A true 8-voice polyphonic, mono-timbral synth with 61-key Fatar keybed and sequencing.
The Modal Electronics Argon8X is an 8-voice polyphonic wavetable synthesizer. The Argon8X has all the same features of the Argon8, but features a larger 61-key Fatar keybed (C to C). Like the Argon8, the Argon8x has numerous encoders and a super-bright, white-on-black OLED screen.
The Modal Argon 8X has four digital oscillators per voice split into two controllable wavetables. You have 32 different options to redraw each wavetable with its innovative offline wave modifier. The modulable oscillator modifier on each patch also has eight modifier types.
The Argon8X offers four flexible multi-mode filters and three dedicated, flexible envelope generators. These include AMP, MOD and FILTER. Each can be accessed independently or be controlled simultaneously.
Argon8X boasts a powerful Mod Matrix with eight assignable slots and four additional fixed routes, 11 mod sources and 52 destinations. The four-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. Argon8X has 12 onboard FX: a waveshaping distortion followed by three independent and user-configurable stereo FX engines that can create sophisticated delays, lush reverbs, flanging, phasing, rich choruses and much more.
Along with a full complement of I/O, the Argon8X features a USB port to connect your synth to the MODALapp user interface on a computer tablet or phone. This can be used for creating and managing and presets, as well as updating the firmware on your Argon8.
The Argon8X’s road-ready chassis is manufactured with high-quality components. It has a powder-coated black steel case and anodized aluminum top panel.
