"My nice ARP 2600, I'm really, really happy. I bought it in L.A. and it was really difficult getting it here, with almost going to prison, but it worked. It works with all the filters and everything work really well. To get a sequence out of it I have meshed it up with an MFB Urzerg."more
During this interview from RA the interviewer asks:"What about the ARP2600? Marc Houle:"When I got it, it didn't really work at all. You'd put some knobs up, and it'd just start squelching. But after getting it repaired a few times and slowly figuring it out better, I started to get some nice sounds out of it. It's a nice synth, and it's one of the most important synths in music next to the Minimoog I think. " And there is a picture showing his ARP2600more
Ozzy states in his [autobiography](https://books.google.com/books?id=yNzCgAEkW8cC&pg=PT112&lpg=PT112&dq=ozzy+osbourne+arp+2600&source=bl&ots=KjyasAVD3x&sig=5NGTDNVZ16ITKsOVk31v_Ci21-g&hl=en&sa=X&ei=LJA1VcbcJ8n_yQTsloGoCA&ved=0CFsQ6AEwDQ#v=onepage&q=ozzy%20osbourne%20arp%202600&f=false) that he owns an ARP 2600 Modular Synthesizer.more
During a studio tour with Future Music Magazine, Steve Mac says [@ 03:00] about his ARP 2600: "ARP 2600, another classic synthesizer. I love the ARP 2600. It's got such a big sound and it's one of those things you can just keep plugging away at and get unexpected sounds. It's one of those things where you can get a bit carried away with it and just sit there hours on end. It's also got it's own spring reverb which is a really, really good part of this machine."more
This wonderfully detailed photo from the Ommadawn recordings sessions show all the instruments that Oldfield played on the album (and there are most likely others not shown as well). The labelling is quite obvious, but the 2600 is against the right wall, in front of the tubular bells.more
"Signal path was into the Arp 2600, out of that into a big rack of Surge gear, then a line to the floor so I could use whatever pedals I wanted, then a [TC Fireworks](http://equipboard.com/items/tc-electronic-fireworx-multi-effect-processor) unit, then digital into the Tascam D88." - A.J. Dunning from [*Guitar.com*](http://guitar.com/articles/verve-pipe-beatin-odds).more
In [this interview](http://www.electricity-club.co.uk/html/int_morris.html) with Stephen Morris of Joy Division/New Order, he explains the studio setup going into the recording of Joy Division's album *Closer.* "We had Martin's ARP2600 and the sequencer that goes with it on 'The Eternal,' there's a fuck up in the middle of it and you couldn't drop in, so we left it and it sounds like I've done it but [it] was a machine."more
When the coming out of the one-oscillator Sputink was anounced it was the first time Joe Zawinul ever heard about a synthesizer. In 1971 Roger Powell who was with ARP instruments invited him to try the new ARP 2600. In Joe's own words: "I was knocked out. Arps had patchcords, too, but with a keyboard, and with this keyboard I did some memorable recordings, like ‘Black Market.’ The Arp got some nice sounds. Some very human sounds" - The Wire, September 11, 2007 by Howard Mandel Back in 1975 Joe explained in an interview why he preferred the 2600 monophonic synth to the Minimoog: "I like the Arp because of what I can do with it. I hear the Moog, it's immediately the Moog. With the Arp I can do things that will fool the heck out of you. I can hide between voices, I can do all kinds of things. To me it's a much more natural sound. The variety of colors is greater, too. Woodwind sounds... if you have the right hearing, you can really get it. But it takes time and work..." During the Weather Report era he toured the world with his two 2600s which used extensively on Mysterious Traveller, Tale Spinnin', Black Market and Heavy Weather. “I have my own ‘magic book’ of sounds I’ve created on the 2600. Melody lines from 'Black Market', 'Scarlet Woman', lots of music and sound effects from other albums I’ve done. I tape some nice stuff just playing around. With the 2600, you never have to listen to the same sound twice, if you don’t want to.” - ARP's advertising literaturemore
“There are very few instruments that are so inviting and it’s quite comprehensive; you can pretty much do anything you want. In fact, I did the Inspector Norse EP just through that synth. You can make simple bread and butter sounds really easily, like spaced-out BBC-style sound effects.”more

Mine is orange/black. It sounds darker than the Tonus model, sometimes more imprecise. Depending on your settings it can deliver freaky tones, full basses and wonderful leads though. Audio rate modulations sound more chracterful than on my other synths. The 4072 filter is very special. It can produce great drumsounds and changes its tone as soon as it gets modulated at high rates. Vocal- sounds and "speaking" basses are easy to set up. The reverb tank sounds very "Industrial".
