Nah - Dave went to Moogfest and built a Werkstatt. He's just showing off the mods he's learned for it.

And he painted it yellow.
Muhahahahahahahahaha!

I thought the Prophet 12 did not have a sequencer, just an arpeggiator. It's the Poly Evolver that had a sequencer.

A sequencer and an arpeggiator? I must get my hands on a Prophet 12 module.

I demand a poly analog with onboard multitrack sequencer!


There´s literally no difference between sound design and notes sequencing on the Tempest. I hope they keep evolving this concept on their future releases. Sequencing should not be seen as a separated section, or an extra feature, but a must on poly synths.

I'm the opposite. I don't care about onboard sequencers. I have dedicated more complex outboard sequencers

that looks a whole lot like a Pro one or P5. Hard to see with all that artifacting.
I was thinking P5 except there is not that strip of wood on the top that P 5's had.

agreed, I will never buy a yellow synth. It is just such an obnoxious color to me. Though in it's own way a pile of black and grey electronic boxes is kind of obnoxious too.
I think we need more white and aluminum/stainless steel boxes.

At least four voices with at least a 20 step ARP (microkorg style) perhaps.

Bit off topic but I am confused as to what the difference is between the mopho keyboards? Is this se just more octave version key bed of the yellow one?

On topic: when is the announcement due then?

The Mopho SE is an updated version of the Mopho which is monophonic. The Mopho X4 is is a four voice version, or, if you like, a keyboard version of the Tetra without the multitambrality.
