CatSynth Pic: Juno and Serge Clone

Juno is back again this week; he clearly loves this blue Serge clone module. There are also quite a few other interesting modules in his collection, clearly a cat with good taste!

CatSynth Pic: Marcel, Crumar Bit One, and Italian Vintage Synth

It’s turning out to be a week of black cats here at CatSynth. Today, our friend Marcel from polynominal.com returns, this time with a Crumar Bit One and an (unnamed) Italian vintage synth. From polynominal.com on Facebook.

We at CatSynth were not that familiar with the Crumar Bit One, so we looked it up on Vintage Synth Explorer:

The Bit One is a 6 voice programmable polyphonic analog synthesizer with digital control that rivals the Roland Juno-106 synthesizer. The 61-note keyboard is equipped with velocity which is a rare option among similar synths! The 2 computer controlled oscillators, 6 voltage controlled filters, 6 VCAs and 2 LFOs each per voice, easy hands-on editing and a double/split mode keyboard make this one phatt analog polysynth!

Pansona (Fatgirl) with an Arturia Minibrute 2S, Roland TB-03 & Roland TR-08… She’s wondering why I’m not yelling at her to get off the table…

Far from yelling at cats to get off the table, many of us not only tolerate but have grown to enjoy their antics on our music-making surfaces. We at CatSynth certainly feel that way.

CatSynth Pic: Black Cat on Moog Grandmother

Beautiful black cat with Moog Grandmother synthesizer

An adorable black cat performs on a Moog Grandmother synthesizer. We also a Korg Volca and a nice-looking Zoom R16 audio interface nearby. From Drew Christopher Ratliff‎ via Facebook.

I absolutely love this beautiful little cat with black fur and green eyes. But it does remind me a bit of our sweet Luna, so this is a little layer of sadness along with the beauty.

The Moog Grandmother is part of the semi-modular series that also includes the Mother-32 and the Matriarch. They are all very accessible ways to get into Moog synthesizers. And they have a colorful design reminiscent of the MG-1.

CatSynth Pic: Jet and Sequential Synths

Jet and Milo continue their weeklong march through the pages of CatSynth. Today, Jet shows of two classic Sequential synths, the Pro One and Prophet 5.
