The Two Thousand Six Hundred, or TTSH for short, is a new DIY synth project, inspired by the classic ARP 2600 semi-modular analog synthesizer.

A case is also available.

If Hitchcock Hired Raymond Scott To Score A Dream Sequence….

Saturday Synth Porn: If Alfred Hitchcock hired Raymond Scott to score a dream sequence…..it might sound something like this.

In this video, Kip Kubin demonstrates patching his ARP 2600 synthesizer.

ARP 2600 Patch Tutorial

Saturday Synth Porn: Here’s a loving look at the ARP 2600 synthesizer and a quick demo of creating a new patch, via Kip Kubin.

Here’s what he has to say about the video:

I wanted to make a “thank you” patch for the creators of the ARP2600 Alan Pearlman and Dennis Colin . The idea was simple, just use the ARP and try to create a new tone and Rhythm not typical of a standard sequence from the clocked output of the S/H generator.

I did cheat and use TipTop Audio stackable patch cables.

I hope they like the patch.
