I guess when Octave went bankrupt a lot of stock was "misplaced". I can recall at least two times back in the 90s when a number of boxed units (both Cats and Kittens) popped up for sale.

Everything about this video is stellar. A mint Cat well explained and a beautiful composition at the end. Well done Dave.

Great video Gforce - must have taken a while to make, so thanks. Enjoyed learning about a new synth and particularly liked the music at the end. Triffic!

Dave Spiers is a 10th degree black belt in all things regarding synthesizers.

The original music at the end was awesome, and made me want to put on my expanding headband.

I'm hoping for a Cat soft synth!

Totally enjoyed that video. It was really well measured & i think good archive material. The synth sounds lush ,especially that low end, boom ! Thankyou, i look forward to the catstick vid .

Excellent walk through of a nice compact synth that was actually quite expressive. It would have been interesting to hear about the mechanical properties of the synth, such as key bed and knob quality, oscillator stability and which parts tend to go bad on them, but I loved the presentation and the track at the end was great.

If my memory serves me right (I haven't watched the video yet, so I don't know if it's mentioned), the Octave Cat was equipped with the SSM2040 which imho is one of the best sounding 4-pole LPF circuits ever made. That very filter was found on the early Prophet 5's (pre Rev. 3) as well.

Correction/clarification. Apparently it's the early Cat's that have the SSM2040, the later model used the SSM2044. Also a great filter, but I personally prefer the SSM2040 out of the two.
