Make Noise Intros Two New Euro Modules, Contour & Dynamix, Based On 0-Coast

Make Noise has introduced two new Eurorack modules, derived from circuits of the 0-Coast synthesizer: Contour and Dynamix.

Contour is a 4 Stage function generator, or ADSR. It is designed to create control voltages to drive the Dynamix, modDemix and other fast VCAs, VCFs, and more.

The Contour takes inspiration from the original Loudness Contour circuit of the MiniMoog, which is perhaps the most well-known example of East Coast Synthesis. The simplified control set (where Decay adjust both the decay to Sustain and the Release) makes it quick and intuitive to set-up.

The Contour module adds full voltage control, a mirrored output, End of Onset and End of Contour Gate outputs.

DynaMix is a fast two-channel Low Pass Gate, dynamics manager and mixer.

The LEVEL parameter provides simultaneous voltage control over the Amplitude and Frequency content of audio signals, operating as a VCF/A.

The DYNMC parameter accepts audio signals or control voltages and converts them into a signal that may increase or decrease the LEVEL parameter thus allowing for side-chaining and ducking. The summing section is complete with an AUXiliary INput allowing for the chaining of multiple MIX units (modDemix, Optomix and RxMx modules) to create large, non-centralized mixes.

Pricing and Availability

The Contour is available for US $120 and the DynaMix is available for $170.

  1. Correct me if I’m wrong, but don’t Make Noise already have two modules that perform more or less the same functions as these two new offerings ?

    1. Vactrol-based LPGs sound audibly different from non-vactrol based LPGs. ADSR contours are obviously different from AD/ASR looping function generators. Now you have more of a choice.

  2. I’ve been wanting both of these pretty much since I got my 0-Coast. I imagined they’d be a bit smaller, but they have extra functionality instead, so no complaints here.

      1. He obviously means taking the designs from the 0-coast which both are based on, not that Make Noise invented the concept of an EG or Mixer.
