CatSynth video: Plugiator Demo 2- Prodyssey and B4000

From kennykeyboard on YouTube, via matrixsynth:

The virtual analog synthesizer is largely preset in live use but quite programmable with the computer thanks to familiar GUI. I just play sounds from the ARP Odyssey model and a smaller riff from the tonewheel organ model. My cat sits on the patio table listening, purring, and sometimes getting in the way.

And a second video:

Can anyone recognize the synth underneath the cat?

“Buchla 227 progress photo.  Front panel. I did get a little crazy making sure each nut was aligned symmetrically again.”

“auto-un-installation of girl-cat module”

Among the cutest cat-and-synth videos I have seen so far 🙂

Can anyone identify the any of the modules?
(UPDATE: thanks to prophei for identifying the modules)

UPDATE: we actually featured Francesca back in 2007.

The Gakken SX-150 is a DIY analog synthesizer kit.

You can hear more of Bethany’s music via myspace or soundcloud.

Some more photos from pulsewidthmod on flickr:

Not “cat and synthesizer” pics per se, but they do include equipment that is often overlooked but still vital to making music. The mound of tangled cables puts our messy cables at CatSynth HQ to shame. They also reminded me a bit of Christina Mazza’s drawings from the SF Recology Artists in Residence opening that I saw a few weeks ago.

CatSynth pics: Mister Kitty

We at CatSynth introduce Mister Kitty!

Photos submitted by prophei.

Although hard to see in this photo, the modular features several of the modules we reviewed in our Analogue Haven @ NAMM article. Mr. Kitty poses with synths from Oberheim and Moog in the first photos.
