|The Modal 008 is an 8-voice analogue synthesizer with two 100% analogue VCO’s per voice with two sub oscillators, an innovative and extremely flexible 15 multi-mode filter, VCA, 11 modulation sources, including two audio rate LFOs, with unlimited destinations and a very powerful Sequencer and Arpeggiator.
The hardware has been manufactured with high-quality components: FATAR semi-weighted five octave key mechanism with aftertouch, black metal case, aluminum turned encoders and high quality 4.3” LCD screen. Among the many connections, Modal 008 features an ethernet port to connect your synth to your network and enable updates via the internet (no need for MIDI sysex dumps) and also access to the Modal cloud features and HTML Web User Interface.

||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.
||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
|Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
