Modal Electronics, founded in 2013, is headquartered in Bristol, UK. At that time, the development
team at Modal felt vintage and contemporary synthesisers were lacking the innovative spirit bound
to these instruments from decades before. It was time for overdue updates to the old-school sounds,
aesthetics and concepts.

first synth to have 10,000 patch memories, an Ethernet connection to access an integrated webserver
to edit all parameters. The first non-workstation synthesizer to feature a full-colour display and the
