Make Noise 0-Coast is an innovative analog semi-modular desktop synthesizer that navigates back and forth between East and West Coast synthesis.
If you can't decide between the green beauty of the East Coast and the exciting expanses of the West Coast in the USA, you should...OK, travel guide closed. In fact, this is more about sonic landscapes that straddle the East Coast (i.e. Moog) and the West Coast (Buchla).
The Make Noise 0-Coast is composed of the two approaches that have left a lasting mark on synthesizer history and continue to do so to this day. In the East-Coast approach the combination of oscillators, are shaped by means of filter, mixer and VCA in the sound and the envelopes and LFOs in their course. The West-Coast approach seeks to shape the sound more by shaping the various oscillation forms of the oscillators. Here, mainly harmonic-free or -poor waveforms such as triangle or sine are used, which are then changed in their sound behavior by frequency modulation (FM) or waveshaping or -folding. In addition, instead of VCAs, so-called lowpass gates are used, which guarantee particularly natural sound characteristics, as well as function generators. These are relatively simple AD envelopes (Rise & Fall), which can be used for complex sound bending due to their CV controllability.
Like many Make Noise products, 0-Coast has that certain "something" and its operation is anything but steep coast. It can be used either with or without a patch cable for sound research and is an extremely diverse monosynth that can be used both with and without MIDI controllers for exciting sound experiments. Of course, the 0-Coast can also play a supporting role in your Eurorack system. Its heart is a triangle core VCO flanked by two different waveshaping circuits (Overtone & Multiply). In addition, a west-coast-influenced envelope (Slope with Rise/Fall) is on board, as is a four-stage east-coast variant (Contour). This combines with the Dynamics circuit (transistor-based lowpass gate) to form a powerful sound shaper that navigates back and forth between the two coasts.
All modules of the 0-Coast are CV controllable, 13 modulation sources can be assigned to a total of 14 destinations. 2 channels can be converted from MIDI to CV or MIDI to gate, and the coast child can also be synchronized via MIDI clock. The internal arpeggiator with two function modes can also be exposed via MIDI controller. An external audio input also allows you to mix signals of your choice with the innovative sound generation of the 0-Coast. Add the Make Noise 0-CTRL sequencer and the even more alchemically inclined Strega, both of which have a similar form factor, and the whole thing can be expanded into a sonic boundary-busting experimentation platform.

Already interested in electronics at the early age of 12, Tony Rolando learned everything about circuits and musical instrument design by himself. He worked for Moog Music for a while and some sabbatical years, he founded Make Noise in 2008 in Asheville, North Carolina. By now, his reinterpretation of the Serge DUSG, Maths, is probably the most ubiquitous module in the eurorack universe ever. Make Noise continues to surprise with new and inspiring modules, including collaborations with Tom Erbe of Soundhack.
