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).

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:
