Ahead of the 2020 NAMM Show, Modal has introduced two new members in its Argon8 family.
The original Modal Argon8, introduced in Sept 2019, offers much of the sound design capability and functionality of the Modal 002, but in more compact and affordable keyboard.
Now Modal has introduced two new Argon8 models:
- ARGON8M – A compact desktop module version that can also be mounted into a 19″ 3U rack with the included end cheeks, for those players with limited space.
- ARGON8X – An elongated 61 key version using the same FATAR TP/9S mechanism with aftertouch, for those players who want an extended octave range.
Both models share the sound engine as the original Argon8, with 8 voices of true polyphonic flexibility (8 independent signal paths comprising oscillators, filter, envelopes and modulation).
The new synths are priced as follows:
- Argon8M = $619 – €579 – £499
- Argon8X = $819 – €749 – £649
