The 0-Coast from Make Noise, (sometimes called the no-coast), is a new standalone modular synth, that can be integrated into a eurorack system, or left by itself as a desktop unit. It implements synthesis styles from both the "east" coast style, (in the tradition of western music), and the "west coast," (more abstract, less traditional, focus on experimentation), providing one of the most versatile full systems on the market. It has a classic oscillator, but attached is two waveshaping circuits, providing both subtractive-friendly waveshapes, as well as additive-friendly waveshapes. There are two envelopes, one reminiscent of the east coast style, being an A(D)SR-staged envelope, with the other being a loopable Rise-Fall envelope commonly used in Buchla and Serge systems. There is a tap-tempo clock, and random stepped output for modulation and synchronization. The 0-Coast can also function with no patch cables, with an internal routing system that provides the classic VCO - Timbral control - VCA + Envelope patch for easy plug and play capabilities.
0-Coast, Pico Modules, DRM1 Mixed by K-Mix and Sequenced by Beatstep Pro
This video shows the Keith McMillen K-Mix being used as a standalone mixer with drums from a Vermona DRM1 MKIII and synth sounds from the Make Noise 0-Coast and Erica Synths Pico Modules. Everything in the video is sequenced by the Arturia Beatstep Pro. The built in compressors, EQs and Reverb effects on the K-Mix were used as well.
