OCTAVE THE CAT Synthesizer - Sounds & Patches | Synth Demo

Published on Dec 18, 2019 synth4ever

"Demo of Octave The Cat analog synthesizer, featuring tweaking on various sounds and patches. Filmed at Paul's Boutique music shop ( in Toronto, Canada.

Released in the 1970s, Octave the Cat is a monophonic/duophonic synth with 2 VCOs (2 sawtooth, 2 square wave, and 1 triangle) plus 2 sub-oscillators, 1 LFO, 1 VCA and 2 envelope generators (AR and ADSR). It also has some quirky modulation routings.

Both the original Cat and SRM Cat allow you to create some wild sounds including screaming leads, S&H patterns and noisy textures. It is a fun synth to explore as it offers a decent amount of sound design potential.

Octave The Cat is a classic synth similar in design to the Arp Odyssey, but with its own sonic flavor. If you have the chance to try one out, definitely give it a go."
