Note that the information found here is specific to the product and synthesizer model s it was made for. For more information regarding this product and pricing please see the Product Details page. It is also a complete librarian tool that allows you to view and manage all the patch and bank data on modern computing platforms and applications, in smart and efficient ways. Now you can utilize your Mopho to its full potential in new and interesting ways, and build lasting and meaningful patches that will bring new life to your music. You can manage, view and edit all your patches on the computer itself without the hassle of manual dumps. All parameters are fully automatable using your favorite VST or AU capable DAW host, giving you the ability to visually program the Mopho to your music in the host sequencer.

Download it from www. I should mention that this manual does not include explanations of basic analog synthesizer functions. It assumes you already know what an oscillator is, how a low-pass filter affects the sound, what an ADSR envelope looks like, and so on.

Connect the power supply included with your Mopho. The Power Input — power supply comes with different AC adaptor prongs that enable it to work almost anywhere in the world. If for whatever reason you need to use a different supply, it must match the specifications printed on the front panel. All of the basic building blocks are there. But one of the challenges of making a compact synth is giving the user access to all the parameters within a limited amount of panel area.

Page 12 —Press to return Mopho to program mode. Hold to select global mode. Program —When editing a Program, press Compare to hear the saved version. Compare Turn Compare off to return to the edited version. Compare can also be used to audition write destinations when moving a program.

As soon as any of the programmable parameters are edited, that parameter is displayed on the LCD, with the programmed value on the top line, and the new, edited value on the bottom line. Examples include MIDI channel and fine tune.

To edit the Global parameters, hold down the Program switch until Global Parameter is displayed. The Param 1 knob changes the global parameter and Param 2 knob and increment and decrement buttons change the value.

Page 17 arpeggiator. Note that this Pedal: see table— The advantage to that is that the tuning is exceptionally stable over a ten-octave range without having to compensate for variables like temperature. Page 20 wave, higher values widen it.

At the extreme values, the pulse goes completely flat, which allows for some interesting possibilities with pulse width modulation. Pulse Width —Sets the oscillator glide portamento rate. Glide can be set Glide: Low values are faster. The first cycle to play might be truncated. For some sounds, like monophonic basses, this may actually be desirable.

It adds a bit of randomness to the attack that can make it sound, for lack of a better word, more organic. A Mix: Page Filter Filter Mopho features a selectable 2- or 4-pole, low-pass filter.

When lighted, the filter is in 4-pole 4-Pole mode. Two are dedicated—one to the filter and the other to the amplifier—and the third is assignable to any modulation destination. When all three are lighted, the Envelope Select other envelope parameters control all three envelopes simultaneously.

Page Sequencer Sequencer For many musicians, the term sequencer has become synonymous with MIDI sequencer; that is, a computer-based application or dedicated hardware device for recording and playing back notes and performance gestures via MIDI. But sequencers were around long before MIDI. Simply turn on the sequencer and then play and hold a note to start. Rest prevents the envelopes from being gated by the corresponding step, so a rest in sequence one affects all four sequences.

Page 30 To program a sequence: Turn the sequencer on. Choose Sequencer in the Modulation section. Choose the sequence to program: 1, 2, 3, or 4. Play a note to start the sequence playing. To avoid having to hold a key down, set the Push It Mode Misc. Parameters to Toggle. Confused yet? Increasing the Slew value for step four will cause the oscillator frequency to glide from the step three value when step four is gated on.

A setting of 16 Steps for LFO Frequency with a triangle wave selected and routed to the filter will provide a clean filter sweep over a step sequence, perfectly in sync! This is much easier and smoother than manually programming a sequence to sweep the filter. Since each Mopho modulation source has a single destination, the four general purpose modulators provide a way to send a mod source such as a sequence or LFO to additional destinations, with a different amount.

Page Miscellaneous Modulators Miscellaneous Modulators There are certain standard controllers that Mopho consigns to dedicated modulators, things like mod wheel, pressure aka aftertouch , and velocity.

The most obvious benefits to doing this is it provides a shortcut to setting up commonly used controllers and it frees up the four general-purpose mod slots for other, more Mopho-specific applications. Page Clock Clock The Clock section contains the controls for the internal clock tempo and the note value for the arpeggiator and sequencer and LFO, when Clock Sync is on. There are also switches to turn the arpeggiator and sequencer on and off. Page 36 playing additional notes while latched adds them to the notes already playing.

In ReLatch mode, removing your hands from all keys and then playing an additional note or notes causes the latched notes to be released and the newly played note s to be latched on. As long as at least one key is held, pressing additional keys will add to the arpeggio. Page Miscellaneous Parameters Miscellaneous Parameters Miscellaneous Parameters groups together programmable parameters that do not conveniently fall into any obvious section or, if they do, are parameters that are less frequently used.

They are important, but generally not required for performance. Sets the volume of the current program to match Voice Volume: 0…— Page 38 droning sounds, or possibly when using Mopho to process external audio, turn the VCA Level up. But when set to Toggle, Push It turns the note on with one press and off with a second press.

That means it does not require any additional drivers to be installed to communicate with a Mac or Windows computer. In Windows, if you unplug the USB cable and plug it back in while a program has the Mopho port open, you may have to resync. But what happens to it once its inside and how do you get it out again?

Simply plugging a guitar in does not mean you will actually hear something when you play it. Products that can be chained include the Tetra, Prophet '08 module and keyboard , desktop Mopho, and a second keyboard Mopho. It will not chain with the Evolvers and Poly Evolvers due to the different voice structures. Page 47 Mopho Kybd.

The sequencer has stopped running. Make sure Clock in the Global menu is set to Internal. Some of the programs sound different. Check the Mod Wheel position.

But there are differences between the two. You can't have stronger confirmation than that! Although there were differences, these were too small to care about. With no resonance applied, the differences between these are not as great as you might expect. But when you apply resonance, their true characters are revealed. At one extreme, this can subtly enhance your sounds.
