Mojo the cat looks on as a musical performance with an Arturia Keystep and Moog Minitaur unfolds. He seems to quite enjoy it. Submitted by Bruce Oliver via our Facebook page.

Mojo was my little buddy for 17 years. He loved synth sounds but would vacate the room if you picked up a guitar!

One can never have too much sawtooth.

CatSynth Pics: MiniMoog Voyager

From @ModularSynths (Daniel.ModularSynths) on Twitter, we have this photo of a cat inspecting a MiniMoog Voyager. Specifically, it appears to be the Voyager XL model.

Immer neugierig (Always curious)

IWe are sure this cat is making some interesting music with his curiosity, although the Voyagers are monophonic. So we will only hear one paw at a time.

Please tweet us your cat-and-music @catsynth to be featured in a future post and across our social media platforms.

CatSynth Pic: Bondo with Moog, Roland and Vox

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!
