Introducing the ARGON8 polyphonic wavetable synthesiser

A revolutionary new wavetable synthesiser engine in an incredibly compact and price conscious package

Introducing Modal Argon8 - 8 voice polyphonic wavetable synthesiser

Modal Electronics are proud to announce the latest in its line of innovative Machines For Musicians – the Modal ARGON8 synthesiser.

ARGON8 joins the growing Modal Electronics family of SKULPTsynthesiser, CRAFTsynth 2.0, Modal 002 Hybrid and Modal 008 Analogue Polyphonic synthesisers.

Based around its revolutionary new wavetable synthesiser engine, ARGON8 derives much of its heritage and DNA from the highly acclaimed Modal 002 and places it in an incredibly compact and price conscious package.

ARGON8 will be announced and shown at Knobcon in Chicago on the 6th of September.

ARGON8’s completely new sound engine enables extremely complex synthesis creation that we believe is hitherto unprecedented at this price point and even for products that are much, much higher.

Pricing will be $699 – £579 – €649 and will be available later this year.

Perform with unique wavetable sounds, ranging from lush pads, soaring leads, moving soundscapes and earth shuttering basses

Create and save your own signature sonic textures with morphable waveforms, analogue-style morphable filter, an immersive modulation matrix and flexible digital effects

Bring performance to a new level with MPE support, the integrated 512-note Realtime/Step Sequencer, 32-step programmable Arpeggiator and hugely powerful Animation Lanes

Express yourself with the class-leading 37-note key bed with aftertouch, built into a road-ready aluminium enclosure

Integrate ARGON8 into your production and live performances with the full-size MIDI connections and the 3.5mm Sync Ins and Outs

Access all synthesiser functions and update ARGON8 via the free MODALapp, available on macOS, Windows, iOS, iPadOS, Android and AU/VST3
