NAMM 2019 – New Synth Releases From Modal Electronics

Modal Electronics CRAFT SYNTH 2.0

Modal Electronics have traditionally been associated with high-end halo synthesiser products, but with the diminutive MODAL CRAFT SYNTH 2.0, they have brought their sound and philosophy to well within the reach of pretty much anyone. The new second iteration of CRAFT SYNTH has a snappy new suit, is more robust, and offers some impressive new features when you consider its ‘cheap as chips’ price point.

So what exactly do we have here? Well, the CRAFT SYNTH 2.0 is an 8 oscillator monophonic wavetable synthesiser in a box with a footprint about the size of a CD case. Featuring 40 waveforms ranging from virtual analogue through digital and generative waves some of which originate from the truly mighty Modal 002. A full set of features and specifications can be found in the features tab. For now, if you are not familiar with CRAFT SYNTH 2.0 check out the video below to hear and see it for yourself.


SKULPT is an all-new 4 voice polyphonic synthesiser from MODAL ELECTRONICS. Sporting no fewer than 32 oscillators, (yes that is right thirty-two!), the SKULPT is a super powerful desktop synthesiser.
