Studio Electronics Boomstar Modstar Sensei Hybrid
SENSEI HYBRID resists analog purity for richly contrasting tones, modulation, and points of origin and purpose. Two stellar Eowave digital creations: the hypnotic and compelling CHARCOT CIRCLES: a 16 x 8 step sequencer, and STE. 16: a fiery, expansive, dual digital LFO, seem to have been waiting in the wings for just this moment to shine, as you might have guessed from their center-staging. Space Hardware’s* GRAINY CLAMPIT: a granular and phase distortion additive oscillator, and QUADNIC: a 4 voice, 64 waveform digital oscillator, pair and push away from our pristine 8+ octave tracking discrete Class-A OSCILLATION module, in ways which must be experienced firsthand—a best of both worlds arrangement…
Two case options: MonoRocket SE-M6104 Black Carbon Case, and Kahnco Modular Case System, powered by 4MS Row Power 30.

Arp-flavored Discrete, voltage controlled, 24/db/oct cascaded transconductance low-pass filter—six pairs of hand-matched transistors—Really a 4-pole ARP 4072 (better: more parts and trims).
Mini-flavored voltage controlled, discrete analog, 24 db/oct transistor ladder, low-pass filter (hand-matched transistors).
2 stage Class A discrete design, using 3 pairs of hand matched transistors; DRIVE—’70s era distortion and Drone control.
• CHARCOT CIRCLES
16 x 8 step sequencer, that can be utilized as an 8 x 16 step track preset (8 CVs & gates), 4 x 32 (4 CVs & gates), 2 x 64 (2 CVs & gates), and 1 x 128 step track preset (1 CV, 1 gate). CV and gate expansion via our BBOX (Breakout Box).
• GRAINY CLAMPIT
Granular and phase distortion additive digital oscillator.
Versatile, low-noise six channel summing mixer/attenuator for audio and CV—pots are wired with logarithmic volume curves.
Potent all analog dual LFO module; two independent low frequency oscillator circuits provide a variety of modulation options.
• MIDI 3
Third generation extremely full-featured MIDI to CV converter, optimized and calibrated by Studio Electronics exclusively for Modstar Systems.
Passive utility module with two independent sections of four linked jacks.
Class-A, discrete, DC coupled, output buffered, exponential current source, vintage-designed analog oscillator.
Dual independent output module featuring a stereo 1/4″ headphone amplifier output and dual mono 1/4″, optimized by Studio Electronics exclusively for Modstar Systems.
Four voice digital oscillator—each with a selection of 64 waveforms, 7 different processing modes including phase distortion and wave sequencing, and a dedicated volt per octave input.
• SCI FI
Ring Mod, White and Pink Noise, Sample and Hold—Classic Synth Toolbox, with LFO and slewing control of S&H.
CS-80 inspired dual resonant powerhouse with hi pass/band reject, low pass/band pass filter modes, and “Pendulum Chaos Generation”: (x2): a damping/stabilizing override feature for highly unpredictable overloads—input driven “blackout” (perfectly harmless Opamp smashing for smashing good fun).
Obi-flavored, 12 Db voltage controlled state variable filter and “Pendulum Chaos Generator” (x2)”: a damping/stabilizing override feature for highly unpredictable overloads—input driven “blackout”. Angry & agressive when push comes to shove.
Dual four stage envelope generator with independently adjustable attack, decay, sustain, and release stages. Short and long range settings deliver smooth, detailed, and complex expression.
• STE. 16
Dual digital LFO, featuring a hI-freq mode, complex waveform mixing possibilities and expressive patching possibilities.
Switchable dual attenuator, 3 output lag generator for CV and audio.
Space conscious, unity gain, 4 in/1 out, high quality audio and CV mixer and “multer”.
• ROUTER (R)
Dual bi-directional (despite what the nomenclature states) audio / CV router.
Dual high quality VCA for audio or CV level control—perfect for creating a CV modulation chain.
