CatSynth video: The Scanimate

Moog Little Phatty and the Scanimate

From experimentalsynth on YouTube, via matrixsynth where you can read more and see more images. A cute black cat makes a cameo appearance during the video 🙂

“The first attempt at controlling analog video animation with control voltage created by a Moog synthesizer. Learn more at and”

“Scanimate is a 100% analog video animation system in use form the late 60s to early 80s. It was used on a number of popular films & TV shows including, Star Wars, Logan’s Run, Sesame Street & NBC Sports. Only eight were built and they originally sold for around $1,000,000.”

It’s interesting to consider in the context of the recently released LZX analog video modular synthesizer.
