The Modern Modular Hybrid Synth

There’s something to be said for mastering the amazing sounds and complex programming of modular synths. In fact, to become a true master, you’ve got to hone your chops and dedicate beaucoup hours (and cash) building and mastering your rig. All in an effort to be able to punch up that sweet spot instantly.

Naaah… Skip all that

That’s where DV8 shines. DV8 delivers the sound, power and creativity of modular (and more), without the budget breaking price tag and time consuming programming.

With DV8, it’s as easy as turning a single knob.

And when you do, it sounds like you’ve become an all knowing, iconic analog synth programmer in the likes of Emerson, Wakeman, Jordan Rudess, Jean-Michel Jarre, Patrick Moraz. For those that doubt it can be so simple, just take a listen. All we can tell you… “If it sounds like you’re a master… You are!”

Master the Modular with the DV8 Experience

Modular / Eurorack hardware provides customizable signal flows consisting of oscillators, modulators, and sequencers. No doubt these synthesizers provide beautifully textured sounds, but modular gear has always been expensive and today’s analog / Eurorack gear is even more. DV8 draws inspiration from the Eurorack and modular style to bring you sounds and functionality of modular synths without the budget breaking price tag or the time consuming learning curve.

DV8 Dual Arpeggi8ors
An endless flow of ideas and creativity

Perhaps you’re inclined to Tangerine Dream or maybe you are an ardent proponent of the Berlin School, hardcore, trance, dub or just groovy pop music. Whatever your creative musical persuasion, you’ll find the DV8 Arpeggi8or a compelling source of rhythmic (and poly-rhythmic) inspiration. 

It’s easy to get a jump start with the Arpeggi8or too, just select from the 39 preset patterns and press play. Or, try randomize patterns to experience the ultimate in exploratory rhythms. 

That’s because DV8s dual Arpeggi8ors are an endless pathway to musical discovery. From simplistic pulsing grooves to ahrrythmic experimentations. Most importantly you’ll be generating patterns that you’d never discover on your own, left to your own devices. 

DV8’s dual Arpeggi8ors feature fully independent editable patterns with programmable step velocity, independent number of steps per pattern (1 to 16), independent gate slider; for setting relative note length and of course, dual Arpeggi8ors are easily mixed to your liking with DV8’s master blend and gain controls.  

And for added creativity and control, the dual Arpeggi8ors are coupled with advanced master controls like; Stereo – random note placement within the stereo field, Swing – note timing offsets for different feels, Latch – arp keeps playing after key release, Octave – sets the range in which to repeat the patterns, from -3 to +3. And for even more arp deviations, explore DV8’s 10 Arp Pattern settings like Up, Up & Down, Zig Zag Up & Down and As Played and Random for beautiful and unexpected musical results.

DV8ors Bring the Feedback

Once you've experienced DV8's modular sound design with the instantly gratifying satisfying big knob automation and sound-shaping controls, you'll be inclined to talk about it too. Here's what DV8ors are saying...

Straight up. I love it!



Five stars! Loved working with DV8 (beta). The sound design possibilities are limitless, and the GUI is extremely intuitive. (Fun to use too)



I really like the original approach that DV8 takes, the randomize function is a cool way to explore the sounds of the synth and a fantastic tool to release the creativity.
Another thing that I really liked is how fast you can create and edit sounds, you can move from a small keyboard sound to a massive braam with just one turn of a dial/click.
For all the possibilities that DV8 offe…

DV8 is an awesome synth! Perfect for what I wanted: to create hard bass sequences and more…

Davide Paterno


E x p a n s i v e. In both sound and inspiration the DV8 is large and in charge. When you can spend hours twiddling two knobs because in all the ways they warp the sound you know you have found a gem. A VST that doesn’t just sound good but looks good too. Not enough people value a good VST GUI and DV8 has that in spades. 10/10 would recommend, nay. WILL RECOMMEND. ACTIVELY RECOMMENDING.



The presets (beta) were quite good, excellent and inspiring starting points, The flow and voltage knobs are great features to tweak and play with the sounds of course and I also like how DV8’s sound design works very well in combination with Ambition. Sound Yeti, you definitely did a great job on DV8 and I look forward to the release!



DV8 Delivers! What I love most about this synth is its ease of use. Programming sounds has never been easier. You can dial in a great sound with minimal effort. Sound Yeti has yet to disappoint me (and I have all their instruments)! Another great release from the Sound Yeti Team! 

Patrick Carbone


Well, after checking it out (beta), I’m going rethink some of my future plugin investments. So versatile I’ll be able to use it on many many projects. The UI is “wow” and def makes it enjoyable to use. Sounds like its’ really expensive. Well done guys.

Vee Jay


So deceptively simple, so instantly powerful! DV8 has a very unique, very characteristic, wonderful sound of its own. Versatile for almost any style of music. I’m thrilled to have been part of the sound design team behind it! Way to go Sound Yeti.



DV8, It sounds fantastic! Very unique and versatile, also the UI and Big Knobs are amazing! I love it.
