Thomas Bangalter of Daft Punk wrote to Studio Electronics to tell them how much he enjoyed the Omega 8: "here is a quick note to tell you my first impressions about the machine you made for me. i've just tried it deeply today for a few hours, and i must thank you very much as i've finally found in the omega 8 a synthesizer that can match the quality and musicality (even maybe surpass) and probably replace for now my only favorite synthesizers Yamaha Cs-60 & 80's (i had never heard something so warm and modern at the same time - i like the vintage idea, but when it's an opportunity to take what's good from the past and push it forward to the future). i was forced to get rid of some of my too-hard-to-maintain dinosaur synths anyway and i must confess i was delivered a long awaited steinway&sons model L from 1911 (some metal parts of it were molded in 1885 !) to my studio just today. i've put both 'instruments' next to each other, they match with style and elegance: glossy black was the right choice..."more
Fred Falke talks with Future Music about his approach to building a track- he does not use the omega 8 on the track but he does point out to it on the left of his computer screen (on the main rotary knob he has an awesome death records plaque from the 1974 movie 'Phantom of the Paradise') which has scenes that take place in an amazing 'modular synth's room' he has posted on instagram photos of this synth before as wellmore
In the video where Moonlight Matters is taking Future Music Magazine on a tour of his studio, right before the synth is shown in the video he says ". . . for example the Omega 8 by Studio Electronics is a really amazing synth. You can see it here, it's the big purple beast. It's a synth that's really versatile, it's probably the most versatile analog subtractive synth I have next to the Alesis Andromeda".more
