Casper, Paul, and Speak&Spell

Caspar (black cat) with Paul (human) who sports a Speak&Spell t-shirt. The venerable Speak&Spell has become a mainstay of circuit-bending and other lo-fi electronic music practices.

Submitted by Paul Williams via our Facebook page.

his is Casper, he is the friendliest cat and he belongs to our hosts at an Air B&B we’re staying at in North Wales.

Always fun to meet friendly cats on travels.

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

Oberheim (the cat) and JL Cooper Synapse MIDI router

Oberheim the cat is back, this time with a JP Cooper Synapse MIDI router and processor. From Charles Whiley via Facebook.

The JL Cooper routers were among the earlier MIDI devices I read about as I was understanding what is needed to go from one synthesizer to a home studio. I never did get one (not practical for me at that time in the late 1980s), but I still have the Digital Music Corp MX-8 that got later on to serve a similar purpose.

Mina and Korg MS2000

Two beauties today: Mina the lovely black cat, and a vintage Korg MS2000 synthesizer. From synthguy on Instagram.

At least my synths are well guarded. Mina and the MS2000.

The MS2000 is a virtual analog instrument that combines the vintage sounds of the MS series (e.g., the MS-10, MS-20, MS-50) with an equally vintage industrial design, reminiscent of Korg’s 1970s keyboards. We know Mina and her human must have a lot of fun playing it.

Ciat-Lombarde Plumbutter and Korg Volca Modular

Black cat with a Ciat-Lombarde Plumbutter, Korg Volca Modular, orange and green stackable patch cables, and other devices.

This cute black cat looks ready to play a Ciat-Lombarde Plumbutter. We also see a Korg Volca Modular, another Volca, and a device that looks to be a Pocket Operator. We at CatSynth also respect this cat’s well-organized patch cables.
