atari“Ive modified this vintage Atari 2600 Woody model for you to add to your 8bit arsenal of sound.

Rare mod for me, get it while you can.

In fully working condition, ive cleaned all the controls so theyre working as good as new.

Im including the Synthcart cartridge that turns this into a very cool synthesizer and drum machine using the keyboard controllers that are also included.

You can still play all of your favorite games on this, it works as a normal Atari.

You can find more info online in regards to the Synthcart but if youre checking this out then you probably already know how cool it is.

Ive added standard 1/4″ & RCA audio output jacks, with volume control, for easy connection to your mixer, amp or pa.” Link

“Sweet atari 2600 setup. Includes modified console with 1/4 audio output jack to connect directly to your mixer, sampler, effects, soundcard, etc. Also includes Synthcart (game cartridge), power supply, 2 keyboard controllers. I purchased this item on ebay and never got around to using it. I didn’t have the correct monitor to set up. It has been sitting on my shelf for some time. I have too many synths, it’s time to go to a new home.” Link

“Selling a modded Atari 2600. This thing has been turned from a vintage video game system to an old school analogue synthesizer by way of a quarter inch instrument cable having been cleanly soldered onto the circuit board. Includes the synthcart game, power supply (not stock), and two keyboard style controllers. RF cable is still intact, but I’ve never used a TV with the Atari, nor do I own one to test the RF connection, so I’m selling as-is.” Link

“Atari 2600 with synthcart. very cool synth I’ve had this since 2007. A favorite among my friends especially when jamming. .

I soldered the 1/4″ jack myself so I could hook it up to an amp or through effect pedals. Comes with the television adapter(which i had to search a few flea markets for. It connects via coax), two key pads, and the power adapter that I took from an old phone. Everything in the Atari itself works as it should.

The number pads have quite a few buttons missing. I’ve filled the empty buttons with bits of wadded up paper which works fine. But I would suggest looking for the Atari “touch pad”. They have nice rubber buttons that don’t fall out. They sell for pretty cheap on eBay. I’m including these because they’re all I have.

I also know that this can be controlled via midi e.g. you can hook a midi controller to the Atari. There’s a few kits available online to do this. just Google “synthcart midi highly liquid” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Atari 2600 with Synthcart synthesizer cartridge, two keyboard controllers, 1/4″ audio out and Highly Liquid MIDI aftermarket module! I purchased the Atari 2600 and MIDI module separately, had it installed by a licensed tech here in town. All the blippy, buzzy video game 8bit sounds are all here and controllable by MIDI. This is not software – this is the real thing and the difference is inarguably significant. Great for live performance as well.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
