Fender Chroma Polaris

Video in the listing previously posted here.

"The synth came from a smoke free studio, it has a couple of knicks in the wood end cheeks and on one of the end cheeks is what appears to be duct tape adhesive residue. It was like this when I bought it, other than that, it's fully functional.

The Chroma Polaris was the second synthesizer made by Fender/Rhodes after they took over ARP, following their classic . It has a classic analog ARP-like sound, kind-of tinny but also fat. Sounds can be layered up to 6 voices. It has typical analog synth controls including a cool 'sweep' knob for sweeping through the LFO or analog filter cutoff parameters. It also has a simple real-time sequencer and 132 memory patches.

There's also a nice and colorful layout with sliders similar to Roland Juno synths, membrane push-buttons and a large velocity sensitive 61-note keyboard making the Chroma Polaris a very nice synth. Fully MIDI-equipped, the Polaris will transmit and receive all its edit controls through MIDI as well as the ability to play up to three patches at once."
