The Studio Electronics SE-3X Uber-Synth Like A MIDI Minimoog On Steroids

Studio Electronics has introduced the SE-3X, a three-voice Paraphonic synth, inspired by the classic Minimoog, but offering full MIDI control and four discrete, classic hardware filters.


The SE-3X synth is an evolution of one of  Studio Electronics’s first products, the SE-1(x). It was based largely on the Minimoog, but also incorporated features from other classic analogs, and added patch storage and extensive MIDI control.


The Studio Electronics SE-3X features four analog filters, letting you create sounds from a whole collection of vintage analog gear:


  • SE Classic 24dB Moog;
  • SE Classic 24dB ARP;
  • SE Classic Juno/Jupiter: 4 modes: 24dB, 12dB, Mix; and
  • SE Classic 12dB Oberheim: filter incorporates Low Pass & Band Pass modes.


New in the SE-3X:



  • Two fuzz modes: 70s & 90s. Front panel switchable.
  • RESONANT FILTER COLLECTION: 24 dB MINI, 24 dB ARP, 24dB, 6dB, “Mix Mode” JUNO/JUPITER. SEM remains the built-in filter. Front panel switchable.



  • Exponential glide routine from the OMEGA and the original linear glide.
  • OMEGA / SE-02 Envelope routines in addition to the original linear & magical quasi-exponential Envelopes.
  • Panel control for Oscillator Mix.
  • Panel control for Oscillator 2 & 3 Fine Tune.
  • LFO Gate from our BOOMSTAR / MIDIMINI V30
  • Spice and “poly” nice nice: Paraphonic Mode: for easy and electric 3X chords and colours.

The Studio Electronics SE-3X is available now for $2199.
