Modal Electronics

Modal Electronics create some of the most exciting, pioneering synth gear in the entire world. We’re proud to stock their complete range here at Andertons Music Co.

The brand was established in 2013, with Bristol quickly becoming their main base of operations. They were founded with this mission statement: to create a suite of synths that delivered cutting-edge updates to classic concepts and sounds, while retaining the innovation and style of contemporary/vintage synthesizers of yesteryear. 

First came the Modal 002 - a truly significant moment in the history of the instrument. It became the very first poly digital/analogue hybrid synthesizer to feature a transistor ladder filter, an ethernet connection (for seamless access to a web server for parameter tweaks), and 10,000 patch memories. That wasn't all though. It was also the first non-workstation synth to incorporate a full-colour display, plus support for high-resolution 192kHz/24-bit digital audio output via USB. 

They've continued to break new ground ever since. You just have to take a look at the three groups that make up their current-day product line-up to see that. The Creator Series (powerful and portable), the COBALT family (characterised by a virtual analogue architecture), and the ARGON (wavetable synths) all offer a distinct workflow and sound that's a joy to behold.
