Don't see 2600's every day.

Pity about the CEM3320 filter tho.

The original filter would have been fantastic.
I had a grey face a few years ago.
Amazing synth.

I have a few unencapsulated OTA ARP filter modules in the spares drawer, I removed them from scrap Omni's over the years. Also have an Axxe with no keyboard, might turn it into a desktop module one day....

Still, on the flip side, people make re-issues of the filter module, so, not all is lost for the restorer who has a bit of dedication.

you know we had one of those arp 2600 at festival studios
and a (rhodes and a clavinet) and in the ten years i was there they did not get used once !

everybody was too busy with their shiny new dx7/tx7 and casio cz and akai samplers that had onboard midi !
and now that 80s cheesy stuff is worth a fortune today (not !)

we also had 10 neumann km 86 mics that nobody liked the look of and so they never got used

i went back one day after i left and thought i would try those km 86s mics on a session
the damn arp2600 was gone so was the 10 neumann km 86 mics and one of the u 47 long body mics ,
nobody had even noticed !

its funny how when you work somewhere you take you take mental ownership of the things in the building !

"oh we have one of those !"

25 years later and i still see a arp 2600 and wonder if it is the one of mine that got stolen !

Festival sold the 2600 to me when we were there doing an album with Jimmy Barnes....

ha !
i wonder who it was that did that sale !
when i reported it missing it was the first they knew of it .. and i mean that seriously


did you get those wierd neumanns as well :)

it WAS festival policy not to sell anything in the studio .. certain employees took it that matter to the private test an more then a few occasions

was that the don gehman record...?

That was the Don Gehman record... The studio charged me $900.00 for the synth (and a year or two later I sold Festival the Studer A820 2" machine). We never bought any mics though...

ahh if it was that record then i understand what happened and who was the culprit , in fact i always knew it happened then
i was still around ..
just that i would have had to call people out in public to find out for sure

the guy is dead now so it doesnt matter really - never did actually but know i know ...

so i know for sure who got the mics as well now ...

tom has the rest of the stuff so they probably went to a better home me thinks :)
still got the arp ..?

Hi there,

Looks as though somebody has put a bid in !

Whenever I think of an ARP 2600...I think of Joe Zawinul's
Black Market..that sound is shit hot !

Also Edgar Winters Frankenstein would have to be the number
ONE 2600 solo out there.


Must...stop...buyers ...lust !

(and stick with my Timewarp 2600)

Cheers

I have always wanted a 2600 I have managed to own all the greats over the years but the 2600 always missed grabbing one.

I do like the TimeWarp 2600 it is close...The Arturia one isnt close at all.

As much as I like ARP2600's, I like my Odyssey III more... But then I prefer my Multimoog to a Minimoog as well. Go figure.

Speaking of MkIII Ody's, was crusin eBay tonight on my iPod touch and saw this, went to get the laptop so I could read it properly and buy it, and in the 5 minutes it took to get our shitty internet router to switch to the lappy properly it was gone, someone got the bargain of the year here. I hate you eBay...

It was a buy it now, kinda pissed I didn't buy it the second I saw it but whatever. Just makes me want to get my Mk1 working, which I didn't get for $100 by the way :)
