Arturia's V at its maximum pixel height, with the sequencer emulation and keyboard visible. Completing the quartet of vintage synth emulations they began with Moog Modular V, Arturia's latest plug-in aims to reproduce the sound of the greatest semi-modular of them all, ARP's We see how it fares up against the original I'm an ARP man; I always was.

Page 7: Introduction In , ARP released a small 16 step sequencer in the form of 2 independent 8 step sequences.
This became famous and is still very sought after it is emulated in the ARP V. The same year they presented the Omni, which would become one of ARPs biggest successes.
The instrument al- lowed the combination of two polyphonic violin sounds — Page 8: A Better Emulation Thanks To Tae - True Analog Emulation - is a new technology dedicated to the digital reproduction of analog circuits used in vintage synthesizers. This is why your ARP V offers an unparalleled quality of sound. TAE allows the reproduction of this capacitor discharge. They are both equally deformed by the ARP V low-pass and high—pass filter- ing.
Page Installation First you will need to define an installation folder for the program. You can change this location with the Browse button. Next, have your license number ready and enter it along with your first and last name in the user information window. For more information on these protocols please see Chapter 7. The ARP V will be installed in your applications folder. You can also define a different drive and installation folder.
Next, have your license number ready and enter it along with your name and family name in the user information window. A summary of the different parts of the synthesizer will be presented to you as we guide you through your first use of the program.
You will find a detailed and precise description of all settings and controllers in the following chapters. The ARP V ships with more than presets that will help you to get to know the sounds of the synthesizer. Page 15 Attention! It is important to specify that changing the name of a preset does not create a new one! Only the name of the current preset will be changed. The structure of synthesis for Page The Effects The two effects can be found in the place of the left speaker grid on the synthesizer.
Each sub-bank contains a certain number of presets. You can also change the new preset name by clicking on its name. To import a new bank of pre- sets, click on the preset bank import button in the toolbar: When you click on this button, a dialog appears allowing the choice of ARP V preset bank files.
Page Use Of Controllers The default mode of control for knobs with the mouse is the linear mode: the knob can be set only by vertically moving the mouse. Page The Selectors 4. Simply click on these switches to change their state.
Just click on the knob and move the mouse up or down to change the pitch of your sound. Page Modifying A Connection 4. At the same time, the cables can sometimes hide access to some of the settings available on the modules. Page Midi Control 4. Before anything else, make sure that the MIDI device that you wish to use is correctly connected to the computer, and that the sequencer or the ARP V application is correctly con- figured to receive MIDI events coming from the device.
Page The Modules The ARP V can be separated into 3 parts: from top to bottom, the first is a cabinet dedicated to sound programming and effects, the second concerns the ARP sequencer and the playing mode con- figuration interface with the keyboard and LFO, and finally the third contains the keyboard.
Page 40 For a conventional key follow setting in relation to the scale place the potentiometer completely to the top. Page The Filter Filter - Vcf 5. It is possible to choose a filter type among the five offered: a low pass 24 dB identical to that found on the ARP , a low pass, a high pass, a band-pass and a notch 12 dB of the same kind as the one found on the ARP modulars. Page 42 : Pre-cabled for the manual setting of the key follow :pre-cabled for the manual setting of the modulation by sine wave form of oscillator2 : re-cabled for the manual setting of the modulation by ADSR envelope.
Page 43 Attention! Page Noise Generator : Noise out connection jack. Page Sample And Hold Generator pre-cabled to the Sample and Hold clock to create a composite source of modulation. Page Envelope Follower : Audio or modulation signal input connection jacks. Page Ring Modulator The ring modulator is a module which allows you to multiply two signals in order to generate non- harmonic frequency components.
It is useful for creating metallic sounds. Page Tracking" Generator : Button for opening the tracking curve edit mode. Page Control Voltages Cv Control : Output connection jack for modulation control with the help of the modulation wheel. Page Keyboard Interface Model Even though three oscillators can be used at very low frequencies, there is a specific module for this, allowing you to dedicate the oscillators to generation in the audible domain.
Page 56 : Jack inputs manage the reference voltage for the sequencer generally connected to CV keyboard control - Kybd CV output : Input jacks A and B for the signal quantization. Page 58 The triangle can be considered like a very filtered and soft square signal. It is very low in harmonics odd only and will be very useful for creating sub basses, flute sounds, etc.
Page 59 LFO. This pulse width variation translates to a spectrum modification, resembling a wave- form change. The ARP V waveforms on the oscillator2 The synchronization of an oscillator with another creates more complex waveforms. If for example, you synchronize oscillator2 with oscillator1, oscillator2 will restart a new period every time the first Page 60 A frequency modulation FM can be created between 2 oscillators by connecting the audio output from a first sinusoidal oscillator to the modulation input of a second oscillator.
On the ARP V, if you turn the modulation rate ring, you will obtain a sound richer in harmonics. If you introduce a square or saw tooth signal, the result can be quickly distorted… On the ARP V, you have access to four types of filtering. Page 62 The band-pass band-pass filter or BPF eliminates the frequencies situated on ei- ther side of the cut-off frequency.
Use it to make a certain band of frequencies that you wish to emphasize appear. Page 63 below the cut-off frequency or reduced above the cut-off frequency. Page The Low Frequency Oscillator Not being used to produce a sound, it can be used to create a cyclic modulation on the parameter on which it is connected. For example: If you connect an LFO to the modulation input of an amplifier, the sound volume will increase and decrease in an alternate manner depending on the speed the frequency of this LFO.
Page The Ring Modulator It is also possible to use it for more rhythmic cyclic modulations by connecting a square or saw- tooth wave form coming from a VCO to the sample and hold input. This is the volume of the first oscillator. When you hold down a note, the sound seems continuous and flat!
The duration of the sound becomes shorter. Reconnect the saw-tooth to continue with this preset. Raise the volume potentiometer for this modulation. The filter cut-off frequency will vary in a cyclic manner. This module is one of the major additions to the ARP V compared to the origi- nal. Page This is the modulation rate. Page 77 Once this is done, play a note to hear the result of this modulation. It was added to the ARP V to increase the possibilities for creating melodies and sounds.
The next two examples show how to use the ARP sequencer to create a melody and a sequence of modulation of a synthesis parameter. Page 79 8 steps. The sequencer will only play half of the sequence. Raise the potentiometer of the same name to increase the depth of this modula- tion.
Page 82 These different examples were of varying difficulty. We hope that they will have helped you get to know some of the possibilities offered by the ARPV. You can then limit the keyboard zone by setting the lowest and highest note to be applied to this instrument.
Attention: if saving a configuration in the ARP V application saves the sound settings of the instrument, this has nothing to do with the saving of the presets of the instrument itself cf. For example, if you had been working on a preset P for which you had modified parameters without having saved them under the name P , the next time the song is opened, the ARP V will load preset P with the modifications.

Arturia ARP2600 V User Manual
With a unique combination of semi-modular architecture and fixed preset routing, it gave it the place of being one of the most versatile synths of the 's. The Arp was an iconic sound and Arturia has been faithful in recreating this amazing synthesizer. From the sound of the 3 oscillators to the original 'grey face' filter to the vast modulation routing abilities. You get all this and more.
