Rhodes Chroma

Released in 1982

As Arp faded from existence in 1981, its most ambitious project, the analog Chroma polysynth, was taken over by Rhodes and released under their brand the following year. With a velocity-sensitive weighted keyboard and the ability to connect to an Apple IIe computer for program and sequencer storage, it was a beast of a synth, with either 16 single-oscillator voices or 8 two-oscillator voices. Only 3000 Chromas were manufactured, and the keyboard-less Chroma Expander was even more rare.
