CatSynth pic: Ikea Rast Modular Synthesizer


Ikea Rast modular and cats

From Appliancide.

“Cats are very into beefy terminal blocks.”

I was actually looking into the Ikea Rast as a hackable piece of studio furniture, but I’m not sure it is precisely what I need. If only there was a way to make it slightly wider…

Another from our friends at Moog Music, Inc., via Twitter.


This picture of a kitten on a Moog modular actually appeared here on CatSynth before. I leave it as an exercise to the reader to find the post :)

CatSynth pic: Soft Lightning interview with I♥SYNTHS

1 Comment


Interview with Soft Lightning by I♥SYNTHS.

♥SYNTHS: You love your cats. Are they a big inspiration to your music? What are their names and what synths do they like the most?

Soft Lighting: I actually only have one cat and his name is Ziggy. My wife and I foster litters of kittens for our local shelter so we always have a bunch of new kittens around. They like ALL the synths and ALL the gear – especially hiding in the back of amplifiers.


There are quite a few more cat-and-synth photos in this post, I suspect a few more of them may show up here as well :)

Via matrixsynth, where you can read all the interviews with well-known synth artists and see quite a bit of classic and modern gear.

CatSynth video: Lo sbadiglio di Cocco patch

Comments Off

From Joao Ceser on YouTube, via matrixsynth.

“Modular :D”

Quite a few familiar modules in that system, including a few we have here at CatSynth HQ. I also like how the cat gets some love during the demo :)

CatSynth pic: Korg Mono/Poly and Charlotte the Cat


Some sad news via matrixsynth. One of our frequently featured synth cats, Charlotte, recently passed away.


Charlotte appeared in many photos featured on this site, often showing disdain for the synths. You can see a few examples here and here. She lived a good long life of 18 years, but it is still sad to lose a beloved pet, and our thoughts go out to her family.

The post on matrixsynth also featured some cool filtered images of the Korg Mono/Poly.

CatSynth video: Bookie with Tiptop modular


Video by Benjamin Hawkins on YouTube. Also on matrixsynth.

“My cat is chilling with this Tiptop modular system”

I love how Bookie is so relaxed around synth music. Luna is the same way :)

NAMM 2014: New WMD / Steady State Fate modules

1 Comment

Analog-module makers WMD had a strong presence at this year’s NAMM show. In addition to their existing offerings, which include both utility and more esoteric modules, they presented a set of devices that were jointly made with Steady State Fate (SSF). You can see a demo in this video.

It was fun how they made Zip, our trusty stuffed kitty, rock out to the modular :)
