Apropos of yesterday’s Wordless Wednesday post, we have a geometrically proportioned CatSynth Pic today. With the balance of colors (red for the Behringer and Focusrite on the left vs the gray on the right) and the stacked keyboard, this could be right out of our architectural series.

Betty loves the CS20m
And she is certainly in good company! Long before Yamaha’s dominance in the mid-1980s with the DX series of FM synths, they created the CS series of analog subtractive synthesizers. Although similar in topology to other analog synthesizers of the era, they had their own unique sound and character and were prized by many artists.
Of course, every day is National Cat Day (or International Cat Day) here at CatSynth. But we are marking the occasion by letting Sam Sam and Big Merp share their own pics. Above, we see Sam Sam in one of her favorite spots in the studio, in front of the Yamaha TX802 and cassette deck. Sam Sam would also like to share her recent studio video.
And lest Big Merp is left out of the fun, here is a pic of him hanging out behind the main modular synth.
Our week of cats in the studio concludes with the return of Meiko. It looks like she is pretty intent on the knob positions and laptop controls, probably putting together a great mix with her human Charles Whiley.
