4 Voice Virtual-Analogue Synthesiser

Modal Electronics - SKULPTsynth SE

Portable 4 Voice Virtual Analogue SynthesiserSKULPTsynth SE is a powerful portable performance synthesiser that allows musicians to perform and compose anywhere. This lightweight USB or battery-powered synthesiser features a unique 32-oscillator virtual analogue sound engine. Its mighty synth architecture features 2 WAVE groups, incorporating four oscillators per voice, a morphable 2-Pole resonant Filter plus a comprehensive 8-slot modulation matrix and digital effects.

The integrated Arp and 256-note Sequencer allows to play rhythmic patterns and melodies automatically. SKULPT supports MPE for next-generation expressive performances. Musicians, DJs and producers find 128 exciting preset sounds to start their synth adventure right out of the box. The free MODALapp and MODALplugin for all primary computer and mobile platforms integrates easily with any VST3 and AU compatible recording environment.

SKULPTsynth SE and SKULPTsynthesiser can be polychained in mixed setups (up to 4 synths) and the patches are cross-compatible. A wide range of free and commercial patch collections are already available to start the musical adventure immediately.

4 VoicesPolyphony

32 x VCOOscillators


at a glance • 32 oscillators (8 per voice) with 2 selectable morphable waveforms
• Waveforms: Sine, triangle, sawtooth, square, PWM and noise
• Unison / spread option for detuning the 32 oscillators
• Mixer for Osc levels together with FM, PWM, tuning and ring modulation options
• 3x envelope generator for filter, amplitude and modulation
• 2x audio rate LFO (global and polyphonic)
• Micro-USB connection

'both brutal and subtle modulation of the sound'Two WAVE groups per voice with four oscillators each provide profound hands-on control over the sound and sweep smoothly between sine, triangle, saw, square, PWM and Noise sources. Additional oscillator modulation using FM, Ring Modulation or the hugely powerful on-board LFOs unveil an unmatched potential for sound customisation.

The state-variable 2-pole filters morph from lowpass through to bandpass and through to highpass. With its resonance feature, it picks out rich harmonics at high resonance levels.

Three dedicated envelopes for the filter, amp and modulation give excessive control of the dynamics and expression. Two LFOs, one global and one polyphonic, can be synced to internal or external tempo. The polyphonic LFO also syncs to a division of the played notes’ fundamental frequency for both brutal and subtle modulation of the sound.

Next-Gen Performances Out Of The Box

Modal Electronics - SKULPTsynth SE

model sounds with your fingertipsSKULPTsynth SE supports MPE and offers musicians creative new musical ways to model sounds with your fingertips. Connect your MPE compatible MIDI controller and endeavour next-generation expressive sound articulations only possible with a real instrument like SKULPTsynth SE.

SKULPTsynth SE has a deceptively capable real-time sequencer onboard. It is pretty easy to capture performances, quantise, loop & hold them, and capture four lanes of Animation on the fly. This alone introduces some crazy modulation possibilities and is key to getting to know this synthesiser.

This, coupled with the adaptable on-board arpeggiator, chord and transpose functions, opens an entire new world for complex and exciting synth sounds.

Open To All Environments

Modal Electronics - SKULPTsynth SE

wide range of connectivitySKULPTsynth SE has a comprehensive set of connections to power and control the synth using USB, monitor with headphones or using the dedicated line output, sync with external gear using the full-size MIDI in and out or the 3.5 mm Sync in or outputs.

The Global Tune Setting ensures a perfect integration into mixed setups with other, less accommodating equipment in studio and live applications, like analogue synthesisers or DJ turntables, which tend to be less precise in tuning.

Expanding the sound of SKULPTsynth SE is possible by polychaining up to 4 units for a total of 16 voices and 128 oscillators.

What does SKULPTsynth SE sound like?

From The Press

MUSICTECH“The SKULPTsynth SE is designed to be a creative tool in a portable package. The amount of functionality that Modal has crammed into such a small space is astounding.”

juno“The Skulpt proves that good things come in small packages, offering far more potential than you might expect for such a minuscule synth. “

sonicstate“I must confess, I was pleasantly surprised by the sounds Skulpt makes, it has an organic, musical feel which is perhaps not what you might expect from a pure DSP synth.“

ASK.AUDIO“It’s at once a fun and portable synthesiser and a really serious instrument capable of some enormous sounds, and with a real depth of sound shaping and editing capabilities…If you’re looking for a portable powerhouse that can make great sounds and also teach you something about synthesis, Modal’s SKULPT is well worth a look.”

music radar“[SKULPT is] a flexible instrument and capable of a good variety of synth sound styles, from modern, frequency-filling basses to trance-like chord progressions, bubbling FX and much more besides. It’s at its best when making the most of its voice modes, FM and ring mod and creating complex modern sounds rather than replicating vintage-style patches.”
