Studio Electronics – Boomstar Modular STE. 16
The STE. 16, our second collab. with eowave designer Marc Sirguy, is a dual LFO, featuring a HI-freq mode and complex waveform mixing possibilities, which thinks nothing of producing thousands of different modulation and audio frequency shifts and wiggles. In fact, it doesn’t think at all—well maybe it does… since we here at SE suggested feature tweaks which were incorporated into the final layout.
With sixteen waveforms per LFO, setting the initial fragmentizing, gyrating, LoFi digital oscillating process (whenever you are ready), can be a most impulsive, and highly engrossing pursuit.
1 SHOT – LFO waveform plays once—needs to be triggered by the reset input.
HI/LO – In HI mode (6kHz at the top of its range) the LFO reaches the audio range—think LoFi digital oscillator; in LO mode, (starting at 5Hz) a very patient 3:40 long sweep is possible.
WAVE – Sets one of 16 different waveforms: triangle, sine, dome, ramp up, ramp down, stairchase, square, 1/2 square, impulse, four decreasing squares, random, random increasing, random pulse with, random triangles, pitched noise, and digital noise.
FM – Frequency modulation from LFO 2 to LFO 1; the Mix pot will set the amount of modulation.
AM – Amplitude modulation from LFO 2 to LFO 1; the Mix pot will set the amount of modulation.
MIX – Mix setting of LFO 1 and LFO 2.
MX (MIX) – Mix output of LFO 1 and 2.
CV – Affects the speed via an external voltage.
RESET – Resets the waveform.
OUT – Balanced LFO output: FM/M/AM three position switch sets the type or mix of modulation outputted.
Depth – 25mm with ribbon cable attached
Power Usage – 150mA, 35mA (+12 / -12)
