Cutting Edge Wavetable Synth Module

Cutting edge synthesizer with 120 custom-crafted wavetables. The Modal Argon8M Module 8-Voice Polyphonic Wavetable Synthesizer bases its designed around the revolutionary new wavetable engine, inspired by the success of the Modal 002.

Leaning on the heritage of our legendary OO series synthesisers, ARGON8M 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 straightforward, structured user interface and integrated performance tools, ARGON8M is a unique instrument, designed to deliver an unmatched sonic experience.

ARGON8Ms professional approach to serious artists finds perfect expression in the rugged steel and aluminium chassis. The desktop design fits on every producer's table. Included rackmounts help to mount ARGON8M into a live or studio rack. For direct access of the parameters, ARGON8M features 28 endless knobs, 24 buttons and an X/Y joystick for pitch and modulation. 

Reshape your sounds completely with the on-board stereo effects engine. ARGON8M's 3-slot FX engine enables in-depth programming and can combine up to 11 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.

With a comprehensive set of connections, ARGON8M 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 our outputs and take control of your sound using the built-in Sustain and Expression inputs. Expanding the sound of Agron8 is possible by polychaining any two ARGON8M units for 16 voices and 64 oscillators.

Available as a standalone app for MacOS, Windows, iOS, iPadOS or Android systems and in VST3 and AU plug-in formats it is the perfect companion for synth enthusiasts looking to deep dive to all sound forming and performance parameters to create their own signature sounds, and to backup and manage patches and sequences.
