Description
The Mo’Phatt, 64-Voice Urban Dance Module takes over where E-MU’s legendary Planet Phatt left off with 32 MB of fresh new sounds and lighting fast response time. Mo’Phatt was designed for performance, so make sure to try out all the controller knobs on each preset.

Mo’Phatt contains two user-upgradable sound SIMM sockets. Need more sounds? New sounds can be added as easily as plugging in a new 16MB or 32MB SIMM module. Many sets are available now, with more coming all the time, or you can create your own custom ROMs using E-MU’s E4 Ultra samplers.

Mo’Phatt contains 512 user presets and can hold literally thousands of factory presets. (ROM presets are automatically added when sound SIMMs are installed. As an example, a 32 MB SIMM may contain up to 1024 ROM presets.) Mo’Phatt’s Sound Navigator makes it easy to find the exact sound you want. It’s powerful, yet simple to use.

Mo’Phatt contains E-MU’s new SuperBEATS Mode, which is a whole new way to create dynamic, original music. With SuperBEATS, you trigger, latch and unlatch synced loops and grooves from your keyboard. Simply select a “bts:” preset and you’re ready to groove! Then use Mo’Phatt’s performance controls to alter and mutate the rhythm or the sound itself.

Then there’s Mo’Phatt’s revolutionary Rhythmic Pattern Generator/Arpeggiator which can play up to 16 synchronized arpeggiator patterns at once using a different sound for each! Patterns can be edited using pattern flow commands such as: delay for 2 bars, play for 4 bars, hold for 2 beats and repeat. You can program or download 100 user patterns in addition to the 200 factory patterns.

The extremely flexible yet easy to use 4-layer synthesizer voices make it easy to build sounds of any kind. Layers can be switched or crossfaded using key position, velocity, real-time controllers or any modulation source. Mo’Phatt also contains 50 different 2nd to 12th order resonant & modeling filters which are used to shape and modify the waveforms contained in 32 megabytes (MB) of ROM.

Sixty four modulation sources include three multistage envelopes and two LFOs per layer, as well as full MIDI control over virtually every parameter. The digital patch bay, with 24 cords per layer, (and 12 more cords per preset) lets you connect modulation sources to 64 destinations in any imaginable way. The patch bay contains a set of arithmetic modifiers, letting you create complex synthesis models. Synth parameters as well as arpeggiator and BEAT tempos can be controlled from Mo’Phatt’s internal clock (or an external MIDI clock). Up to 8 LFOs and 12 envelopes can be perfectly synchronized at different rates. This is an extremely powerful synthesizer!

Four front panel real-time controllers give you control over 12 userselectable parameters. The real-time knobs can adjust multiple parameters at once, allowing complex levels of control. For example, one knob can simultaneously turn up filter cutoff, while detuning one sample, and adjusting the release time of the volume envelope. Virtually every synth parameter in Mo’Phatt is controllable using the real-time knobs or by any internal or external control source.

The optional Turbo upgrade adds the following features to your Mo’Phatt:

• 128 voice polyphony
• 4 submix analog outputs
• 32 MIDI channel operation
• 2 additional sound ROM slots
• S/PDIF stereo digital output

Once you have created your preset, you can add richness to your sound using Mo’Phatt’s 24-bit stereo effects. You can choose a different effects setup for each preset from over 60 algorithms. Mo’Phatt’s effects section is actually two separate effects processors with control over each wet/dry mix level on four effects sends. Effects Processor “A” contains primarily ambiance algorithms like reverb and delays, while effects processor “B” contains primarily spectral algorithms such as chorus, flange, phase, distortion, and delay. Effects can be linked to each preset or used globally to further enhance your sound.

Other features include multiple solo, voice assignment and performance modes for expressive control, 12 user-definable alternate tunings, and, of course, an extensive MIDI implementation.
