CatSynth Pic: Kimball Collins with Roland V-Synth XT

2 Comments

Kimball Collins

From an eBay auction, via matrixsynth.

“The ultimate FSU rack sampler/synth. Includes vocal processor & D-50 modes. Comes with PCMCIA-to-CompactFlash adapter and 512MB CF card loaded with waveforms for synthesis exploration. Useful as an external effects processor, too. Clean condition, smoke free home, minimal rack rash on included ears.”

“The cat’s name is Kimball Collins (after the DJ).”

While not much interest per se in this specific synth, I have been a bit curious about the Roland D50/D550, mostly because I like the partials. If you have opinions about either the Roland V-Synth XT or the D50/550, please let us know in the comments :)

This image was circulating on CatSynth with only the male musicians on the left-hand side. With the help of my friend Kitty Ookpik, a great electronic musician in her own right, we added the last line to reflect the fact that synth chicks with cats rule ;)
