Modal Electronics SKULPT-SE Portable Polyphonic Virtual Analog Synth

Written by

Will Brook-Jones

The SKULPT SE from Modal Electronics builds on its highly regarded predecessor - the SKULPT - in a number of exciting ways. A compact design (powered via battery or USB) ensures that you can take this lightweight polyphonic virtual analog synthesizer wherever it's needed; compose, produce, and perform effortlessly on-the-move. 

Key Features 

  • Lightweight construction allows for production and performance on-the-go. 
  • Battery or USB powered. 
  • Innovative 32-oscillator virtual analog sound engine. 
  • 2 WAVE groups (four oscillators per voice, 12 slot modulation matrix, digital effects, and a morphable 2-pole resonant filter. 
  • Built-in arpeggiator. 
  • 256-note sequencer. 
  • Support for MPE. 
  • 128 preset sounds to experiment with. 
  • Compatible with the free MODALplugin and MODALapp for computers, laptops and smartphones.  
  • Cross-compatible with the standard SKULPT (polychain and exchange patches for even more creativity).  

Meet SKULPTsynth SE

Portable Potential 

Utilise the innovative 32-oscillator sound engine, bolstered by 2 WAVE groups with a 12-slot modulation matrix, fully morphable 2-pole resonant filter, four oscillators per voice, and a suite of digital effects to craft your sounds. Each piece of the architecture contributes to a deep playing experience that belies its smaller dimensions.

That's not all though; an in-built 256-note sequencer and arpeggiator gives you the tools needed to build dynamic melodies and patterns in an instant. Add in 128 contrasting preset sounds, and support for MPE, and there's plenty here to experiment with. 

Modern Integration 

If you're not satisfied with the SKULPT SE as a standalone unit, an entirely cross-compatible infrastructure ensures that you can swap patches and polychain it with the standard SKULPT. You'll also be able to use your SKULPT SE in conjunction with the free MODALplugin and MODALapp for your smartphone, laptop or computer, for even more options.
