CatSynth Pic: Casio in Bedroom Studio (Korg, iPad Pro)

Casio the tabby cat finds a comfy spot in this cozy bedroom studio. By Kris Nicholson via Facebook.

This little bedside studio is designed for me not to get out of bed and it’s not just a little music studio but also I can create my computer animations using Poser.

I’m using a Korg microSTATION Music Workstation and iPad Pro loaded with music apps and synthesizer apps and also you can see my cat her name is Casio.

CatSynth Video: Cat Sound Bath Research #3

Beautiful and hypnotic “sound path” performance from Kamal Sabran. The kitten seems very relaxed and content listening to it, as do I.

We see an Arturia Microbrute, Kaoss pad, and a wide variety of items including a classic reel-to-reel tape recorder, circuit toys, analog oscilloscope, and more. You can see a previous post from Kamal Sabran here.

CatSynth Pic: Coco and TR-09

Coco gets ready to program her Roland TR-09 drum machine. Submitted by Daniel Warner via our Facebook page.

The TR-09 is a recreation of the Roland TR-909 as part of the Boutique series. It has the original controls and layout of the “909”, but in the Boutique form factor; plus some modern additions like USB.

You can see Coco’s previous appearance on CatSynth here.

CatSynth Pic: Roland JD-Xi

Beautiful white cat with Roland JD-Xi synthesizer. Submitted by André Luiz via our Facebook page.

The JD-Xi is a small affordable synth that includes analog modeling, PCM-based sounds, and a vocoder. It seems in some ways similar to a couple of the Boutique line, though its interface is closer to that of the AIRA line. We at CatSynth are particularly curious about the vocoder features…

CatSynth Pic: I didn’t say stop

A little fun this morning. From Michael Butler via Facebook.

Cats make great listening companions in the studio. Sam Sam can often be found lounging on the beanbag chair (as Luna did before her) – she just seems enjoy being there and listening, even to all the “weird” music that I make.

As the kids say, “That’s it. That’s the tweet.”

CatSynth Pic: Phantom and Yamaha DX21

Phantom performs on a Yamaha DX21 synthesizer. From Andreas Gregor via Facebook.

This was Phantom. He had an ear for synthesizers. I recorded him on my DX21 one day. I think he might be the only cat that released a track on iTunes and Amazon. Lol.

The track Naptime Electronique is available on Amazon and Apple Music.
