Amateur guide to the ARP 2600 contains swearing and impatience

Published on Oct 16, 2017 Ian o'Brien

"This is part one of a DIY series about the amazing musical possibilities within the ARP 2600 synthesizer.

There's a lot of bullshit, nonsense and outright rubbish about the ARP2600 on YouTube. Fallacies, mojo and outright falsehoods, to the left right and center.

I want to show what it really is, starting here with just the synth itself, no extras. The series will not focus on technical explanations. Only one goal - how to get a good sound out of it?

Forget the waffle.....The ARP2600 is *not* a science project or a weird curiosity it's a musical instrument .
I think the designers didn't properly understood this at the time.

I don't give an arse about the specs and details, this is about sound and how to make music x"

Dave Smith Instruments In The Spotlight With the OB-6 and Sunshine Jones

You'll find the full interview at Dave Smith Instruments here.

"Sunshine Jones is an electronic musician from San Francisco, California. He is a production machine that seems to be in constant motion. Hand made releases, full fledged vinyl releases, customized eurorack modules, hand built synthesizers, tutorial videos, consultations with manufacturers, beta testing, and non-stop encouragement for people who are curious about getting their heads together about playing live electronic music.

From 1991 – 2005 he was one half of Dubtribe Sound System. While Dubtribe continues to perform periodically at festivals and special engagements, Sunshine travels the world solo these days playing 100% live improvisational electronic music, and hosting the Play Live! seminars where he discusses how to play live music as an electronic artist, and what it means. His aim is to encourage people to get started regardless of what gear they have. But his focus always comes back to doing it without a computer, without a tablet, and without a phone. The idea is to play live, and get into the moment. He is also a well-loved, and well-traveled DJ.

He has produced, recorded and released music on Jive, BMG, Universal, Defected, King Street, Oh! Stockholm, Cosmic Disco, Treehouse Muzique, and dozens of other indie labels. He also operates the San Francisco-based record label, The Urgency Of Change. For more information about Sunshine Jones, visit his website."
