The magic mix
With its sound palette varying from heavy drum n' bass stabs to angular arpeggiated electro bass lines, whatever your chosen genre, the 2600 is a truly versatile sound creation tool which still takes its place at the heart of today's music.
With a unique combination of semi-modular architecture and fixed preset routing, it gave it the place of being one of the most versatile synths of the 1970's.
A Legend is Back
The Arp 2600 was an iconic sound and Arturia has been faithful in recreating this amazing synthesizer. From the sound of the 3 oscillators to the original 'grey face' filter to the vast modulation routing abilities. You get all this and more.
If you’re new to synthesis, no problem: we’ve included hundreds of excellent presets to get you started.
The Arp 2600 is a workhorse that can deliver everything from clean leads and sequences to crazy sound effects. When you need something with that extra special character the Arp 2600 is the one to go for.
