“Original Mark 1 Octave CAT Model 1853 analogue synthesizer. Serviced and in perfect working order.
It’s possible to lose hours investigating what one of these can do – a very inspiring synth and one of our favourites. It’s Duophonic so you can play a bass/drone note and tap out a lead line as well – very effective.
This synth is in excellent cosmetic condition for its age.

“This unit is rev4 which makes it more reliable and able to understand midi cc data. The midi on this device is implemented in XLR. There are two special midi cables (in and out) included that connect to the unit’s XLR, and are normal midi DIN at the other end. There are no other supplied cables.
“Running through a few effects – 888 through Schippman Ebbe & Flut, and Lexicons PCM41 & PCM60 on the desk. Sequenced via Sequentix Cirklon
Apologies for the booming bass, my room is small and the standing waves abound! I’ll throw up a version directly from the mixer in the coming week.”
“Vintage Octave CAT Synthesizer model 1853, S/N A1955. Note: this is duo-phonic, pre SRM version… Three ICs were replaced and it was cleaned and calibrated… It is in good working condition and fully functional. Cosmetically it is overall good. All of the knobs are original except for three. In the photo they are the ones for VCO1 Coarse and Fine tuning and VCA volume.
