Modal Electronics Back In Business, Planning Next Generation Of Music Products

Synth maker Modal Electronics has announced that it has completed its ‘strategic restructuring’, initiated in Sept 2023.

Modal Electronics’ ownership transformation is the result of a strategic collaboration between Alltronics Holding Ltd and the company’s leadership team, which they say give the company a strong financial foundation for the future. With the completion of this step, they say that they can now focus on developing an ambitious plan for their next generation of music instruments and technology.

“The strategic collaboration between Alltronics and Modal signifies a significant milestone for both companies and holds immense promise for the future,” says Alltronics CEO Eric Lam. “By combining the expertise and resources of Modal Electronics and Alltronics, we are poised to deliver a new level of excellence in the products and services we offer. I am confident that this joint venture will lead to remarkable achievements, opening up new horizons and propelling Modal Electronics to greater heights.”

Modal Electronics established a rich lineup of products, since the company was established in 2013, including a wide range of synths, including high-end keyboards like the Modal 002, Eurorack modules, the budget CRAFTsynth line, the portable SKULPT synthesizer, and the Argon8 and Cobalt8 keyboards.

Details on the company and its product line are available at the Modal Electronics site.

    1. I’ve never been a fan of those fast rotating knobs they used. Maybe they’re reliable but they feel flimsy to me.

      1. True they do take some getting used to

        Hopefully they can also make a killer drum machine/production groove box with mighty sound and improvements

  1. Given that Philip Taysom ceased to be a director more than a year ago and was quoted as saying that Modal no longer had a UK office, this sounds like Hong Kong based Alltronics Holdings has acquired the company’s IP and (hopefully) some of its people working as contractors.

    It is not clear what this means for Modal’s product range and support going forward, but it is clearly likely to be very different.

    1. Philip was the director who put the company into administration as he owns 100% of the shares.

      Also, you can see that all the developers left Modal prior to the administration, and if you read the stories online, you’ll see many hadn’t been paid for a while.

      I am glad the brand has been saved, and I hope things go well for the future.

      1. Admin: Personal attack deleted.

        We encourage all varieties of viewpoints regarding things, but not personal attacks on people.

        If you wish to add additional information, do so without making a personal attack or wasting the admin’s time.

      2. Admin: Personal attack deleted. Keep comments on topic and constructive.

        Also, it appears that you are using multiple identities to comment with on the site (system7, Sarah, FPGA7, etc). This resulted in your comment being flagged as spam by the comment moderation system, because this is a common tactic of spammers. Using a consistent identity will avoid this.

        1. I’ve never used any of those usernames (one of which is your own it seems).
          I’ve always used my full name, I suggest you revisit your logs 🙂

          1. Looks like you don’t know how that works here. The “Admin” of this website deleted the comment from FPGA7 and replaced it with the text you see.
            In other words, that’s not a reply to your comment but a message for FPGA7, who apparently attacked you and uses several usernames.

      1. Personally, I actually like the Model Electronics knobs as they feel like they might actually last a while. At least they cannot be worse knobs that the ones on Arturia synths. Those ones go “gooey” after a while and need replacing!

        1. Yes the Arturia ones are worse, i sent my Model synth to a synth shop in Israel and they manged to install and bolt in high quality Sequential encoders

  2. Looking forward to the Carbon8. I got to play it at SuperBooth 2023 and it sounds really great and interesting.

    1. At first I thought the problem is on your end, since it didn’t happen in Firefox on my PC. However, when checking this site with my phone (Firefox and Brave) then the site behaves like one that offers illegal content. You know, where you tap on something and some other tab opens where the URL changes a few times until you end up on aliexpress.
      Mobile network or WIFI, both the same, however if you “request” the desktop version, it does not happen.
      Regardless, a business website that uses such tactics is not trustworthy. I won’t buy their gear.
      Besides it’s only Modal by name now, like MG and other brands where only the name lives on.

    2. I just went there….wow, that is disgusting of them. I probably won’t support any Modal products going forward as it isn’t really Modal anymore. Those ads not only took over the screen, but automatically redirected me to scam websites without even clicking them.

      I love my Cobalt 5s, but it will probably be my last Modal synth, unless I ever get rich and can afford a 008… which I have lusted after for many years.
