NAMM 2024: Modal Carbon8 Sounds Only


video upload by sonicstate

"Jim Heywood from Earmonkey music responded to multiple requests via our Instagram comments to take a closer look at the Modal Electronics Carbon8.

It looks like after a period of uncertainty, that Modal will be back, and the Carbon8 will be in production.

Carbon 8 employs over 40 complex waveform algorithms, and is geared towards the more aggressive and modern spectrum of sounds. With two discrete oscillators, the Carbon 8 has a similar form factor to earlier Modal Synths, but has a new mixing stage with independent level controls for each oscillator."

NAMM 2024 - Modal - Carbon 8


video upload by sonicstate

"Christian from Modal Electronics unveiled their latest synthesizer, the Carbon 8, at NAMM 2024. This synthesizer is the culmination of Modal's years of experience and knowledge in developing wavetable and virtual analog synthesizers. The Carbon 8 boasts a sound engine that is twice as powerful as their previous models, the Argon 8 and Cobalt 8. It features two distinctive oscillators that generate up to 56 digital core waveforms, allowing users to mix algorithms and wavetables in one synthesizer. The Carbon 8 is designed to cater to modern music styles with rough, edgy sounds, while still offering features like a sequencer, arpeggiator, and various effects.

For more information on the Carbon 8 and other Modal Electronics products, you can visit their website. Stay tuned for updates on future projects from Modal at events like Superbooth. And for existing customers, Modal will continue to provide customer support and their app, which will be updated with a Carbon 8 version upon release.

Carbon 8 Available: Summer 2024. Price 1,099 USD"

Note auction links are affiliate links. See the site's privacy policy for more info.

This appears to be the first post to feature pics of the Soundart Chameleon. It was mentioned a couple of times in posts featuring Paula Maddox of Modal Electronics and vacaloco's Gorf development in 2008. See the Soundart label for more. Note there is also an unrelated Chameleon branded self contained modular synth.

From the auction:

"A rare synth/vocoder/fx processor in very good condition. There is a little rack rash and the top has some scratches (see pictures for details). It works perfectly and sounds awesome. The Soundart Chameleon is an amazing addition to your studio. It can host a legendary vocoder called Infiltrator (check out what gearspace says about Infiltrator) and some awesome synths---the best one being Austrailis. Peruse the website descriptions and sound examples for all the different skins you can load onto it, along with downloads of all the sysex files:

chameleon.synth.net/

To change skins, just hold SHIFT while you turn it on. It will display that it is waiting for the next skin. Then, use Bome SendSX to send it the sysex file of the next skin. You can find a link to SendSX here."

Luminous Trilogy & A CATALOGUE OF FM MATERIALS by Element433 ( a.k.a. Pere Villez)


via Element433 (Pere Villez)

"When I made the popular YouTube series 'FM Catalogue of Materials', many viewers commented that they would love to see some more of the 'music tech as cinema' style created in the videos.

My new project 'Luminous Trilogy' release, does exactly that. In part 1 'WTD', synths and synth technical diagrams, together with Pure Data/Max patches, become casual parts of the film's environment, which is set in an alt near future. Part 1 was realised with analogue modular, whereas Part 2 "Breath" was scored using binaural audio, VCV rack and live Indian tablas. Part 3 'Contrails' uses physical models, Samplicity's Berlin Studios and vintage FM hardware."

Update: Element433 has made the VCV patch and assets used in the film "Breath" below a free download. You can find instructions on downloading the patch and setting it up here: http://tinyurl.com/e433WpBrvcv.

Luminous Trilogy

video uploads by Element433 ( a.k.a. Pere Villez)

"Three music shorts around the theme of light, from incandescent urban folklore set in the near future, electric neon glowing medussae to impossible skies, all to the sound of dark ambient and techno-world music"

Playlist:

Walking The Dulzaina - Luminous Trilogy - Part 1
Walking The Dulzaina is an edited one-shot music film which details the manic walkthrough time-lapse of an imaginary synthesised dulzaina (Spanish folkloric instrument) being taken for a walk through the "Las Vegas" like dressed streets of a small village festive celebration set somewhere in the near future.

The visuals are nods to the Bladerunner, Lynch, Weirdcore and Kubrick where the glow of transparent neon CRTs, display technical diagrams with a music technology theme. Some suddenly slide up from the ground, while others cross from one side of the street to another.

The music is inspired by minimalism, industrial techno synth-folk where Steve Reich and Techno meet Raymond Scott and 1960's BBC radiophonic.

Musical Equipment Detail:

Intro: Moog Subharmonicon through Fairfield Randy's Revenge ring modular - into two crunchy Elby Systems stereo valve preamps and out into a stereo pair of Doepfer A-199 spring tanks).

Dulzainas: Buchla Easel Command sometimes untreated and sometimes solo through a J.H. 'Son of a Storm Tide' stereo analogue studio flanger (built by Van Daal Electronics (second dulzainas and very low transition whoooses). Buchla and Subharmonicon sync locked and clock divided by Ornaments and Crime clock divider.

Final wormhole sequence: Subharmonicon through stereo A-199 Doepfer spring reverbs and Paulstretched.

This work is not sponsored by any the manufacturers mentioned. They are personally purchased pieces of equipment.

Note: This site contains affiliate links for which it may be compensated.


via this auction

Note auction links are affiliate links. See the site's privacy policy for more info.

"The Modal 008R is increasingly becoming hard to come by and rarely come up for sale, especially since Modal Electronics has recently declared insolvency. This is a very underrated gem. For those who don't know, this synth is the brain child of George Hearn, the co-founder of the current synth manufacturer U.D.O. This synth is in mint condition. It looks and works great. The OS has been updated to version 1.03. This listing includes the original box, manual, and power cable.

The Modal Electronics 008R provides eight discrete voices of polyphony with an uncompromising analog architecture utilizing the highest grade components throughout."

Modal Electronics Modulus.002 Analog/Digital Hybrid 12-voice Synthesizer

Note: This site contains affiliate links for which it may be compensated.


via this auction

"Modal Electronics' Modulus.002 12-voice polysynth is an analog/digital hybrid keyboard synthesizer that bridges the gap between analog sound and digital convenience. Providing you twelve discrete voices of polyphony with the option of full multi-timbrality, you can play split keyboard parts or build a densely layered soundscape. The 002 features two NCOs and an LFO for each voice along with two sub-oscillators with individually variable waveforms that essentially give you four oscillators per voice. Add to those a global LFO, a range of modulation options, easy navigation, and semi-weighted keys with expressive aftertouch, and the Modal Electronic Modulus.002 synthesizer becomes the clear choice for an electronic musician who wants to evolve with the music-making landscape."

Goodbye Modal: The Downfall of Modal Electronics from an Insider's View?

Modal Electronics' Insolvent Case




Insolvent is when you are unable to pay your bills.

According to gov.uk, there is currently one case filed against Modal Electronics. Note this does not necessarily mean the end of Modal Electronics. I'm not crazy about sharing dirty laundry as this case could go away, but the news is being shared and synth news is definitely part of this site.

According to gov.uk's guidence:

"‘Insolvency’ describes both the situation an insolvent company is in, and also the various legal procedures for dealing with this situation under the Insolvency Act 1986.

There are 3 options that allow an insolvent company to continue trading. Directors can:

contact all your creditors to see if you can reach an informal agreement

enter into a company voluntary arrangement

put the company into administration, offering some respite from creditor action and enabling:

the company to continue

property to be sold

You also have the option of liquidating (‘winding up’) your company. This means the company is closed down and its assets are sold and distributed to its creditors."

Superbooth 2023: Modal - Limited Edition Cobalt And Argon 8


"At Superbooth 2023, Sonic State caught up with Christian from Modal Electronics who showcased the limited edition Argon 8 and Cobalt 8 synthesizers. In celebration of Modal Electronics' 10-year anniversary, the Argon 8 pays homage to the Modal 002 with its color scheme and comes with firmware version 3.0 and new features. The limited edition synthesizer will be available in stores in September and there will be only 100 units worldwide. It will be priced the same as the regular Argon 8, and it is only available in the 37 key version.

The Cobalt 8 synthesizer, which comes in the dark color scheme of the Modal 008, will be availablearound Christmas time. Modal Electronics is currently seeking customer feedback to decide if they will release the Cobalt 8 in a 37 key version, 61 key version, or as a module. If you want to get your hands on these limited edition Modals, keep an eye out for their release at the end of 2023."
