A Classic, Reimagined. The 2600 Like Never Before

The Cherry Audio CA2600 is a powerful, self-contained duophonic synthesizer inspired by the groundbreaking ARP 2600 synthesizer. 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, 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.


What musicians are saying:

The CA2600 is fantastic! The UI is clear and crisp, which is so important when programming a VA synth. The presets are a wonderful blend of utility, creativity, and nostalgia... props to the designer! And most importantly, the sound quality is superb!

Eric LevyKeyboard Player, Night Ranger


Cherry Audio has done it again and returned with a very special musical instrument. CA2600 is a marvel of an instrument with an open canvas to explore, create, and further express the language of sound. Cherry Audio has opened up a whole new portal for artists to continue the legacy of the ARP 2600. It howls, growls, sings, and listens.

The original ARP 2600 is one of the all-time greatest synthesizers ever created and a personal favorite. I have used mine on many recordings and am overjoyed to find in the CA2600 a digital version that is close to the original. The sonic modeling is wonderful. Thank you, Cherry Audio!

I love this 2600! When I first joined Black Sabbath, there were two ARP 2600's at Ozzy’s house - one became my constant companion for the next two years. The CA2600 takes me back to 1975… I can hear Pink Floyd and Keith Emerson immediately. With MIDI, spring and plate reverb, and delay, this is truly a wonderful machine!

CA2600 sounds amazing! It truly functions like the real thing, which I owned for many years. Plus the additional features like MIDI sync, FX bus, 12/24 dB filter option, etc. are great. It’s like having a perfectly restored 2600 with every mod possible, all controllable by a DAW. A dream come true. Super well done!
