CatSynth Video: Pittsburgh Modular Voltage Research Lab with Elliott

We have a treat for you today, a sequence of the OP-Z from Teenage Engineering sequencing the Voltage Research Lab from Pittsburgh Modular. Elliott the cat presides, and by all accounts approves 😸.

CatSynth Pic: Milo and Modular

We wrap up our week of Milo and Jet with this picture of Jet leaning against a modular synth. This is a pose worthy of Big Merp 😸

Thanks to Keith Winstanley for all the pics. We will feature Milo and Jet in the regular rotation going forward. If your cat has posed with synthesizers or any other musical instruments, please let us know in the comments, via Facebook, or Twitter @catsynth.

Looking to the future, sitting on the past. 

Identification of the “past” modules left as an exercise to the reader.

CatSynth Pic: Merp, Modular, Mother-32

Big Merp enjoys hanging on the synth side of the studio among the cat tchotchkes. He blends in quite well behind the main modular system, next to a Moog Mother-32 and our Roland VP-03 vocoder.

CatSynth Pic: Mystery Cat and Modular

Today we feature this handsome senior house panther with a modular system. It looks it might be a Moog modular! From Teh Autowitch via our Facebook page.

The Mystery Cat! He’s around 19 years old, deaf, and very helpful.

We wish the Mystery Cat more years to come is his long life!

CatSynth Video: Black Cat and Theremin

We start off this week with a black cat playing the theremin.

She only likes that one note. #theremin #catsynth

We get a peek at some modules below, and I find myself wondering if the theremin is controlling them. She definitely sees the antenna as a toy 😸. It reminds us of our video of Merp with the photo theremin.

CatSynth Pic: Zelda the Gray, Murphy Brown, and Modular

Zelda the Gray returns with her friend Murphy Brown and a modular system. I see a Moog Mother-32 along with offerings from Roland, Mutable Instruments, Sputnik, Make Noise, and more, housed in a 6U Arturia Rack Brute case. From zeldagraymurphybrown on Instagram.

CatSynth Pic: Max in the Studio (Modular, Model D, and more)

Max, with his lovely marble markings, explores the studio. He is walking past an impressive collection of Eurorack modules, stepping on an Arturia BeatStep, and about to tweak some patches on the Behringer Model D. From coresect23 on Instagram.

CatSynth Pic: Big Merp and Modular

As promised in yesterday’s Weekend Cat Blogging post, here is Big Merp with our main modular system.

He always wants to be wherever the action is, and at that moment the action was in the studio, where I was editing our latest episode of CatSynth TV, which itself has a feline theme.
