Siamese Cat (aka “meezer”) with a modular synth.  From alissaderubeis on Instagram.

I had a lot of fun in California. Special thanks to kitty for making it so I can finally do this cat synth thing. ❤️#catsynth#catsonsynths#catsingeneral#eurorack

We, of course, think California is a fine place for cats and synths.

Our feline friend Miep is back, this time with a Roland D-70 synthesizer.  FromDennis Matana via http://www.facebook.com/catsynth .

The Roland D-70 is not as common as the iconic D-50.  You can read more about it on Vintage Synth Museum .  Interestingly, it appears to have at least as much in common with the U series as the D series, and never achieved a similar popularity to the D-50.

CatSynth pic: Black Cat, Korg Volca FM, and More

Cute black cat playing a Korg Volca FM synthesizer. Submitted ‎by Stephen Cort Smith via our Facebook page.

This picture is too adorable, especially because we love black cats. But it’s also a reminder that I need to explore the Volca FM more here at CatSynth HQ as I have only scratched the surface.

CatSynth video: Novation Circuit Test

From molotovsystem on YouTube – aka “Luke’s Anger”, via matrixsynth.

Picked this (Novation Circuit) up yesterday 2nd hand for ridiculously cheap.

A fun little demo with some lo-fi sounds. The cat seems quite content, though unimpressed.

Cat on Prophet 5 in space

From Cats on Synthesizers in Space.

Interesting looking grey kitty on a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 analog synthesizer, one of the first fully programmable polyphonic analog synths, the Prophet 5 is the most classic synthesizer of the eighties, made from 1978 -1984 —————- I find the image of the cat most striking.
