Dave Smith Mopho Keyboard - semi-weighted keyboard action with velocity and aftertouch, 100% analogue signal path, two oscillators, one classic Curtis switchable lo-pass filter (2 or 4-pole), analog VCAs, three envelope generators (ADSR plus delay), two sub-octave generators (one octave down and two octaves down), external audio input with feedback, four assignable performance controls per program, gated 16x4 step sequencer (one sequence per program), arpeggiator, 384x programs, MIDI out/thru, audio input/output, headphone output. Free downloadable software editor (Mac OS and Windows).
The Mopho keyboard is an excellent, dare I say aggressive sounding mono synth. The build quality is fairly high,with solid knobs and a comfortable semi weighted keybed. I found myself able to make great bass patches fairly quickly, mainly due to the thickness of the sub oscillators and the extra bite offered from the audio feedback
The Mopho has a lot of modulation possibilities, with three envelopes and 5 different LFO shapes. Programming can be slightly time consuming for more complex patches as the synth doesn't offer one knob per function, The sequencer is powerful but again, programming can be frustrating as you have to check the menu screen to check the steps and parameters.
If you are not interested in dialing in your own sounds, the preset banks are excellent and you can probably find a sound close to what you are looking for.
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?

I've had the Dave Smith Instruments Mopho Keyboard for nearly two years now and I still love it. This is an awesome synth - Sounds great, plays great - very portable, very flexible. Possibly one of the only drawbacks I can think of is that it doesn't sit well on a conventional keyboard stand.
