I've really enjoyed building the TTSH.
It's given me a unique perspective of one of the greatest synthesizers of all time - The ARP 2600.
As my build notes are all over this blog I thought it would be good to put them into some sort of order
Thus this index:
1. Preconstruction Pics
2. 2047-1 VCO submodule
3. PSU - We have the Power !!!
4. VCO 1
5. VCO 2
6. VCO 3
7. 4012 Filter (DIY)
8. The 4020 ADSR
9a. Transistor Matching.
10. Ring Modulator
11. Pre Amp
12. Envelope Follower
13. Mixer & Reverb
15. Voltage Processors
16. Internal Clock
17. Sample & Hold
18. Electronic Switch
19. The Amplifiers
20. Final bits
21. First Impressions (Video)
22. Building the TTSH in 14 mins (Two Videos)
This order of building the TTSH can be changed of course.
I've basically followed Zthee's notes and found them to be very useful.
It's taken me about 3 months to put together, but I estimate that it can be done in about 20hrs
if you put your mind to it (giving up eating & any toilet breaks).
But if you take the long road this is a very rewarding experience. Studying the circuit diagrams and trying to
understand how the ARP engineers put this together nearly 50 years ago is so cool.
We have a window into the mind of Alan Richard Pearlman.
Thanks Zthee. :-)
