A Legend is Back
The Arp 2600 was an iconic sound and Arturia has been faithful in recreating this amazing synthesizer. From the sound of the 3 oscillators to the original 'grey face' filter to the vast modulation routing abilities. You get all this and more.
Going beyond and back
While the original instrument was a wonder to use, we always find ways to innovate and improve.
Four revolutionary modulation generators add sonic flexibility and the step sequencer will allow you to animate your sounds. The multimode filter and output audio effects add new possibilities not found in the original....and did we mention it is fully polyphonic?
Virtuality works magic giving the myth a new reality all these years after; and this power brillantly made tenfold is another testimony that ARP2600 reputation never was usurped. Cheer up Arturia!Wally Badarou

I like to work fast. If you have to spend time working out how to get what you want from a synth, you lose that important energy you need when you're creation a new song. The ARP 2600 V is, of course, a classic synth with a classic layout. Everything's there in front of you. It's one of those few synths that will do almost anything I want it to.Mason

I love the Arturia ARP 2600 V because it not only sounds great, but I can instantly recall complex patches anywhere in the world.Chad Hugo

A little groove sample track using 8 ARP2600 V. All the drums sounds have been programmed with the ARP2600 V.
A big three oscillators lead sound with auto pan but without additional effects + hi hat rhythm with the ARP2600 V spring reverb.
A square wave double oscillator bass sound showing all the power of the notch filter. (Listen to the notch frequency parameter sweep)
Matt LUPO, one of our sound designers, has made a short song with 9 instances of the ARP2600 V...
