Make Noise Releases the 0-CTRL Controller/Sequencer

Fans of Make Noise have something to celebrate today, as the popular modular synth brand unveiled its newest offering on YouTube this morning. The 0-CTRL is a small, super portable, tabletop controller/sequencer that follows up (and pairs nicely with) the brand's hit 0-Coast semi-modular synth.

As introduced in the release video, the 0-CTRL is a "patchable, clockable controller and step-sequencer for voltage-controlled synthesizer systems." The 0-CTRL follows the Eurorack protocol and features gate outputs and dynamic envelopes per note/step, which makes it ideal for use with expressive instruments.

Players can control direction, strength, pitch, time, and more via patching and knob-turning as you'd expect, but one of the particularly unique aspects of the 0-CTRL is its "Sequencer Interrupt" feature, which allows players to play live by hand either taking over for the sequencer or playing along with it as it's running.

Relatedly, the included row of Time knobs is another of the 0-CTRL's most stand-out features. "The Time row allows you to introduce the 'slop' of how people naturally play," said Make Noise's Tony Rolando in a prepared statement. "Sometimes that slop is the magic, and is what gets the groove going."

The 0-CTRL also comes in at $399 USD brand-new, making it a pretty reasonable buy from the looks of what it offers. Be sure to add the 0-CTRL to your Reverb feed by clicking the blue button above to be notified when the first listings start showing up on Reverb.
