Dave Smith Instruments Keyboards & MIDI

If you're an electronic instrument aficionado, chances are pretty high that you've heard of Dave Smith. After all, he is nicknamed "The Father of MIDI." An electrical engineer by trade, Smith put his time not spent developing MIDI into designing an impressive lineup of synthesizers. Backed up by more than 35 years of experience building synths, Dave Smith Instruments makes some seriously nice keyboards.  Check out the Mopho Keyboard Synth if you're looking for something straightforward and fun to play. The compact size of this keyboard makes it a good portable toy to bring along wherever you might make music on a whim. Under the hood, it's like a one-voice slice of the Prophet '08, taking plenty of the best things about that keyboard and shrinking them down into a simplified package that's great for hobby studios and experimentation.

Need more than one voice? You can get a similar experience to the basic Mopho but with four times the polyphony on the Mopho x4. This synthesizer keyboard has a few more keys than its smaller brother, and it's expandable by connecting with other Dave Smith Instruments synths: plug a Mopho, Tetra, or Prophet to the Poly Chain port and you can take the Mopho x4 even further.

If you want a full-on professional-level keyboard, though, there's no substitute for the Prophet 12. Described by Dave Smith himself as his "best synth yet," this keyboard has 61 keys and features four oscillators on each of its 12 voices. It's designed with a dedicated knob for every function, so you can stay focused on the music - no need to wade through endless menus. The Prophet 12 is so well-appointed, you'll want to spend hours just discovering all that it can do.

The Mopho, Mopho x4 and Prophet 12 are just three examples of what you'll find in the Dave Smith Instruments keyboard selection. Give everything here a look before you decide which one is the right keyboard for you; they definitely all deserve your consideration!
