Description

The SE-1 is a rackmount, monophonic synthesiser based on the original Minimoog. Designed & built in the USA by Studio Electronics, it’s a digitally-controlled analogue synth with full Midi implementation and user memories for patch saving

If you know your way round a Minimoog Model D you’ll have no problem getting to grips with the SE-1. With a similar panel layout to the Minimoog, it delivers most of the features of the original plus a few new ones. Studio Electronics say:

“The SE –1 is inspired by the classic circuitry of the Minimoog Filter, Oscillators, and VCA. We’ve also incorporated “our take” on the “boxy”, buzzy, and bright 12-dB filter of the Oberheim S.E.M., for greater tonal expression. Four envelopes, three LFOs, full MIDI implementation, and a host of original extra features await you. And, of course, the legendary, the immortal, and the ubiquitous: Bank A, patch #04…”

There are plenty of clone Minimoogs on the market now but the SE-1 hits the spot in a number of ways: it’s rackmount and has a spacious front panel so knobs are easy to get at. It has Midi, and it has user memories so patches can be edited and stored for easy recall. The Oberheim-style filter adds flexibility and isn’ t found on other clones

This SE-1 is in mint condition – see the photos – and is tested & working 100%

“Few all-analog synthesizers can deliver anything near the subtractive sound-shaping power of the Studio Electronics SE-1 synth module”

“I owned an SE-1 for a while and sold it to pay for other gear, but now i miss it and would like to get another one. There is something very unique about the SE-1 that is hard to explain. Maybe its just pure quality through and through. They are very had to find and are not cheap, but really worthwhile in my opinion”

“Great sounds with not a lot of tweaking, pretty fat and punchy IMO. FM sounds great on it”

“At its heart the SE-1 is very much a rackmounted, Mini Moog with full MIDI implementation, but there are a few useful additions to the Moog package that make this synth way more versatile. It features a ring mod, dedicated LFOs (so you don’t have to sacrifice an oscillator to LFO duty like on a real model D) and a multimode filter”

“This is an amazing synth!! Really has presence in a mix which not many synth nowadays can do (and i’ve owned many of them) One of the truly great analogue synths of our time, (apart form moog) but then this is a moog and morebesides. Bob Moog was present when these were made to make sure it turned out the way he wanted. If you’ve ever used one you’ll know why they are so sought after. I say get one now before they become rare like the forefathers before them!!”
