The SONiVOX TimewARP 2600 delivers the same sound with twice the flexibility of the highly sought-after, original ARP 2600s. At a fraction of the price of the original analog synthesizer, it features optimized virtual oscillators and filters, bringing the most accurate digital reproduction of the 2600's fat sound to your desktop. All of the original controls are there, and because you can save your carefully programmed patches, the TimewARP 2600 is even better than the real thing.
The fate of any analog-synthesizer emulator depends on the accuracy of the Voltage Controlled Filter module's behavior. The TimewARP 2600's digital VCF must be heard to be believed. And unlike the original ARP 2600, the TimewARP can be played in 8-voice polyphony, greatly expanding your tonal possibilities.
The TimewARP 2600 comes loaded with hundreds of great patches, and due to its unique sonic environment, you can create "evolving textural patches." There is no limit to the number of additional patches you can create and save, and the included Patch Manager helps sort your presets any way you like. The TimewARP 2600 also responds to MIDI bank-select and patch-select commands.
Use the TimewARP2600 as an elaborate signal effects processor on grouped tracks in your DAW. Use the synthesizer as an insert effect on a standard guitar or mic track to create one-of-a-kind vocoder effects. Running as a track plug-in, the TimewARP 2600 can also process pre-recorded MIDI tracks. Under MIDI control, the Internal Clock may be synchronized to an incoming MIDI Beat Clock. The possibilities are endless.
- TimewARP2600 is the only ARP 2600 emulation product to be endorsed by its creator, Alan R. Pearlman.
- Virtual patch cables
- Virtual patch cables help construct distinctive sounds in an intuitive interface that works just like the original.
- Real-Time performance
- Smooth sounding sliders and controls make the TimewARP 2600 great for live performance. Tweak any and every knob in real-time.
- Velocity and aftertouch control
- You can extensively fine tune the velocity and aftertouch parameters of incoming keyboard events, setting the response curve to be linear, exponential, or logarithmic with an option to invert the polarity. You can also set custom range limits for any parameter. And for the sonic maniac, an unlimited number of sliders, knobs or controls can be assigned to a single MIDI control.
