New ARP Synthesizer Coming Jan 10, 2020

Ahead of the 2020 NAMM Show, Korg shared this teaser video for a new ARP synthesizer.

Is it a rerelease of the classic ARP 2600? Synth pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre recently said Korg has a new ARP 2600 in the works.

Check out the video and share your thoughts in the comments!

  1. Wonder if this the 2600 Jarre was talking about? I need another monosynth like I need a hole in my head .. but am still really interested.

  2. After the MS-20 and the Odyssey, this time I will wait for the Behringer one, and THEN decide which one to buy.
    For now Behringer always won (price, features, etc.)

    1. i find the k-2 clone as a total fail, even the mini sounds better which i sold because it was nowhere near the original ms-20… regarding the odysseys i think both korg and behri did a good job and noone can say which one is better, i personally prefer the module of korg due to its compact size.

      1. Are you serious? 1 missing midi port, no effects and no build-in sequencer…and you can still not say which one is better?

    1. I suspect you’re kind of kidding, but I know a Chroma owner, and I can confidently say that nobody would ever clone that thing. It sounds great and has innovative features, but programming that thing is an utter nightmare. (The guy I know who has it, and loves it, just sprung for the crazy $$$ aftermarket programmer for it!).

  3. a 2500 would be dream come true and an instabuy almost regardless of cost (because of pure love) – not sure about 2600 though

  4. Yeah 2600 for sure .. no thanks. An old original one would be cool though as a studio decoration 🙂 Am anxious though to see their other new synth.

  5. Hopefully this puts the Behringer sniffers back in their height chairs with a bib and mashed baby food.

  6. Price now being quoted for the new Korg ARP 2600 is 3,200 UK Pounds – which puts it into about $6,000 AUD for me here in Oz. That is way beyond unaffordable and almost reaching the price I’ve seen of some originals on eBay. I get the impression it will be a limited run too. So… I wait for Behringer to do something for the masses.

  7. Limited edition. Basically a perfect copy plus arpeggiator, sequencer, MIDI, USB MIDI, balanced outputs. Comes with a really good flight case.

    $3799. Good value for what you get.
