E-mu Mo’Phatt

E-mu Mo’Phatt Image

The Mo’Phatt is a new and improved Urban Dance and Hip Hop synth based on the popular Planet Phatt module. Mo’Phatt is just that - more phatt - polyphony has been doubled to 64 voices. And there is an all-new 32 MB Hip Hop sound set called "Pure Phatt" and it is full of brand new and classic Hip Hop type sounds, from basses and synths to drum kits, scratches, vinyl effects and more! E-mu's exclusive SuperBEATs performance mode is here as well. Mo’Phatt also has up to 16 syncable arpeggiators, digital 12 pole resonant filters, 12 real-time controllers and more! Sounds can be tweaked and warped using its advanced synthesis architecture and effects processor. On the stage or in the studio, Mo’Phatt is the professional's choice for Hip Hop sounds and beats!

E-mu Turbo Phatt Image

Also available is the Turbo Phatt (pictured above). It has 128 voice polyphony, 2 additional Internal ROM expansion slots, 4 additional outputs (6 total), 16 additional MIDI channels (32 total), and digital S/PDIF output. The Mo’Phatt is also available in a keyboard version called the MK-6 Mo’Phatt Keys. A desktop MPC-sequencer style module is also available, called the MP-7 Command Station.

Current E-mu sound modules ship with one 32 MB sound-set each, but are expandable up to 128 MB via three additional slots for 32 MB expansion cards. These cards include (ranging from $249 to $395):

  • 9061: Siedlaczek Orchestra 32 MB ROM.
  • 9062: Pure Phatt 32 MB ROM - standard in Mo’Phatt, MP-7 and MK-6.
  • 9063: Beat Garden 32 MB ROM - standard in Orbit 3.
  • 9082: Protozoa 16 MB ROM - standard in Proteus 1, 2, 3.
  • 9083: Definitive B-3 32 MB ROM - standard in B-3.
  • 9084: Techno Synth Construction Yard 32 MB ROM - standard in Orbit 3.
  • 9085: Orchestral Session Vol. 1 32 MB ROM - standard in Virtuoso 2000.
  • 9086: Orchestral Session Vol. 2 32 MB ROM - standard in Virtuoso 2000.
  • 9087: World Expedition 32 MB ROM - standard in Planet Earth.
  • 9088: Sounds of the ZR featuring the Perfect Piano 32 MB ROM - standard in Ensoniq Halo.
  • 9089: X-Lead 32 MB ROM - standard in Xtreme Lead-1, XL-7 and XK-6.

With these expansion options, you could buy a PK-6, then add the sounds of the Orbit 3, XK-6, and the MP-7... or any other combinations you may want. If you like desktop synths, you can start with an MP-7 or XL-7, and then add these same expansion card options to add Proteus, Orchestral, or the new Halo sounds to them. E-mu/Ensoniq's interchangeable sound cards and a variety of keyboard/sound-module options means that there's a model out there for everybody now.

Just picked one of these [beep] ers up off eBay. $101 including shipping. Should arrive today, and I'm looking forward to playing with the arpeggiators. Hopefully I can eventually use it to arpeggiate my Yamaha SY77.

I picked up a loaded MoPhatt from a pawnshop for $73 ($80 or so with tax). The guy must have thought that it's some kind of FX box since it was sitting on a pile of FX boxes. The estimated price of $800-$900 is unrealistic. They usually go for somewhere between $100-$300 +/- some.
