CatSynth Pic: Dog barking at CAT

Well, that’s quite an interesting pairing: dog sticker barking at The CAT – specifically, an Octave CAT synthesizer.  Seen on matrixsynth.

This one recently came in to Thesis Audio for restoration.

“We took in an Octave CAT for restoration the other day that had this sticker added to the back. I like it!”

Anyone know what the source of the sticker?

I believe this is only the second time we have featured a dog in a synth in over twelve years.

We have long been interested in the OP-1, although we won’t have one ourselves.  Maybe it would make a great instrument for Sam Sam 😸

Sarper Duman returns to CatSynth with one of his beautiful serenades with his cats 😻. From his Facebook page.

If you want to wake up to every new day with a real and unconditional love, adopt an animal.. Even if they don’t see, even if they’re missing a leg, they have no handicap in loving and being loved.. 🖤🐈🎹

Her yeni güne gerçek, çıkarsız bir sevgiyle başlamak istiyorsanız, hayvan sahiplenin.. Görmeseler de, bir bacakları eksik de olsa, sevmeye, sevilmeye hiçbir engelleri yok.. 🖤🐈🎹

The moment where the tabby crawls onto the keyboard is priceless!

CatSynth Pic: Industrial Music Electronics fka The Harvestman Presentation at Modular8

Hertz Donut

Cat with the latest version of the Hertz Donut module from Industrial Music Electronics (formerly known as The Harvestman).  Seen on matrixsynth.

“Modular 8 presents Scott Jaeger, Saturday August 25, 1-5 PM! He will be showing off the brand new Hertz Donut Mk. III AND lecturing on Chiptune Synthesis.

Regarding the Hertz Donut MK3 demo 8/25 – @harvestman will also give a talk on chiptune history!

“I will lead off with a presentation about chip music ~30 minutes, then it gets into philosophy of square wave stuff, then probably seamlessly transitions into the HD3 demo.”

Sadly, this event is in the past, so we at CatSynth were not on hand.  Hopefully, we will make it back up to Portland again soon…
