Dave Smith introduces the new Dave Smith Instruments’ Mopho SE – a “powerful, portable and professional synthesizer” in this new video.
They’ve “taken it up a notch,” he says, and have added an octave to the Mopho SE keyboard, and have now outfitted it with the custom soft-touch knobs from the Prophet 12. It also has an arpeggiator re-latch feature that is new.
The Mopho SE has many of the same popular features of the older models, like one-knob-per-function interface, polychain, USB, full-size weighted velocity and pressure sensitive keyboard, solid all-metal construction, and external audio input.
