At the 2016 NAMM Show, Modal Electronics introduced four Eurorack modules, a new rackmount synthesizer and a digital expansion board for their 002 synthesizer.
In this video, designer Paul Maddox previews the new Modal 002 Digital IO Board.
The Modal 002 Digital IO Board adds some major new features to their 002 synth. It offers USB audio in/out, USB MIDI In/Out and a wide variety of audio effects.
The audio output can be sent as a stereo pair, or as 12 separate multi-timbral channels. In addition, the effects can be modulated via the Animator.
“This takes the whole effects thing into a whole new level that you can’t achieve with other synthesizers,” says Maddox.
Pricing and availability for the Modal 002 Digital IO Board are to be announced.
