Modal Electronics Argon8

The Argon8 is the latest creation of Modal Electronics. It takes that benchmark wavetable sound and brings it into a more compact and price-conscious space.

Inside this synth are 64 oscillators with 4 per voice in all modes and up to 8 per voice in certain modes for some enormous sounds. There are 120 wavetables to choose from covering classic waves, modern sounds and a whole range of mathematically generated waves from the Modal 002. These can be updated and expanded via the Modal App.

There are 28 wavetable processors that can act upon the waves doing things like de-rez, wavefolding, shaping, phasing and rectifying. This gives a huge amount of scope for sound design, modulation and getting crazy with waveshapes. There are three dedicated envelope generators one for each of the amplifier, modulators and filter. The filters are 2-pole resonant and there are two audio rage LFOs. There’s a modulation matrix with eight assignable slots and four fixed routes giving 12 x 52 destination.

The Argon8 also comes with an arpeggiator that is programmable up to 2048 steps before repeating. Next to this there are also a sequencer with 512 steps, input quantise and four animation tracks.

The Argon8 also features 3 engines with modulators, delays, reverbs and alls sorts of distortions.

Modal Electronics Argon8

• True 8 voice polyphonic
• Mono-timbral

• 120 carefully crafted wavetables split into 24 banks of 5 morphable waveform sets, covering virtual analogue classics through to cutting edge EDM and many from the original Modal 002 as well as a whole range of mathematically generated tables. Additional PWM bank and 3 noise/modulation banks accessible on Oscillator 2
• 32 static wavetable processors including de-rez, wave folders, wave shapers, phase shapers and rectify that can be applied to the 120 wavetables to give a mind boggling array of permutations and new waveshapes
• 32 high resolution wavetable oscillators, 4 per voice, with 8 types of oscillator modifier including: Phase Mod (FM), Ring Mod, Amp Mod, Hard Sync and Windowed Sync
• Voice Drift and Width controls that help to create massive stereo soundscapes

• FATAR TP/9S Full size keys with both velocity and aftertouch, 37 on the ARGON8 and 61 on the ARGON8X
• 1.54 inch large OLED display – that provides instant visual feedback to the user at all times of playing/editing
• Multiple keyboard modes, Mono, Poly, Unison 2, unison 4, unison 8, Stack 2 and Stack 4
• Inbuilt sophisticated programmable arpeggiator of 32 steps with rest capability with up to 2048 steps before repeating
• Glide/Portamento with both legato and staccato modes

• Two pole morphing resonant filter with multiple filter types
• Filter can be morphed from low pass, through band pass, to high pass

• Hugely powerful “Mod Matrix” with eight assignable slots with four additional fixed routes, 11 mod sources and 52 destinations
• A 4-axis joystick that can be assigned to a huge range of modulation destinations and virtually ‘locked’ when desired
• Three dedicated envelope generators for AMP, MOD and FILTER that can be accessed independently or all three simultaneously including negative (reverse) versions
• Two Audio rate LFO’s with tempo sync (one poly, one global). Polyphonic LFO can sync to frequency divisions

• Waveshaping distortion
