“You said you were getting an SH-101 goddamit!”

The MS-101 ios Behringer’s re-recreation of the infamous Roland SH-101 analog synthesizer. Like the original, it comes in red, blue, and gray, and has that crunchy bass sound. We at CatSynth had the opportunity to try it out at Behringer’s Pre-NAMM event back in 2019.

Meelee with Deluge, Moog, Mutable Instruments and More

Meemee the cat with a Synthstrom Audible Deluge, a Moog Mother-32 and Subharmonicon, and a variety of Eurorack synthesizer modules.

The adorable Meelee joins us today from Hong Kong with quite a setup. She has a Synthstrom Audible Deluge, a Moog Mother-32 and Subharmonicon, and sundry Eurorack modules including several from Mutable Instruments, Make Noise, Endorphines, Expert Sleepers, 4ms, Electro-smith, and more. Submitted by Jan Hohmann via our Facebook page.

The Deluge from Synthstrom Audible is a new one for us. It is a portable synthesizer, sampler, and sequencer. A very popular combination these days as we see many instruments that combine these features in different ways.

Eventide H9000, Universal Audio, and more.

Orion the cat in front of an Eventide H9000, Universal Audio boxes, and more audio processing gear.

A more recent photo of Orion, who we featured last week and in a few other posts. He really looks like Big Merp from this angle, though he has a smudge on the right side of his nose.

Orion (and Justin) have some very cool audio gear here, including the Eventide H9000 and some analog Universal Audio. We at CatSynth do covet these. 😸🎛

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.

Orion with Modular and Elektron (Make Noise, Doepfer, Flight of Harmony)

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.

Via Patricia Wolf on Twitter.

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” 😸
