Boomstar 8106 MKII
Boomstar is a return to the raw power and purity of non-programmable discrete analog, where STUDIO ELECTRONICS started in 1985 with the Midimoog. The snap and punch of hardware envelopes drive the Boomstar's brilliant, discrete voltage-controlled circuits—hard. This 8106 Boomstar version, based on the Roland Jupiter/Juno filter, packs a full-bodied punch and has... depth. The low-end shelving, typical in resonant heavy patches, is nicely compensated by beefy feedback and overdrive, producing patches worthy of the Roland heavyweights of yore. Devotees of the SH-101 might find this model hard to resist.
High-pass and 6dB filter options make the deal even more honeyed.
