Kamal Sabran and Cat in the Studio

Kamal Sabran’s cats have appeared several times on CatSynth. This time, human and cat are together as they work on some experimental tracks. We see a Roland SP-404SX sampler/sequencer, a Behringer Neutron, a vintage Ace Tone Rhythm Fever, an analog oscilloscope, and an analog reel-to-reel tape recorder.

Check out their new album and more at spacegambusexperiment.bandcamp.com.

Pumpkin, Roland System 100, TR-808, Arp Odyssey, Korg MS-10

Pumpkin has an impressive set of vintage synthesizers, including the Roland System 100 modular, Roland TR-808 drum machine, ARP Odyssey, and Korg MS-10. From Lowfish on Twitter.

This is the setup for the track “c100” on the forthcoming Lowfish album “Grey With Breaks.” Pumpkin (my cat) gets ZERO credit for her contributions to this record. You can pre-order the limited edition “cloudy grey” LP version from Bleep here:


Please check out their new album. And we at CatSynth are here to recognize Pumpkin’s contributions.

Bread with Yamaha DX100 and DX7

Bread is back, and this time he is playing two of Yamaha’s classic FM instruments, the legendary DX7, and the smaller DX100. From thedigitalpurrgatory via Instagram.

Bread likes his frequencies modulated.

The DX100 is a four-operator FM synthesizer, similar to the DX27 and DX21, but lacking the extended features of the TX81Z. The DX7 is, of course, the six-operator FM workhorse of its era, and the most well-known of the entire line.


Intrepid reader @EvanUnoArt on Twitter found this amazing video from 2019. It was originally published by QRTR on Twitter as “a sunday morning meditation” [sic]. They also published the music as a track on Bandcamp 😺

Haku and Behringer CAT

It’s always extra fun to have a “CatSynth Pic” with a “Cat Synth”. Haku inspects the Behringer CAT, a remake of the infamous Octave CAT. From eriksuperlazy on Instagram.

I suppose it was only a matter of time before this photo happened. And as usual, Haku tried to chew the knobs.


We at CatSynth have both the Behringer CAT and the original. You can see our demo/tutorial of the original here.

Introducing Newt of the Rock Cats

Newt is the newest member of the Rock Cats that tour with the Amazing Acro Cats. He succeeds the late great Nue as the band’s keyboardist.

You may recall the Acro Cats from previous posts – we always make a point to go see them when they’re in town – and we even had the opportunity to talk to founder Samantha Martin for CatSynth TV.
