The all-time classic ARP 2600 was a synthesizer that was an immediate hit with musicians and sound designers when it was released in 1971. Most famously, it's the very synth that Ben Burt used to give R2D2 his unmistakeable voice.
Semi-modular in nature and with many handy features like voltage modifiers, lag control, ring modulation, a comprehensive noise generator, sample & hold, and 3 independent oscillators, it comes equipped with more features than you'll find in many of today's analog synthesizers.
Thanks to the Alan R. Pearlman Foundation and the non-profit studio The Record Co. I was able to access an original, mint condition ARP 2600 that is beautifully maintained and lock myself in a studio with it to capture nearly 7 hours worth of raw sound design material.
Putting the 2600's immense sound design potential to use, I created this library to help you give robots a voice, create otherworldly ambiances, score computers with the obligatory "bleep bloops", and craft larger than life weapons with a distinct retro SciFi flair.
