As part of the release of firmware v2.4, we are pleased to announce Volume 2 of our Factory Preset library for the ARGON8, ARGON8M and ARGON8X
IMPORTANT: Updating to firmware v2.4 then factory resetting your ARGON Series synthesiser will replace all sounds currently installed in the synth with the new Volume 2 factory library.
Ensure you backup any presets you want to keep with our MODALapp.
Please see our Modal Minute on how to back up your patches.
*Please note if you have upgraded to v2.7 of the app and are running MacOS lower than 10.14, you wont be able to export patches with that OS version. Do not update to v2.7 if you wish to use the export option.
If your ARGON unit shows firmware version 2.3 or lower, simply connect your synth to your preferred device via USB, open MODALapp and proceed to update your firmware. The software update should automatically make itself available. If not, you can go to the Settings tab and choose check for update.
Once firmware v2.4 is installed you wont immediately have access to the Volume 2 sounds so this is the last opportunity to back up any edited sounds you want to keep.
The final stage is to factory reset your unit to load the new Volume 2 presets. If you do not wish to use the Volume 2 sounds at this time, you may continue to use the current sounds installed, not do a factory reset and still have the benefit of the v2.4 changes.
Instructions how to factory reset are found here.
Or you can see our Modal Minute on Factory Reset here.
Once v2.4 and the factory reset is complete, you will now be able to use the new Volume 2 sounds.
