CatSynth Pic: Moog One

The black cat is proud to own this Moog One synthesizer. From Jon Sellers via Facebook.

Yet again, I forgot to check the scheduling link to see if the room was reserved

Fortunately, Sam Sam and I have a pretty good arrangement for sharing the studio. Merp, however, prefers to drop in unexpectedly – but we have a good time.

The Moog One is quite an impressive synth for a cat or a human.

 Per voice, Moog One offers 3 newly-designed analog VCOs, 2 independent analog filters, a dual source analog noise generator, analog mixer with external audio input,

CatSynth Pic: Phantom and Yamaha DX21

Phantom performs on a Yamaha DX21 synthesizer. From Andreas Gregor via Facebook.

This was Phantom. He had an ear for synthesizers. I recorded him on my DX21 one day. I think he might be the only cat that released a track on iTunes and Amazon. Lol.

The track Naptime Electronique is available on Amazon and Apple Music.

CatSynth Pic: Korg MS2000

Handsome black cat with a Korg MS2000 synthesizer. From our friend synthguy216 on Instagram, who asks “why so serious?”

The MS2000 is in the lineage of Korg’s MS-20 and MS-50, but uses analog modeling, and offers 4-voice polyphony. It was released in 2000, and combines the MS-style mix of pre-wired patching with very accessible real-time knob controls and a patching matrix via the LCD screen. There is also the MS2000R rackmount version.
