    If anyone is interested, Korg is doing a remake of the 2600, only $3K+..

    When I was a kid, my Dad had an LP of some Tchaikovsky classical music performed entirely on an ARP in 1977. It was fantastic.
    Here it is from YT.
    Skip to 12:50 for the fun bits of the 1812 Overture. Sugar Plum Fairy is at 22:37.

    Still not buying one though.
    My pocket money will only stretch to an SD-1!

    Pete Townshend had some fun with the mammoth 2500 and 2600.

    Me neither.. Not that good on keys here. I do have the Behringer Model D clone. It fills that niche.

    I think I might have an ARP modelled by some Native Instruments VST software, Kontakt 5.
    Never really played with it though. Hideously complicated.

    I have a few GForce software keys I purchased years ago. ImpOSCar and the Mellotron plugins were convincing. I prefer a tactile approach to gear, its gotta have knobs.
