Modal Cobalt8 Virtual Analog Synthesizer


Modal Electronics introduced COBALT8, its new 8-voice VA synthesizer that promises an extended feature set. In other words, Model Electronics encourage players to go beyond the ‘real’ analog synths and do not underestimate the feature as it is far beyond the limits of its analog forefathers.


The new Cobalt8 VA synth features an 8-voice polysynth that boasts an innovative oscillator engine, a morphable 4-pole ladder filter, a multitude of modulation options, a real-time step sequencer and an arpeggiator. It has a 37-note Fatar keyboard, MPE support, effects and MODALapp integration.


In addition, VA synth has 64 independent oscillators and you can use up to eight per voice. Each of its algorithms has just two specially-selected controls – the oscillators can call on not only virtual analogue waveforms but also 34 complex algorithms like sync, ring modulation, waveform morphing and more.
