2016 was the year when people said, hey, I want to get in on some of that modular goodness, but … maybe I don’t want to buy a rack and spend thousands of dollars to do that. So it’s great to finally see desktop semi-modular becoming a thing – and an affordable thing at that. There’s the best note entrant, Moog’s excellent Mother 32. But I also like the much odder, but still affordable Make Noise 0-COAST (that’s a zero, not the letter o). It’s got a far more idiosyncratic front panel, but that shouldn’t put you off: it’s still ...

Mylarmelodies on YouTube has an absolutely perfect tour of the thing:

Now, maybe if you’re really good for the next 48 hours or so, Santa Claus is coming with one of these for you. Or… maybe this is what you’ll be planning to do with that year-end bonus. (I’m sorry, you know I’m an enabler for synth addiction.)

I have to give Make Noise one of our BEST OF 2016 for this creation. Watch for more of our favorite things of 2016 in the waning days of the year (and because I’m really amazing at missing deadlines, maybe sneaking into a bit of 2017, too).

And here’s the manufacturer on this thing:
