It took just four hours for the new Modal Electronics Skulpt synthesizer to breeze past its £50,000 crowdfunding goal on Kickstarter. And with 29 days still to go this 4-voice polyphonic synth is funded to the tune of 142%.
After their success with the CRAFT Synth and CRAFT Rhythm DIY synth and drum machine / sequencer respectively, Modal have merged some of the tech from their higher-end machines into a portable package which sounds very impressive indeed.
Modal Skulpt Features
When (we think it's 'when' as opposed to 'if' Skulpt reaches its 200% funded stretch goal) Modal will provide every Skulpt synthesizer with a specially designed ptoective cover and base.
There's plenty ore included with Skulpt from the software editor that works with the CRAFT range of machines too, though its not required to use any of Skulpt's sounds.
Did we mention it's portable? Skulpt runs on USB or battery power, requires 6 x AA batteries.
With 16 capactive touch keyboard buttons and a built-in sequencer, you can pick up this 32-oscialltor monster of a polyphonic synthesizer from just over £200 (about $275 USD). It's an incredible price when you listen to the demos and get an idea what Skulpt is capable of sonically.
Price: from £208 GBP upwards
