The Make Noise 0-Coast is a little semi-modular desktop Eurorack synthesizer with lots of power under the hood. Watch this in-depth course by synthesis expert Rishabh Rajan, and get ready to make some noise!
Whether you’re from the Moog (east-coast) or Buchla (west-coast) synthesis school of thought, you’ll find something to love in the 0-Coast (read: zero-coast) semi-modular synth. As its name implies, this semi-modular Eurorack desktop synth is inspired by both synth ideologies… it really combines the best of both worlds! In this course, synth expert Rishabh Rajan gives you an in-depth tour of all the 0-Coast features.
Rishabh starts by explaining everything about the synth’s architecture. You learn about its layout, signal flow and oscillators. Using the Moog- and Buchla-inspired controls and patchable sources & destinations, Rishabh shows how to get a wide palette of harmonically rich tones impossible to achieve on a regular subtractive synth. Next, you learn how to use the flexible (and fun!) on-board arpeggiator. After explaining legato, MIDI CV and MIDI Gate options, Rishabh dives deep into sound design with practical patching examples. The course concludes with examples of creating a “mult” and a complex modulated signal using the voltage processor.
So join sound design expert Rishabh Rajan, and prepare to get noisy with the Make Noise 0-Coast desktop synth!
Really enjoyed this course--very much helped to demystify the 0-Coast and I will no longer feel like I'm randomly twisting dials (fun as that could be). I look forward to exploring more of what this synth has to offer and incorporating it into my compositions. Thanks!
