This fucking guy. If he had a debut album, what would it be called? #catsynth #pets #music #notmycat

The high contrast renders the synths unidentifiable to us, but maybe an intrepid reader is up to the challenge…

CatSynth Pic: Loki and Waldorf Streichfett

Loki poses with a Waldorf Streichfett synthesizer in a beautifully composed photo.  From Nicky Skolagava via the Facebook group Synthesizer Freaks.

The angle makes the Streichfett look large, but it’s a rather compact little box with an interesting story.  From the Waldorf website:

Streichfett combines the best of the previously extinct species of String Synthesizers of the 70s and early 80s. Its dual sound engine features a fully polyphonic strings section and an eight voice solo section, which is essential for recreating classic movie sounds from the 70s and 80s. The Ensemble Effect provides depth and movement to the String Section, while the Effects section adds adjustable Phaser and Reverb. Additionally, the Animate Effect can be used to modulate the strings registration, allowing spectacular sound morphs.

CatSynth Pic: Modal Electronics Modulus 002 Unboxing

When the little thug isn’t swearing at Sascha, he’s sitting on my synths…

The “little thug” has stumbled upon an interesting instrument that we at CatSynth don’t know much about, but learning more here.  Now called a Modal 002, it’s a rather massive beast.

CatSynth Pic: Syd and Roland Juno 60

A bit more on the Roland Juno 60, one of the classics:

Among the first in Roland’s amazing Juno family! Six analog voices of polyphony and patch memory storage!! The Juno-60 sounds great, however, like the Juno-6 it lacks MIDI control. The Juno-60 includes 56 patches of memory storage. The Juno-60 is still popular due in part to opinions that it sounds better (punchier) than the Juno-106. The Juno-6 and 60 are very rich sounding synthesizers and are great analog machines as long as you can withstand the absence of MIDI control.

CatSynth Pic: Miko in the Studio

Meet Miko, another of the cats that lives with our friend Charles Whiley in Arkansas.  She assists him in the studio as he produces his wild synth jams; and she is absolutely adorable!

You can see Whiley’s previous contributes to CatSynth via this link.

Identification of the synths left as an exercise to the reader.

CatSynth Pic: Angelique and Minimoog Model D

Beautiful Angelique joins us for a Midnight Monday CatSynth pic her Minimoog Model D.  From James Johnson via the Facebook group Synthesizer Freaks.

Angelique, forcing me to make a decision between the Moog and her.

We at CatSynth believe one can have both 😻

CatSynth Pic: Zoe, Modular, and Roland SH-01

Zoe sits atop a mixer next to a red Roland SH-01 and a large modular synthesizer.  The mixer seems to be her preferred spot.

 My cat hates photos being taken of him, since he decided to do everything he could to not let me finish the work I needed to do in the studio, I took a photo

CatSynth Pic: Pinto and Moog Little Phatty

Pinto the cat photobombs this portrait featuring our friend DC Astro and a white Moog Little Phatty.

Had an unexpected guest during my photo shoot!!

This is the best kind of unexpected guest 😸
