White Cat Affection and Keyboard

Beautiful black-and-white photo of a white cat giving affection to a sibling next to a white keyboard. An exercise is both contrast and sweetness.

Metasonix, Qu-Bit, Native Instruments, and White Cat

This cat has a pretty awesome Metasonix setup, with several yellow modules and stomp. We also see offerings from Qu-Bit and Native Instruments.

Here’s some UAC (light combat) stuff!

The main synths are running through several parallel stages of distortion (tube+solid state), waveshaping, heavy compression and harmonic saturation.💀

The cat, on the other hand, isn’t running through anything and is completely unprocessed! 🐁

Speaking of the cat, notice how he’s watching my every move, like he’s learning.
I’m convinced he’s plotting to take over my career one day! 🤔

White Cat with Nerdseq and Massive Modular

A beautiful white friend returns, longing behind a Nerdseq tracker-sequencer and in front of the same massive modular system from this post. We also see modules on the vertical section from Rossum Electro-music, Make Noise, Mutable Instruments, Intellijel, TipTop Audio, SSF, Random Source “EuroSerge”, as well as Catalyst Audio, Ciat Lombarde, and Mystic Circuits.

The Nerdseq is an intriguing instrument, essentially an old 90s-style “tracker” sequencer in Eurorack form. The boxes on the screen would be familiar to anyone who worked with trackers and MOD files, but the flexibility and possibilities of CV input and output.

Cat in the Studio (Behringer, Modular and more)

The white cat from Kamal Sabran’s studio returns. We see a Behringer Poly D and DeepMind, sundry modular, and a lot of beautiful retro gear including reel-to-reel tape recorders. A microKORG appears to be stacked in the lower-left corner.

⚡️new film score / kambing soon 🐐

Shuggie and Make Noise

Shuggie (Sugarplum) is beautiful, and she poses purrfectly with these instruments from Make Noise, including the 0-Control, 0-Noise, and sundry modules.

Shuggie (Sugarplum) visited me in the cave today

We at CatSynth love when the cats come visit us in the studio, too.

CatSynth Pic: White Cat and Massive Modular

A beautiful white cat poses in front of a massive modular system. We familiar offerings from Rossum Electro-music, Make Noise, Mutable Instruments, Intellijel, TipTop Audio, and SSF. We also see Random Source “EuroSerge” modules; and some less common models from Catalyst Audio, Ciat Lombarde, and Mystic Circuits. And there is more that we weren’t able to identify right away. This cat has a truly impressive setup.

Moose with Make Noise 0-Coast and 0-Ctrl

Moose has found a nice spot behind the Make Noise 0-Coast and 0-Ctrl semi-modular synthesizers. Submitted by Galen Disston via our Facebook page.

Moose is putting together a sequence on the 0-Ctrl.

The 0-Ctrl and 0-Coast are quite a pair, a real-time sequencer control surface to go with a very playable semi-modular synth. We know Moose and his human are going to have a lot of fun making music with them.

CatSynth Video: Meditation with Korg, Arturia, and White Cat

A very meditative piece from our friend Kemal Sabran. The little white cat is definitely relaxed by these calming sounds.

CatSynth Video: Cat Sound Bath Research #3

Beautiful and hypnotic “sound path” performance from Kamal Sabran. The kitten seems very relaxed and content listening to it, as do I.

We see an Arturia Microbrute, Kaoss pad, and a wide variety of items including a classic reel-to-reel tape recorder, circuit toys, analog oscilloscope, and more. You can see a previous post from Kamal Sabran here.

CatSynth Pic: Roland JD-Xi

Beautiful white cat with Roland JD-Xi synthesizer. Submitted by André Luiz via our Facebook page.

The JD-Xi is a small affordable synth that includes analog modeling, PCM-based sounds, and a vocoder. It seems in some ways similar to a couple of the Boutique line, though its interface is closer to that of the AIRA line. We at CatSynth are particularly curious about the vocoder features…
