I too hope Modal releases a desktop/rack version.

it's also that they are showing a work-in-progress synth. as far as i understand it's not ready yet (beyond a different anodising approach) so they can't show too much the workflow. give it a few weeks. i'm sure they'll show up at sonic state with a full video showing the entire synth engine and programming details. some features they talk about but don't really show them in detail. i'd jump on a desktop version as well but at least it's small with only 3 octaves. probably similar to the minilogue

I contacted them directly and they said -->

"I'm afraid Modal doesn't comment on future product developments, and right now, Argon8 is only available in a 37 key format. But we will obviously keep a close eye on interest from customers for other formats."

I take that to mean, "no plans for it, but anything is possible down the road."

The other guys were bringing new products that were more or less ready to go, and will be available for purchase very soon. Modal brought a product that by their own admission was not complete. only a fraction of the features were actually available on these Proto types. I think that was a missed opportunity. I am keeping an eye on this instrument, and I hope that they can quickly complete the firmware and Find some ways to demonstrate the real capabilities of this thing.

Things I’ve found out that are cool:

1. The 512-step sequencer also records four lanes of automation, and you can record only automation (no notes) to create rhythmic textures as you play.

2. The per-voice LFO can be clocked to run at a subdivision of the oscillator’s frequency, allowing you to create shimmering LFO effects where every voice’s LFO is running at a unique speed, but all controlled from one LFO.

3. The arpeggiator can work independently for each voice, allowing you to go into quasi-generative territory.

They should be grabbing everyone’s attention and make sure they know about compelling features like this, in addition to creating a collection of killer sounds.

isn't the sequencer polyphonic too? Certainly sounds like it from the end of the Andertons vid.
