Description: Rhodes Chroma is a 1982 16-voice analog synthesizer with a bold and blocky design. One of the first microprocessor-based analog synthesizers, it was also the last keyboard developed by ARP, 2600 and Odyssey before being sold by CBS in 1981.
Chroma could be used as a 1/16 voice or 2/8 voice synthesizer and was programmed mostly with a large set of membrane buttons (80s in every sense). While the programming was awkward, the design was quite complex with a rich sound, never harsh – perfect for bass, strings, funky piano sounds, and clicks.
Following Chroma was Polaris, a 6-voice analog synthesizer released in 1984. While Polaris is somewhat simplistic, it has more memory and extensive MIDI implementation with full parameter control and can play multiple patches at the same time. Like Chroma, Polaris has a rich analog sound capable of reproducing incredible bass, brass, strings and more – even some Synthex / Rendez-vous’esque sounds thanks to its sync parameter.
