The Modal COBALT8X builds on the tradition of warm and punchy analog-style synths sounds; unlocking the full creative potential of analog waveforms. Powerful and inspiring, the COBALT8X reinvents the aesthetics and allows you to explore a new era of synthesizer textures. Going far beyond the limits of its analog predecessors.
Not only does the COBALT8X feature an innovative oscillator engine, but there’s also an added morphable 4-Pole Ladder Filter. Combined with unparalleled modulation options; step sequencer; arpeggiator; FATAR 61-Note Keyboard; MPE; Studio Quality effects; and MODALapp integration. The COBALT8X is the perfect versatile instrument for playing vintage synth sounds.
Boasting 8 true polyphonic voices, the COBALT8X tempts you to lay out wide string and rich synth pad chords. While a monophonic bass or lead patch with 64 oscillators lets you shake the walls of the biggest stadiums. Plus, with avant-garde sound forming features, you can refine your performance with sounds like no other.
Analogue Goodness and so much more
Featuring 2 independent oscillator groups with up to 4 oscillators each; you can generate powerful virtual-analog goodness with 34 unique algorithms such as Sync, Ring Modulation, Waveform Morphine and many more. So you can increase your creative options for new-generation synth sounds.
Each Algorithm also has a simple-to-use pair of controls to suit the particular algorithm or character. Providing the power of traditionally complex oscillator modulations or processes spontaneously.
For every synth lover: our 4-Pole Ladder Filter
Additionally, COBALT8X has a self-oscillating 4-Pole Morphable Ladder Filter with Resonance, injecting even more warmth and bite. You can switch between the four different filter modes, get creative with the Notch filter, and create unusual textures with the Phasor.
Shape your sound
Finally, the flexible audio-rate LFOs can be routed to a number of destinations. Using the modulation matrix and sync to internal or external tempo. There’s also three dedicated envelopes for the filter, amp, and modulation that allows for excessive control over dynamics and expression. There’s also a 12-slot modulation matrix that supports easy assignments of complex modulation routes.
