CatSynth Pic: Bill on Quarantine (Vintage Synthesizer Museum)

Bill enjoys the quarantine life with an Arturia MicroFreak and sundry Strymon pedals. Via our friends at the Vintage Synthesizer Museum.

You can see our visit to the Vintage Synthesizer Museum earlier this year in this video.

This was from the beginning of February. Not so long ago in time, but a world away from where we are now.

CatSynth Pic: Fluff and Roland SH-101

Fluff loves his Roland SH-101. Here we see him ready to tweak the VCF on this classic synthesizer.

CatSynth Pic: Self-Oscillating

We at CatSynth have been enjoying this meme over the last half-year. But this may be my favorite instance to date πŸ˜ΉπŸŽΉπŸŽ›.

The first synth I had that could self-oscillate was the Evolver from Dave Smith Instruments (now Sequential). I enjoyed performing with the “fifth oscillator” as I called it. Since then I have found myself experimenting with such phenomena on many a module.

CatSynth Pic: Nina and Novation Bass Station

Nina lays claim to a Novation Bass Station synthesizer in this pic from ros_franck on Instagram.

CatSynth Video: Jazz Piano and Cat

Yes, some may debate whether a cat and piano constitute a “CatSynth pic”, but this is absolutely the content we need today.

CatSynth Pic: Merce and microKORG

Our friend Merce the Cat (@Merce_the_cat on Twitter) rests comfortably against a microKORG.

Wordless Wednesday with Big Merp

Merp is ready to share a glass of wine with his human friends.

With wine, cats, good music, and intellectual and artistic curiosity, we will get through this.

CatSynth Pic: 5U Modular Cat

The 5U modular system comes with its own singing cat module. We at CatSynth would love to get a hold of this. We also see a Twinpeaks filter (Epoch Modular / Rob Hordijk) in the upper rack.

CatSynth Pic: Brisket, Korg Polysix, and Social Distancing

In this moment of social distancing, Brisket is showing us how to do it right as he completely ignores the Korg Polysix next to him.

CatSynth Pic: Big Merp, MicroFreak, and Modular

Today’s CatSynth pic features our very own Big Merp! He likes to bed down on the synthesizer desk when I’m working on the studio, and on this occasion, he seemed particularly blissed out.

One of the few bright spots amidst all the pandemic craziness is that mandatory work-from-home affords me more time to spend with my cats and my music.
