The eight-voice, discrete circuit, multi-timbral, stereo, multi filtered, arpeggiating, DSP free Analog Dream Machine. Overflowing with elaborate MIDI control, dynamic signal processing, and expansive modulation, its sound creation and manipulation could very well exceed the boundaries of your imagination. Apparitional pads, foundational basses, revelatory leads, electrosonic drums, other-worldly sound effects and utterly massive synthetic soundscapes... The Studio Electronics Omega8 delivers true ANALOG stimulation. Exactly what you need to compete and remain a vital force in today's highly charged musical ecology.


  • Voices: eight.
  • Multitimbrality: eight part.
  • Parameters: patch, number of voices, midi channel, key range, fine tune (x8), output routing (x8), dynamics range (x8), dynamics fade (x8).
  • Audio outputs: one stereo per voice. One main stereo and main mono output.
  • Interface: 32 knobs (relative and jump modes), I rotary encoder, 35 tactile switches, 24 LEDS.

  • Two voltage controlled discrete analog oscillators and one sub wave of Oscillator 1

    -Waveforms: triangle, sawtooth and variable width square. All waveforms output simultaneously. Syncing of Osc 2 to Osc 1.

  • Two voltage controlled discrete analog filters

    -24db (classic Moog), 12 db (classic Oberheim). 12db filter has low pass, bandpass, high pass and band reject modes. Each voice has the capability of having four different filters available for use. Additional filters (up to 2 per voice) can be added as desired in any number. Filters do not operate in series or parallel. Current additional filters available: Roland 303, Arp 2600.

  • Three low frequency oscillators (LFO3 fixed to voice panning)

    -Waveforms: triangle, sawtooth, reverse sawtooth, square, noise, random. Up to three destinations and depths each for LFOs 1&2 with range, delay, key trigger, phase, mode (mono or poly), quantize, midi sync.

  • Three multiple stage envelope generators

    -Attack, decay, sustain and release with inverting and multiple triggering. Envelopes 1&2 have additional delay, decay2, and breakpoint parameters. Envelope 1 fixed to filter frequency. Envelope 2 fixed to amplifier level. Envelope 3 is assignable with up to three destinations and depths.

  • Arpeggiator

    -Parameters: tempo, direction, range, interval, midi sync.

  • Glide

    -Linear or exponential. Parameters: time, mode (auto, legato, glissando), autoglide interval, dynamics, destination.

  • Unison mode

    -One, two, four, six, or eight voices.

  • Additional Features

    -Oscillator 2 audio frequency modulation. Destinations: Osc 1 frequency, Osc 1 pulse width, filter frequency. White noise generator. Auto triggering external input processor on each voice. Parameters: input level, trigger level, mix level, window.

  • Modulation Destinations

    -LFOs1&2 and envelope 3: VCO 1&2 frequency, pulse width, and mix level, VCF frequency and resonance, noise level, Xmod amount, LFOs 1&2 rate and depth, VCA level, external mix level.

  • MIDI Specifications

    -In out and thru. Receives: program change, bank select, glide on/off, glide time, volume, SYSEX. Controllers: dynamics, modwheel, bender, pressure destination and amount (x2). Controller 1 assignment: dyn, mod, pressure, bend, tracking, continuous cont #2 (x2), controller 1 amount (x2). Controller 2 assignment - same as controller 1 (x2), controller 2 amount (x2). Dynamics, tracking, and bender have positive and negative modulation. Fixed continuous controller assignments for all key functions.

  • MIDI Controllers

    -Dynamics, modwheel, bender, pressure, tracking, breath controller: all LFO1&2 and envelope 3 destinations, including envelopes 1,2, and 3 attack, decay, sustain, release, amount.
