TONESTAR 2600

 

Studio Electronics

Fully Modular ARP®2600-Styled Premium Synth Voice

TONESTAR is an ARP® 2600-styled synth voice, 31 years in the shaping, pre-patched like Pearlman's prized beast, and fully "outs to outs" modular. Connect CV / gate and twist 'n' switch, or pull its tones and voltages apart one 3.5mm cord at a time. 26 knobs, 7 switches, and 21 jacks make for complex and satisfying signal flow, color and collisions. If it gets reedy, route the triangle wave 'round the VCF.

Optional DIY Adjustments
The tweaking and fine tuning process of a new SE offering can be seemingly endless. Many of the decisions we make are akin to choosing between chocolate, or chocolate with almonds (Fair Trade Organic of course), both tasty and worthy of consumption. At a certain point you have to step away and let your little baby go—but sometimes after flipping back and forth on preferences, we implement a few minor changes after the official production release. The following tweaks fall into the subjective "with or without nuts" category:

Units #2-15 / Noise - The noise on the Tonestar leans to the Pink side, a little dark and moody. Some may like it, some may want the more bright and sizzled white variety. One resistor or capacitor change will shift it to the white spectrum.

Units #2-22 / Feedback - The Feedback loop is big, bold and deep on the low end; maybe a bit too much so. One resistor change will reign it in, but still allow enough chaotic madness at maximum level.
