    The Studio Electronics 5089 is an all-analogue 12hp EuroRack module offering the smooth, creamy tone of a Moog style ladder filter.

    Main Features

    • All analogue Eurorack filter module
    • Get the full, creamy sound of the classic Moog style ladder filter
    • 24 dB/octave lowpass ladder filter
    • 7 patch points


    The 5089 filter is a voltage controlled, discrete analogue, 24 db/oct transistor ladder, low-pass filter, employing hand-matched transistors. The ladder low-pass filter—a subtractive analogue sound synthesis foundation—in its lowest FREQUENCY setting removes, or cuts off higher frequency harmonics: its RESONANCE or Q circuit emphasises those harmonics to the point of 'squealy', giddy self-oscillation, tracking the keyboard in its FULL setting quite nicely if seeking an alternative sine wave.

    The 5089 has the roundest, slickest tone of all the Boomstar's filters. Go easy on it, and round, creamy buttery flavours wrap the oscillators in earthy warmth: smash it and a meaty, satisfying overdrive—a maximum harvest of vintage 1960s and 1970s organic sounding, second order harmonic distortion fill the plate. Every setting is balanced and bountiful. Looking for traditional R 'n' B baselines and leads? Focus here on the rich saturation of this benchmark filter and its symmetrical cascades of generation-stretching timbres.
    Potentiometer Potential
    Three attenuverter and four attenuation pots control the FREQUENCY, RESONANCE, FREQ CV 1, RESO CV, FREQ CV 2, INPUT and OUTPUT, delivering smooth, detailed, and complex expression.
    Switch it Up
    Classic Minimoog FULL and HALF strength filter frequency keyboard/voltage tracking for rounder low end with brilliant highs.
    Patch it Up
    Seven patch points: 1 V/O, FREQ CV 1, FREQ CV 2, RESO CV, INPUT and 2x OUTPUT direct the deepest manipulation.
