Boomstar 4075

Here is the first audio demo from Studio Electronics Boomstar series I have heard. There will be four different Boomstar models each with a different filter. The demo here of the 4075 is an ARP2600 filter. They have MIDI and CV. You can download a full resolution AIFF audio demo here: link. I’m sure these unit will sound great (other Studio Electronics synths are excellent) but I find this specific demo a little annoying. Hey SE anytime you want a really good demo please send me review unit ok? The Boomstars will be in stores in about one month for around $800.

“Put some decent headphones on and listen to huge low booms end and searingly crisp filter sweeps. I tried to take it though a full compliment of waveforms, xmod, rmod, oscillator sync, feedback looping, resonance squeals and overdrive. There is quite a bit more to come when the LFO gets in on the action. The chassis are getting screened this week. We’ll post more demos in the days to come with video included. And no, this is not an SE1X or ATCX! They sound quite good, but there is nothing like the clarity and impact of pure discrete analog with hardware envelopes.” – Greg St. Regis

  2. In the description he mentions that he’s adding a lot of feedback distortion to this demo. It’s the Minimoog trick of feeding the synth back into itself, but they added it to all of the models instead of just the Moog.

    I like the idea of these synths, and like the sound of all the other SE synths I’ve heard and owned. I wish you could sweep filter modes on the SEM model like the original SEM.

  3. Finally, a demo. Sounds A-list.

  4. Oliver,

    Thanks for the attention and compliments. Send us a “reel” – show us what you got – and you just might get a tweak at one of these boxes in the comfort and relative privacy of your own studio space.

    Best,
    Marc St. Regis
