Studio Electronics Boomstar Modular System STE. 16 Module
Studio Electronics STE. 16, the second collaboration between Studio Electronics and eowave designer Marc Sirguy, is a dual LFO featuring a high-frequency mode and complex waveform mixing possibilities. STE. 16 produces thousands of different modulation and audio frequency shifts and wiggles.
STE. 16's amplitude modulation, frequency modulation and waveform mixing/blending push the envelope far above and beyond typical/classic four-waveform LFOs' construction and limit. Its 1 SHOT function dramatically transforms STE. 16 into a punchy and varied percussive tool; applied to an external VCA, one can generate compact and expansive, concussive encounters. More experimental tonal space can be explored via the AM function, with LFO1's starting rate somewhere near the 5Hz low end of the STE.'s vibrational spectrum and LFO2 ultimately demanding its 6kHz scream, shatter and fracture ceiling of thrills and audio frequency chills.
With sixteen waveforms per LFO, setting the initial fragmentizing, gyrating, lo-fi digital oscillation process can be a most impulsive and highly engrossing pursuit.
- Module controls
- SPEED knobs: set the rates of LFOs 1 and 2.
- 1-SHOT switches: in this mode the LFO waveform plays once and needs to be triggered again via the RESET input.
- HI/LO switches: In HI mode (6kHz at the top of its range), the LFO reaches the audio range — think lo-fi digital oscillator. In LO mode (starting at 5Hz), a very patient 3:40 long sweep is possible.
- WAVE knobs: Selects one of 16 different LFO waveforms: triangle, sine, dome, ramp up, ramp down, staircase, square, 1/2 square, impulse, four decreasing squares, random, random increasing, random pulse width, random triangles, pitched noise or digital noise.
- FM/M/AM switch: FM setting offers frequency modulation from LFO2 on LFO1, while the AM setting offers amplitude modulation from LFO2 on LFO1. The center M position offers a mix of LFO1 and LFO2.
- MIX knob: Sets the amount of modulation in both FM and AM modes, or sets the mix between LFO1 and LFO2 in mix mode.
- Patch points
- MX output: mix output of LFO1 and LFO2.
- CV IN 1 and 2: sets LFO1 and LFO2 speeds via external control voltage.
- RESET 1 and 2: resets the LFO waveforms.
- OUT 1 and 2: balanced LFO outputs.
