Modal’s history has certainly been a curious one.
From the start with, whatever your opinion was of them, super high end machines both analog and digital with the 002 and 008. And then the lurch to the bare circuit boards of the first Craft synth. And then moderating slightly to the middle with the Skulpt and especially the Argons.
I see at least two possible holes in their offerings, middle level analog — and they sure have the chops for that, and a digital one notch up from the Argon. I also like the suggestion above of something that solidifies the Skulpt design.
At least Modal got out from under financial doom, though i don’t imagine they’re flush with cash yet either.
Another question — is this one also a creation by Jackson Almond, or does Modal trot out another engineer as seems to be their past pattern. (I say this mostly in jest, i really expect this to be done by Jackson Almond. They had though at least three other very good engineers previous to Almond,)
