Description & Specs

Condition: The keys are slightly scuffed and scratched.

SKULPT is a powerful desktop performance synthesiser that allows musicians to quickly sketch and perform music anywhere. This synthesiser features a unique 32-oscillator virtual analogue sound engine, carefully designed by the Modal developers in Bristol, UK. It’s unique synth architecture with 2 WAVE groups, incorporating 4-oscillators per voice let musicians, producers and DJs perform with classic synth sounds as well as create exciting new sound textures from soft to brutal.

Synth-Eldorado
Two WAVE groups per voice with 4 oscillators each provide deep hands-on control over the sound and sweep smoothly between sine, triangle, saw, square, PWM and Noise sources. Additional oscillator modulation using FM, Ring Modulation or the hugely powerful onboard LFOs unveil an unmatched potential for sound customisation.

The state-variable 2-pole filters morph from low pass through to band pass and through to high pass. With its resonance feature it picks out rich harmonics at high resonance levels.

Three dedicated envelopes for the filter, amp and modulation give excessive control of the dynamics and expression. The available 2 LFOs, one global and one polyphonic can be synced to internal or external tempo. The polyphonic LFO syncs also to a division of the fundamental frequency of the played notes for both brutal and subtle modulation of the sound.

Next-Gen Performances Out Of The Box
SKULPT supports MPE and offers musicians creative new musical ways to model sounds with your fingertips. Connect your MPE compatible MIDI controller and endeavour next-generation expressive sound articulations only possible with a genuine instrument like SKULPT.  

SKULPT has a deceptively capable real-time sequencer on board. It is pretty easy to capture performances, quantize, loop & hold them as well as capturing 4 lanes of Animation on the fly – this alone introduces some crazy modulation possibilities and is key to getting to know this synthesiser.

This coupled with the adaptable on-board arpeggiator, chord and transpose functions open an entire new world for complex and exciting synth sounds.

Polish With Effects
Built-in distortion (waveshaping overdrive) and delay effects add character and depth to the signal. The distortion delivers interesting overtone textures from subtitle to heavy overdrive.

The delay effect injects expressive complexity from short slap-backs and room-style reverb sounds to long overlaying or psychedelic echoes using the sequencer animation. To create chorusing and other time-based effects the delay can be modulated. Internal or external sync generate rhythmic interaction with the tempo of a track.

Open To All Environments
SKULPT has a comprehensive set of connections to power and control the synth using USB, monitor with headphones or using the dedicated line output, sync with external gear using the full-size MIDI in and out or the 3.5 mm Sync in or outputs.

The Global Tune Setting ensures a perfect integration into mixed setups with other, less accommodating equipment in studio and live applications, like analogue synthesisers or DJ turntables, which tend to be less precise in tuning.
