“Hello lovely synthfolks, my cat Cleo and my dog Susi have a funny life. They always sleeps the hole day and listening to my music;-). The sequenz comes from my Dot.com 911 Sequenzer, I play the Minimoog, Synton Syrinx, Moog Prodigy, The effects comes from the Roland Juno 60 and from Doepfer Dark Energie”
I quite like the leopard-print Minimoog and modular case.
Our last post from NAMM 2010 features more images from the Analogue Haven booth, where I spent a fair amount of time.
First up, a modular from Make Noise:
I was particularly intrigued by the two-dimensional sequencer module (in the lower left). A wide variety patterns can be generated along the X and Y axis and modified by selectively removing elements or subsections.
This video probably doesn’t do it justice, but it at least provides some atmosphere:
A portable modular rock (from Analog Rocket) featuring modules from The Harvestman, including the Hertz Donut and Piston Honda:
If I put together a modular system anytime soon, I would want that monorocket case.
Of course, there are a splattering of Doepfer modules in many of these setups.
A compact modular setup from Tiptop Audio:
“I’m very happy with the new rig. It’s very West Coast Serge / Buchla compared to the ARP, it’s a very different beast. I’m looking forward to doing some serious recording with it.”
“Once again, Ernie is very helpful.”

Hi Folks, the night is cold and grey and I play Synthesizers. Sorry for the mistakes, I play live. My siamese cat Cleo listening, she love Synths also. Mini moog leadsound, Synton Syrinx leadsound, the sequenz is from the Modularsystem, My left Hand played the Roland V-Synth. Effects comes from the Roland Juno 60 and my little “kloiner Racker” Doepfer Dark Energie.
Synthesizers are my life!!1
Watch Cleo during the video. Like Luna, she sits quietly and puts up with her human’s weird sounds, but will make it very clear when she wants some attention for herself.
“My secret weapon for all two of my synthesizer videos is my cat, Buddy, who is a synthesizer virtuoso. He agreed to share one of his amazing jams with us. First he takes a stab at horror film fx, and then he goes slow and sultry with one of his more jazzy grooves.”

from g, via matrixsynth:
“Here is my late Cat, Sid… he loved hanging out with me when I worked on the synth, and also patch cables were one of his good games 😉
We at CatSynth send our thoughts for Sid’s family. As matrix says: “Cats and pets in general are the few things in life that unconditionally have your back, through the good and the bad times.”
Unconditional love and hanging out together while working on the studio. What more could one ask for?
YouTube via hamsterdunce, posted at matrixsynth:
An outtake of a recent video interview I made for SonicState.com when my Himalayan kitten (Dusty) steals the show and starts playing synth music behind me that actually sounds pretty friggin’ good. That jerk. It’s bad enough that he’s better looking, but I figured I at least had all the talent up in here’s.”
And this YouTube response from stretta:
And it’s Tuesday, so check out more Cats on Tuesday.
Saw this video on matrixsynth a little back:
Basically, it's a time-lapse video of a doepfer modular being assembled. The cat shows up towards the end, and seems quite curious.
You can watch the video here. Unfortunately, it is in some sort of protected MPEG-4 format that isn't very repost/embed friendly (i.e., like YouTube videos).
