Unlock the true power of the Argon8 – firmware v3 has arrived!
Welcome to the future. Building on the success of the now iconic Argon8 wavetable synthesizer, Modal have been busy crafting the newest update, providing a wide variety of exciting new features, upgrades and enhancements. One of the most prominent new features is the free-running oscillator and vintage controls. Emulating the behaviour of classic synthesizers, Argon8’s free-running oscillators can be used for a variety of applications from creating long drone-style sounds to creating atmospheric melodies.

The new ‘Vintage’ parameter introduces variation between the voices, emulating the effect of aging components to give them a truly analog sound and feel. The sound shaping capabilities have also been expanded with the introduction of four new filter types: Ladder, Ladder Hybrid, Notch, Ladder Phase and Sallen-Key. There are also 15 new effects including a compressor, phaser, chorus, three-band EQ and a variety of new reverb algorithms. If that wasn’t enough, the factory preset bank has been heavily updated, allowing you to explore all the new features and upgrades included within the firmware v3 update.
