A fun little jam from our friend Kamal Sabran and his cats. Watch for a close-up of our non-plussed feline friend grooming right through the jam. I like the way the drum sounds and rhythms have been chopped up with loops, delays, etc. And as always, I’m curious about what the reel-to-reel is contributing.
Cammi Granato and Sidney Crosby are hanging out in the studio. We see (from left to right, clockwise) a Roland SE-02, Arturia MiniBrute red edition, Korg Minilogue, Moog Mavis, Subharmonicon and Mother 32; A large Eurorack System, Doepfer Dark energy, and more Eurorack. We also see musician Scott Smigiel.
We are celebrating our 500th episode of CatSynth TV! Hard to believe we have made so many of these, but we have and we’re still having fun with it.
This one features numerous synthesizers, including the Octave CAT, Pocket Gamelan, and various instruments from Arturia, Cherry Audio, Moog Music, Strymon, MOK, Buchla, Metasonix, Make Noise, and more. There is also an appearance by Sam Sam at about the 1-minute mark.
Today we have CatSynth pics with our very own Big Merp, who loves to jump up on the desk. Here we see him with our Yamaha RX5 drum machine and our massive modular system. The Metasonix modules are easy to spot, as are the Make Noise modules. We also have MOTM, Rossum Electro-music, Sputnik modular, 4MS, Malekko, Folktek, Mordax, and more as we get into the second grouping in the distance. We also see a bit of the Arturia MiniBrute 2 and Moog Mother-32. A fuller accounting can be found in the tags.
