Sonic State First Look: Modal Electronics SKULPT

Sonic State got an early preview for the recently announced Modal Electronics SKULPT. This is an impressively powerful mobile synth. It is designed with mobility in mind; offering both battery and USB power. The little device can produce some very big sounds with 4 Voice Polyphony, or stack 32 Oscillators in Monophonic mode. There's also a sequencer in here that can record automation, and a whole bunch of modulation options.

There will even be a dedicated iOS app for controlling it, like Modal's CraftApp. All for around $300! They're launching a Kickstarter tomorrow, when we will hopefully learn their shipping schedule.

Update: The Kickstarter is now live! Non-EU folks can pre-order for $274, while EU residents have to pay VAT pushing the price to £249 ($328). They hope to ship in November 2018!
