Leaning on the heritage of Modal's legendary OO series synthesisers, ARGON8X is a modern wavetable synth for music performers, producers and sound designers. With it's transparent and rich sound, an array of realtime controls, full MPE support, a clear structured user interface and integrated performance tools, ARGON8X is a unique instrument, designed to deliver an unmatched sonic experience. A premium 61-note keyboard with aftertouch is the perfect playground for demanding artists. The rugged aluminium chassis and professional I / Os allow ARGON8X to be integrated into every studio and live setup. MODALapp gives easy access to all ARGON8X functions and runs on MacOS / Windows / iOS / iPadOS and Android devices and is also available in AU / VST3 plug-in formats as MODALplugin.

A Universe of Waves

ARGON8X's sophisticated wavetable engine generates thousands of different sonic combinations with its seamless waveform morphing feature. Explore ambient evolving textures, classic pads and modern chords, brutal basses, dark drones and psychedelic noise textures - ARGON8X is a true sound designer's playground. Process and cross modulate the waves using either the 32 static wavetable modifiers and unlock additional wavetable variations. With ARGON8X virtually every sound imagination comes to life.

Synth Extravaganza

Four morphable filter types deliver contemporary and classic options to shape sounds. Two flexible audio rate (1x polyphonic) LFOs can be routed to a huge amount of destinations using the modulation matrix and sync to internal or external tempo. Three dedicated envelopes for the filter, amp and modulation provide excessive control over dynamics and expression. ARGON8X's sophisticated 12-slot modulation matrix supports easy assignments of complex modulation routes to keep the sound evolving. 4 common modulation routings are pre-set here to free up space for more interesting ideas.

On the Move

Bring performance to a new level with the integrated 512-note Realtime / Step Sequencer with 4 powerful Animation Lanes, that instils massive and complex transitions to the sound in a way that LFOs and Envelopes simply won't provide. The polyphonic 64-note step sequencer mode enables easy step input for note and animation values to create exciting melodic patterns. Multiple sequencer trigger modes coupled with the powerful onboard arpeggiator (programmable up to 32 steps) and performance features such as Chord hold, Inversions, Transpose, Sustain Latch and the Joystick turn ARGON8X a performers and players dream.

Feel the Sound

ARGON8s professional approach to serious artists finds perfect expression in the rugged steel and aluminium chassis and the premium FATAR TP / 9S 61-note full-size key bed. The keys support channel aftertouch and deliver smooth action to express powerful playing performances. For direct access of the parameters, ARGON8X features 29 endless knobs, 24 buttons and an X / Y joystick for pitch and modulation.

Your Own FX

Reshape your sounds completely with the on-board stereo effects engine. ARGON8X's 3-slot FX engine enables in-depth programming and can combine up to 12 FX algorithms to add character and depth to your sound, including Distortion (waveshaping overdrive) Chorus, Phaser, Flanger (Pos), Flanger (Neg), Tremolo, LoFi, Rotary, Stereo Delay, Ping-Pong Delay, X-Over Delay and Reverb.

Connections for any Environment

With a comprehensive set of connections, ARGON8X feels home in every environment. Control the synth using USB, monitor with headphones or using the dedicated line outputs, sync with external gear using the full-size MIDI in and out or the 3.5 mm Sync in or outputs and take control of your sound using the built-in Sustain and Expression inputs. Expanding the sound of ARGON8X is possible by polychaining any two ARGON8 units for 16 voices and 64 oscillators.
