Studio Electronics – BOOMSTAR goes modular!

The Studio Electronics BOOMSTAR series impresses us with its fine analog sound. Although the various instruments (BOOMSTAR SEM, CE80, 3003, 4075 and 5089) don’t look spectacular, their sonic power is superb! But they are not cheap: each instrument costs approx. 1000 Euros.

SE is going a step further, and is now presenting Eurorack Modules / Eurorack Modular Systems based on the BOOMSTAR technology. This new modular series is called MODSTAR …


The following modules are available (or in planning status):

  • MIDI
  • 3003 VCF (TB303)
  • 4075 VCF (ARP)
  • 5089 VCF (Moog)
  • SE80 VCF (CS80)
  • SEM VCF (Oberheim SEM)
  • Multiples
  • Levels
  • SCI-FY
  • AMP
  • LFO

“Es genügt, einen Ton schön zu spielen” sagte der Komponist Arvo Pärt im Jahre 2005. Diese Aussage ist ebenso einfach wie ich auch exzellent: Es braucht kein Meer an Tönen, denn entscheidend ist der Klang. Dass so mancher Vintage-Synthesizer der 70er und 80er Jahre teils unerreicht hochwertige Klänge liefert, steht außer Frage. Doch tatsächlich leben wir “heute” in einer nahezu perfekten Zeit. Einerseits hat man – mehr oder weniger – noch Zugriff auf die Vintage Analogen, andererseits wird auch bei Neugeräten die wichtige Komponente des hochwertigen Klanges wieder zunehmend berücksichtigt. Doepfer, Cwejman,, MacBeth, Moog, GRP, Studio Electronics, COTK, John Bowen und andere Hersteller bauen hervorragende Synthesizer, die den “Klassikern” in nichts nachstehen. All diesen (alten wie neuen) “großartigen” Instrumenten ist Great Synthesizers gewidmet. _________________________________________________________ In 2005 composer Arvo Pärt said: “Playing one tone really well is enough”. In other words, it is sufficient to play one tone 'beautifully'. I agree with that. All musical efforts are focused on the sound itself. Although I studied classical music (piano and drums), it’s the electronic sound that inspires me. Synthesizers are the epitome of new sounds and exciting tonal spheres. Today, many companies produce high-quality - excellent! - synthesizers: Doepfer, Cwejman, MacBeth, Moog, GRP,, COTK, Studio Electronics, John Bowen and others. It's their products I'm really interested in ... apart from Vintage Synthesizers, which I have been collecting for 20 years. Subsequent to our former websites Bluesynths and Blogasys, Peter Mahr and I have now created GreatSynthesizers. We hope you like it.
