Make Noise 0-COAST

   1 review  -  2154 views

    The 0-COAST is a single voice patchable synthesizer. It’s name reflects the fact that it utilizes techniques from both the Moog and Buchla paradigms (aka “East Coast,” and “West Coast,” due to their locations), but is loyal to neither and thus implements “no coast synthesis.”

    While the 0-COAST utilizes classic modular synthesis techniques, we designed it to operate with or without the use of patch cables. The necessary connections have been made from circuit to circuit so it operates as an expressive, musical MonoSynth. Using only the MIDI controller of your choice you could apply new timbres to your existing musical forms!

    Using the included Patch Cables you can get more scientific, experimenting with new ways to wire up the circuits. You might even forgo MIDI altogether, disappearing into a cloud of analog FM-induced Sidebands and harmonics scattered around a single fundamental drone that has nothing to do with any form of music you’ve ever known.

Make Noise say they called it the "No-Coast" because it is supposedly neither East or West. The truth is, this is totally a West Coast synth. Exactly why I love it so much. That said, this little synth has a rich, fast sound that I just love. Lots of character with bright highs and thick low-end. The small case that is packed with controls to encourage creativity. Is somewhat complicated with normalized and patched routing. It actually has an extremely versatile interface that talks well in MIDI and CV with other gears.
