Grace returns to CatSynth, this time presiding as queen atop a rather impressive collection of vintage synths. We see Moog, Oberheim, PPG, Synergy, and more!

A new Moog DFAM (Drummer from Another Mother) has arrived at the home of our friends at
polynominal.com in Italy. But Marcel is clearly more interested in the box.
Yes, even synth cats love boxes!
Handsome Nico proudly shows off his Yamaha MOXF6 synthesizer. From Alan Kyle via Facebook.
The MOXF series is Yamaha’s current workstation line, which combines MOTIF XF with studio features such as MIDI+USB and DAW control. As for Nico, we hear he is quite the sweetheart. According to Kyle, he is “so well mannered and affectionate 😁”

Someone has already stolen my Christmas gift.
Usually, the cats just take the boxes 😸
Our first post of 2019 is…a cat in the studio. From Matt Vraja via Facebook.
Purr-fecting the mix
Identification of the gear left as an exercise to the reader.
Bondo sits proudly on an original-series Moog Voyager. Next to him is a Roland RE-501 chorus echo. In the corner, one can see a bit of a vintage Vox Super Continental organ. Quite a collection!

We see a Behringer Model D (aka “the Boog”), a Korg Mini Kaoss Pad (original edition), and a vintage synth module that we can’t identify behind the kitty.
It’s the 99th Episode of CatSynth TV, and we have a special treat for all our readers and videos. It combines many of our interests: synthesizers, cats, experimental music and film, and highways.
Video shot along Highway 99 in California from Manteca through Stockton and heading towards Sacramento. Additional video and photography at CatSynth HQ in San Francisco.
Guest appearances by Sam Sam and Big Merp.

A lot of amazing gear in this one picture. We leave it as an exercise to our readers to identify (but there are some hints in the tags).

My buddy Dexter, figuring out how to set the MIDI channel on the driftbox.
The REON Driftbox series of small synthesizers was introduced last year. Dexter’s appears to be a Driftbox SE model.
The REON Driftbox SE is a digital paraphonic Synthesizer with 2 digital oscillators and an analog Steiner Parker filter. It features also an impressive amount of connections on the backside.
We at CatSynth are learning more about these interesting little boxes. I find myself particularly intrigued by the J and S models.
