Our feline friend Charlie is ready for a drone recording session. Antoine Marronclɘs via Facebook.
We see some pedals from Red Panda, IdiotBox, and others. Zooming out, we also see an Elektron Digitakt box, a vintage portable cassette recorder, as well as more pedals.
And zooming back in to that cat on the Red Panda Tensor pedal.
This Tensor pedal is quite intriguing, as I have a longstanding interest in tape effects. From the official website:
The Tensor™ gives you live reverse and tape stop effects, pitch shifting, time stretching and hold functions that you can combine in creative ways. Slow down, speed up and rewind in real time. Stretch or compress time with no pitch change. Loop, overdub, and randomly slice phrases up to 9.4 seconds (4.7 seconds in stereo).
Milali is back, using the Future Retro Revolution to reach…something up on that shelf. We also see an Arturia MicroFreak – a personal favorite of ours – and the Korg MS-20 that we saw in Milali’s previous appearance.
Cats sitting on synths are a regular occurrence on this site – it’s kinda what we do. But our cat today is sitting on synth covers. Some beautiful covers, actually. There is the ARP Odyssey with classic lettering, and the more oblique “Synthesizers” with future-retro lettering. What actual synth lies beneath the cover and the cat is left as an exercise to the reader.
This cat is singing to accompaniment from a Behringer RD-8 Rhythm Composer and a modular system housed in Arturia RackBrute 6U case. We see offerings from Mutable Instruments, Dopfer, TipTop Audio, Behringer (again), Endorphines, and more.
This beautiful Siamese cat is holding court in a studio featuring an Akai APC40 controller (for Ableton Live), a pair of Korg Kaoss pads, and a Keith McMillen (KMI) QuNexus controller. And that appears to be a dead furby next to the cat.
