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.

CatSynth Pics: Gritty Kitty

Gritty Kitty is busy working on a new composition in Ableton Live! She also has an Ableton Push controller to aid her work.

CatSynth Video: Lilly, Behringer and Novation

Lilly poses proudly with a Novation controller and Behringer Crave and TD-3 synthesizers. And she gets cuddles. What more could one want?

CatSynth Pic: Nina and Yamaha CS1x

Adorable Nina sits atop a Yamaha CS1x synthesizer. From ros_franck via Instagram.

The CS1x was a popular synthesizer in the 1990s. Although it carries the “CS” prefix, it’s not really related to the legendary CS line of the 1970s, but a sample-based instrument of its own design. The newer Yamaha Reface CS is a closer emulation of the original CS line.

CatSynth Pic: Meiko in the Studio

Meiko returns today, posing adorably among the synths and cables of Charles Whiley’s studio in Arkansas.

it seems we have a growing ensemble cast of cats that appear regularly on these pages. To see more of Meiko, visit her tag.
