THIS A GREAT, ORIGINAL SOUNDING SYNTH- BIG SOUNDS IN A SMALL PACKAGE- IF YOU WANT IT TO SOUND WIERDER & FATTER TRY CREATING A FEEDBACK LOOP BY CONNECTING ONE OFTHE OUTPUTS TO THE EXT IN- WORKS WELL W/ A MIMIMOOG AS WELL

ITS FUNNY YOU'D THINK THE MAJOR SYNTH COMPANIES WOULD SMARTEN UP AND MAKE ORIGINAL SOUNDING INEXPENSIVE ANALOGS AGAIN LIKE THE AXXE, MINI ETC AND RACK IN THE $$$ VIRTUAL ANALOG IS CRAP AND A WASTE OF TIME FOR ALL INVOLVED

To Axxebeginner and anyone else who may be having probs with this little guy, make sure the VCA gain (under the Voltage Controlled Amplifier section) is between the lowest and second lowest marks (close to the bottom) and that the ADSR slider just right of it is all the way up.

The ADSR envelope should now properly modulate the volume when you play the keys. Moving the gain too high causes the synth to play sound continually.

Just keep in mind that the outs on these are really quiet(at least on my mark I), and may need a high gain input on your mixer to get a reasonable volume out of it (I believe it was made this way so it would work with the guitar amps of the time, which had high gain inputs due to the low output of guitar pickups).

Anyways, a great little synth, and you can even use it to process other instruments (my band's guitarist uses it to get a really nice tremolo effect).

I own the black and gold Mark I Axxe. And this is one interesting synth. Courious, though, this is the first analog synth I have owned wheer the minute you move the sliders. The ossiclators start running up and down on their own without pressing a single key. Mind you I have never figured this out, but I don't seem to care. I wind up with some odd sounds just by controlling the sliders. I could get it fixed but that might kill the fun of the oscilators going on their own. This is my second ARP synth. The other is an Omni Mark 1. Which is a synth string machine. Besides a warped keyboard and 2 broken sliders this is still a cool synth, and would deffenitly never ever sell it. Even with all it,s flaws I still prefer this to the mark 2.

I own now six synths, the ARP is the sentimental of the crew. You can't argue that. One of the warmest filters, even set to the highest octive. Note to the amatures, if you are not familiar with true analogue don't expect miracles the second you plug it in..very tempermental machine. However, if you know you synthesis theory, go to town. Start with low octives to get aquainted with the bass. Saw wave is the best. The magic begins on mid octive, saw wave, with a bit of square LFO. The vibe on this setting is somewhat mid-seventies 8mm nature film. If you go CV to MIDI, MAKE SURE YOU CONNECTIONS ARE NOT ROTTED. If such is the case, get them replaced, a respectable shop should only charge you about 40USD for this type of work..Ultimate Mood machine, just wish it were Poly.
