Cherry Audio tells us that their CA2600 is a powerful, self-contained duophonic synthesizer inspired by the groundbreaking ARP 2600 synthesizer. They say that every aspect of the original, from the quirky oscillator waves, to the powerful ladder filter, to the external audio input and preamp section was modeled with tremendous precision. Though it features similar functionality, it's been thoughtfully updated for increased flexibility - with semi-normalled patch cabling, integrated effects, and no hidden windows or menus in the audio path,
A spokesperson told us, "CA2600 delivers an unprecedented hands-on, 'everything right in front of you, right now!,' vintage synthesis experience like no other. Wildly flexible, capable of chunky basses, cutting leads, super-creative external audio processing, absolutely insane effects, and so much more, we believe you'll find CA2600 to be the finest 2600 emulation ever created."
CA2600 is available in AU, VST, VST3, AAX, and standalone formats.
