Studio Electronics SE-1
The SE-1 is an analog, monophonic synth-module designed to re-create that classic Moog sound perfect for Hip Hop, R&B and Dance music. The classic Moog sound comes from its distinctive 24 dB lowpass voltage controlled analog filter. There is also a 12 dB low-/band-pass filter which emulates the classic sounds of Oberheim synthesizers.
The SE-1 uses three discrete voltage controlled analog oscillators for genuine analog synth sounds. And that's three VCO's, just like the Minimoog. They offer the basic waveforms you would expect from any analog: triangle, sawtooth, reverse sawtooth, square, noise, and random. There are also 4 multi-stage ADSR envelope generators used to shape your sound, the filter and more. Also available are Ring Modulation and Glide/Auto-Glide effects.
With 24 knobs, 21 tactile switches, MIDI control over parameters and plenty of program storage memory (396 presets and 396 user patches), the SE-1 is a professional alternative to its classic forefathers. It is used by Fatboy Slim, Frontline Assembly, Dr. Dre, and Astral Projection.
The SE-1X is an improved version of the SE-1 with the following new features: A total of 198 new sounds - includes the "Lexington G" and "Allec Series" banks. Creatively expanded Modulation capabilities. Greatly enhanced MIDI specs. Tight new look - phatt new logo, sharper, more attractive front and back panel graphics and text. Flash-ROM Web-updateable Operating Software. Smoother tweaking and MIDI transmission of front panel pots (switches send info. as well). External Audio Input.
For the limited run of Novamusik.com special editions "Red Eye" and "Angel Dust", the triangle wave of oscillator 2 was replaced with a pure sine wave, among other improvements.
