Wave Distribution has inked an exclusive international distribution arrangement with Studio Electronics for the latter's entire line of rack-mountable signal processing equipment and effects pedals.

Known for its Omega Series ATC- X and SE-1X rack-mountable Analog Synthesizers, Studio Electronics has recently introduced its first pro audio product, the C2s 1176 Type Stereo Compressor Limiter. The single rack space C2s features all-discrete Class A circuit design, transformer-coupled balanced inputs (Reichenbach) and outputs (Sowter), Neve 1272-type line driver output, dual mono/stereo linkable, LED PPM meters for output and gain reduction display, relay hardware bypass, TRS and XLR connections, gold contacts, and premium quality potentiometers. The Studio Electronics Caswell Audio Series also features metallic pearl paint finish, cast aluminum knobs and a steel chassis.

Two other new products the P2, a dual Neve-type mic preamp and the E2, a dual Neve-type parametric equalizer, are scheduled for release at the 2003 AES Expo in New York City.

On June 15th, Studio Electronics also introduced a full line of effects pedals. Called MODMAX, this series includes an envelope following filter, a phase shifter, and ring modulator. There are two pedals reminiscent of ?Hendrix unique distortion pedals, the Wolf Tone HELIUM and CHAOS. And there is the ?PRESSER a single-channel stomp box version of the C2s for guitar and bass.

According to founding partner of Studio Electronics, Tim Caswell, ?I built my first effect pedal in 1967 and my first synth in 1973. In the 1980s, I specialized in modifications of all types of signal processing gear. When it finally came time to get the gear I really wanted for my studio, I came to the conclusion that sound quality peaked in the 60s and 70s. Therefore, it made more sense for me to build my own gear. I dont build anything for our customers that I would not be proud to have in my own studio.

Greg St. Regis, founding partner of Studio Electronics, says, ?Were very excited about the future possibilities with Wave Distribution now handling our sales and marketing. Thanks to Wave Distribution we can concentrate on what we do best, which is creating great products for musicians and recording professionals worldwide.

Founded in 1988 by Caswell and St. Regis, Studio Electronics began with a rack mounted and "midified" MiniMoog, called the ?MIDIMINI. Next it introduced rack conversions of classic analog synthesizers, including the Oberheim SEM, Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, and Oberheim OB-8. Then in 1993, Studio Electronics released the SE-1, a programmable monophonic analog synthesizer patterned off of the Minimoog. Following the SE-1 was the ATC-1, and in 2000 the Omega 8 polyphonic analog synthesizer.
