Primus programs a classic Roland TR-808. From Gunfire H. Horibly via our Facebook page.
The TR-808, or simple the 808 as it is affectionately known, was not an initial commercial success. It was only in production from 1980 to 1982 And its sounds were not particularly realistic, but it did have a distinct character than some artists of the time. It has since achieved a cult following and can be heard on more recordings than perhaps any other drum machine. Roland has also released two “reboots” in recent years, a “Boutique” TR-08 version and the TR-8s for the Aira series.
This handsome cat is in command in the studio, with a Roland System 8 (top), Behringer VC340 vocoder (center right), and a silver device that will be left as an exercise to the reader. [Update. An astute reader identified this as a Vermona DRM-1]
Cute little Abby sits next to a tower of vintage keyboard synths. On top is a Roland Alpha Juno 1; below it is a Roland S-10 sampling synthesizer. On the bottom level is a Casio CZ3000. The last one is left as an exercise to the reader.

Hola Buenos Días~ let’s meet the cat synthesizer.. 🐱🎹
The Juno-106 and Prophet 12 are both fine instruments. We at CatSynth have a Prophet 12 – it’s a favorite. As for the Juno, we are enjoying our virtual edition from Arturia. You can see our recent tutorial and review in this video.
Our first CatSynth pic of 2021 features an image from stretta on Twitter. A beautiful cat, with a Roland A-50 keyboard, a Cwejman S1 (semi-modular synthesizer) and several Make Noise modules (we have that Intellijel case here at CatSynth HQ).
