@Nedavine: Case arrived with a week to spare. Thanks @noisebug @monorocket

Not much space left to sit inside this Monorocket case 😉

Weekend Cat Blogging with Luna: Modular Synth

Luna and modular synth

Luna sits down to relax near the modular synth. The purple Monorocket case is completely packed with modules and a mess of wires that are the result of improvised patching. Fortunately, Luna seems to show no interest in the wires, but is more focused on her toys, such as the blue fish (one of her favorites).

The modular is currently set up in the living room for practicing ahead of my duo performance tomorrow night with David Samas. Apropos of Weekend Cat Blogging, the theme of the performance is leopard print. You can see a video of our past performance below and read more about it in this post.

Carnival of the Cats will be up tomorrow at Mind of Mog.

And the Friday Ark is at the modulator. Our modular synth contains modulators 🙂

CatSynth video: Luna and Eurorack Modular

Today, we at CatSynth have our very own “CatSynth video”. Luna looks on from her favorite beanbag chair as I attempt to operate the newly installed Eurorack modular synth.

This particular improvisation features the Metasonix R53, Make Noise Echophon, MOTM E350 Morphing Terrarium, and Circuit Abbey ADSRjr.

Our video was also posted yesterday by matrixsynth 🙂

CatSynth video: Drone Church for Cats

Drone Church for Cats from Keith Fullerton Whitman on Vimeo.

The drone sounds from the modular system are quite nice, and about halfway through the video it pivots to the cats. It made me smile this morning. The cats, on the other hand, seem completely disinterested in the music.

I will get a modular system one of these days…

CatSynth pic: Monsturo: modular set-up

From Analogue Haven on flickr, via matrixsynth:

“Beautiful photo of a nearly full Monorocket Lexington by Monsturo. Nice selection of modules from a variety of manufacturers. Lots of oscillators, multiple filters and several sequencers for control. The Harvestman Stilton Adaptor is used for integrating external effects. LINK: www.myspace.com/monsturo.”

I have tagged some of modules I recognize (e.g., from NAMM).  Click on the tags for other pictures, info and articles.

Notice the framed “Yes we Cat” poster on the side? We posted it here last year after seeing it on Muff Wiggler last year.
