The Studio Electronics Boomstar 4075 analog synthesizer module brings the sound of the classic ARP 2600 filter to a whole new level of sophistication. 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 to get a real kick out of the Boomstar 4075. This totally analog synth features a pair of super-flexible oscillators, tons of routing and modulation options, and a classic ARP 2600-style lowpass filter. And thanks to its extensive MIDI and CV capabilities, it's easy to add a Studio Electronics Boomstar 4075 to your keyboard rig.
Old-school analog goodness any synth nut can enjoy
Whether you're a seasoned synth tweaker or new to the game, you're going to love this synthesizer module! Each Studio Electronics Boomstar model features the same basic layout, with a comprehensive collection of pots and rotary switches set in its sturdy steel chassis. Starting with a pair of multi-waveform oscillators and ending with a warm and forgiving VCA, the Boomstar 4075's analog signal path is totally discrete, going so far as to offer hand-matched transistors in the filter and amplifier sections. As far as modulation and routing options go, you really can't knock the Boomstar 4075, which includes all of the standard LFO and envelope options you'd expect, plus cross modulation and ring modulation so you can really go nuts.
Explore the sweet sound of a classic ARP 2600-style lowpass filter
From David Bowie to Frank Zappa, every serious artist of in the '70s seemed to own an ARP 2600 mono synth. Originally designed around Moog's Ladder filter, the ARP 2600's 24dB lowpass VCF offered up a brassier sound, with a roundness to its resonance that many players though of as more organic sounding. Faithfully reproduced in the Studio Electronics Boomstar 4075 module, this ARP 2600-style lowpass filter will let you craft the vintage synth sounds you've always wanted to create. When when you put it to work with all of the rest of the Boomstar 4075's components, you'll be blown away by what you'll come up with.
Get creative with advanced CV and MIDI implementation
At Sweetwater, our Sales Engineers are used to helping musicians and engineers put together complete systems, which is one of the reasons we think the sheer routing and setup flexibility the Studio Electronics Boomstar 4075 has to offer is so cool. For starters, the Boomstar 4075 gives you an essential set of CV I/O, plus the external audio input that's let so many non-keyboardists get really creative with analog synth technology. But Studio Electronics did something different with the onboard MIDI circuitry, providing you with a MIDI learn function that makes the Boomstar 4075 almost as easy to integrate into your rig as a modern virtual instrument. And to top it off, you can even set note priority and allow overflow notes to pass along to additional Boomstar modules.
