MODAL ELECTRONICS

Modal Electronics

Synthesizer
Analog synthesizers have shaped the sound of an entire generation. This powerful and inspiring aesthetic of analog waveforms forms the basis of the virtual analog COBALT8. But COBALT8 goes far beyond that, with its 34+ algorithms providing a significantly expanded sonic spectrum. COBALT8 - BEYOND ANALOG.

In addition to the new and innovative oscillator engine, COBALT8 features a new morphable 4-pole ladder filter with four different modes. Other highlights include Modal's extensive modulation options, an inspiring real-time/step sequencer, flexible arpeggiator, premium FATAR 61 keyboard, MPE compatibility, studio-quality effects and proven MODALapp integration. This makes COBALT8 the perfect synthesizer for anyone who wants to play a versatile electronic musical instrument with vintage synthesizer sounds and also enter new sonic dimensions.
