This might be old news, but I just found out Behringer is cloning my favorite drum machine of all time. I'll be first in line for this one. For the record, I hope all the presets are kept, just for the sake of having them.
In the meantime, you can get FunkBox to scratch that itch. I play with it all the time. It's a blast.

The ARP2600 has never been one of my bucket list synthesizers, but that BARP2600 sure as hell looks like a whole lot of fun and will undoubtedly be affordable.
At least, you are wanting only a 3-osc semimodular synth with a faceplate resembling a sort of 2600. The BARP2600 is nothing close to the real 2600, as the AMSynths modules from which it comes didn't nail the real sound(and they didn't have success, too). They put a lot of stuff (like sync) that originals don't have. If you want an ARP 2600, go and grab a Korg reissue.

Whatever it is, it sure looks like a fun synthesizer to play. If anyone wants to shell out for a real one by all means they still can do so.

Real, shmeal... Who cares? (Obviously some people/nerds... ;) ). If it sounds good, it sounds good and this thing sounds good and I bet it sounds damn close anyhow.

There's still people saying the Behringer Model D sounds nothing like a vintage Minimoog when meanwhile vintage Minimoogs don't even sound alike.

Last time I checked, the Korg reissue was $4k...and completely sold out. I don’t think they plan on making more, so that leaves us with a vintage model at [checks vintage prices] an average of $10k??? Sorry, if it doesn’t sound exactly the same, but it looks like a helluva good time at a cost point that doesn’t require me selling my car to afford it.
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

Exactly.

I repeat. Behringer is killing it!
