Yep, that sounds about right to me too, with a punchy envelope in there
too. ZynAddSubFX is crazy overkill for something like that -- I'd stick
with something like the XSynth DSSI synth or amSynth, which are both
much closer to the (relatively simple) architecture of the MoPho.

seq24 is a good option, too for this kind of simple step-sequencing
work. I've been doing this exact thing lately (feeding simple patterns
in to a synth, though in my case it's my Blofeld rather than a
softsynth), and seq24 has been perfect for it.

PS: apologies if this mail ends up coming through twice -- the first 
time I sent it I received a rejection notice saying that I wasn't 
allowed to post to the list. I've un-subbed and re-subbed, so hopefully 
this works.
