Modal Argon8 37-Key Polyphonic Synth

Modal Electronics are familiar with wavetable synthesis. Taking the wavetable concept a step further, giving a broader tonal palette than before. The Modal Argon8 ensures that it has more sound on offer, and a warmer, more organic response than previously. The Argon8 allows you to combine wavetables with extensive processors, stereo effects, 3x envelope generators and a 2-pole morphing resonant filter. All in all, it's the sound designer's dream.

Bigger Than It Looks

You’d be forgiven for looking at the feature list and imagining a behemoth of a keyboard that hogs your entire workspace. Not the Argon8; this desktop-sized unit will easily fit in amongst your existing setup, and is borderline-portable. Not only that, but it comes with all the connectivity you’ll ever need. Pedal inputs, audio input, sync in/out, MIDI in/out, USB connectivity – this is a fully-fledged workstation that’s not much bigger than your computer screen.

ModalApp Editor

As if the mind-boggling built-in functionality of the Argon8 wasn’t enough, it’s also compatible with Modal’s free ModalApp editor. Allowing you to tap even further into the real-time tweaking of your synth; including manipulating filters, wavetables, effects and much more.
