Lovely example of pure analog synthesis. Famous examples of its signature sounds are abundant.
Designed keyboard setup for Rick Wakeman of YES. Toured with YES as off-stage fill-in keyboardist. Later, Casey taught synthesizers in Portland Oregon. Michael Garrison was one of his students, and bought the instrument from him.
Michael Garrison: Electronic musician and performing artist. Met fellow electronic musician Craig Padilla at a performance in Mt Shasta California where the two exchanged notes about performing electronic music live, and became friends. Sadly, Michael passed away much too young. This instrument was then used by Skip Murphy and Craig Padilla in their studio, and can be seen on some YouTube videos.
Skip Murphy: Well, we now have 2 of these ARP 2600s, so it is somewhat redundant. Now is time to sell this one so that somebody else can enjoy it, and add to its lineage. Recently cleaned and calibrated by George Mattson, of Mattson Modular. It is in full working order but missing one slider cap on Sample and Hold Rate.
That doesnt affect performance, and you could get a matching cap online if you like. No keyboard, just the synth. It was most recently used with various analog step sequencers, but any 1 volt per octave keyboard or source will run it. Will throw in some patch cords too, but it plays without any patch cords required, due to the unique normalization design.
Clean and no noticeable flaws, except for the missing slider cap mentioned. Minor scuff marks on the Tolex, as one would expect for an instrument of this vintage. I can't seem to figure out how to correct that in the listing. It has no keyboard and the power supply is built in.
