  • Sensei Analog
    Boomstar Modular - Modstar Sensei Hybrid

    SENSEI HYBRID resists analog purity for richly contrasting tones, modulation, and points of origin and purpose. Two stellar Eowave digital creations: the hypnotic and compelling CHARCOT CIRCLES: a 16 x 8 step sequencer, and STE. 16: a fiery, expansive, dual digital LFO, seem to have been waiting in the wings for just this moment to shine...

    MusicTechMag's Andy Jones says, " With classic filters, digital extravagance, options aplenty, a massive sound, all built for you and with looks to die for, this is the best synth you can choose to have someone else build for you. Portable, powerful, beautiful and sonically incredible. Sell your car, your kids and your soul for it...

  • Boomstar Modular 3003 Filter

    The 3003 filter is a voltage controlled, discrete analog 18 db/oct ladder low-pass filter, employing hand-matched transistors. Drop the FREQUENCY knob to 0 and things get pretty dull; swing it back up and those "Transistor Bass” highs come crashing through the gate. The 3003’s RESONANCE circuit at max will sing out more than the TB’s signature chirping in a fun, bubbly, if washy, poorer relation, Mini “clone-ish" way; use it tastefully, or throw moderation to the wind for overwhelming chirp force.

  • Boomstar Modular 4075 Filter

    The 4075 filter is a voltage controlled, discrete analog, 24/db/oct cascaded transconductance low-pass filter, employing hand-matched transistors. In its lowest FREQUENCY setting it shaves off higher frequency harmonics; its RESONANCE or “Q” circuit pushes those harmonics past the self-oscillation boiling point, projecting a thumpy, thrashing squeal, with explosive low to mid-range power and depth. The design is actually pulled from the four-pole ARP 4072 (better: more parts and trims), sans the 12kHz design flaw which hamstrung the original’s high end. More Information.

  • Boomstar Modular 5089 Filter

    The 5089 filter is a voltage controlled, discrete analog, 24 db/oct transistor ladder, low-pass filter, employing hand-matched transistors. Our ladder low-pass filter—a subtractive analog sound synthesis foundation—in its lowest FREQUENCY setting removes, or cuts off higher frequency harmonics; its RESONANCE or Q circuit emphasizes those harmonics to the point of “squealy,” giddy self-oscillation, tracking the keyboard in its FULL setting quite nicely if seeking an alternative sine wave.

  • Boomstar Modular AMP

    The amplifier (AMP) is a 2 stage Class A discrete design using 3 pairs of hand matched transistors. Envelope is usually applied to ST1/1. ST1/2 goes thru an attenuverter and can be used for envelope or modulation. ST2/1 goes to the 2nd stage, and is typically used for volume control. ST2/2 goes thru an attenuverter and is typically used for modulation. More Information.

  • Boomstar Modular Levels

    LEVELS is a versatile, low-noise six channel summing mixer/attenuator for audio and CV, which can be used rather effectively in a variety of ways: 6 in 1 out, or two separate mixers: 4 in 1 out, and 2 in 1 out, e. g., when only jacked-in to MIX 5/6 output all input channels pass through; utilizing the 1-4 OUT removes channels 1-4 from the MIX 5/6 output. Handy indeed. More Information.

  • Boomstar Modular Oscillation

    At the beginning of the Modstar tone parade, we cheer on another cagey Tim Caswell hybrid, which utilizes an exponential current source in a sympathetic spirit, to the through-hole, glory days circuits of ARP and Oberheim, followed in perfect sync by wave shaping circuits adapted from 2nd generation Minimoog Model D oscillator boards, and bringing up the rear, an incorporation of waveform mixing circuits pioneered by little old SE (that's us here at STUDIO ELECTRONICS)!

  • Boomstar Modular Sci Fi

    SCI FI is an ingeniously vintage-circuit-inspired Richard Nicol/Pittsburgh Modular original. As the reader might already know, ring modulation is a signal-processing electronic function: an implementation of amplitude modulation or frequency mixing, performed by multiplying two signals. This beloved other-worldly, warm, and at times clangorous coloring dates at least as far back to Bode's Melochord of 1947, technology which was ultimately licensed to Robert Moog in the early 1960s. Of course analog maestros Don Buchla, and Lord Tom Oberheim made their marks, circuitry culminating, to our eyes, in the brilliantly rhythmic, and wildly expressive Yamaha CS-80 Ringmod circuits and controls.

  • Boomstar Modular SE88
    Boomstar Modular SE88 Filter

    Our version of the boxy, Blade Runner-sweet and Boomstar-brash dual mode CS80 filter, initially married to the Omega Series Synths, and then tucked-in the 'Stars, now joins the Modstar Collective. We've twisted and turned the SE88 to unflatten the earth, so to speak; the original CS80 fed a HP filter into a LP filter, but with the SE88 your can select MODE 1's HP or BP to feed MODE 2's LP or BP, or patch it to reverse that pleasant path. The audio signal is completely controllable with input and output levels for each filter. Cherish and respect your filter's input gain stages, for a smooth yet often brassy sound—shed your mercy to strike hard for boiling, snarling bite, even to the blackout/cutout point; then and only then, uniquely blend mode settings for the filter family values you revere.

  • Boomstar Modular SEM Filter

    Our SEM is known as a 'Voltage Controlled State Variable Filter' because it provides simultaneous high pass, low pass, and band pass outputs, all with a 12 dB/oct slope. The notch is the inverse of the bandpass, achieved by summing the Low Pass and high pass outputs. This version is a combination of the original SEM filter and the newer design from the OBX, along with improvements by SE. More Information.

  • Boomstar Modular Shapers

    Shapers is a dual four stage envelope generator with independently adjustable ATTACK, DECAY, SUSTAIN, and RELEASE stages. Our Pittsbutgh Modular hybrid ADSR smooths the shape of the incoming gates and triggers to produce a more expressive instrument, just like its antecedent. The ADSR output can be used to control the amplitude of an oscillator, the cutoff frequency of a filter or any other function on a module that accepts control voltages. More Information.

  • Boomstar Modular Slim O
    Boomstar Modular Slimo

    The SLIM O shares our beefy OSCILLATION sound engine, so it is every bit as gorgeously stable—and of course tracks pitch remarkably well—but is sensibly slimmed down to 8hp essentials, with no tonal or quality sacrifice allowed; the Slimo is MIDIMINI big sonically, with a three position octave switch for smart and easy octaving...
