Product Description

Way Out Ware has perfected the first software synth version of the classic ARP 2600 analog synthesizer: the new TimewARP 2600.

This is the only ARP 2600 emulation product endorsed by its creator, Alan R. Pearlman.

By developing their own proprietary and optimized virtual analog oscillators and filters, WOW brings the most accurate digital reproduction of the 2600's fat analog sound to your desktop. All of the original control features from the ARP 2600 are there, and because you can now save your carefully programmed patches, the TimewARP 2600 is even better than the real thing!

Wow! It's the '70s All Over Again!
The ARP 2600 synthesizer helped define the music of an era. Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein," The Who's "Who Are You," The Tubes, Jean Michel Jarre, Deep Purple, and on and on. Only 3,000 ARP 2600's were produced between 1970 and 1981, and they've been trading hands among collectors for thousands of dollars ever since.

Benchmark Filter Design
The success of any great analog synthesizer emulation relies on accurately modeling the behavior of the Voltage Controlled Filter module. Not a trivial task, WOW has created a new industry benchmark with its TimewARP 2600 digital VCF. It must be heard to be believed.

Extensive Patch Manager
There is no limit to the number of patches you can create and save with the TimewARP 2600. In addition to comprehensive import and export abilities, we also include a sophisticated Patch Manager for sorting your presets any way you want. The TimewARP 2600 also responds to MIDI bank-select and patch-select commands for total control.

Use As Part Of An Effects Chain
Utilize the signal input/output function on any ProTools I/O bridge to use the TimewARP 2600 like an elaborate signal effects processor.

Plug in a guitar, microphone or other sound source to provide an additional signal feed to be used in the TimewARP as an oscillator, LFO modulator, control voltage and more. Use the synthesizer as an effect to process the input. Create one-of-a-kind vocoder effects. For example, Pete Townsend used this ability to drive the guitar sound in The Who's "Who Are You."

Trigger From MIDI Tracks
Running as a track plug-in, the TimewARP 2600 can also process prerecorded MIDI tracks. Under MIDI control, the Internal Clock may be synchronized to an incoming MIDI Beat Clock.

Evolving Textural Patches
The TimewARP 2600 comes loaded with hundreds of great patches right out of the box, and due to the TimewARP's unique sonic environment, you can create "evolving textural patches."

8 Voice Polyphony
The original ARP 2600 was a monophonic instrument. But those days are over. Sure you can play the TimewARP 2600 in monophonic mode, but you'll have more fun playing all of those classic patches with multiple voices for the first time.

Virtual Patch Cables
The TimewARP 2600 features Virtual Patch Cables to help you construct all of the 2600's distinctive sounds with an intuitive interface that works just like the original. Simply "grab" a cable and plug it in where needed'the TimewARP 2600 will automatically mimic the proper effect in real time.

Forward Into the Past!
Real-Time Performance
The TimewARP 2600 sets a new standard for soft-synth live performance by providing incredibly smooth sounding sliders and controls. Tweak any and every knob on the control surface to hear what is now possible in real-time sound manipulation.

Extensive Velocity and Aftertouch Control
Besides globally assigning any slider, knob or switch to a MIDI controller, you can also extensively fine tune the velocity and/or aftertouch parameters of incoming keyboard events. The control's response curve can be set to respond as 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 TimewARP 2600 sliders, knobs or controls can be assigned to respond to a single MIDI control.

ARP 2600: A Brief History
The ARP 2600 was the second product of ARP Instruments. It was released in 1970, and continued until the manufacturer ceased operations in 1981.
Its design combined modularity (for studio flexibility, and for instructional use) and integration (for realtime performance). Functionally, the ARP 2600 was completely modular: any signal output could be routed to any signal input, with a patch cord. Operationally, the ARP 2600 was integrated, using internally-wired default signal paths that made it possible to create a wide range of keyboard patches by simply opening up slide attenuators, as though sitting in front of a mixing console.

The ARP 2600 earned an early reputation for stability, and for flexibility exceeding that of its competitor the Minimoog. Used 2600's in good condition command premium prices on eBay today and businesses around the country can make a living reconditioning, rebuilding, and customizing 30-year-old units.

Among rock musicians, the ARP 2600 was used by Stevie Wonder, Pete Townsend, Joe Zawinul, Edgar Winter, Paul Bley, Roger Powell, Jean-Michel Jarre, Mike Oldfield, Herbie Hancock, and many, many others.

Its modular design, and the popularity of its Owner's Manual, made the ARP 2600 a widely used teaching instrument in many schools and music conservatories around the country and internationally.
