Modal Electronics Argon8 Synthesizer

Based on its revolutionary wavetable synthesizer engine, the Modal Argon8 synthesizer derives much of its heritage and DNA from the highly acclaimed Modal 002. The Modal 002, first introduced in June 2014 at $4,495 became the benchmark for wavetable synthesis, and is still used and loved by top artists and film and television producers across the globe.

Five years on from Modal 002's introduction, Modal Electronics has created a synthesizer 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 Argon8.

Bringing eight voices of true polyphony in a professional quality package with features previously never seen at this price point, pushing the bar up in sub $1,000 synthesizers.

Features:

- 28 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 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
- FATAR TP9/S Full size 37 key keybed with both velocity and aftertouch
- 1.54 inch large OLED display - that provides instant visual feedback to the user at all times of playing/editing

- Three dedicated envelope generators for AMP, MOD and FILTER that can be accessed independently or all three simultaneously including negative (reverse) versions.
- Two pole morphing resonant filter

- Three incredibly powerful independent and user configurable stereo FX engines that can create sophisticated Delays, lush Reverbs, Flanging, Phasing, and Rich Choruses

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
