Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth – New From Softube

Softube have released Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth, available at the intro price of £67.09 / $84.49, increasing to £84.08 / $105.89).

The raw sound of the original hardware is the stuff of dance dreams. But the unique and inspiring sequencer and arpeggiator took it from a muted debut to full techno colour. Softube recreated every speck of the original circuitry, interactions, and straightforward workflow to give you the only plug-in with a sound, feel, and interface that stays true to the most-used mono synth of the ‘80s and ‘90s. 

Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth is in the house.

  • A ’90s techno idol accurately emulated for faithful sound and feelings
  • The authentically inspiring sequencer and arpeggiator of the up-all-night original
  • Two versions included: the instrument and five modules for Modular

When it comes to creating equipment that enhances workflow and offers the most-supreme quality of sound, Softube’s reputation is rock solid and illustriously long. Softube’s partnerships with premium brands like Tube-Tech, Solid State Logic, Chandler Limited, Weiss Engineering, and Trident have traversed decades.

Softube constructed Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth on this legacy of creativity, passion, and enthrallment with details. Because to create tools that innovate and elevate, you have to have heart, soul, and Rock & Roll Science.

The original has been called the sound of electronic music. And Softube’s Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth embodies those iconic lead, bass, and arpeggiated sounds in plug-in perfection. Every circuit and interaction is modelled in glorious detail to preserve the proper interplay between sections and the unmistakable dry mono sound. It’s fun, sounds fantastic, and is still quick and easy to use – more so in fact. 

The hardware put techno on a roll. And the sequencer and arpeggiator were the main reason. Devotees could let go of the keyboard and focus on wielding the oscillator, filters, and other controls. Softube Model 82 plugin provides the same performance and experimentation opportunities optimized for the DAW. And you don’t have to be a trained pianist to play it. Run the sections freely based on the Internal Clock/LFO speed or DAW synced them to 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, or 1/32. The outcome is the approachability and spontaneity that made the original a sleeper hit.

Softube wouldn’t be Softube if they didn’t give you an accurate emulation, plus added modern features. Softube has kept the delightfully straightforward workflow but adjusted the labelling and layout so you can find the sound you want even faster. Softube gave Model 82 a new drive knob that lets you push it, just like they did in the heyday, even more readily. And a new doubling knob enables Model 82 to hold its own in modern stereo productions while retaining its sonic essence.

This synthesizer gained infamy at the all-night dance parties of the late ’80s and early ’90s. Softube’s expert modelling of the controls and circuits – including the famous sequencer and arpeggiator – makes for an authentic and easy-to-use instrument. The added modern features – like doubling and drive – and a refreshed layout help it excel in the DAW. Play it live or put it on a production to effortlessly get the cutting techno sounds that took it from commercial flop to underground success.

Model 82 for Modular offers five fully integrated instrument sections as individual modules: VCO, LFO, VCF-VCA, FX, and ENV. Plug them into your Eurorack system and add more creativity and inspiration with every module. Combine single components of the synthesizer in a modular workflow to build patches – or one monster synth patch! – and get the authentic sounds that defined techno. Or create inconceivable combinations that no other hardware or software can deliver.

Features include:

  • An accurate emulation of the most-used mono synth of the late ’80s & early ’90s.
  • The dry mono sound of the original hardware, authentically captured.
  • The sequencer and arpeggiator that defined techno – now with DAW sync.
  • Two versions included: the instrument and five modules for Modular.
  • Three original, selectable color schemes for max inspiration.
  • Added modern features, such as stereo doubling and drive.
  • An enhanced version of the original, easy-to-use layout.
  • A side panel with velocity and aftertouch control of the VCF and VCA.

The Model 82 Sequencing Mono Synth is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX) and requires an iLok account.
