Handsome Leo poses next to a Moog Subsequent 37 synthesizer. Submitted by jenny Grover via our Facebook page.

This appears to be one of the limited-edition Moog Subsequent 37 CV versions which were introduced at Moogfest. I must admit, we at CatSynth are a bit envious of Leo and Jenny on this one 😸🎹

Adorable Betty the black cat sits atop a vintage Yamaha CS20m synthesizer. From Edda Jayne Hill via Facebook.

Betty loves the CS20m

And she is certainly in good company! Long before Yamaha’s dominance in the mid-1980s with the DX series of FM synths, they created the CS series of analog subtractive synthesizers. Although similar in topology to other analog synthesizers of the era, they had their own unique sound and character and were prized by many artists.

CatSynth Pic: Mystery Cat and Modular

Today we feature this handsome senior house panther with a modular system. It looks it might be a Moog modular! From Teh Autowitch via our Facebook page.

The Mystery Cat! He’s around 19 years old, deaf, and very helpful.

We wish the Mystery Cat more years to come is his long life!

CatSynth Video: Black Cat and Theremin

We start off this week with a black cat playing the theremin.

She only likes that one note. #theremin #catsynth

We get a peek at some modules below, and I find myself wondering if the theremin is controlling them. She definitely sees the antenna as a toy 😸. It reminds us of our video of Merp with the photo theremin.

CatSynth Pic: Syd and Elektron Analog Keys

Syd sits atop an Ekeltron Analog Keys synthesizer. From Moustafa Elsayed via our Facebook page. Moustafa describes Syd as “my best musical buddy when I am playing”, a description that makes us smile 😻.
