Modal Electronics, a leading global synthesiser manufacturer, has just announced an all-new firmware update for their critically-acclaimed feature-packed ARGON-Series synthesisers.

New in Firmware v2.6
Firmware v2.6 adds 12 new Wavetable Banks containing 60 all-new Waveforms. Now, producers, performers and sound designers can experience immediate access to two independent wave-groups each containing 180 carefully crafted wavetables split into 36 banks of 5 morphable waveform sets; there’s even an additional PWM bank and 3 noise/modulation banks accessible on wave-group 2.
In addition, users can now effortlessly link OSC2 tuning to OSC1 frequency via a handy OSC2 Tune Mode control. Fuse all of this with 32 static wavetable modifiers including, de-rez, wave folders, waveshapers, phase shapers and rectify, all of which can be applied to the 180 wavetables – not to mention 8 types of oscillator modifier – and the sonic possibilities are virtually limitless.
Firmware version 2.6 is available now as a free update for the ARGON8, ARGON8X ARGON8M via the free MODALapp https://www.modalelectronics.com/modalapp/
