Xandra with FolkTek, Moog and other modules

The beautiful Xandra – a Siamese oriental shorthair cat – sits proudly in front of a modular system featuring offerings from FolkTek, Moog, Malekko and more. Xandra fits purrfectly with the aesthetics of the FolkTek modules.

CatSynth Pic: Luna and Modular

We at CatSynth always love meeting other cats named Luna. This Luna once hid behind a 6U Eurorack modular case when she was a kitten. It is reported that she is too big for this space now.

My cat luna hiding behind the 6U case when we first got her. She’s a little too big these days for this

We invite intrepid readers to try and identify the modules – quite challenging from this angle.

Stay at home concert #30 (Ambient / Berlin School Session)

That is one patient cat! Just chilling in the corner for the entire concert.

I also quite like the combination of instruments: vintage Juno-60 and Oberheim Xpander synthesizers along with the newer Arturia MicroFreq, Sequential Rev2, Moog Sub37, and more.

By Martin Stürtzer on YouTube, via matrixsynth.

“It is time for another Ambient / Berlin School session! I prepared three long tracks with pads and sequences from the Oberheim Xpander, Waldorf Iridium, Roland Juno-60, Sequential Rev2, Moog Sub37, Arturia Microfreak and my modular system. All sounds are midi sequenced from Ableton. FX are coming from U-He Colour Copy, NI Raum. The Rev2 is connected to Strymon Timeline and Eventide H9. My Juno-60 is clocked from Ableton ‘CV Tools’ through an audio output of the RME 802. I am playing the Arpeggiator and hope to have a proper midi interface for it next time.”

Valentino with Elektron RYTM & Octatrack

This is not Big Merp. It’s our friend Valentino, who has found a nice napping spot between the Elektron RYTM and Octatrack and the computer (with an Orion interface). We also see a Red Panda Particule pedal.

Had to unplug the RYTM + Octatrack because that’s where he wants to sleep right now.

As the late great Serena Toxicat said, “A cat does what a cat does” 😸

Willow with Roland V Synth

The lovely Willow joins us again, this time showing of a Roland V Synth. From puxflux via Instagram.

You can see Willow’s previous appearance here.

The Roland V Synth was, and is, a powerful instrument that combined many of Roland’s synthesizer technologies in a programmable and playable package. Most intriguing were the formant synthesis and processing capabilities (at least from my perspective).
