We have one cool cat at a jam session featuring theremin and electronic drums. Submitted by my friend (and thereminist) Kt on Mastodon.
Nicolai, Korg Microsampler, Alesis Drums and Compressor
Nicholai sits comfortably in front of a Korg Microsampler and Alesis drum machine and compressor. He also happens to be the brother of Hookah the Cat, whom we have featured many times here on CatSynth.
From Darren Douglas Danahy via Facebook.
Hookah the Cat is always getting on the CatSynth page for playing on my keyboards… Nicolai however, likes to hang out on the other side of the room by the Alesis drums & compressor along with the Korg microsampler, Kustom guitar amp, and Roland guitar synth. He actually likes to take the drumsticks from the area and play with them.
Sounds like Nicolai is becoming quite the drummer in his own way 😹
Persephone, Ensoniq ESQ, Roland Super JX, Alesis Drums
Persophone returns, along with her human Rob Robinson. This time they have a Roland Super JX, a classic Ensoniq ESQ 1, and an Alesis drum pad.
You can see Persophone’s previous appearances via this tag.
Dax and Alesis Nitro electronic drums
Adorable kitten Dax has found that the Alesis Nitro electronic drum set makes a great cat tower.
Dax is the little brother of Runkl, who has appeared on CatSynth many times. Submitted by Jeph Nor.
Black Cat with Roland, Kawaii, Yamaha, Korg, and more
A beautiful black cat with green eyes (like our beloved Luna) sits atop an impressive stack of modules. We see a Yamaha TX81Z (which we also have), as well as a few offerings from Roland, Kawaii, Korg, alases, and more Yamaha. From endmusik_studios via Instagram.
New art for the studio, but it’ll have to wait until the intern finishes recabling everything
Winchester with Moog, Sequential, Strymon, Alesis
Winchester (the cat) clearly loves being in the studio with his human and all their gear. We two Moog Mother-32s and another Moog synth to the right; a Sequential Pro One, the unmistakable blue of the Strymon Big Sky, and a device from Alesis in the lower right.

My little buddy Winchester loves being in my studio!
We love seeing cats and their humans happy together like this.

CatSynth Pic: Cat in the Studio
No, this isn’t Sam Sam, though this cat does look a bit like her from behind. This is the cat that lives with synthguy216, who shares this photo via Instagram. He has certainly mastered the art of playing two-tier keyboards 😸
