ARP QUADRA Analog Synthesizer (1978) *One Day In Autumn*

Published on Oct 2, 2019 RetroSound

"(c) 2019 vintage synthesizer track by RetroSound

ARP QUADRA - rare analog synthesizer from the year 1979

I used in the demo track all four synth sections (analog strings and phase shifter, poly-synth, bass-synth, lead-synth);
All played live by hand,

The Quadra is a four-section synthesizer consisting of a bass-synth (monophonic), poly-synth (full polyphonic), lead-synth (duophonic), and Solina like analog strings (full polyphonic)

The synth has included a awesome 12 stage phase shifter, dual portamento controls and fantastic arpeggiator.

used by: Genesis, Pink Floyd, New Order, Joe Zawinul, John Carpenter..."

  1. Wonderful track! Thank You for sharing it!
    Vastly under-rated synth. This video shows why.
    Some simple mods can make this synth even more amazing.
    Quadra's Phaser is 14 stage, not 12, FWIW.
