Shiro and Yamaha SK50D

We close out a week of white cats with Shiro playing a tune on a Yamaha SK50D. From hdgenis in Mexico City via Instagram.

The SK50D is a two-manual beast of an instrument, an ensemble synthesizer with a drawbar organ, strings, a mono bass synth, and more. It was released in 1980 and is quite rare. Shiro is demonstrating the organ section for us, along with a one-note vocal.

Snowy and Modular

Snowy has found a nice place to nap atop this impressive modular system. In addition to the TipTop Audio case, we see offerings from many module-makers: Music Thing Modular, Dreadbox, Qu-Bit, 4ms, Toppobrillo, Shakmat, WMD, Westlicht, and more.

Really want to make some bleeps and bloops but don’t have the heart to move this sleepy fluffball.

We at CatSynth can sympathize.

Gerty and Tiny Studio (Ableton, Korg Volca)

Gerty returns with a “tiny studio” consisting of Ableton Live! and a pair of Korg Volcas. The Volca Modular is a favorite of ours at CatSynth.

Micro-Studio… indoors today, lollygagging around version…My intern is not amused by the squalling bleeepy-bloopy modular synth stuff…

Meowsic Keyboard and Hello Kitty Guitar

A Mewsic Keyboard (a favorite among circuit benders and CatSynth enthusiasts), a Hello Kitty toy guitar, and other toys ready for a creative adventure. From adamneutron on Instagram.

he Meowsic Keyboard will eventually get circuit bent when I find the time. I already have some ideas what I want to experiment with.

We at CatSynth wish Adam happy experimentation.
