First Wutierson TTSH unit, ARP2600 clone. Designed the remake of the original cabinet tolex to suit the synth because the original ARP2600 is a bit bigger.
This is the first burning test of the first finished unit. After a few calibrations the units can show their genuine sound, the spirit of the ARP2600 grey face is here! Very happy to see that this clone can do the ARP2600 job very well. ,
No external sound processing, the sound is just what comes from the synth. The reverb process is from the built-in spring reverb system.
Sorry for some hard clipping of the sound card, specially at the begining of the video, the 2600 have a lot of dynamic range and take a suprise when Ernesto Romeo did the first patch so I try during the recording with one hand stay filming and with the other adjusting the input fader of the mixer, to avoid hard clipping.
TTSH – ARP 2600 Clone Time Lapse Build. Track includs only sound from the finished TTSH, some additinal delay and eq :).
Martin Widmann documents his build of the ARP 2600 clone, the Two Thousand Six Hundred (TTSH) synthesizer. TTSH is based on the classic ARP 2600. It’s one of the nicest DIY projects and a a very complex build. The TTSH is available as a kit containing PCBs and front panel. Nothing is pre-built and no components are included, so you have to source your own parts.
The video is a time-lapse video, 36,852 pictures, taken every 5 seconds. The full build is shown, including: ttsh, midi interface, case, calibration & bug fixing.
The soundtrack was made with only the finished TTSH.
DearbornJohn captures a live performance, featuring the classic ARP 2600 analog synthesizer, sounds of Lake Michigan and a variety of other synths:
Two young Lovers strolling on a desolate Lake Michigan beach are taken in by the beauty of the land and the heat of the moment. The rest is history;) In memory of Mom and Dad
Actual sounds of Lake Michigan ( synthetic bird sounds, ARP 2600 )
The first picture was taken at Ludington State Park and the second picture was taken at Sleeping Bear Dunes both locations in Michigan.
A Big THANK YOU to the other Chris & Minta
All levels mixed Live
The ARP 1601 sequencer controls VCO pitch
The Doepfer Dark Time modulates the ARP’s filter
The Doepfer Dark Energy provides some LFO action.
All sounds are live, unprocessed and from the ARP only.

Testing the second prototype of the Two Thousand Six Hundred, an ARP 2600 clone. This is a DIY kit to be released in September.

Welcome to the site of the Two Thousand Six Hundred project, or TTSH for short. The TTSH is the attempt to replicate an old classic semi-modular synthesizer. It will be available as a kit containing PCBs and front panel (Nothing is pre-built). The goal is to release it this fall, September preliminary.
I’ve put up an interest list, and you can find it here. If you don’t want to miss this opportunity, make sure you’re on it. As it’ll be where the information goes once this is live. From now on this will be the main portal for communicating changes in the project. But if you’d still like to know more and follow the evolution of the project, you can read this thread over at Muffwiggler. The project is currently in prototyping stage, where one prototype has been received and built. Errors on the prototype has been fixed, and the second prototype board is being laid out at this moment.
Here’s the Medic Modules EKG 8-step sequencer paired with 3 classic synthesizers: the RSF Kobol, the SCI Pro One, and the ARP 2600.
The EKG is a very unique step sequencer with some unusual features.
Each step also has a unique Function control. Each step can be turned off, skipped, repeated or set as a reset point.
Modes; Off (rest), x1, x2, x3, x4, Skip, Reverse, Rest
The (ultra) rare ARP 2600 Blue Meanie/Blue Marvin is under control of S&H module: EGs are fired from S&H Clock; VCO1, VCO 2 and VCF are S&H modulated. Audio signal goes straight into 2600’s spring reverb. A copy of the VCA out signal (dry) is hard switched left/right with Electronic Switch. A great synthesizer, pretty different in sound from the standard 2600 B/W and B/O.
The three square waves from (ultra rare) ARP 2600 Blue Meanie. Keyboard has a long log portamento curve. As usual, (spring) reverb from synthesizer, no external effects.
Featuring Hammond XK3-c, Leslie 3300, Moog Voyager, Arp 2600, D6 Clavinet, Mellotron Mk. VI
Short, first take improv with Arp2600, Moog Voyager and Mellotron Mk. VI. Recorded in Ableton Live 9. Film edited in Sony Vegas Movie Studio 11.
