Bass lines with a phatness. SH-1000 with the filter up. No effects necessary.
There is also a video with the cat and the bass line
The Roland SH1000 was one of the first of the “SH” line of instruments, as exemplified by the organ-like elements. From Vintage Synth Explorer:
The SH-1000 is a monophonic analog synth with a single oscillator feeding a lowpass filter, an ADSR envelope, and two LFOs. It features 10 Preset sounds, but they are pretty weak. Fortunately you can create your own sounds for some really great mono-synth bass, lead, percussion and FX sounds. Basic square, ramp and pulse-width waveforms are available from the oscillator and the LFOs have sine, square and sample+hold. It has a terrific ‘Growl’ and ‘Wow’ effect for a pretty scary analog sound. It also features white noise, pink noise, portamento, octave transposition and a Random Note Generator. Although there is no user memory, unique sounds can still be quickly recreated or discovered thanks to its simple interface.
Meet Sniff. He is a Maine Coon and the son of Zatoichi who previously appeared with Metsonix gear. Sniff poses proudly with a Metsonix D-2000 and S-2000 along with several black modules. An impressive collection indeed!

That is one handsome cat. And we at CatSynth are fans of Metasonix – I would like to have a D-2000 in the collection at HQ some day.
This cat has found a nice napping spot on top of a Behringer Poly D. We also see an Arturia keyboard and a Rolland VP9000 voice processor. From Steve Jones via Facebook.
The Behringer Poly D takes their Model D and expands it to four voices along with a wood-paneled keyboard reminiscent of the original Minimoog. The Roland VP9000 was released in 2000 as one of the first samplers to allow vocal manipulation of speed, pitch, and formant independently in real time.
