This short video covers a new feature in the V3 firmware for ARGON8 and V2 firmware for COBALT8 – the new Distortion FX. They include 4 distortion algorithms, each with mono and stereo variants, Soft Clip, Hard Clip, Rectify and Fold.
In this Quick Dive instalment, we'll be taking a closer look at the new "Chorus 2" effect, introduced with COBALT8 Firmware v1.4. Chorus 2 is plucked straight out of the COBALT5S, providing a great new tool to create a lush and dense synth sound.
This episode of Modal Mysteries covers one of the biggest names in EDM; Joel Zimmerman, AKA Deadmau5, brings an epic blend of synthwave and progressive EDM in one of his recent tracks, "Hyperlandia feat. Foster the People." The Modal Mystery covers the club mix in particular. The simple yet effective synthwave bass shown on the COBALT5S is a textbook example of how easy and effective the COBALT series of synthesisers are. All synth elements in the mix were recreated using modal synths as well.
Get an in-depth look at some creative ways to make synthetic drums and percussion effects in your own productions. Using the fast workflow of the Modal App, we'll create some new sounds on the fly. We'll then take those sounds into Ableton and explore some effective ways to blend the percussion in with side-chain compression and Xfer LFO tool. This instalment is shown on an ARGON8 but also applies to other MODAL synths, like COBALT8 or COBALT5S.
Our First Modal Mystery Melody is based on a popular indie game that featured a soundtrack exclusively from UK-based indie label Ghostly Digital. One of Michna's entries features a dreamy string pad with a long release tail and a touch of white noise, giving it a relaxed and airy mood. This episode features the build of that lead for COBALT8.
