Quote from: JLIAT on February 22, 2020, 01:10:28 PMJust to say I have a 0-Coast but would NOT recommend it as a first synth. I've noticed a lot come up on ebay and suspect the reason is the learning curve. It's not designed around the standard VCO, VCF, VCA Ring Mod of typical analogue synths... with only one VCO, and you will need a midi keyboard / controller... yet i'm keeping it as it fits well with Euro rack, the Midi to CV and other elements... and is a good intro to other Make Noise Eurorack modules... Whilst on Make Noise, the Morphogene is well worth looking at if you want to explore digitally 'tape loops'... and granular synthesis.... much longer samples than the phonogene and the Morph is stereo.. for sound manipulation, mangling its extreme. But again expensive, especially if you have to buy a skiff. Add to that the price of a 0-Coast maybe the MICROFREAK? If you want to wait and see the price, the Behringer 2600?

It's an interesting module although I don't see how useful it'd be on its own considering it's quite uncontrollable. I'm not much of a fan of its overall distortion, which is a bit too glitchy to my ears, but it shines when fed multiple things in its various inputs, so I'd say that for the price of the desktop unit, you might be better off buying something else. Shard was meant to work with the Wreckage module in the first place so you'd be better off considering a desktop Shard as some kind of FX/sound mangling unit, in my humble opinion.

You can, however, feel uncomfortable by its workflow, the patch panel, etc. It took me some better understanding of modular synthesis through other synths to appreciate fully what the MS20 Mini can do.Also, I never noticed any feedback issue with mine? Do they happen when you patch it or even without patches?
