Why We Love This Product!


Whoa, ho ho ho! Hold the phone, folks. If someone told you that you could have FOUR of Dave Smith Instruments' wildly popular Mopho synths... at a super-sick price (the price of TWO!)... you'd go for it. And why wouldn't you?!?! You'd get 100% KILLER analog synth tones, with FOUR VOICES at that! So naturally your jaw is going to drop and/or your ears are going to smile (if that's possible) when you take a look at the Tetra. Yes, we didn't start off this description on a tangent. Because the Tetra is the awesome POLYPHONIC (4-voice) analog synth from Dave Smith Instruments... that's sized to fit on your desktop, in your backpack... wherever you feel like making the music. And when you hear this thing, you will feel like making music. It's like having FOUR MOPHOS in one!

The Dave Smith Instruments Tetra features two oscillators per voice. There's sawtooth, saw/triangle, triangle, or square with pulse width. Plus there are three envelope generators per voice and two sub-octave generators per voices. What does all that add up to? MAJOR FLEXIBILITY... 100% ANALOG SOUND! The slick black look doesn't hurt in the Cool Department, either. Feeling REALLY WILD? Chain four Tetras together for 16-voice polyphony. You'd have to be CRAZY. SYNTH CRAZY. And maybe you are.
