CatSynth Pic: Arturia Keylab and BeatStep Pro

Cat sitting on a white keyboard, one of two in this studio. We see an Arturia Keylab 61 on the lower level, along with a BeatStep Pro (also from Arturia) and an M-Audio I/O. There are quite a few printouts for keyboard configurations and maps, which will surely come in handy for both human and feline 😸

Yamaha SK50D, CP10, Moog, More

This cat holds court in an impressive collection of vintage synthesizers and sits on a Yamaha SK50D. We also see a Yamaha CP10, a Moog synthesizer, an electric piano in the back, and more! From Sai Barker via Facebook

She is enjoying the vintage synths. Happy Sunday! Greetings from Mexico.

We at CatSynth are also enjoying all the vintage synths. If you can identify any of the others in this photo, please let us know in the comments.

CatSynth Video: Jump!

Amusing from Jezebel Delgado on Facebook. This cat is doing the purrfect pedal tone for the start to Van Halen’s infamous “Jump”

Speaking of Jump, please check out our review and demo of Arturia’s OB-Xa V.

Kat on a Korg.. 🙂

The PS-3300 is a rather rare synthesizer, but an impressive one. I did get to play the closely related PS-3100 early this year at the Vintage Synthesizer Museum. You can hear a bit in this video.

Drum KAT Cat

Meiko gets ready to lay down some rhythms on the Drum KAT. From our friend Charles Whiley.

You can see Meiko’s previous appearances here, and all of Charles’ contributions to CatSynth here.

The Drum KAT has long been a fixture in the world of MIDI percussion. I remember the rectangular pad with “Mickey Mouse ears”, as well as the KAT Mallet and the “MIDI Kiti” that converted external triggers to MIDI, something that would still be valuable today with the proliferation of CV, modular, and alternative sensors for making music.

Ringo plays Korg Triton and Waldorf Blofeld

Ringo plays a minimalist tone cloud on a Korg Triton Synthesizer. He also has a Waldorf Blofeld if he wants to add another sonic layer to his performance.

From our friend Damien Olson in New York. You can see a bit of a concert we did together in Brooklyn last year in this video.
