Much in demand synth gets virtual-a-lized 29/10/04
The Arturia 2600v with Blue Meany colour scheme
The Arp 2600 is one of the top semi-modular synths ever produced and has been in the arsenal of most of the finest synthesists since it’s release in 1972. It’s second hand pricing in recent years has made it very difficult to get hold of. But now Arturia have used their TAE technology to make a virtual version of this classic.
Capable of creating amazing sounds thanks to the exclusive ARP technologies, it can be operatedwith or without patch cords since all of the functions are internally wired and can be controlled via sliders and switches.
With the ARP2600 V, Arturia brings this powerful semi-modular synthesizer back to life. Offering all the features of the original version, Arturia has added innovative functions such as MIDIcontrol, polyphony, and – hidden behind the speaker panels - revolutionary tracking generators and additional effects.
The ARP2600 V is loaded with more than 400 presets made by a selection of top musicians. Fully compatible with the main protocols and systems in the industry, it can be used as stand-alone software or as a virtual instrument..
The ARP2600 V is based on a set of algorithms created by Arturia’s sound engineers and
gathered under the name TAE. TAE stands for True Analog Emulation. It brings a superior
quality of sound when reproducing analogue circuits. In particular, TAE avoids any sort of
aliasing; it also emulates the typical instability of hardware oscillators and brings the warm sound of the vintage synths.
The 2600V will ship with several different skins, and is shown here in it's original Blue Meany colouring (only 100 were ever made_
