Modal SKULPTsynth SE virtual analog synthesizer now shipping
Modal Electronics has just confirmed the immediate availability of the SKULPTsynth SE from all Modal resellers internationally.
Fusing a slim form factor with traditionally colored, black and white touch keypads, easier to read front panel descriptors and improved built quality, SKULPTsynth SE provides the ultimate platform to create without limitation, wherever your creativity takes you.
Under the hood, SKULPTsynth SE features a next-generation synth engine powered by dual WAVE groups per voice, each with four oscillators (a total of 8 oscillators per voice) that allow users to meticulously craft flavorful sonic fundamentals. Timbre adjustment is a breeze thanks to SKULPT SE’s state-variable 2-pole filters that morph from low pass through to bandpass and high pass. With its resonance feature, it picks out rich harmonics at high resonance levels. Shape your sound for optimum articulation with three envelopes that provide extensive control of the dynamics and expressive output of the sound. Finally, two LFOs, one global and one polyphonic, can be synced to internal or external tempo, and the integrated delay and distortion effects give even more options to craft your signature sound.
For extended expressive capability, SKULPT SE supports MPE and is the most affordable MPE hardware synthesizer available on the market today. For creators seeking new musical ways to perform with synthesizer sounds, this MPE support, fused with the integrated real-time sequencer and arpeggiator, are the perfect platforms for immersive, expressive jam sessions.
Packed with 127 all new expertly curated patches, SKULPT SE offers a vast library of contemporary sounds applicable to all genres. Moreover, it is fully backward compatible with the original SKULPTsynthesiser, providing access to the full back catalogue of patches available from Modal’s website and 3rd party sound designers. Managing and creating patches couldn’t be simpler courtesy of the MODALapp, available for all major computer and mobile platforms as a free download from the Modal website.
In tandem with the retail availability of SKULPTsynth SE, Modal Electronics are also releasing a SKULPTsynthesiser firmware update featuring a raft of workflow enhancements plus poly-chain support in mixed configurations with the SKULPTsynth SE. The new firmware is available via MODALapp.
SKULPTsynth SE is available for a suggested retail price of £169.99 GBP, 199.99 EUR or $199.99 USD. Prices incl. VAT where applicable.
