In the second studio you can work with an extensive set of synthesizer instruments from the 70s and 80s. The showpiece is the ARP 2500, of which only 100 were made in the 1970s. The Willem Twee studios are one of the few places in the world where this Stradivarius among synths can be played publicly. Besides the ARP 2500 the studio also includes the EMS Putney, ARP 2600, PPG synth and step sequencer, EMS Synthi, Wasp and Serge Modular, amongst others. It is a large modular analog paradise, and for this reason ‘s-Hertogenbosch has already been coined ‘Synth City’.
