Created in the early '70s by Alan R. Pearlman (his initials is where the name ARP comes from) with David Friend and Lewis G. Pollock, the ARP 2600 is considered by many to be the holy grail of analog synthesizers. Heard on countless records (Stevie Wonder, Genesis, The Who, Jean Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode to name a few), this semi-modular analog monster was even used to create the voice of R2-D2 in Star Wars. And now you too can use the ARP's synthesis power directly in your DAW. But let's be honest, this powerhouse synth has quite a steep learning curve. That's why we asked synthesis master Rishabh Rajan to create this in-depth course and demystify this super deep instrument.

Rishabh begins the course with an overview of various modules and explains the normalled routing of the synth. Then, he focuses on the oscillator section, revealing the differences between VCO 1, 2 and 3 and explaining how oscillator sync works. The further you dive in the course, the more you discover its infinite sound design possibilities. The Filter, the Envelopes, effects and mixer are all covered in detail and demonstrated with numerous patching examples. You also get a detailed look at the sequencer, the LFO section, the Global section and a lot more.
