PURPOSE: To demonstrate operation of an analog synthesizer.
DESCRIPTION: The ARP 2600 is a top-quality analog synthesizer; unfortunately analog synthesizers are now obsolete. However, this device can be used to create a large number of sounds and effects. An instruction manual containing patch charts for a large number of sounds is available with the instrument. This instrument is complex, and difficult to operate without patch charts or detailed knowledge of operation of such instruments.
SUGGESTIONS: PRACTICE if you intend to operate this instrument.
REFERENCES: (PIRA unavailable.)
EQUIPMENT: ARP 2600 analog musical synthesizer with manual, patch charts amplifier and loudspeaker.
SETUP TIME: 10 min.
