will be an accelerated knob adjustment function, like on the Mono Machine.
Ah yes, another annoying thng about DSI stuff.

Not a fan, sorry.

Three octave keyboard? Wooden sides? $800? Yeah... I'd do that...

As seductive as the MEK is, this model would seem to be a much more esthetically intriguing version.

rockitman it appears it's used to start the sequencer and/or arperggiator. Check out video demo 3 on the DSI site, keyboardwizard pushes the button after a couple of presets.

The Push It button is a manual trigger that lets you play a specific note or latch notes and sequences on. It can also step through a sequence to play short melodic lines without a keyboard.

So who's getting one? JS?

I'm a bit torn. I kinda want to go back to the MEK as the DEVO matrix programming is a bit uninspiring IMO. Since the mopho is a more simplistic synth it is a bit more attractive for its form factor but than I think I might get bored just having the analog side of DEVO (and a couple minor add-ons). If I liked the DSI filter more than I do I'd probably be all over this.

I am debating it.

The Sounds Cards for the Sequential Circuits Studio 440 or the DSI monosynth

Ive got a MEK, so id say get the studio 440 cards first if anything.

As flexible as the MEK is, it doesn't jump out to me as something I would miss, but maybe thats because I know they are still accessible.

And I always think that the rarest items should come first. Followed by the most expensive...

Nope, not getting one... I've lost interest in synths. The only synth I'm interested in is a real VCO analog with patch storage and a 303 style sequencer in a small box...and that doesn't appear to be something other people want.

I'm very interested in this mainly because of price. I downloaded the manual (MoPho manual) and the sound editing software (http://www.soundtower.com/mopho/index.htm) just for kicks. Now if only my local shop would get one in.
