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.
The TTSH is now available as a kit for 4000 SEK (about US $600), containing PCBs and the powder-coated and screen-printed front panel. This is an advanced DIY project – nothing is pre-built and no electronic components are included. Builders will have to source their own parts, which is detailed at the project site. A case is also available.
Here’s a demo of a TTSH prototype in action:
Here are audio demos:
- 3 VCOs (Model 4027-1):
- VCO 1: saw / sqr
- VCO 2: saw / tri / pulse / sine
- VCO 3: saw / pulse
- Noise Gen: Continually variable from LF to pink to white.
- LFO – Patchable with tons of modulation sources and shapes, Sample and Hold.
- Filter – Model 4012 VCF (1970-76). 24db lowpass, self-oscillating.
- VCA – Linear or Exponential control. Envelope Follower.
- Envelope Generators –
- Env 1: ADSR
- Env 2: AR
- Ring Modulator
- Spring Reverb (optional choice of reverb tank)
- CV/Gate/Trigger inputs (MIDI optional)
- 2 Speakers which may be switched off to save power.
- 3.5mm jacks so you can easily interface with a Eurorack system.
