Product information - Modal Electronics Cobalt8

Virtual analog synthesizer

The Cobalt8 from Modal Electronics is an eight-voice virtual analog synthesizer with a 36-key Fatar keyboard. The synthesis is based on 34 different algorithms, which can generate more complex waveforms in addition to classic waveforms such as sine, pulse, triangle and sawtooth. The resonating four-pole ladder filter can be freely morphed using four different filter types. The built-in polyphonic sequencer and arpeggiator, as well as the built-in DSP effects give the Cobalt8 a lively character ad hoc.


  • 64 high-resolution virtual analog oscillators
  • Up to 8 per voice
  • Two independent oscillator groups with sine, pulse, triangle and sawtooth waveforms
  • 34 different algorithms, including: complex analog synthesis techniques, integrated crossmodulation (SYNC, RM and many others)
  • PWM
  • Smooth morphing between VA waves
  • Bit crushing, filtered noise


Four-pole, morphable ladder filter with resonance and four switchable configurations. The cutoff frequency is controlled by the large endless potentiometer, which allows a precise and sensitive adjustment of the filter. Below this are the controls for resonance and for morphing, which allows stepless crossfading between four different filter characteristics (morphing). This function, in conjunction with the complex oscillators, allows remarkably abstract sounds to be formed, which predestines Modal Electronics Cobalt8 for sound design.


Three dedicated envelope generators for AMP, MOD and FILTER that can be accessed independently or simultaneously, including negative (inverted) versions for MOD and FILTER ENVs. Three audio LFOs with tempo sync (two poly, one global) with seven different waveforms. Eight assignable modulation slots plus four fixed modulation routings for a total of 12 modulation sources and 55 modulation destinations.

Sequencer and Arpeggiator

Polyphonic realtime sequencer with 512 notes with four additional tracks for parameter animations.
Flexible and programmable arpeggiator with 32 steps and pause function. Complex progressions with up to 2048 steps possible before repeating.


Three independent, powerful and user-configurable stereo FX engines for Chorus, Phaser, Flanger (Pos), Flanger (Neg), Tremolo, LoFi, Rotary, Stereo Delay, Ping-Pong Delay, X-Over Delay and Reverb, which can be arranged in any order.
