Drum KAT Cat

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.

Meiko returns today, posing adorably among the synths and cables of Charles Whiley’s studio in Arkansas.

it seems we have a growing ensemble cast of cats that appear regularly on these pages. To see more of Meiko, visit her tag.

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.
