A Brief History of the Iconic 70’s Classic  –  The ARP 2600

The ARP 2600 was the second product of ARP Instruments. It was released in 1970, and continued until the manufacturer ceased operations in 1981. Its design combined modularity (for studio flexibility, and for instructional use) and integration (for realtime performance).

Functionally, the ARP 2600 was completely modular: any signal output could be routed to any signal input, with a patch cord. Operationally, the ARP 2600 was integrated, using internally-wired default signal paths that made it possible to create a wide range of keyboard patches by simply opening up slide attenuators, as though sitting in front of a mixing console.

The ARP 2600 earned an early reputation for stability, and for flexibility exceeding that of its competitor the Minimoog. Used 2600’s in good condition command premium prices on eBay today and businesses around the country can make a living reconditioning, rebuilding, and customizing 30-year-old units.

Its modular design, and the popularity of its Owner’s Manual, made the ARP 2600 a widely used teaching instrument in many schools and music conservatories around the country and internationally.

Reinventing a Classic Synth for the Modern Studio

Although creating the most authentic and faithful reproduction of the classic Arp 2600 sound ever heard was a major goal for developers Way Out Ware, this didn’t stop them adding several modern twists to the original design to bring it up to date for modern studio work. Here are some of the many outstanding features of “TimewARP 2600”:

Benchmark Filter Design

The success of any great analog synthesizer emulation relies on accurately modelling the behaviour of the Voltage Controlled Filter module. Not a trivial task, WOW has created a new industry benchmark with its “TimewARP 2600” digital VCF. It must be heard to be believed!

Extensive Patch Manager

There is no limit to the number of patches you can create and save with the “TimewARP 2600”. In addition to comprehensive import and export abilities, WOW also include a sophisticated Patch Manager for sorting your presets any way you want. The “TimewARP 2600” also responds to MIDI bank-select and patch-select commands for total control.

Use As Part Of An Effects Chain

Utilize the signal input/output function to use the “TimewARP 2600” like an elaborate signal effects processor.

Plug in a guitar, microphone or other sound source to provide an additional signal feed to be used in the TimewARP as an oscillator, LFO modulator, control voltage and more. Use the synthesizer as an effect to process the input. Create one-of-a-kind vocoder effects. For example, Pete Townsend used this ability to drive the guitar sound in The Who’s “Who Are You.” and Stevie Wonder used it to create some very interesting Vocal Effects!

Trigger From MIDI Tracks

Running as a track plug-in, the “TimewARP 2600” can also process pre-recorded MIDI tracks. Under MIDI control, the Internal Clock may be synchronized to an incoming MIDI Beat Clock.

Evolving Textural Patches

The “TimewARP 2600” comes loaded with hundreds of great patches right out of the box, and due to the “TimewARP’s” unique sonic environment, you can create “evolving textural patches”.

8 Voice Polyphony

The original ARP 2600 was a monophonic instrument. But those days are over. Sure you can play the “TimewARP 2600” in monophonic mode if you really want to, but you’ll have far more fun playing all of those classic patches with multiple voices for the first time!

  • "TimewARP 2600 comes closer to sounding like the real thing than any other software synth emulator out there! The three VCO's sound great, the filter is excellent with realistic self-oscillating resonance and almost no glitchy stair-stepping during slow gradual filter sweeps. WOW's TimewARP 2600 is a steal!"
