Description

Modal's Argon 8M is a compact desktop version of the powerful Argon 8X synthesizer. It can be mounted in a 3U 19" rackmount, and offers the same processing power as its big brother in a smaller form factor, ideal for small spaces.
Sharing many of the features of the legendary Modal 002, the Argon 8M offers true eight-voice polyphony and can be connected to another Argon unit in a master/slave configuration using a DIN MIDI connection to give you 16-voice polyphony.

Easy to carry, the Argon 8M brings together a variety of features to create sounds intuitively such as 120 carefully designed wavetables, 32 static wavetable modifiers, 32 wavetable oscillators, 8 types of oscillator modifiers, 4 types of filters and more!

Characteristics

Ref : 93358
- Type of expander : synthesis
- Modeling synthesizer offering true 8-voice polyphony
- Robust steel and aluminum chassis
- 120 carefully crafted wave tables, divided into 24 banks of 5 sets of morphable waveforms, covering virtual analog classics up to advanced EDM and many models taken from the original Modal 002, as well as a full range of mathematically generated tables. Additional PWM bank and 4 noise / modulation banks accessible on oscillator 2
- 28 static wave table processors, including De-rez, Wave Folders, Wave Shapers, Phase Shapers and rectifiers which can be applied to 120 wave tables to give a staggering number of permutations and new forms of wave
- 32 high resolution wave table oscillators, 4 per voice, with 8 types of oscillator modifiers including: Phase Mod (FM), Ring Mod, Amp Mod, Hard Sync and Windowed Sync
- 1.54 inch wide OLED screen - which provides instant and permanent feedback to the user in reading / editing
- Continuous rotary potentiometers as standard on the whole synth
- 4-axis joystick which can be assigned to a large number of modulation destinations and virtually "locked" when desired
- Three dedicated envelope generators for AMP, MOD and FILTER which can be accessed independently or simultaneously, including the three negative versions (inverted)
- Bipolar two-pole resonant filter with morphing
- Waveform distortion
- Quick patch reminders: 4 locations
