CatSynth Pic: Studio Cat and 5U Modular System

A black cat in the studio, who seems rather unimpressed by the rather impressive 5U modular system. Said cat is also sitting some instrument from Oberheim.

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.

CatSynth Pic: Shadow and Brodie

Remember our pals Shadow and Brodie? Well, we have another photo of them honing electronic music skills. Via Shadow’s Facebook page.

Sadly, Shadow passed away in February. This is heartbreaking news, and our thoughts and condolences go out to his humans, as well as his feline brother who must miss him dearly.

CatSynth Pic: Dexter and LinnDrum

Dexter sits atop a vintage LinnDrum. Quite a prize of an instrument for feline and human alike! From Peter Fitzpatrick via our Facebook page.

Now resident in @Circuit3’s studio.

CatSynth Pic: Marcel and TB-303

Yesterday was “303” day – the date is 03-03 whether you use American or every-other-country format. And our friend Marcel is posing with a genuine Roland TB-303 for the occasion.

From Eric at polynominal.com via Facebook.

The TB-303 has become a prized instrument, so much so that multiple hardware and software clones have been created to meet the demand. Roland even came out with a TB-03 for its Boutique line.

CatSynth Pic: Obie in the Studio

Obie sits in the center of Charles Whiley’s impressive studio. Obie is short of Oberheim, and we of course love black cats. But he is rarely photographed with the synths compared to Mr. Maximillion. We are happy to be able to feature him today 😺

CatSynth Pic: Marcel, Moog DFAM, and Box

Marcel (black cat) in box next to Moog DFAM

A new Moog DFAM (Drummer from Another Mother) has arrived at the home of our friends at polynominal.com in Italy. But Marcel is clearly more interested in the box.

Yes, even synth cats love boxes!

CatSynth Pic: Rackmount Cat

A new picture from our friends Eric and Marcel at polynominal.com

Rackmount cat: done

A lot of amazing gear in this one picture. We leave it as an exercise to our readers to identify (but there are some hints in the tags).

CatSynth Pic: Black Cat, Nord, and Moog

This adorable black cat has found a nice spot to rest on a Nord Modular, which happens to sit above a Moog synthesizer.  From Pete Crane via Facebook.

Good thing our little synthcat doesn’t shed too much 
:3 🎹

And from resting to performing…
