Make Noise 0-Coast Overview & Demo

This video, via Perfect Circuit Audio, captures an overview and demo of the new Make Noise 0-Coast synthesizer.

The video features Bana Haffar & Eric “Rodent” Cheslak introducing the 0-Coast, at the Perfect Circuit Audio store in Burbank, CA.


The Make Noise 0-Coast, (aka the no-coast), is a new synth that can be used as a standalone module or integrated into a Eurorack modular system. The goal for the O-Coast was to create an all-in-one synth that works well for both the so-called ‘East Coast’ and ‘West Coast’ synthesis approaches.

The 0-Coast can be used with no patch cables, with an internal routing system that provides a version of the classic ‘East Coast’ patch: VCO – Timbral control – VCA + Envelope. It also offers more than two dozen patch points, allowing the sections to be used modularly.

It has a classic oscillator, but attached are 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.

      1. ah, just watch a 26 minute video to get a link
        just another one of those marketing boo boo

        plus the longer you leave a syntopia webpage static, the more likely your web browser will crash

  1. Thank goodness for Perfect Circuit. I love having a shop in the LA area that likes having customers come in, let alone sets up events and demos.

    1. There is also Analogue Haven in Santa Monica:
      and NoiseBug in AH’s old location in Pomona: which have great showrooms.
      There’s also Big City Music in Studio City, but I have no idea if they have a showroom or are friendly to synth-nerding.
      There is a Vintage King Audio: in LA, open by appointment only.

      I’m actually wondering if there are any synth stores in the OC.

    1. It’s a synth shop. The Rhythm Wolf was just there on a table full of all kinds of synths (not being used in the presentation). So, yeah, idk why you’d be uninterested by a random synth sitting nearby, but okay.
