Arppe2600va - Modular monosynth
Based on ARP's legendary semi-modular analog monosynth! This amazing softsynth sounds very close to the original ARP 2600.

Like the original, it's a monosynth (no polyphony). But, also like the original, it has a multitude of Frequency Modulation options which enable it to create some truly awesome sound effects. PWM, Sample & Hold, virtual Spring Reverb, Ring Modulation, and a dedicated Noise Generator are all there! Also, there are some things even the original Arp 2600 didn't have, like Oscillator Sync and Filter Color (to adjust between LowPass and HiPass filter types). Most important of all, beginning with version 2.0 the Arppe2600va is now completely patchable via a cleverly designed Mod Matrix! You can have up to 12 patch routings with a very user-friendly (and visible!) drop-down menu interface, instead of messy virtual patch cables cluttering up the screen. All controls are mapped to MIDI CC#'s, and you can override the default settings by using the MIDI Learn feature.

Using this to great effect. 4 stars seems low.

My only issue so far is that the parameters don't respond to automation clips in FL Studio 10. I've tried many different ways to set up automation clips and none of them work. Other than that, it has amazing sound and in many ways sounds better than the Arturia version, but I'm still very frustrated with this automation thing.

Wow! This is truly amazing! I've been looking literally everywhere across the web to find something like this! I'm new to this kind of stuff, but I'm sure that when I figure out how everything works, this will be awesome!

This is brilliant! But does anyone know how to record the sounds and save to a .wav file or the like as per MiniMogueVA?

When you make your whole song then go to file and extract then click .wav and start it, you will get your file in .wav file

Very, very cool synth, just the things could be more realistic (of the 2600), there's a lot of extra things, but cool, far one of the bests emulators !

Fantastic Synth! Runs as VST or Standalone. Interface and Sounds are STELLAR! Nice Job! I use Arturia (all of them) but I also use this in mixes. Sounds a little different, and that is a good thing! 100% reccomend this Synth!

This was the first VST I discovered after I had sold all of my analog gear ten years prior, so I am a bit attached. It takes a lot of work. It can sound really cool. It looks awesome on your monitor to people who know nothing of synths(so do Krakli YAVA,RMP2, and K700). It takes some CPU because latency can be an issue. I probably wouldn't buy the Arturia because I didn't like their JP8 and I really don't like ARP synths that well(used to own an Odyssey(try Electrostudio ODsay if u want a good freebee)), but I love it for what it is.

I've gotta arp2600 from arturia. Interface of Arppe2600va is infantil. Better is arturia's ARP. It has got sequencer.

One of the best things about this synth is that it helps you learn about sound generation basics; it gives a big control possibility and the sound is astonishing. The only drawback till now is that I couldn't sync the repeater and the sample+hold modules to the hosts clock in order to have tempo based effects.

Like a real 2600 without the mini-cables.Low CPU, great modular sound, runs perfectly with the other ARP Odyssey reproductions. Cool stuff ! Thanx.

Considering this is free, it manages to capture brilliantly that typical ARP 2600 'agressive grind' sound, I use this all the time for rythmic bass sequnces and it really stands out!

Been using this one for years. The best 2600 emulator ever, in my opinion.

Is really good, but i still found the arturia 2600v emulation much better.. (this one consume less cpu; worth donwnload)
