The Studio Electronics Boomstar 5089 Synthesizer

Here’s an informal demo of the Studio Electronics Boomstar 5089, by Drew Neumann. This is the first Boomstar 5089 production unit.

The Boomstar series is a line of four new synths that share a common 2-oscillator analog synth architecture, but differ in their filter types:

  • 4075-classic Arp 2600
  • 5089-classic Moog 24db ladder
  • SEM-classic Oberheim 12db
  • 303-classic Roland TB.

The Studio Electronics Boomstar 5089 synth is priced at $899. See the SE site for details.

  1. demo looks like a game of Twister: left hand on cutoff, right hand on noise. !o!
    sounds nice- full and strong. would like to hear some non-sequenced sounds as well. bet it does some sweet leads.

  2. Any time I see someone selling a synth where basically you can buy four essentially the same except the filter versions for $899, I’m like “nope!”. Why isn’t the filter on a removable card or as a patch device so you can buy the unit with one filter for $899, and then buy the other filters at a reasonable price?

    Well-loved. Like or Dislike: Thumb up 9 Thumb down 1
