Studio Electronics ATC1



Right!..... wanna analog monosynth?.... wanna replicate the Classic Moog(24db), Oberheim S.E.M.(12db low/ bandpass), ARP(2600 modular), and Roland TB-303(18db) filters ??..... Well, this could be your dream babe !!...... The SE team are from west coast US .... and these guys apparently were getting into laser-etching new moog boards and rackmounting them as well as rackmounting and midi'ing up lots of other old classics, such as the TR-808, Sequential Circuits Prophet V, Oberheim SEM, Moog MiniMoog etc etc....

So.... They decided to make their own !..... and the ATC-1 is the result.... (it aint a new product, but here it is)..... and it's 100% midi'd analog....with a twist........

The ATC-1, has a slot at the back into which you can plug any of the 4 available filter cartridges..... these are freely interchangable, but.... if you want access to all 4 at once without unplugging and grovelling around inside your rack, well you just add the rack-mount filter bank for a price of 149 squids and then all 4 are accessible at the touch of a few buttons........(i dunno if they are switchable during a performance via midi or not)




[ATC filter cart's]



The ATC-1 is a very powerful synth, and is heavily discounted right now, havibng previously been selling for somewhere around the 900-1000 mark....... I have only messed with it a little in a demo room, but it was very analog....fat, and screaming...... here's the spec's..... I'm trying to get some demo audio (oi-vey!!.. the story of my life !!)....... until then, add your comments please.....A well respected synth !!!

A very very good and verstile monosynth..... this with all the carts, and a sampler or h/d system could be all the analog you need!!!

WELL, within 3 hours or so of mailing S.E in the US,

they telephoned all the way to London

..... aint that nice !!....

I'd say the sign of a company that cares about

it's users and interested parties.....

anyway... a demo unit is promised.....

so as soon as the studio's set up again, i'll

add some audio.....



apparently, the other synth they do,

the SE-1 is THE synth of choice for R&B etc in the

states with a named user list as long as........

well as long as something very long.....

check out their site.....

.... have a nice day !

The only problem I can see is with the one dial.

I presume this means only one function can be changed at a time? So your screwed if you want to

modulate cutoff and resonance at the same time?

Or can you assign external controllers for other functions? Anyone out there know?

The ATC-1 is easily one of the best synths in my setup, and I have a nice amount of vintage analog. Anyone who owns one should really invest in all 4 filters and the selector, because they increase the functionality of the unit 100 times over. I'm looking forward to the ATC-6 later this year :)

I played the ATC-1 last night at the Guitar Center here in Frisco. I have a Micromoog, it's cool but it's way too tempermental (and only one oscillator) to use on stage (I play in a funk/jazz band a la Headhunters). So I was looking in to getting a virtual analog. I tried out the JP-8000 and the Nord Lead 2. But last night I tried the ATC1. Please, those others don't even come close. I don't really think digital can imitate analog sound very well. At least not yet. Yeah, those others have polyphony and are more flexible, but compared to the ATC1, they sound like the toy Casio keyboard my mother gave me for Christmas when I was ten years old. I haven't been able to try the Virus or Supernova yet, but I doubt they sound as fat as the ATC1. Yeah the one knob thing is kinda wack, but damn the thing sounds good. It's the real thing yall.

I must confess I am planning on getting the Roland VK7 organ, cause a B3's just too heavy to move around. It's sounds pretty good for digital. But analog rules baby, don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

great, great, great.

Very fat sounding synth, far more than a JP8000 or

any modelisation based synth.

Allmoast as cool as the SE-1. Allmoast the same sound. So if you dont want to spend 1100 on a SE-1 then get this one.

just got one off ebay but have been too busy to delve into it . I plan further exploration soon! What I did hear was way deeeep. I also have the se1 so I am familiar with SE. I need to look into a dedicated controller for optimal tweek-age. Any suggestions?
