Last week, Studio Electronics introduced four Boomstar Modular System modules – Eurorack modules, created in partnership with Pittsburgh Modular, based on the Boomstar all-in-one synthesizer designs.
Now they have introduced the complete Boomstar Modular System – 14 modules that they say ‘dramatically opens up the root level programming and sound sculpting of that lush and potent, and already flexible Boomstar sound’.
Audio Damage has introduced the Mad Hatter Digital Noise Source for Eurorack modular synthesizers.
- Digital shift register noise plus 6 square wave oscillators for easy x0x-style cymbal synthesis.
- COLOR knob controls shift register noise clock and oscillator stack pitch.

- CV control of all parameters.
- 8HP panel size.
- Skiff-friendly 20mm depth.
