Cute kitten on a Korg MS-20 synthesizer. Below is a Yamaha CS 15, and above we see a stack of DX-era ROM cartridges. From Frank Jacobs via Facebook. You can see a picture of this kitten with mom here.
This cat has found a nice napping spot on top of a Behringer Poly D. We also see an Arturia keyboard and a Rolland VP9000 voice processor. From Steve Jones via Facebook.
The Behringer Poly D takes their Model D and expands it to four voices along with a wood-paneled keyboard reminiscent of the original Minimoog. The Roland VP9000 was released in 2000 as one of the first samplers to allow vocal manipulation of speed, pitch, and formant independently in real time.
Basti naps near a collection of keyboard synthesizers, including a Sequential Prophet X. We also see a MicroKorg and a Novation keyboard. From Andras Karoly via Facebook.
Here is a close-up of Basti sleeping.
The keyboard in this photo appears to be a Nord.
Please check out our chat with Dave Smith about the Prophet X from NAMM 2019.
Cat sits in front a vintage Korg EM-570 Echo Mixer. From Frederic Fantastic Preuss via Facebook. Contents of the suitcase above the cat left as an exercise to the reader.
The EM-570 is a 5-channel mixer with EQ and echo (big-bucket brigate) per channel. It pairs nicely with vintage synthesizers.
An adorable photo of a mother and kitten on a Yamaha SK30. Above them is a Korg Polysix, and off to the right is a Roland Juno. From Frank Jacobs via Facebook.
My cuties love analog, too.
The SK30 was a combination organ, string, and subtractive synthesizer, released in 1980. All of the SK series had the organ and string sections, but different models had different synthesizer sections. The SK30 had two synthesizer sections, a dual-oscillator polyphonic section that was good at classic pads, and a solo monosynth section with multiple waveforms, envelope and filter. As a bonus, one could play the solo synth and one of the other modes (organ, string, polysynth) at the same time.

This cat has found a nice warm napping spot atop a SOMA Laboratory Lyra 8. Submitted by Robin Hill via our Facebook page.
Welcome to the world of sound of LYRA-8, the unique organismic analogue synthesizer designed by Vlad Kreimer. “Organismic” means that LYRA uses some principles that lie in the base of living organisms. The way how LYRA’s modules interacting between each other and the behaviour of the instrument resembles a live conversation.https://somasynths.com/lyra-organismic-synthesizer/
A cat sits in the command char or a small studio featuring the Serum wavetable software synthesizer, a large Eurorack system, an Arturia BeatStep Pro, Strymon Big Sky, and more. We are particularly curious about that small device with the grid of purple buttons. The cat, on the other hand, looks ready for a nap.
A cute tuxedo cat performs on a Moog Subsequent 37 synthesizer. Or is it a Sub 37? Sometimes I can’t tell.
