Mode Machines Xoxbox

This cat is laying down some bass lines with the Xoxbox from Mode Machines. From Martin Nilsson via Facebook.

Cats love acid, it’s a fact!

The Xoxbox is a clone of the infamous Roland TB-303. Although smaller, it includes all the interface elements including the knobs and the one-octave keyboard section. It can also be used as a MIDI sequencer and controller.

Mackie (cat) working the ‘Mackie’ (MacBeth M5)

The MacBeth M5 is modern but rare analog synthesizer. It is reminiscent of a black-and-orange ARP 2600, but is a completely different instrument.

While reminiscent of the 2600, this is not a clone. It’s a semi-modular synthesizer that features a significant array of real-time analog controls with absolutely no digital circuitry at all. Totally faithful to the design and concept of early analog synthesizers, all sounds must be created by hand, tweaking knobs, patching cables and using a bit of creativity. There is no patch memory, no MIDI and no USB. Just really great analog sounds.

Cat with Behringer CAT

The Behringer CAT is a re-creation of the infamous Octave CAT synthesizer. We at CatSynth are looking forward to doing a side-by-side comparison in the near future.

KOMA Field Kit and Gramophone

This cat is quite engrossed in this performance featuring a KOMA Field Kit and Field Kit FX, and a vintage gramophone record player. We see a contact mic on the speaker feedback into the Field Kit, and more interesting things going on.

CatSynth Pic: White Cat and Massive Modular

A beautiful white cat poses in front of a massive modular system. We familiar offerings from Rossum Electro-music, Make Noise, Mutable Instruments, Intellijel, TipTop Audio, and SSF. We also see Random Source “EuroSerge” modules; and some less common models from Catalyst Audio, Ciat Lombarde, and Mystic Circuits. And there is more that we weren’t able to identify right away. This cat has a truly impressive setup.

Cat on a Cat (Vintage Synthesizer Museum and Cat Man of West Oakland)

Two of my favorite local institutions, the Vintage Synthesizer Museum and the Cat Man of West Oakland, are back together again for this photoshoot featuring a beautiful siamese cat and the Octave CAT synthesizer.

I particularly like seeing the CATStick, which I had a chance to play when I visited the Vintage Synthesizer Museum last year.
