The Cobalt 8x is a virtual analog 8-voice synthesizer.

The COBALT8X is a synthesizer using virtual analog technology, which emulates the warm and powerful sounds of the synthesizers of the past, with its characteristic aesthetics. This digital technology allows musicians to develop all their creativity by going beyond the limits of the analog synthesizers of the time, to explore new sounds and new sound textures.
The COBALT8 offers a number of impressive features that are hard to imagine on a single analog synthesizer.
The COBALT8 is equipped with the same famous 61-note keyboard from the Italian manufacturer FATAR TP/9S as its predecessor ARGON8X, guaranteeing a very high quality of workmanship. Sensitive to velocity and with an aftertouch, this keyboard is your ideal playing companion. The interface includes 29 endless encoders and 24 buttons, as well as a 4-axis joystick to which a large number of modulations can be assigned. The USB connection offers the possibility to view the many parameters of the keyboard's filters, LFO or envelope in real time with impressive clarity.
