Post The CATS Meow
OK. I give up.
I'm part of the pit (guitar actually) playing for CATS at a community theatre that opens in a week. Still haven't a clue on how to reproduce the "Keyboard 3 Meow"

It's the decending pitch "meow from outer space" sound that is the signature sound in the Overture (and other songs).

Any help would be appreciated.

see if you have a gong/chinese cymbal effect on your synth pad and then distort it (either slow it down or bend the pitch or both). As far as i know the caterwaul effect was created specifically for the Show aso you wont find it anywhere else, but the cymbal comes pretty darn close.You have to play around with it though as the sound in the Ball is slightly different than the sound in the overture.

other wise you could always try to run the Soundtrack through your computer and single out the sound and add it to a disc for in your keyboards (im sure there are some technoboffs around that know how to do that)

good luck
