Fender/Rhodes Chroma Polaris SN 301104


via this auction

"Hidden gem and underdog of the 80s VCO polysynths, the Chroma Polaris is the last in the proud ARP lineage of fine synths.

This one has fresh membrane panels (installed late 2018) so will good-to-go for many years. This unit was professionally serviced, calibrated, by Greg Montalbano of Analog Synth Service in Oakland CA this year.

One of the first MIDI synths, it features the same CEM chips as famed Oberheim Xpander, which means awesome, crystalline and slightly metallic sound to the oscillators...which you'll never find in a soft synth or digital synth.

Radical features:
Velocity-sensitive
Semi-weighted keys
Multi-timbral mode
On-board sequencer
MIDI Sysex capable
Intel 80186 16-bit microprocessor (!)"
