Product Overview UK synth trailblazers Modal Electronics make waves with every release it would seem... Introducing the Argon8, an 8-voice wavetable synthesizer that’s a close relative of their flagship 002 model. Mind-bending functionality and near-infinite tonal possibilities meets an attractive price tag; Modal have once again raised the bar in the desktop synth category.

Unlocking Wavetable Potential
Modal Electronics know a thing or two about wavetable synthesis. By taking the wavetable concept a step further, they’ve unlocked a broader tonal palette than ever before.

Many people associate digital synths with sterile, artificial sound; Modal’s approach with the Argon8 ensures that it has more sound on offer, and a warmer, more organic response than previously possible. Combine wavetables with extensive processors, stereo effects, 3 x envelope generators and a 2-pole morphing resonant filter, and a digital synthesizer becomes a 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. This allows you to tap even further into the real-time tweaking of your synth, including manipulating filters, wavetables, effects and much more.
