The Modal Argon 8X 61 Key 8 Voice Wavetable Synthesizer shares an identical sound engine to the original ARGON8. Features 61 keys with aftertouch, 8 voices of true polyphonic flexibility, and 120 carefully crafted wavetables split into 24 banks of 5 morphable waveform sets. Other features include 32 static wavetable modifiers, 32 high resolution wavetable oscillators, 8 types of oscillator modifier, 4 filter types and more!
The Argon 8X expands Modals product range, utilising much of the DNA from the popular Modal 002. The sound engine offer eight voices of true polyphonic flexibility. The Argon 8X can also utilise Argon8 Polychaining, which will enable any two Argon's to be in a master/slave configuration over DIN MIDI giving the user 16 note polyphony. The 120 wavetables onboard the Argon 8X provide a huge range of audio potential. Split into 24 banks of 5 morphable waveform sets, the wavetables cover a range of sounds from virtual analog classics to cutting edge EDM. These include many of the sounds available with the original Modal 002 as well as a whole range of mathematically generated tables.
32 static wavetable modifiers can be applied to the 120 wavetables to give a huge array of permutations and waveshapes. These include de-rez, wave folders, wave shapers, phase shapers and rectify. As well as this, 32 high-resolution wavetable oscillators, four per voice, ensure you’ll never run out of sound processing options. These oscillators can then be modulated using one of eight onboard modifiers including Phase Mod (FM), Ring Mod, Amp Mod, Hard Sync and Windowed Sync.
