Description

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 could 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. 2 Channels of MIDI to CV and MIDI to Gate Dual mode MIDI Controlled Arpeggiator Sync to MIDI Clock Compatible w/ Eurorack Modular Synthesizer Signals Patchable w/ 13 Sources and 14 Destinations Triangle Core Analog VCO Uncommon Timbral Animation using OVERTONE & MULTIPLY Unique Transistor Based Low Pass Gate DYNAMICS Voltage Control of all circuits External Audio Input for combining w/ outside sounds Headphone and Line Level Amplifier Small Rugged Steel Enclosure

Make Noise 0-Coast

...a lot closer but it was also well over $1k and didn't have any of the clock stuff inside the 0-Coast. You'd have to add a wogglebug which probably pushes that up to nearly $2k. I do get some nice bongo-y sounds out of the STO and Optomix modulating the shape setting. I'm...

For those who don't own any modular synths, why not?

...to feed the beast and I'm not certain I'm ready for that yet. I believe I could live with an 0-coast or a few neat Mutable modules that basically give me a higher-quality Shruthi in a Waldorf KB37 or something, but it'd have to be an instrument to me - and as a beginner...

Warm complex modular poly synth, which?

After looking around I've realized that I want one beautiful monster for stunning rich big pads. This I want to be poly and I'd probably use it as a drone which I can constantly change so mod is important (I don't like loops). Secondly I would want one or two synths that I can play with...
