[Musikmesse] Modal 001 compact synth

The Modal 002 hybrid synth now has a little brother, the 001 duophonic and bitimbral model that is introduced at Musikmesse today.

Features of this new Modal 001:

  • Hybrid analog and digital architecture
  • 2-voice duophonic and bitimbral synth that uses the same architecture as the 002
  • 2 oscillators per voice and two sub-oscillators that can be switched to operate with a traditional square waveform or have the same wave as the main oscillator, so you can benefit from 4 oscillators per voice
  • 50+ different waveforms ranging from classic analog to digital creations
  • 4-pole 24 dB/octave transistor Ladder-type filter designed by Modal with morphing or “polesweeping” characteristics that allows from changing from 4 pole to a one-pole 6 dB and anything in between
  • 2 LFOs, one per voice and one global
  • 2-track, 12-row and 32-step sequencer with MIDI sync and dynamic transpose
  • Arpeggiator with multiple modes, including Hold
  • Modal Electronics Animator that allows for sequencing control patterns
  • Ethernet port for update via internet and access to the Modal Cloud features
  • 4.3” display
  • 6 preset banks for quick recall
  • VCA and VCF envelope generators
  • 3-octave keyboard
  • 4 CV inputs and outputs
  • 2 audio inputs
  • MIDI in, out and through
