Orion shows off a complex patch on a Eurorack Serge system featuring modules by Random*Source. From Justin Sullivan (@justin3am) on Twitter.
We at CatSynth have long been curious about those Serge modules from Random*Source as a way of exploring Serge-style modular synthesis in more detail. The underlying premise is building up complexity from very simple building blocks like slope generators.
Orion from @orion_s_life on Instagram returns. He is posing handsomely with a Sequential synthesizer (we’re pretty sure it’s the Prophet 12) and a Novation Launchpad Pro. Both great choices, as we have a Prophet 12 (tabletop) and Launchpad Pro here at CatSynth HQ, too.
Orion stands proudly atop en Echo Fix Tape Echo EF-X2. To the right, we see a collection of instruments from Make Noise: Strega, O-Coast, and 0-Ctrl. To his left, we also see a Joe Meek compressor and Meequalizer combo.
This handsome boy is so funny! He gets up here whenever I start pulling patch cables. He like rubbing his face on cables, so this is like him saying “If I can’t pet myself, you need to pick up the slack!”
Handsome Orion poses in a sun puddle in front of an ARP 3260 keyboard. This is the keyboard that goes with an ARP 2600 synthesizer. From Justin Sullivan (@justin3am) on Twitter.
The original ARP 2600 didn’t have a keyboard built in. The 3260 was the keyboard that one could attach, and usually appears with it in regular use. You can see our video from NAMM 2020 testing out the 2600 reissue from Korg (which includes the keyboard).
This is not Big Merp. It’s our friend Valentino, who has found a nice napping spot between the Elektron RYTM and Octatrack and the computer (with an Orion interface). We also see a Red Panda Particule pedal.
