Just read the sad news that Alan R. Pearlman, the brilliant engineer behind ARP Synthesizers has passed away at 93.

My first experience with a synthesizer goes back to 1972, when I had the privilege of playing an ARP 2500 modular system at James Cunningham's studio:

I later bought an ARP Axxe in 1976 and an Omni II in 1979 and still use them in my music. The filter design in their products is excellent and the oscillators rarely drift out of tune.

RIP Alan and thank you for the inspiration.

Tom
