8-voice Analog Polysynth in a Module

Modal Electronics' 002R 8-voice polysynth is an analog/digital hybrid rackmountable synth module that bridges the gap between analog sound and digital flexibility. Providing you eight discrete voices of polyphony with the option of full multi-timbrality, you can play split keyboard parts or build a densely layered soundscape. The 002R features two NCOs and an LFO for each voice along with two sub-oscillators with individually variable waveforms that essentially give you four oscillators per voice. Add to those a global LFO, a range of modulation options, and easy navigation and the Modal Electronic 002R synthesizer becomes the clear choice for an electronic musician who wants to evolve with the music-making landscape.

Modal Electronics 002R 8-voice Polysynth Module at a Glance:
  • The precision of digital with analog sound
  • A synthesizer with the power of the Cloud
  • Powerful and flexible sequencing capabilities
  • Flexible input and output options
The precision of digital with analog sound

The 002R's analog/digital hybrid nature provides 8 discrete voices of polyphony with full multi-timbrality. Each voice has two NCOs (Numerically Controlled Oscillators) that provide super-high resolution, stability, and vast amounts of waveforms to choose from. Add to the NCOs two sub-oscillators that you can switch from square wave to match the waveform of the main NCO, essentially giving you four oscillators per voice - the potential soundscapes you can build are limitless. A distinct ladder filter shifts from 24dB/octave four-pole transistor to a 6dB/octave one-pole filter and everything in between, producing amazing effects you can't get from just any synth. The voices also have their own individual LFO as well as a global LFO and huge range of modulations, giving you more sound to create with.

A synthesizer with the power of the Cloud

As you look over the 002R's screen, you'll notice an icon that gives you access to the new cloud system via the Ethernet port. This open-platform Cloud allows completely internet-based updates for profile settings, patches, sequences, and more - no more time-intensive MIDI SysEx dumps! Ethernet connectivity also allows you to edit and build sounds on your computer and move them to the 002R's sound bank. Over the years here at Sweetwater, we've seen a lot of combinations of analog audio components with digital programming capabilities, and the 002RR is one that truly leverages the best of both worlds.

Powerful and flexible sequencing capabilities

The 002R features sequencing options that give you tons of onboard flexibility for sequencing. The built-in 12-track, 12-row, 32-step sequencer allows you to create amazingly complex sequences. The multi-mode arpeggiator includes a 'hold' mode, letting you use the arpeggiator and sequencer together to create sequences on-the-fly and save them for later recall and editing. The Animator function gives you the ability to sequence any parameter including filter transitions, wave forms, and modulation. Once you've created a patch or sequence that you love, simply save it to a slot in your quick recall bank. You can use the bank to store often used patches, or use it to get rid of your setlist by saving each song in its own slot for quick and easy transitions during the gig.

Flexible input and output options

The 002R features balanced XLR and unbalanced TRS outputs for direct input into your amp, mixer, or audio interface. A D-sub connection provides individual outputs for each of the synth's eight voices, giving you flexibility for advanced routing options and outboard processing. You also get two audio inputs for processing external audio through the 002R's onboard filter section, expanding your sonic possibilities. And the two expression pedal inputs have one-button parameter assignments, adding even more your performance capabilities.

Modal Electronics 002R 8-voice Polysynth Module Features:
  • Rackmountable 8-voice synth module
  • Pure analog signal path from oscillators to output
  • Two audio inputs for internal audio processing from the VCF onwards
  • Individual output per voice via D-sub connection
  • Unique analogue filter design with unusual morphing capabilities
  • Digital NCOs for stability and expanded sound-building abilities
Modal's 002R gives you digital flexibility and analog sound!
