Modal Argon8M Polyphonic Wavetable Synthesizer Module

8 voice polyphonic wavetable synthesiser Argon8m joins the growing Modal Electronics family of SKULPTsynthesiser, CRAFTsynth 2.0, Modal 002 Hybrid and Modal 008 Analogue Polyphonic synthesisers.

Based around its revolutionary new wavetable synthesiser engine, Argon8m derives much of its heritage and DNA from the highly acclaimed Modal 002.

Five years on from Modal 002’s introduction, Modal Electronics has created a completely new synthesiser that takes much of the sound design capability and functionality of the Modal 002 and places it in an incredibly compact and price conscious package – the Modal Argon8m.

Polyphony
True 8 voice polyphonic
Mono-timbral

Oscillators
120 carefully crafted wavetables split into 24 banks of 5 morphable waveform sets, covering virtual analogue classics through to cutting edge EDM and many from the original Modal 002 as well as a whole range of mathematically generated tables. Additional PWM bank and 3 noise/modulation banks accessible on Oscillator 2

32 static wavetable processors including de-rez, wave folders, wave shapers, phase shapers and rectify that can be applied to the 120 wavetables to give a mind boggling array of permutations and new waveshapes

32 high resolution wavetable oscillators, 4 per voice, with 8 types of oscillator modifier including: Phase Mod (FM), Ring Mod, Amp Mod, Hard Sync and Windowed Sync

Voice Drift and Width controls that help to create massive stereo soundscapes

1.54 inch large OLED display – that provides instant visual feedback to the user at all times of playing/editing

Multiple keyboard modes, Mono, Poly, Unison 2, unison 4, unison 8, Stack 2 and Stack 4

Inbuilt sophisticated programmable arpeggiator of 32 steps with rest capability with up to 2048 steps before repeating

Glide/Portamento with both legato and staccato modes

Filter
Two pole morphing resonant filter with multiple filter types

Filter can be morphed from low pass, through band pass, to high pass

Modulation
Hugely powerful “Mod Matrix” with eight assignable slots with four additional fixed routes, 11 mod sources and 52 destinations

A 4-axis joystick that can be assigned to a huge range of modulation destinations and virtually ‘locked’ when desired

Three dedicated envelope generators for AMP, MOD and FILTER that can be accessed independently or all three simultaneously including negative (reverse) versions

Two Audio rate LFO’s with tempo sync (one poly, one global). Polyphonic LFO can sync to frequency divisions

FX
Waveshaping distortion

Three incredibly powerful independent and user configurable stereo FX engines

FX include Chorus, Phaser, Flanger (Positive or Negative), Lo-fi, Tremolo, Rotary, 3 x Delay types (Stereo, Ping-Pong, Crossover) and Reverb.

Sequencer
Real time sequencer with 512 notes with input quantise and four recordable / editable parameter animations

Delay FX, LFO’s, sequencer and arpeggiator can be either clocked internally or externally

100 sequencer presets that can be linked to any patch for quickly loading arrangements

Storage
500 patch memories, all fully editable and ships with 300 factory programs and 200 user patch spaces. Patch upload and download through the free MODALapp
