The Modal Argon8 takes sound design to the next level, providing you with 24 banks of 5 morphable waveform sets. The wavetables span generations and genre, from classic analog waveforms to cutting-edge EDM styles. The new sound engine opens up a new world of synthesis creation, providing a wide-range of onboard controls to get hand-on with your tones.

The premium-grade Fatar keybed features velocity-sensitivity and aftertouch for fluid playability. It also features 32 high-resolution wavetable oscillators with 4 per voice and a choice of 8 different oscillator modifiers and modulation. The built-in 4-axis joystick can be assigned to a range of modulation destinations and can also be locked into place when desired. It comes jam-packed with controls and features to streamline your sound creation process. It also has a wide range of analog and digital connectivity and comes complete with a free dedicated app for Mac, PC, iOS and Android.
