"Modal Argon8 is an 8-voice polyphonic wavetable synthesiser.

It features four digital oscillators per voice split into two controllable wavetables with one innovative offline wave modifier available per wavetable with 28 different options to redraw each wavetables and one modulatable oscillator modifier available per patch with 8 modifier types to choose from.

There are 4 flexible multi-mode filters and 3 dedicated flexible envelope generators for AMP, MOD and FILTER that can be accessed independently or all three simultaneously on board.

Argon8 also boasts a hugely powerful “Mod Matrix” with eight assignable slots and four additional fixed routes, 11 mod sources and 52 destinations.

The 4-axis joystick can be assigned to a huge range of modulation destinations and can be ‘locked’ in place when desired.

There are two Audio rate LFO’s with tempo sync (one poly, one global). Polyphonic LFO can sync to frequency divisions.

Argon8 has 12 on board FX; a waveshaping distortion that is followed by three incredibly powerful, independent and user configurable stereo FX engines that can create sophisticated Delays, lush Reverbs, Flanging, Phasing, and Rich Choruses to name a few.

The hardware has been manufactured with high-quality components: a powder coated black steel case, anodised aluminium top panel, endless encoders and a super bright white on black OLED screen.

Among the many connections, Modal Argon8 features a USB port to connect your synth to the MODALapp user interface on a computer tablet or phone. This can be used for preset design and management as well as updating the firmware on your Argon8."
