CatSynth Pic: Eli and Roland TR 707

Eli returns, with a Roland TR-707 rhythm composer.  Submitted by Elias Laughton via our Facebook page.

A bit about the TR-707 from Vintage Synth Explorer:

A very underrated drum machine! It resembles the popular TR-909, and better yet, its hi-hat, cymbals, and clap sound almost identical to the TR-909! The TR-707 is a great source for cheap 909 samples. It has some other cool features too such as its Matrix display which clearly maps out your pattern for you in an easy to read display panel. It also features both MIDI in/out and DIN sync control – the best of both worlds. Why this unit even has individual outputs for each of its drum tones!

Those individual outputs might come in handy when using together with a modern modular synthesizer setup.

You can see Eli’s previous appearance here.

Black Cat and Roland TR-808

Another from our friends at Eevo Lute Music & Technology, this time featuring a black cat and a classic Roland TR-808. This was post for last week’s “808 Day”. My favorite comment: ” I only have full sized analog cats!” 😸 🎹

“MY gear !”

We are certainly not going to challenging this cat’s assertion.

We have another one featuring Dennis Matana’s cat Miep, who “loves synths and drumcomputers <3." Identification of the drum machine left as an exercise to the reader.

Pilar is ready to make some beats. #catsynth #volcabeats #synth #drummachine #korg

We have a Korg Volca Beats at CatSynth HQ and are quite fond of it, as it plays nice with both our modular/CV and MIDI gear as well as sounding like classic disco and house 😺
