Overview by GAK

Modal Electronics have knocked it out of the park with their Cobalt series, reinvigorating and expanding upon classic analogue synthesis with their unique Extended Virtual-Analogue sound engine.

Modal’s Cobalt 8M is the most compact and portable version of all Cobalt synths, condensing the powerful sound engine, a wealth of features, tactile interface and extensive connectivity into a lightweight and easily transportable package. The Cobalt 8M is also rack-mountable and includes mounting brackets for 19" racks. If you’re using a rack-oriented setup for your studio or prefer to leave the synth in a rack offstage and use just a controller onstage for a less cluttered setup, the Cobalt 8M is a great choice.

If you’re using a controller without a mod or pitch control - no need to worry as the Cobalt8M is equipped with a robust X/Y joystick that can be assigned to a wide range of destinations via the Cobalt8M’s matrix. The Cobalt8 and Cobalt8X are available as keyboard-equipped, all-in-one solutions with high-quality Fatar keybeds.

The sheer amount of features and mind-blowing that Modal Electronics have packed into the Cobalt8M is astounding. We recommend the 8M if you need to save space, have a preferred master controller or opt to sequence from your DAW.
