Modal 001 (for sale)

Modal 001 (here with the lether side panels of the earlier versions)

The little duophonic (2 voice) brother of the Modal 002 got the very same sound features, but less keyboard range and less encoders. It a very portable synth in a sturdy all metal housing with leather side panels on the earlier versions, later thick black plastic.

This British synth got digital NOS oscillators (not based on fixed sample rate = less aliasing) and analog filters for its 2 voices.
All those knobs are endless encoders. The display is a coloured one. And the sound is the best of both worlds:

Added also, is the feature to use the provided suboscillators of both oscillators not only with the typical square wave but also with the same waveshape as the oscillator itself. Some nice filter drive is added via a dedicated parameter in the mixer section. The transistor cascade filter got a unique Slope parameter to blend it from a 4-pole lowpass to 2 -pole bandpass to 1-pole lowpass. The envelopes are very well scaled to get fast timings and long sweeps in their range. Two LFOs are available. Added is also a multiple row 32 step sequencer, a parameter sequencer of several rows triggered per note (called "Animator") and an arpeggiator.
Of cause the used Fatar keybed is velocity and aftertouch sensitive.
And there is more then enough memory to store your sound and sequences and animations in one of the 9999 memory locations per type on board.
