This adorable tabby is proud of its Roland rhythm composer and TASCAM mixer. Submitted by Brandon M. Rogers via our Facebook page.

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: Sascha at Space Kitty

Meet Sascha, an adorable tuxedo cat in residence at Space Kitty in Seattle. Looking at their Facebook page, they have a rather impressive collection of synths. This photo only includes some of the rackmount and tabletop instruments, including several classic E-MU 1U modules and offerings from Roland and Korg.

CatSynth Pic: Lilli and TR-909 (on 9/10)

Lilli poses on a TR-909 drum machine for 909 Day. That was yesterday. We’re a little late to the party, but we’re happy to feature her today.

CatSynth Pic: Ms Deucey in the Studio (Arturia, Roland, Korg, and more)

Meet Ms. Deucey, who has found a nice napping spot in between a Korg MS-20, white Arturia MicroBrute, a VK-8M from Roland, and something called “ATAK” 😸. Submitted by Elias Laughton via our Facebook page.

Here’s Ms Deucey, all of 13 years old, posing for the camera in my “pet free studio” 😬😬😬

Studios with cats are our favorite kind of “pet-free studio.”

Identification of the synths and other gear in this picture left as an exercise to the reader.

CatSynth Pic: Thala and Vintage Roland

Cute Thala plays with her human and a vintage Roland synthesizer. I’m pretty sure it’s an RS-09 Organ/String synthesizer.

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 Pics: #808Day and #InternationalCatDay

We have this triple image from Roland for the combination of “808 Day” and International Cat Day.

We hope you all have a good day today with your cats and music, whether in space or not.

CatSynth Pic: Big Merp, Modular Synths, and the Cone of Shame

Big Merp with synths and the cone of shame

Big Merp jumps up on the ledge behind the modular synths (the main system as well as the RackBrute). Also present are the Deptronics Thunderbell, Moog Mother 32, Roland Boutique VP-03 (with owl), and the Korg Volca Beats.

Poor Merp has had to wear the cone of shame since his surgery on Friday, but as this picture shows, by Wednesday he was feeling much better and back to his regular mischievous self. So we decided to liberate him from the cone.

He seems much happier without it 😸
