Studio Electronics Boomstar 5089 Desktop Synthesizer

Quick Overview

The revolutionary Boomstar 5089 from Studio Electronics

Monophonic desktop synthesizer with classic filter inspired by the classic Moog filter.
Studio Electronics Boomstar – 5089 Desktop Synthesizer

Back to the raw power and purity of non-programmable discrete analog, exactly where Studio Electronics started back in 1985. The snap and punch of hardware envelopes drive the Boomstar's brilliant voltage controlled circuits with unparalleled sonic integrity and versatility. Boomstar is the ultimate desktop analog synthesizer for those who remember and desire still, the electronic Analog sound that changed the world, and for seekers who have yet to discover that magic and delight.

Driven by rapid fire hardware envelope snap, and near Modular sound flexibility (at the flip of any of its 20 toggle switches), the Studio Electronics Boomstar desktop synth is a performer and a sound designer's waking dream. The Boomstar’s foundation consists of two Oscillators—stackable waveforms with Sub OSC, two Envelopes—invertible, loopable, with 'drone' and 'master' mode, is accented expressively by hardware XMod and exponential glide, extensive modulation routing, and a flexible software LFO: jacked for heavy lifting and fine-tuned experimentation—even go "off synth" with the external input and colour exotic oscillations.

The quick-turn shaft pots along the bottom for the hardware Ring Mod, Noise, Filter Feedback and VCO Levels make vital sonic change intimate, immediate, and indispensable; the adjacent Overdrive switch adds warmth and edge. Thirty one pots insure fluid, intuitive mastery over wide-ranging sweep and subtlety of tone: feather in the changes or whip them suddenly and rhythmically into shape.

Available in six models:

  • SE80—the legendary, creamy, multi-mode Yamaha CS-80,
  • 700—innovative MiniKORG,
  • 5089—classic Moog 24dB ladder,
  • 4075—powerfully resonant ARP 2600,
  • SEM—the original Oberheim 12dB,
  • 3003—the chirpy, acidic, bouncy Roland TB-303.

Each of the six units are the same, the options are for different filter circuits and configurations but the oscillators and envelopes are all unchanged.

S. E.'s patchable, discrete, through-hole, hand-matched transistor, American-made analog synthesizers are as rugged as they are flexible; inspiring instruments built to last a lifetime, and then some, no matter which brilliant, hand-crafted filter model you choose.
