The cool looking MP-7 is a desktop sequencer module version of E-mu's Mo’Phatt HipHop and R&B sound module. You may recall that the Mo’Phatt module itself was a new and improved Urban Dance and Hip Hop synth based on the popular Planet Phatt module. Like the Mo’Phatt, the MP-7 uses the same sample-playback synthesis engine as E-mu's Proteus 2000 sound module. The MP-7 and all its Urban sounds and beats can also been found in a sleek keyboard version called the MK-6 Mo’Phatt Keys.

Sharing its sounds and specs with the Mo’Phatt, the MP-7 has 128 voices of polyphony like the Turbo Phatt. It ships with one 32 MB ROM soundset, 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! The MP-7 has 3 additional slots for adding more, up to 128 MB, of E-mu's 32 MB ROM soundsets from E-mu's family of genre based sound modules, keyboards, and desktop groove machines.

What sets the MP-7 (and the XL-7 Techno/Dance version as well) apart from its sound-module and keyboard versions is its built-in MPC-style sequencer. If you find the rack-mount sound modules too constricting to work with, and don't have room for another 61-note keyboard, the desktop sequencing all-in-one Command Station may be what you need. There are 13 large velocity and aftertouch sensitive pads which can be used to play notes, chords or drop in drum sounds. Sequences can be recorded in real-time, step input, or grid-styled classic TR drum-machine style programming. Patterns can be up to 32 bars long each, there is quantization, overdubbing features, and synth parameters can be automated in pattern and song modes.
