Studio Electronics Tonestar 8106 Filter Module
According to designer Tim Caswell, Studio Electronics Tonestar 8106 Filter 'is a 6dB/oct highpass filter followed by a recreation of the Roland IR3109 module, which is a 4-pole, 24dB/octave voltage-controlled lowpass filter with voltage-controlled resonance. Three dual OTAs with similar topology to the BA662 used in the Jupiter 8 (and the IR3109 module) were employed, one amp for the highpass filter, four (with added buffers) for the lowpass and one for the resonance. This filter takes a wide range of input signals and tracks control voltage extremely well. Although the topology is similar to the Studio Electronics Boomstar Modular System 4075 filter, the tonality, especially when overdriven, is distinct.'
Studio Electronics interface and feature maestro Greg St. Regis opted for the 6dB over the 12dB/18dB 'tap' for the second filter output due to its colorful and starkly contrasting character.
And yes, this input drive hits harder — much faster than the other Studio Electronics filters — so there is plenty of dirt to go around, but a familiar and comforting 'Roland-y' quality/tonality/flow is definitely home base.
