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.
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.
Reader Eric Carl let us know about a couple of cool vintage synth prints that he’s designed, for the ARP 2600 and EMS Synthi AKS.

He describes them as “A lovely gift for the synthesizer fetishist in all of us.”
Source visited Portishead’s Adrian Utley in his home studio to get his reactions to the Arturia MiniBrute analog synth. While there, they also captured this tour of Utley’s studio and demos of his enviable collection of vintage synthesizers.
The timbre pack features samples from a Dave Smith Instruments Tetra and an ARP Odyssey. The unofficial pack was created using Tim Webb’s Animoog timbre hack.
This video takes a look at the classic ARP Odyssey keyboard synthesizer, from 1972. Three versions were made, Mk I, II & III, between 72 & 81.
