arp1613 “Up for auction is a super rare ARP Sequencer Model 1613. The unit is in good PHYSICAL condition and Powers Up but since I don’t have the proper products to use to fully test the item, it is being sold for PARTS or REPAIR.

The unit is in pretty good condition with the switches on top moving as they should and the sliders fairly smooth. The first slider is in half but still easy to access and move. There are a few wear marks including a hairline mark on the right side of the front panel, hairline marks on left side (same plane as the power switch) and a few small nicks next to the power switch. The wood side panels are intact and in good condition with only a few minor nicks.” Link

“Vintage 1976 ARP Sequencer
Model 1613
Serial# 16130365
with Original Owners Manual, Foot Switch
and Rare Arp Sequencer Facsimile Pad (20 sheets)

Look what else was hiding in the back of a closet- Last used in 1985 for a recording project-

Cosmetically, this thing looks INCREDIBLE! It was stored well…
in the original blown-foam box – used in the studio ONLY.
Nice wooden end caps and hardware, hardly a scratch anywhere!

I don’t have a way to test this unit with a synth – the Arp Odyssey this used to operate is ailing,
but I plugged it in and pushed the Start button, and wow… the ‘step’ lights started going
from left to right (like they’re supposed to) and it stops, steps and resets like normal!
Some of the sliders are a bit stiff and don’t track accurately, not like normal.
The ‘step’ lights seem like they’re doing what they’re supposed to do…
the ‘Gate Bus’, ’16/1-8/2′, ‘Sequential-Random’ switches and all the buttons affect the
‘step lights’ normally, as do the ‘Clock Freq’, ‘FM’ and ‘Pulse Width’ switches.
I’m pretty sure the only thing that makes this an AS-IS, FOR PARTS auction is
the control sliders – if they were replaced, this unit would be 100%.
I have no way to test the various outputs or the CV Input, but I’ll bet they work as normal…

If you win this auction, I’ll guarantee this unit to work, NOT be D.O.A., even the sliders.
I repeat- the sliders on this unit are not working correctly, but they DO work!” Link

‘You are bidding on an ARP 1613 sequencer, used to control any CV based instrument. The 1613 was designed as an auxilliary control for the ARP 2600 series synth. This unit is in great condition except the front lens of the on/off switch has fallen out (see picture). this is easily replaceable with a $9.00 part from any electrical supply. Not very many of these were made and very few are around. This is not only a great addition to a vintage collection, but a great piece for the working lab or musician.” Link

“his Sequencer is in great condition!!! — (details below)—

This Arp Sequencer has had a complete overhaul. All of the electrolytic capacitors have been replaced, all of the sliders and switches have been professionally cleaned to ensure proper working condition, and the calibration procedures according to the service manual have been performed.

The 1613 come with a downloadable digital version of the manual which not only explains ways of connecting it to other gear, but also has pages of different sequencer pattern presets. The manual can be found HERE

There are some slight surface scratches which can be seen in the pics. I made sure to show these so that there are no surprises when it arrives. Some of the pics of the close ups may show no color cap on the slider. I assure you, there are slider caps on all sliders and all sliders are present. I took the pic before placing the rubber tops on the shafts.” Link

“I am selling my ARP model 1613 sequencer. I no longer need the sequencer in my setup and feel like it is time to sell, so someone will be lucky to be the new owner of this rare piece of ARP history! I fixed this up a few months ago so all of the electronics are working 100% However, it might be worth cleaning the sliders to get them to run more smoothly, because as of now they are a bit stiff. There is a bit of a smudge (visible in the pictures) underneath the two buttons on the sequencer. Also, the back panel is missing, but this should be an easy replacement and is definitely not a necessity. The sequencer is one of the most advanced and has a large amount of options on it.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“My interest in electronic music goes back to the early sixties when I was first exposed to the Moog (I think it was among the first ones built – it was VERY hand-done) and started fooling with a tape recorder and homemade relaxation oscillators, electronic switches, etc. I owned the first ARP 2600 in Mississippi (it was sometimes used at Malaco Studios, of which you might have heard, by visiting artists) and still have two of them in various states of disrepair — I’ll put them up on eBay when I feel up to cataloging their faults and packing large things.

This sequencer was later part of my home studio set-up, dates from the mid to late 70′s, and is something I DO feel like packing up. But it has some problems, and not being an expert technician (nor an expert keyboardist, either, as my eBay name indicates!) I don’t feel up to investigating DIY repairs.

Enough with the personal history, you say. Ok.

Here’s a description: First, it looks pretty good, noting some anomalous grunge on the front panel under the Start button (visible in photo). Next, the sliding pots are sticky, as would be expected after having lain fallow for some years. The big thing is, the clock is uncontrollable and has tachycardia — it beats as fast as it can at any setting. That’s probably not a big deal to someone who’s worked on these things. I can’t make any assurances about output voltages and quantizing accuracy, but there are a lot of trimmers for those, as you probably know if you’re looking at this listing.

The good part is, the LEDs sequence and step, and the device responds appropriately to “random” and “sequence.” The 16/8 switch does what it’s supposed to. It will also trigger with the foot switch, and the deal includes both types of foot-pedals, the push-on push-off and the push-on release-off.

The serial # is 16130221.

For those seriously interested, I will be happy to conduct any tests you request, if they can be performed with the instrumentation at my disposal, which extends only to a DVM and a ‘scope. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“This ARP 1613 sequencer is in excellent condition, no missing slider tips, no dings or dents, no modifications, and includes the original owners manual, unused preset sheet pad, ARP software and Accessory Catalog, and the important notice that some synthesizers will have to be modified to operate with the 1613 (the early Axxe and Odyssey synths didn’t have CV/gate outs). It also includes a photocopy of the service manual (not pictured). Works fine, at least it did the last time I used it with my Odyssey which is now gone. I have no way to test it, but it was chugging along fine a year ago when I boxed it up. These are scarcely seen items and this one has the original paperwork to go with it. There is one tiny scratch on the bottom about an inch long and some tape residue on the bottom which I didn’t clean off. Apart from that it’s perfect. It’s used so it’s sold as is, but check my feedback and bid accordingly. I will return if you plug it into your working ARP synthesizer and it doesn’t sequence, I can’t test it but it never gave me any trouble.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“We have a an ARP 1613 Sequencer for sale!

This unit works well and as intended.
Circuitry and construction are original to the unit.
Jacks and controls operate properly.
The red fader tip for the “Clock Freq” control and one rubber foot are missing.
The unit shows some cosmetic scratching and wear from age and use, but is sturdy overall.
The faders and buttons operate well, but could use cleaning/lubrication before going into heavy usage.
Unit is guaranteed to be working on arrival.

In a world where analog-style sequencers have come en vogue again, one unit stands alone.
The ARP Sequencer is the standard by which all others are judged.
Get it into your studio and let the diabolical experimentation begin.
