44 ARTURIA – ARP2600– USER’S MANUAL
5.1.2 The Oscillators (VCO)
There are three oscillators in the ARP2600.
The oscillators permit the management of the base frequency and tone of the ARP 2600.
It also manages the impulse width of the waveforms. These changes can either be made
with linear potentiometers, or thanks to modulation inputs which can be connected to the
output of any module (envelope, low frequency oscillator - LFO -, modulation wheel…).
The oscillators can also be tuned and modulated separately with the potentiometers and
a range selector. These oscillators supply up to 4 waveforms that can be used
These 3 oscillators, tuned separately and providing mixed waveforms, quickly give us
very rich sounds. The tone can also be easily modified with modulation inputs.
