Dali with MatrixBrute, Sequential OB-6, MPCX, Moog DFAM and More

Dali has quite the impressive synthesizer setup! In front we have an Arturia MatrixBrute, behind him a Sequential OB-6, Akai MPCX, the same Moog DFAM and Behringer TD-3 from the photo of his brother Rothko, a Behringer Model D, and a lot more. If you can name any of the other instruments, please feel free to share in the comments.

It’s clear who the synth lord is

It certainly is 😸

The Kiffness X Numnum Cat

This was fun. The Kiffness (aka David Scott) performs trumpet and electronics along with a rhythmic cat. Via the Kiffness’ Facebook page.

David Scott, also known by his stagename as The Kiffness, is a South African musician, producer and parody artist who is the founder and lead singer for the band, The Kiffness. Despite the name of the band, Scott is referred to as The Kiffness alone.Β

It looks like he features “collaborations” with cats quite often, so I suspect he will be back on CatSynth again soon.

Akai APC40, Korg Kaoss Pads, KMI QuNexus

This beautiful Siamese cat is holding court in a studio featuring an Akai APC40 controller (for Ableton Live), a pair of Korg Kaoss pads, and a Keith McMillen (KMI) QuNexus controller. And that appears to be a dead furby next to the cat.

Yes, that’s a Furby pelt pop filter.

CatSynth Pic: Georgina and Akai MINIAK

Georgina sits proudly on top of an Akai MINIAK synthesizer. Submitted by Steve Lamb via our Facebook page.

I will confess, I was not familiar with the MINIAK. After looking it up on the Akai site, it sounds like an interesting little instrument, especially the vocoder. Indeed, it reminds us a bit, at least feature-wise, of the Roland JDxi (which also has a vocoder), although the oscillator sections differ significantly.
