Today, British synth-makers Modal Electronics released a video of sound demos of some of the presets available in the factory patch banks of their upcoming Modal Argon8 synth:
Modal Argon8 is an 8 voice polyphonic wavetable synthesiser. It features 120 crafted wavetables, split into 24 banks x 5 morphable waveform sets, 32 oscillators in total (4 per voice) and a large range of wavetable and oscillator modifiers.
Beyond the oscillators there is a multi-mode filter, 3 envelope generators, 2 audio-rate LFOs, 3 powerful independent and user configurable stereo FX engines, a real-time sequencer, a programmable arpeggiator and an extensive modulation matrix.
While we were at Knobcon, we talked with Jackson from Modal, who gave us this early, in-depth look at the new Argon8 synthesizer:
The Argon8 offers much of the sound design capability and functionality of the Modal 002 – offering deep synthesis capabilities, a sturdy metal case, a full-size keyboard with velocity and aftertouch and more for an expected price of $699.
