A KITTEN II (2), Made in the USA, Approx 1981
(as used by the Chemical Brothers)

This is a serious piece of kit, so please feel free to arrange a try before you buy.

I no longer have the time to play it in the way it should be played.

Electrically this is sound and has just received a service. There is slight damage to the black inlay for one of the knobs (see 3rd pic).

This auction is for the synthesiser, manual & specification leaflet…. the full package.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Very rare and little used It has been stored for a number of years.

I do not have the leads to connect it up. So I can not play it, but, I have had it independently tested and it works as it should and makes some great sounds.

Power lead conection is included. All control buttons and sliders are there and all moving and working freely.

Condition good for its age.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Synth engine works fine but keyboard does not work above second E and low G does not work. Sliders replaced on A-D envelope and filter frequency. Knobs and sliders slightly scratchy. Cosmetics are VG+ with light tarnish back connectors and scratches front top back sides bottom. I have done my best to identify all issues with this instrument however there may be others so we are selling for parts only – not working – as is. Basically if you know how to get the keyboard to communicate with the synth engine then you’ll have a fully operational unit. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Octave Kitten Monophonic analogue synthesizer from 1982.

This is a real vintage beast. It has one oscillator but 2 sub oscillators so it can produce unbelievable sub bass. If you send me a message I will email you some samples of the synth being played. This synth has a noise oscillator, and the LFO has sample and hold and sine wave settings. It has an external audio input so you can put other audio through the synths filter.

This synth is in full working condition but does have a couple of minor problems which are, the lowest E key works but may need the contact cleaning as you need to press it hard for it to sound but it does work and the ADSR switch which switches the envelope from off auto or gated is snapped but still functions correctly. Appart from that it is spot on and you can come try it out if you live near by. Also it does have the odd scratch or mark on the side panels and front panel but overall it looks great.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Octave ‘The Kitten’ Vintage Analogue Synthesizer.

I’ve owned this since about 2001, bought from Jarberry when they still sold 2nd hand gear. They serviced and tuned it before it was sent to me.

I haven’t used it in a few years now, so it’s time for it to move on.

I’ve checked it and it appears to be working fine, except for the noise level slider doesn’t seem to be adding any noise. It could probably do with another service, or at the very least a clean as one or two pots are slightly crackly. There are a couple of slider caps missing, they were missing when I got it and it doesn’t affect useage.
Cosmetic condition is pretty good. There is a light scratch on the front panel and the rubber surrounds on the wooden end cheeks are marked, but that’s what they’re there for.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

kitten “I’ve finally decided to sell the other of my Octave Kittens. This is going to be very difficult to me to part with as it is a totally unique synth with all sorts of possibilities. This is the more versatile of the 2 with several modifications including a patchable delay (pictured). The synth does recieve control voltage. The condition is amazing for it’s age. There are a couple of very minor surface scratches. The synth is 100% working fully functional & I’ve had no problems with it whatsoever. There is no yellowing of the keys no chips no missing knobs/faders. It can be seen working on youtube with a video made by the person I initially bought it off just type Octave kitten it’s the first thing that comes up (the one with the modification). Reason for sale is that I cannot justify keeping it in my current financial situation. I am open to sensible offers. I’ll also include a detailed description of the calibration procedure. The Kitten will be expertly packed & insured for delivery (please see my feedback for the other on I sold for your peace of mind). Alternatively you can pick it up. I am happy to send it worldwide.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
