Modal ARGON8X

The Modal Argon8X is a 61-key polyphonic 8-voice wavetable synthesizer. Built on a 32-oscillator architecture, you can play the Argon8X either polyphonically, monophonically, in unison, or stacked. Packed full of processing power, Argon8X includes de-rez; waveshaping distortion; a robust effects engine; morphable filters, and envelope generators. Allowing you to distort, mangle, and inspire a number of creative explorations.

What’s more, Argon8X sports a built-in arpeggiator and 512-step sequencer. So you can generate intricate patterns that evoke classic ’80s arp lines or future-facing programming. Housed in a steel aluminum chassis, the Argon8X is a durable synth that not only looks great. But will also withstand night after night of constant touring and use. It also offers more than enough connectivity that it’ll fit seamlessly into an existing multi-synth setup.

Above all, the Argon8X is a 61-key synthesizer that boasts endless functionality. So it’s the perfect synth for sound designers looking to push the limits of production!
