looks like lot of fun, offers interesting functions, hard not to like, i like the semimodular factor for these standalone things and this looks really nice function wise

For $499, they're definitely giving Moog a run for their money in the desktop modular market. I have a Shared System, but still like to get this. Seems like a lot of fun and it's different enough from their other stuff, it should attract a new customer base for them.

It's gorgeous. So tiny! A year and a half ago this would have definitely been my gateway drug to euro. But now I'm saving for a bigger case, not a semi-modular :hihi: I'm not sure there's enough ways to get modulation going into those inputs just from the unit itself. I'm guessing it would be way more interesting interfacing with Euro. Which, again, makes it a perfect first step for the Euro-curious.

Pretty neat. Would consider something like this if I wasn't already knee deep in trying to fill my euro case. Would be nice for a stripped down performance, love the harmonic stuff.

This, a small sequencer, and a couple of korg micro-dealies could make for a fun set!

:bananaguitar: I wonder if the slope genertator's CV tracks 1v/octave... if so this is sort of a complex oscillator in a box.

It wouldn't make sense if this was not eurorack mountable... it's meant to get people into euro modular, not away from it. I dreamt about this thing last night... had an argument with Tony (whom I don't know) about its features... weird :hihi:

So maybe it's not rack mountable.... haha!

"The idea was to make a synth that was mostly sweet spots, so that someone could get it and start making sound immediately"

Awesome. It looks true to that goal!

It's an unexpected move for sure. Not sure that it's necessarily meant to get people into modular though, I think the bigger goal is just to make making interesting music easy. I like the standalone desktop thing that's been happening. It's not really what I'm looking for right now but a good reminder that those patch cables aren't limited to the euro case! Also nice to be able to throw it in a backpack OR patch it next to the rig.

I think it's Euro-rackable. A few stills from the Sonic State video on hi-def:

It looks like it comes in a pretty awesome little skiff...would be great for a bunch of controller modules, like the Sound Machines LS1/LP1. I wonder if they'll sell those by themselves?

This could translate to instant gratification, limited range... but then it's patchable.

According to the makenoise reply to this tweet, it's not a module: https://twitter.com/baielala/status/689999866584551426

I'm not sticking up for the paris hilton thread (I think the fact that the original post was deleted by the author himself speaks volumes), but so far we have no confirmation that this 0-Coast is actually eurorack. And ignatius did indeed say
prove it and i'll move it
so I'm sure if it's discovered to be eurorack, it'll get moved back. Have some faith.

I know right, that Tempi module looks really cool.

funny since Tony calls it a module in the Sonic state video!

Going to try and resist this one & hoping they bring out some of those new circuits in separate modules. The Tempi on the other hand is just what I'm looking for I think .....

Module or not, I don't really care, it can sit outside the box. Looks really cool, and all this new circuitry makes me want it...499$ is "cheap", not even the price of a DPO. It is gonna be a competitor for the Mother 32 for sure but it has significant less patchable spots it looks like, would have been cool to have cv out for the enveloppes. And no filter, when M32 has THE filter, so I guess they'll work well together.

well this is unexpected ... & on my radar for sure. :party: I've got 2 x Mother 32s inbound ( come on UK, ffs...let's have em! ) & my trusty SEM Pro is ready.. sold off a lot of my other little semi-modular units but this looks like it could sit alongside the Moogs & SEM quite nicely for some different, perhaps more esoteric sound design options.... :hmm:

I agree the M32 and 0-Coast will pair well together, and they both seem like great entry level synths. It's tempting, but I just picked up a second Function and generally speaking the 0-Coast doesn't appear to offer anything I need.

Like another post said, if this had come out 2+ years ago I woulda jumped on it. But for now I'll just sit back and continue to try and convince myself that I don't need this...even though it does look very good for the price. Maybe its time to start selling off a few of the extra things I have laying around that barely get used.

I was more imaging it sitting next to a Minitaur with both being hooked up to a Beatstep Pro and SQ-1 (Beatstep for pitch, sq-1 for modulation). :mrgreen:

As someone who just got out of modular audio, I would pick this badboy up. Its sound structure is actually how I'd start most of my patches in the modular (tri/sine into a wave folder). The price is great, the patch options are great, the form factor is great. I love the Serge-yness of it. I'm having a hard time coming up with why I shouldn't pick one up...

I'm into it! Seems like a sweet little patch that would be great to take live or on travel.

Been doing something kinda similar lately with a benjolin, maths, uvca ii, uvcf, and synthrotek power stuck in an old mic box.

traditional synth voices aren't so interesting to me anymore, but the full modular setup needs to stay at home (for me). This seems like a good middle ground, and cheaper than any interesting combination of modules I can think of, half the price of the setup I mentioned above.

Yes it is a module. A synth module... as in it's not a keyboard synthesizer.

Eurorack module? No. Synth module? Yes.
