Sure, although it might change the character of the synth.

'Bad like the original'?
Arguably the dodgy circuits and components was what made it such a great synth.
The audio input particularly distorts fantastically.
My (grey face) had the original Moog knock off filter, which I have to say was glorious.

In the end, you are right, no one wants a new synth that breaks down, hums and has fizzing and crackling.
But if you change most of the components, add midi, add extra ADSRs, LFOs and additional oscillator features, you might as well just design and build a different synth (IMHO).

I don't like buying classics, it's too much risk and they are too expensive..( he says as he waits delivery of a fully restored SH 1 ) but I am more than happy to buy new analogs or recreations of old classics using new parts, I want stability and reliability in my electronics, my studio is turned on 24hrs a day practically unless I'm at work so my gear must be new/ish ( mostly ).. I would buy a new 2600 if it was under 2k and made well, it would be a fantastic synth to incorporate into the modular chain..

I thought that the Ttsh project had been halted a few months back. Further feeding the speculation that Korg has purchased it for mass production.

The end of the TTSH project has nothing to do with a "Korg ARP 2600" ( if it will ever happen...).
It was of a matter of one man business , taking too much time , too much hazzle to try to make business for a man who loves to solder and read schematics more than to sell things. A very common scenario in the synthesizer history.

Korg Arp 2600.....look at the page.
Somebody on the other thread kind of debunked this website already saying this had been up for quite some time now. I don't know details though.

Fake.

That website has pages for all sorts of rumored stuff, and uses images found via Google. It's been brought up a number of time in various NAMM threads.

Yamaha Montage DX-10 / AN-10 / VL-10 (fan creations) (We now know what Montage really looks like)
Waldorf Sprechkäse
Waldorf Magenbitter
Waldorf Klassenzimmer
Waldorf Kassettenspieler

With so many other modular options today, why bother with a 2600 unless it was cheap. Especially since it's not fully modular anyway.

Look at the Moog reissues, WTF is with those prices? Just buy a dotcom.

Frankly for most purposes I prefer a semi modular design like the 2600 with patchable overide.

I only take semi-modulars when they are compatible to eurorack standard, since all my other semi-modulars are that standard.

The 2600 definitely has a sound.
Also, it is compatible with Eurorack (if anyone was confused).

All I can say to Mr Firechild...

Please stop wasting time on Gearslutz talking about the Arp2600 and finish your next album! Make sure it includes the Arp Quadra tune!

I want to give you some $$$ for the sheer joy that tune has provided me

There's no "up to $1500." Option, I couldn't vote.

There's also no "No, already have TTSH" option, so I couldn't vote either..

I don't understand where such outrageous prices like $4500 are from. Korg issued korg ms20 for mere $500 -- ARP 2600 is on the same level of complexity and parts amount -- excluding spring verb and speakers.

Of course I bought an Odyssey reissue right before they announced this LOL.

Would people want it if it's on the same level of reissue as the Oddysey is to the original Oddysey?

No, it needs to be more accurate, the TTSH is good enough.

I dunno - the TTSH sounded ultra clean to me when I heard it. read about it a lot and listened to demos when first lot came out.

If korg do the 2600, no digital reverb to replace spring please!

That's what I thought. So better not have korg involved.

Absolutely, the karp is a great synth.

I agree. But I never slutted over an original Oddysey. So I didn't care how close it was, and I enjoy the karp cause I'm not comparing it to anything.

2600 otoh, I've been wanting one for 25 years. I would also want it to sound like the original.
