    Introduction & Overview

    Here we begin with a brief look at the broad aspects and nature of the Arturia ARP2600 V, as well as a bit of history before digging further into this recreation of a synthesizer that made its mark on so many great pieces of work.

  • image description 6:58

    User Interface & Basic Operation

    In this video, we take a look at the main interface and general layout of the ARP2600 V so that you have a good idea of its semi-modular workflow, as we get more into the specifics moving forward.

  • image description 8:59

    Basic Routing & The Oscillators

    At the start of any subtractive synthesizer is the oscillator. The ARP2600 V uses a semi-modular interface with three voltage controlled oscillators or VCOs, and they provide an excellent sounding source wave to shape, mold, and utilize later in the signal flow.

    The Filter (VCF)

    Filters are a mainstay in practically any synthesizer, and the ARP2600 V is expanded from its hardware counterpart to offer a multimode filter to be used in shaping frequencies. In this video, we go through this filter.

    The Amplifier & Voltage Processors

    In order to output a sound, the signal must go through an amplifier module. This concept is common, but a bit of the modular routing can add another step when it comes to mixing audio, which we proceed to see in the Voltage Processors module.

    Envelopes & LFOs

    Common modulation of all sorts of parameters can be done with envelopes and low frequency oscillators. Here we go through how these tools can be put to use.

    Additional Programming Cabinet Modules

    The ARP2600 V puts to use many modules that can alter, generate, or supplement a signal in various ways, such as the noise generator, sample & hold, electro switch, ring modulator, and tracking generator. Here, we get a closer look at these modules.

  • image description 6:53

    The Keyboard Interface

    How an instrument responds to keyboard input is a crucial part of any performance, recording, or even programming. In the virtual keyboard, we have many options for things like portamento and MIDI controls to be set and implemented plus ways to link MIDI inputs to parameters.

    The ARP Sequencer Pt. 1

    To get the most classic sound characteristic of modular and semi-modular synths, a proper sequencer is always a must. The ARP2600 V gives us a period accurate recreation the ARP2600 sequencer to create rhythmic and driving patterns of our sounds in the styles of the past.

  • image description 8:44

    The ARP Sequencer Pt. 2

    Here we continue through the ARP2600 V's powerful arpeggiator to craft classic rhythmic sounds from the instrument.

  • image description 3:25

    The Effects Modules

    At the end of a signal path, or anywhere in the chain, effects modules can add interesting characteristics to a sound with delay, reverb, and chorus. Here, we see these modules in action.

  • image description 7:01

    Preset Management & the Browser

    Now take a closer look through the ARP2600 V's browser and its wide selection of factory presets, as well as how to add your own presets and make them easily accessible for future use.

    ARP2600 V Sound Design Techniques

    Now that you have a strong technical grasp on all of the features of the ARP2600 V, explore some creative applications to achieve classic synth sounds through semi-modular synthesis.

  • image description 7:24

    Bass Sound Design

    A bass is a great way to get a feel for the ARP2600 V's filters by shaping the frequencies across the spectrum to make a deep and powerful sound. With the ARP2600 V, Arturia gives you the analog sonic firepower in a virtual package, opening up the opportunity for some excellent basses!

  • image description 11:01

    Lead Sound Design

    Analog and properly modeled virtual analog synths can make very desirable lead sounds, and the ARP2600 V definitely captures the strength of its hardware counterpart. See how to make a cool oscillator sync lead, and further experiment to make a very playable sound for driving melodies.

  • image description 10:24

    Pad Sound Design

    Here we work through making a lovely pad that evolves by using different sources of modulation in the ARP2600 V, such as envelopes, the sequencer, and more.

  • image description 5:46

    Review & Conclusion

    Now that you know the technical aspects of the ARP2600 V and have creatively implemented that knowledge with some exploration of sound design, get a quick recap and a few parting thoughts to see you on your way to making fantastic sounds with this awesome instrument!

I started playing around with music at a young age with garage sale keyboards or whatever else I could get my hands on. My older brothers were very much into bands and guitars, and so I was always around some of the culture. I played alto sax throughout school in the concert, marching, and jazz bands. Browsing through our home computer in middle school, I started playing with music trackers and sequencers that my brothers had installed. From there I found FL Studio, which the demo version we had at that time was still called FruityLoops. It proved to be an excellent passtime for a kid like myself where I could mess around and make some silly little tunes. Through high school and college, I became very well versed in the world of computer audio and all the things that can be done with synthesizers and digital recording. With the growing understanding came a growing excitement for the endless possibilities that I could achieve in music, sound design, and recording. So I kept learning and searching further, where I kept finding that there was always more to learn! 
 
I was, and continue to be, captivated by every step of music production, be it creative or technical in nature. I’ve been fortunate to work under many kinds of production circumstances, whether in a professional studio space such as Mudcat Studios in Utah or getting a professional sound out of various home studios that I’ve used for recording instruments and live bands. I’ve also been able to work on my fair share of electronic music, either solo or with other producers in person or online for collaborations. And now with Groove3, I take great pride in sharing the knowledge and experience that I’ve been so thrilled to accumulate through my diverse journey through music and production. As that journey continues and I continue to grow myself, I am truly thankful that I am lucky enough to help those around me to improve and follow their own passions for music!
