Emulation of features, functions and appearance of ARP 2600 and simulates a few functiions from the 3620 keyboard. Built with Synthmaker, so the actual sound does not match that of 2600 or any other ARP or vintage hardware synth - but for the many, many folks who will never be able to afford the real thing, this allows playing in a similar sandbox for free. Patching is by drop-down menus at each input jack.
32-bit, so will require jBridge, etc., (or a DAW that will bridge) for use on 64-bit systems.
The link on the website is to a Dropbox folder that also contains the .osm Synthmaker source 'schematic', so anyone with SM, or it's successor Flowstone, can alter it to suit. It's hoped that anyone who makes significant improvements will share the result with everyone.
As this was originally built for my own use only, there are no presets included; I wanted to come at the instrument anew each time, as one did with vintage analog hardware.
The name "tonus", by the way, was ARP's company name before being changed to Alan R. Pearlman's initials.
