We have a new version of CatSynth: The App! available on the Apple App Store. This is a tremendous update. The best version of CatSynth: The App! ever. We have rethought the user experience while preserving the distinctive style. It also happens to match Sam Sam’s markings quite nicely.
It is smoother and simpler to browse and read articles on your mobile device. And for the built-in Mystery Synths, we have added MIDI input support!
You can play the synths with an external MIDI controller or sequencer using either the network or (on iPads) a class-compliant MIDI USB device. We will have some video demos of this soon.
If you have an iOS device, please do try out the app and let us know what you think! 😺
It’s been a little while since we visited with Sam Sam.
She is quite active, constantly running around and reminding us that she is nearby and needs attention.
In this upside-down pose one can see her “goatee” more fully. It’s part of her distinctive face markings.
We are quite enjoying her many antics. Here we see Sam Sam walking the ledge in the studio, looking for attention of course.
No words needed when Sam Sam turns on the adorableness.
Sam Sam continues to come into her own at CatSynth HQ, even claiming the “throne” pillow in the main room.
In this portrait, one can see that she has not just the distinctive smudge on her nose, but also a little spot of black on her chin. A goatee of a sort.
She has also become quite talkative, often letting us know when she wants attention or has an opinion to share.
And she does want a lot of attention. Samantha has taken to frequently rolling around on the rug and exhorting us to play.
We at CatSynth are happy to oblige.
Sam Sam continues to adjust to life at CatSynth HQ and charm us in the process. She is very sweet and loves affection and conversation. And she is spending more and more of her time out and about with us.
She does still find the stairs and balcony an interesting concept, but she is getting more used to that, too.
