    Semi-Modular Analog Synthesizer with 3 VCOs and Multi-Mode VCF in 8U Rack-Mount Format
    2600

    The 1970s was a time when synthesizers were truly coming into their own as more and more musicians were adopting the instrument and making music that no one had ever heard before. Earlier synthesizers were massive and sophisticated devices that cost thousands of dollars but in 1971, Alan R. Pearlman and Dennis Colin sought to create a more portable version of their massive ARP 2500 modular synth which they could market more towards musicians. Out of this concept came the ARP 2600 semi-modular synthesizer which became an instant hit and was quickly adopted by lots of renowned musicians including Edgar Winter, Pete Townshend, Herbie Hancock and Jean-Michel Jarre to name a few.

    An ultra-affordable and even more feature-packed homage to that iconic synthesizer comes in the form of the Behringer 2600. Conjure up the virtually any sound imaginable with incredible finesse and ease. The pure analog signal path is based on the authentic ARP 2600 circuitry from the 70s with matched transistors and JFETs. Owning a 2600 is like having your piece of history enabling you to re-create timeless classics or forge your own musical path.

    True to the Original

    Great care has been taken in engineering the 2600, including the true-to-the-original analog circuitry, semi-modular architecture and triple VCO designs that come together to recreate classic tones that are evocative of classic electronic music. This highly focused attention to detail is what gives the 2600 its ultra-flexible sound shaping capability. It gives you the ability to cover a lot of amazing tones from super-fat bass, tasty leads – all the way to full on dreamy ambience from the far reaches of your imagination.

    Big, Fat Tones

    The synthesizer tracks laid down in the 1970s and 80s in progressive rock, wave and synth-pop have become classics and have inspired many other artists. The 2600 lets you recreate all that magic – or design some incredible and original sounds that will make you a legend in your own right!
