2600 tutorials?
« on: August 08, 2013, 04:07:27 pm »
Okay, since buying the V Collection last week, this synth has become my favorite. However, my understanding of how to program it is like me learning Chinese
Are there any online tutorials?
thnx

Hi.
I'm in the exactly same position as you, just bought the V-collection myself, and struggeling to figure it all out..  ;-)
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be too many GOOD tutorials out there, so I would advice you to download the old manuals for the ARP2600, and search the youtube for some too.
Also, a smart thing to do is to download the old patchbook for the original,- you can find it here: http://www.matrixsynth.com/2012/07/arp-2600-patch-book-full-scan-in-pdf.html
That gives you some advice on how this works, but there's no easy way..  ;-)

It can also be helpful to use a blank patchsheet to write down your own patches,- kind of oldfashioned, but many still prefer to have this option.  :-)
You can find that here: http://sonic.net/mjones/archive/docs/

Finally, in the manual,- on page 69 where you start to program your first bass-preset, there's an error:
It says that you should use the preset "temp/blank),- well that doesn't excist,- you'll have to use the preset "2_Osc", same preset with  the only difference that it's allready programmed to sound.
Bank: Templates - Synth - 2_Osc.

Just my two cents.  ;-)

About tutorials, there's a great series called Synt Secrets, that Sound on Sound magazine finished about 10 years ago, it covers absolutely everything regarding analog and digital synthesis,- with good examples on how to make specific imitations of instruments and sounds.
It's quite long, it went over a period of 4 years, and has 63 tutorials/instructions, so for a soundprogrammer it is some stuff to dig into there.  :-)

It may be a bit difficult to just have it as websides like that, but if you want to put some effort in to it,- you could maybe use Adobe Pro (or a similar program) to make pfd-documents of all the webside tutorials, I've done it with a few of those, and it helps me a lot having them on the ipad while I work on the instruments.

I should have figured this out earlier: moving VCF Init.Filter Frequency slider for the Frankenstein sound effect; I made it sound better by adding ARP2600V stereo delay also.

Thank you Futureline!
