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.

It’s always a treat to come across other black cats named Luna. Our little girl would be proud.

CatSynth Pic: Moog One

The black cat is proud to own this Moog One synthesizer. From Jon Sellers via Facebook.

Yet again, I forgot to check the scheduling link to see if the room was reserved

Fortunately, Sam Sam and I have a pretty good arrangement for sharing the studio. Merp, however, prefers to drop in unexpectedly – but we have a good time.

The Moog One is quite an impressive synth for a cat or a human.

 Per voice, Moog One offers 3 newly-designed analog VCOs, 2 independent analog filters, a dual source analog noise generator, analog mixer with external audio input,

CatSynth Pic: Phantom and Yamaha DX21

Phantom performs on a Yamaha DX21 synthesizer. From Andreas Gregor via Facebook.

This was Phantom. He had an ear for synthesizers. I recorded him on my DX21 one day. I think he might be the only cat that released a track on iTunes and Amazon. Lol.

The track Naptime Electronique is available on Amazon and Apple Music.
