Today we have CatSynth pics with our very own Big Merp, who loves to jump up on the desk. Here we see him with our Yamaha RX5 drum machine and our massive modular system. The Metasonix modules are easy to spot, as are the Make Noise modules. We also have MOTM, Rossum Electro-music, Sputnik modular, 4MS, Malekko, Folktek, Mordax, and more as we get into the second grouping in the distance. We also see a bit of the Arturia MiniBrute 2 and Moog Mother-32. A fuller accounting can be found in the tags.
Our friend Saruman from Mexico City has a nice stack of keyboards today: a Roland JX-8P (with a TR-707 drum machine on top), a Yamaha YC-20 combo organ below with its beautiful red finish; Saruman seems particularly interested in the small keyboard in the middle, which I’m thinking is actually two Casio SK-1s…
The lovely Olive returns, this time with a Korg DW8000 and Yamaha MOTIF. From Charles Whiley on Facebook.
I have been fascinated for a little while with DW8000. I encountered it back in the 1980s, but it was overshadowed for me by offerings from Yamaha, Roland, and Ensoniq. It came back to my attention a few years ago, and I started looking for an EX8000 (the rack version) – ultimately, I settled on its new successor, the Korg modwave.
You can see Olive’s previous appearances via her tag.
Olive is sitting pretty in a corner of the studio with sundry synths, including some older Yamaha instruments like a TX802, MCS2, and more). We also see an E-MU Proteus-2000-era module on the rack. The remaining synthesizers are left as an exercise to the reader.
