Synthesizer cakes, take 2

Submitted by on May 17, 2010 – 2:46 pm 4 Comments

Since it’s SynthGear’s birthday, I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate with some cake, and revisit one of my favorite subjects, synth cake!

Around a year ago, one of our first articles was on some delicious-looking synth cakes, and we’ve dug up a whole ton more. Enjoy, some of these are truly awesome.

This first one is just a generic synth:

A fantastic  DMX Drum machine (with MIDI!):

A beautiful Nord Lead:

Another random non-descript synth:

Although not a synth, still very cool – a Frost (haha) Wave Funk-A-Duck:

A delicious-looking Moog Modular:

Some sort of MPC-type device:

Whoohoo, an OB-Xa !

Who hasn’t stayed up at night, wishing the could afford a brand new KOLG?

Another MPC, looks like an MPC-60:

One of my favorite synths of all time, a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5:

This is really cool, a Roland SH-7 plus stompboxes cake decoration:

Roland TB-303 acid box:

Another shot of the 303:

A fantastic-looking Yamaha-type keytar:

No synth cake collection can be without the granddaddy of synths, the MiniMoog:

I’m sure this cake made Derek a very happy boy:

BOOM..tsss.   Some Roland TR-808 cake action:

This Roland SH-101 makes my mouth water:

another great SH-101:

A Korg MicroControl:



I’m not sure what this is, but it’s all lit up, and looks great:

And last but not least, a Moog Voyager:

All this makes me want my own synth cake, I just wish someone would take the hint 😉
