Mopho Kbd+modular module ??

Author Mopho Kbd+modular module ??

Hello,
Im new to the world of synthesis, and i was thinking to buy the mopho keyboard as a first synth. I was thinking also to buy one one these modules,that i would connect to the CV of the mopho :

- Cwejman MMF-1
-Doepfer A106
-Moog MF-101
-Metasonix R-52


Since i'm not rich ,i need your advices .
The reason why i want to buy both is because i want my mopho to sound more vintage,warm and deep.I m into electro and electroclash.
Questions: Should it technically work or does the module needs to have a voice also ? Will i be happy with the result and could you describe these models ,i know that cwejman are awesome ,but i don't know much more
Muchas gracias !!! Rockin' Banana!

Hi,
i think that you need even an A119 or similar modules to feed your mopho in the modular.

see this post:

I'have a mopho, not the keyboard version, and i use it a lot with my modular system with a lot of fun.

I don't have a modular...Also,does my initial question makes sense ? Because i saw that the mmf1 doesn t have a traditionnal power adapter

I might not understand what you mean, so if I'm just saying things you already know, please ignore.

You'll need a case/power supply to use modules. The modules you mention in your first post are all eurorack format (except the mooger) and would need a case like these:
http://www.doepfer.de/a100p_e.htm
(this is just one example - there are other manufacturers and options)

You plug them into the case and patch them together. The A119 is a module which serves as a pre-amp to get the level of something non-modular (e.g. the Mopho) up to the level of modulars (which generally work with higher levels - or something like that).

The moogerfooger is like a guitar pedal and does not need any extra power or mounting case.

I found this thread, which Muff put together, useful when I was starting to think about modulars:

The mopho has no CV-output only a CV input for expression pedals and such. Maybe you could send a lfo of envelope CV in there if you attenuate it a bit but still, no CV out from the mopho, only midi.

the Mopho (i speak about the version without keyboard) dont have CV input but an audio input to process external audio or to make feedback patch

But with if you use the Envelope Follower in the modulator section of the mopho you can reach some interaction with the modular.

Imho the best options to control a Mopho from a moduar is use the Silent Way CV2Midi to control some parameters on the mopho.

It's a shame that mopho dont have a real CV In but for the rest is really great analog synth ( even the VCO is really a DCO)

if you want to process audio, you don't *NEED* an A-119. you can try running just audio directly into the modules you get. I do this all the time with external gear. You could also look into something like Malekko's 8NU8R for introducing external audio.

and any modules you purchase will need to be housed and powered specific to their format.

sorry but this confuse me a little.. you can say that i can put ANY external audio in my modules ?
qu.one
the thing with external audio is that they might not be up to the level of your modular. these types of modules (pre-amps) will help bring them up (or lower if needed) to modular levels.

i have plugged every drum machine i own directly into my modules without a special module first.

SH101 has a cv and gate out, and the onboard sequencer is playing the VM-1, you aren't hearing the sh101 playing through the VM-1.

The Mopho sounds plenty vintage and warm anyway, but maybe you want to choose a multimode filter so that you can tame some of the bottom end, and give you some more interesting sounds.

I always thought it was a shame that the highpass filter on the Evolver was so damn noisy, with a noticeable 'switch' from 0 to 1, and it's also a shame the Mopho doesn't have high and low pass filters in series.

Hi - I just bought a moog little phatty Australian redbackedition - just A special edition with 5 x cv outs. While I don't have a modular just yet - I have tried out interfacing this with a modular and it works really well.

Again I ran it into an amplifier module and used an additional two oscillators on top of the ones on the moog - sounded and wines great.

It may be an option?
