CatSynth Pic: Georgina and Akai MINIAK

Georgina sits proudly on top of an Akai MINIAK synthesizer. Submitted by Steve Lamb via our Facebook page.

I will confess, I was not familiar with the MINIAK. After looking it up on the Akai site, it sounds like an interesting little instrument, especially the vocoder. Indeed, it reminds us a bit, at least feature-wise, of the Roland JDxi (which also has a vocoder), although the oscillator sections differ significantly.

CatSynth Pic: Studio Meowskers with Persephone

Beautiful Persophone returns. This time she has an Arturia keyboard controller to go along with the Behringer Model D (center rear) and sundry other items. From Rob Robinson via Facebook.

CatSynth Pic: Black Cat on Moog Grandmother

Beautiful black cat with Moog Grandmother synthesizer

An adorable black cat performs on a Moog Grandmother synthesizer. We also a Korg Volca and a nice-looking Zoom R16 audio interface nearby. From Drew Christopher Ratliff‎ via Facebook.

I absolutely love this beautiful little cat with black fur and green eyes. But it does remind me a bit of our sweet Luna, so this is a little layer of sadness along with the beauty.

The Moog Grandmother is part of the semi-modular series that also includes the Mother-32 and the Matriarch. They are all very accessible ways to get into Moog synthesizers. And they have a colorful design reminiscent of the MG-1.
