Argon

By Chrisfoo on March 15, 2020 10:33 pm

I picked up a Modal Electronics Argon8 (wavetable synth) last week and made this short track while experimenting with it.  Its a bit different than what I'm used to as far as sound design goes, but I'm getting the feel for it and have been getting it to produce some pretty sweet tones.

Nice! Cool to hear something a bit different from your usual. Such lovely tones in there. Is that all from the Argon8?

Thanks dude, yeah I had fun with this one.  Yep, everything besides the guitar and drums are from the Argon.  I did some enhancement with reverbs/delays in the DAW, but thats it.

It is always such a pleasure to get your hands on a new synth, it sounds like you had a good time! Very sweet melodies, the Argon soundswarm and lush big_smile

Great job dude. The rolling synths give a real nice vibe.

Very nice vibe!

Man, got some nice sounds out of this synth. I really dig the guitar tone + the synth playing the melody.

Damn yeah you got some really nice tones out of that.  Definitely a different style for you.  It's a pleasure to listen to.  I agree with @mikememo: I really like the guitar tone on top of the synth.  Nice work

really love the atmospheric vibe from this wb.  that synth sounds like a blast to mess around with, im going to look it up right now on youtube and check it out.  im really loving how youre pushing out a variety of different sounds week to week in the synth department.

Really cool sound coming from the Argon8.  The guitar is a nice compliment to all of the synth elements.  Nice work!

That certainly is different, but I approve of this direction as well. There're great sounds coming out of that.

Love that pretty sweet moog like lead synth and all the pads.  Gives you a totally different sound! Cool doubling along on the guitar. Nice work!
