0-Coast Inspired Synth (1-Toast)
  • image

    Well, since interest in the first version of this project (the 0-Toast) still seems to be a thing, I thought I should make a version that is both more CPU efficient and closer in sound to 0-Coast. It also reflects a lot of growth in my understanding in how to design things like looping function generators and oscillators.

    Included in the fun pack are the 1-Toast, uModular versions of the components, and a mini synth version of the 0-Coast's default patch (the one that you end up playing when you forget your patch cables).

    I wouldn't mind making some comparison videos, as there are naturally some differences in how it sounds, but I'm not quite sure how to set it up, so no promises.

    Please enjoy, and report any bugs you come across.

  • This is brilliant Robert. Thank you!
    I’ve had it on my mind for quite some time that it would be great to have a uModular version of the O-Toast building-blocks, and now you’ve done it. Also makes total sense to keep some of the bits out of the box. And a set of manual patches as well. What a party!
  • @Rudiger Happy to oblige! Looking forward to see what people come up with :)
  • So much YES!!! Thanks for this @RobertSyrett.
  • 0-Coast Patch of the Week #20: Rhythmic Animation with TEMPO In Division.

    For extra credit, run the output of the 1-Toast through a z-1 unit delay and back into the lin FM input of the oscillator for a soothing drone effect.

  • Ha! I had actually watched this video a couple times today and had thought about patching this one up using your 1-Toast module. The early nerd gets the slurm I guess!

  • Glorious.

    I have to say, Audulus is more addicting than binging on Everybody Loves Hypnotoad!
  • how can i connect a midi keyboard to this
  • @panthera86 I would patch it to the MIDI Keyboard node with a little clamping to work around a bug in audulus.

    I have attached the patch above for your convenience.

  • *thankyou* :D :D very much, i was really trying to find out how :D

    edit: what kind of bug??
  • Not sure I would really call it a bug. The keyboard node outputs a frequency in Hz. Like most current modules, the Toast module expects an input in “1 per octave” form. That is, 0 is typically A-440, 1 is an octave above, 2 is 2 octaves above, -1 is an octave below etc. The converter accepts a frequency in Hz and outputs the 1 per octave value. The glitch is caused because the keyboard node outputs 0 when no key is pressed. The converter can’t deal with zero Hertz and causes Audulus to error. The clamp expression keeps the value between 20 and 20000 Hz to prevent the error.
  • A quirk? Let's call it a quirk.
  • It's not a bug, its a feature!
  • thank you i'm really trying to understand more about voltages and stuff since iwanna buy modular hardware in 2018 after owning some analog synths
  • @panthera86 - nice! Check out this ES-8 + Audulus guide while you're at it to think about what kind of modular gear you might want that would work well with Audulus.
