CatSynth pic: Arrakis, Poly 800 and other stuff

Arrakis and Poly 800

Submitted by Yann Antimoine via our Facebook page.

As a fan of the Dune series, I can say that we at CatSynth approve of Arrakis’ name :) . Additionally, the Poly 800 II was among the first true synthesizer I encountered as a possible purchase (though I didn’t get it).

If you have a cat-and-gear picture to share, you can post it on our Facebook page, where you can also see additional cat posts and banter that don’t appear on the blog.

CatSynth pic: Korg Mono/Poly and Charlotte the Cat

2 Comments

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.

Emily sings in front of a modular synth and sequencer.  I also see a Korg mini Kaoss pad.

CatSynth pics: Korg MS-20 with KORG 35 Filter & Synth Cat

Via matrixsymth:

Currently listed for sale here. “This vintage MS20 is THE MS20 to buy if you’re looking for an original Korg 35 filter version in both great physical and functional shape for a very reasonable price and shipped from WITHIN THE US, NOT JAPAN, WITH US VOLTAGE! As said earlier, this MS20 has the original Korg 35 filter circuit chips (no screw/daughterboard in the VCA section, front panel has the more grey-ish hue than the later versions, which typically have a more jet black-ish hue). It’s in great physical condition for its age, with only minor surface blemishes, and no missing parts, broken parts, major dents, or major damage. The only flaw I can think of is a very small chip out of the bottom of one of the keys (not visible when viewed from above; doesn’t affect function). There is also a vintage sticker on the right end cap, which could be easily removed…”

“All sounds made with a microKORG, monotron DELAY, and my trusty domestic shorthair (special calico variant).”

We are quite fond of the Monotron Delay, too.
