The 0-COAST is a single voice patchable synthesizer. Its name reflects the fact that it utilizes techniques from both the Moog and Buchla paradigms (aka “East Coast,” and “West Coast,” due to their locations), but is loyal to neither and thus implements “no coast synthesis.”
While the 0-COAST utilizes classic modular synthesis techniques, we designed it to operate with or without the use of patch cables. The necessary connections have been made from circuit to circuit so it operates as an expressive, musical MonoSynth. Using only the MIDI controller of your choice you could apply new timbres to your existing musical forms!
Using the included Patch Cables you could get more scientific, experimenting with new ways to wire up the circuits. You might even forgo MIDI altogether, disappearing into a cloud of analog FM induced Sidebands and harmonics scattered around a single fundamental drone that has nothing to do with any form of music you’ve ever known.

Great Sounddesingn tool! Super experimental-drums-percs-bass-alienshizzle- great fun!!
Westcoast Synthesis ! I love it! This little synth can sound organic to harsh and fat and got lots of nice overtones and sweetspots. Drums? Percussion? you name it it does it! Great for sound adventures especially with a nice reverb!

A great purchase
For anyone looking to dip a toe into modular synthesis, this is a very "playable" instrument with much sonic diversity once you deviate from the standard routing by use of the included patch cables. If you read reviews, you will see many mention the unique sound character of this synth, and that is my experience too. The use of "West coast synthesis" techniques clearly give this little gem a point of difference when compared to many subtractive synths that I have played in my time.
