She loves #semimodular ❤️

Tweek n’aime pas trop le matin

This roughly translates to “Tweek does not like the morning very much.” Neither do we, Tweek, neither do we.

Blixa with Arturia, Roland, Behringer, Eurorack

Blixa returns to CatSynth today. We see an Arturia Drumbrute and Rackbrute stuffed with sundry Eurorack modules; a Behringer TD-3 (yellow edition) and a Roland TR-8s.

Cat on a Cat (Vintage Synthesizer Museum and Cat Man of West Oakland)

Two of my favorite local institutions, the Vintage Synthesizer Museum and the Cat Man of West Oakland, are back together again for this photoshoot featuring a beautiful siamese cat and the Octave CAT synthesizer.

I particularly like seeing the CATStick, which I had a chance to play when I visited the Vintage Synthesizer Museum last year.

Some more adorable images of a Cat on a Cat 😸

Minou and Lyra 8

Minou shows off a Lyra 8 from SOMA Laboratory. Submitted by Rex Epitheton via our Facebook page.

The Lyra 8 is a rather impressive and unique instrument, and one we would like to explore some day at CatSynth HQ. It looks like Minou is getting quite adept at it.

Basti with Korg 01/W, SQ-1, and Dreabox in the snow

A truly wintry scene with a Korg 01/W, a Korg SQ-1 sequencer, a small Dreadbox synth, and a color-matching cat Basti.

From Andras Karoly via Facebook. You can see Basti’s other CatSynth appearances here.

Cricket with Elektron Analog Rytm and Sequentix Circlon

Cricket sits atop an Elektron Analog Rytm and next to a Sequentix Circlon synthesizer. Submitted by Steve Curry Bilek via our Facebook page.

The Eletkron Rytm (and the later Rytm Mk II) are well known as prized as analog drum machines. The Sequentix Circlon is perhaps not as well known, but it is a beautiful-looking multi-track sequencer. I imagine Cricket can make some great beats and other music with this pair.

Current Mood (Cwejman, Roland, Make Noise, more)

Our first CatSynth pic of 2021 features an image from stretta on Twitter. A beautiful cat, with a Roland A-50 keyboard, a Cwejman S1 (semi-modular synthesizer) and several Make Noise modules (we have that Intellijel case here at CatSynth HQ).
