Back to the raw power and purity of non-programmable discrete analog, where Studio Electronics started in 1985. The snap and punch of hardware envelopes drive Boomstar's brilliant voltage-controlled circuits with unparalleled sonic integrity and versatility. Boomstar is the ultimate desktop analog synthesizer for those who remember and still desire the electronic analog sound that changed the world, and for seekers who have yet to discover that magic and delight in their time.
Driven by rapid-fire hardware envelope snap and near-modular sound flexibility at the flip of any of its 20 toggle switches, the Studio Electronics Boomstar desktop synth is a performer and sound designer's waking dream. The Boomstar foundation — two oscillators, stackable waveforms with sub-oscillator, two envelopes, invertible, loopable, with 'drone' and 'master' mode — is accented expressively by hardware x-mod and exponential glide, extensive modulation routing and a flexible software LFO jacked for heavy lifting and fine-tuned experimentation — even go 'off synth' with the external audio input and color exotic oscillations.
The quick-turn shaft pots along the bottom for the hardware ring mod, noise, filter feedback and VCO levels make vital sonic change intimate, immediate and indispensable, while the adjacent overdrive switch adds warmth and edge. Thirty-one pots ensure fluid, intuitive mastery over wide-ranging sweep and subtlety of tone: feather in the changes or whip them suddenly and rhythmically into shape.
There are six Boomstar models, each with a different filter; the Boomstar SE80 you're looking at now has the multi-mode Yamaha CS-80 filter.
SE's patchable, discrete, through-hole, hand-matched transistor, American-made analog synthesizers are as rugged as they are flexible — inspiring instruments built to last a lifetime and then some, no matter which brilliant, hand-crafted filter model you choose.
