Mae and Elektron Digitakt (and iPad)

Mae returns this week, with an Elektron Digitakt plus a connected iPad. Submitted by Alessandro Cilano via our Facebook page.

The Digitakt is a fun little instrument that excels at beats and other patterns. I did have the opportunity to play one at NAMM a few years back.

See Mae’s other appearances on CatSynth 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.

CatSynth Pic: Studio Panther (Arturia, Elektron, GameBoy)

A gorgeous house panther shows off her studio, which includes a MicroBrute and controllers from Arturia, an Elektron SidStation, and a Nintendo GameBoy. From Shaun Steven Struble on Facebook, who says this about the GameBoy:

My main composition machine. If I can write it in three voices on the gameboy and it sounds good, I know it’ll sound good when I expand it to the other synths.
