Cat with Elektron, Roland, FMR Audio

A beautiful cat with their paws on Elektron Oktatrack (original edition), a Roland JV module (I’m pretty sure it’s the JV-1080), and an FMR Audio 1773 “Really Nice Compressor”. From discotheque_sauvage via Instagram.

We have one of those “really nice compressors” here in the studio at CatSynth HQ. It does live up to its name and is quite handy for live work as well as mixdowns.

Sissi Albert Moog

Sissy Albert Moog sits in the middle of a studio; quite appropriately, she sits atop a Moog semi-modular unit. We also see an Arturia MicroFreak, and offerings from Roland, Behringer, Dreadbox, Doepfer, Tiptop Audio, Elektron and more.

My Home Studio (in progress) with Sissi Albert Moog 😺😊

We at CatSynth think the studio is coming along quite nicely.

Rituari 2022: Cat with Elektron Digitone

Illustration of a cat playing an Elektron Digiton

Today we have an illustration featuring a cat playing an Eketron Digiton. From plastichelmet on Instagram.

#rituari2022 ger idag drömdjur. Det blir givetvis #catsynth. Jag har köpt en begagnad synt idag men får fortsätta drömma om det som många andra med synthar har – en katt som vill vara med i ljudskruvandet. Livet är orättvist för oss kattallergiker.

Translating from Swedish to Googlish:

#rituari2022 today gives dream animals. It will of course be #catsynth. I bought a used synth today but can continue to dream about what many others with synths have – a cat who wants to be part of the sound crew. Life is unfair to us cat allergy sufferers.

This appears to be part of a series of illustrations every day this month. And cat allergies are indeed a curse.

Orion with Modular and Elektron (Make Noise, Doepfer, Flight of Harmony)

Valentino with Elektron RYTM & Octatrack

This is not Big Merp. It’s our friend Valentino, who has found a nice napping spot between the Elektron RYTM and Octatrack and the computer (with an Orion interface). We also see a Red Panda Particule pedal.

Had to unplug the RYTM + Octatrack because that’s where he wants to sleep right now.

As the late great Serena Toxicat said, “A cat does what a cat does” 😸

Smokey in the Studio with Novation Summit, Elektron, Studio Electronics, and More

Smokey as a place of honor in this studio place of honor in this studio. On the right is a Novation Summit, in the center are offerings from Elektron. In the Upper left in the Studio Electronics Boomstar that we saw in a previous post with Smokey’s fellow feline Valentino, and on the left is a synth that we leave as an exercise to the ready.

Valentino and Electron Octatrak

Valentino has found a comfy spot between an Elektron Octatrak (version 1) and a mixer. And it doesn’t look like he wants to move any time soon.

I guess I’ll have to work around him:)

Valentino looks even more like Big Merp than in his earlier photos.
