RIP Mimi the Synth Cat

Mimi and Juno 60

We received some sad news today. Our dear friend and frequent guest on CatSynth Mimì passed away this weekend. She was 19. Mimì had the best synthesizer collection of any cat we knew; and more importantly, she loved a long full life and was very much loved.

Our thoughts and condolences go out to Eric Pochesci of polynominal.com for his loss. He has put together this wonderful tribute page for Mimì. You can also see her many appearances on CatSynth here.

RIP Mimì. You will be missed.

the 64 mania theme has been done on roland juno 60, abusing on trills and arpeggiators to emulate the typical commodore 64 sid. Hope you like it!

CatSynth video: Emu ultra proteus (ultraproteus) 100% sound demo!

From polynominaldotcom on YouTube, another video featuring Mimi!

This time Mimi is posing with an E-MU Ultraproteus. It’s quite similar to the Morpheus that I sometimes use. I haven’t use that synth lately, but probably should break it out again sometime soon.
