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

Boomstar

Well I think it’s safe to say we went from a drought of inexepensive real analog synths to completely saturated. Studio Electronics has jumped onto the table with the Boomstar. The new guy comes in 4 filter types: 4075-classic Arp 2600, 5089-classic Moog 24db ladder, SEM-classic Oberheim 12db, 303-classic Roland TB-303. See that first type? The 4075? That’s a flavor we haven’t seen in anything inexpensive/new/reliable yet. That’s the one to get! $799.

“This new blazing brainchild of STUDIO ELECTRONICS represents the design collective ethos of circuit and software “Saseong” Tim Caswell, tactile layout and lead feature specialist Greg St. Regis, graphic and sound consultant Marc St. Regis, art design wizard of vector truth, John Greczula, cool-headed concept leader Geoff Farr and our relentless and wise feature and functionality consultant and “Whip”, Drew Neumann.” – studioelectronics.com
