    He died on Jan. 6. He was 93.

    Without his synths, Genesis, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock, Weather Report, Brian Eno, The Who would have all sounded a lot different. Lots of fusion and prog artists in the 70s used them. Here's an ARP 2600 in 1978 on Tony Banks' synth rig:

    Thank you Mr. Pearlman. Back in 1979 I studied on the ARP 2600, amongst others.

    I cut my teeth on a 2600 in the mid 1980s when everyone around me was playing with DX-7s and Mirages.

    This was done on an ARP, as were the R2D2 noises in Star Wars:
