Today we have CatSynth pics with our very own Big Merp, who loves to jump up on the desk. Here we see him with our Yamaha RX5 drum machine and our massive modular system. The Metasonix modules are easy to spot, as are the Make Noise modules. We also have MOTM, Rossum Electro-music, Sputnik modular, 4MS, Malekko, Folktek, Mordax, and more as we get into the second grouping in the distance. We also see a bit of the Arturia MiniBrute 2 and Moog Mother-32. A fuller accounting can be found in the tags.
Satie and Modular (Mutable Instruments, Make Noise, more)
Satie is once again posing handsomely atop his modular system – or rather, a modular that he shares with his fellow feline Tweek. In this view, we can see offerings from Mutable Instruments and Make Noise, and glimpses of others behind the nest of patch cords.

Tweek and Modular
Tweek and Satie, Modified Toy Piano, Modular
We’ve seen Tweek and Satie before on CatSynth, but I think this is the first time we have seen them together. Tweek is the tabby on the left and Satie is the gray on the right. Between them is a modified toy piano with springs and piezo microphone. The springs and the chamber of the toy piano make for some great resonance. And it is a purrfect input source for the modular system.

Do your cats like to lick your patch cables?
This is a new behavior for us – neither Sam Sam nor Big Merp does this. But each cat is unique, including synth cats.

Modular Glitch Kitten
Adorable kitten and a very cool modular sequence. From florigenix on Instagram, who gave a shout-out to the Befaco Muxlicer sequencer-and-switch module. I certainly hope the kitten found its forever home.
CatSynth Pic: Snowy and Modular
We have another photo of Snowy getting comfortable on the large modular system. Snowy was also featured last week.

Snowy and Modular
Snowy has found a nice place to nap atop this impressive modular system. In addition to the TipTop Audio case, we see offerings from many module-makers: Music Thing Modular, Dreadbox, Qu-Bit, 4ms, Toppobrillo, Shakmat, WMD, Westlicht, and more.

Really want to make some bleeps and bloops but don’t have the heart to move this sleepy fluffball.
