Studio Electronics Boomstar SE80 Analog Synthesizer

the legendary multi-mode Yamaha® CS-80, 700 - innovative MiniKORG®
MFR# Boomstar SE80

Product Description

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® SE80 Desktop synth is a performer and sound designer's waking dream. The Boomstar foundation: two Oscillators—stackable waveforms with Sub OSC, two Envelopes—invertible, loopable, with drone and master modes, is accented expressively by hardware XMod and exponential glide, extensive modulation routing.

A flexible software LFO: jacked for heavy lifting and fine-tuned experimentation—even go "off synth" with the external input and color exotic oscillations.nThe synth is capable of many sounds, from mighty leads to thick basses, crazy FM sounds to cutting sync sounds.

Get the sweet and penetrating sound of the classic Yamaha CS-80 lowpass filter with the Studio Electronics Boomstar SE80 analog synthesizer module. If you've always wanted to get your hands on a classic analog synth, but could never justify either the expense or the potential frustration of making that happen, then you're going love the vibe and style of the Boomstar SE80. This totally analog synth features a pair of super-flexible oscillators, tons of routing and modulation options, and a classic CS-80-style lowpass filter. And thanks to its extensive MIDI and CV capabilities, it's easy to add a Studio Electronics Boomstar SE80 to your keyboard rig.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
