Meiko gets ready to lay down some rhythms on the Drum KAT. From our friend Charles Whiley.
You can see Meiko’s previous appearances here, and all of Charles’ contributions to CatSynth here.
The Drum KAT has long been a fixture in the world of MIDI percussion. I remember the rectangular pad with “Mickey Mouse ears”, as well as the KAT Mallet and the “MIDI Kiti” that converted external triggers to MIDI, something that would still be valuable today with the proliferation of CV, modular, and alternative sensors for making music.
We are back from NAMM and resuming regular scheduled CatSynth Pics. Today we have one of our good friends, Mr. Maximillion, in the studio with Charles Whiley. They have quite the synth collection, and always encountering new ones in their photos. And while it isn’t a synth, that mixing console is quite impressive.
Our week of cats in the studio concludes with the return of Meiko. It looks like she is pretty intent on the knob positions and laptop controls, probably putting together a great mix with her human Charles Whiley.
Obie sits in the center of Charles Whiley’s impressive studio. Obie is short of Oberheim, and we of course love black cats. But he is rarely photographed with the synths compared to Mr. Maximillion. We are happy to be able to feature him today 😺
