A Legacy of Innovation

The Story of Chroma

The ARP Chroma, born from pioneering efforts in 1979, was a groundbreaking 16-voice polyphonic synthesizer equipped with advanced features like aftertouch and intricate modulation. Despite ARP's financial struggles, Rhodes salvaged the design, producing it from 1982 to 1984. While hailed for its engineering, its flat panel interface posed challenges. Still, the Chroma remains revered, with only around 3,000 produced, earning praise from luminaries like Herbie Hancock and Joe Zawinul. Delve into its legacy in our documentary "The Story of Chroma," featuring exclusive insights from its creators and renowned users.

A Chroma - Expanded! - for Everyone

Cherry Audio's Chroma synthesizer is a virtual marvel, faithfully recreating the essence of its legendary predecessor while introducing innovative features. It meticulously replicates every detail of the Rhodes Chroma, even allowing direct import of SysEx patch data. The instrument's 16 preconfigured signal paths offer modular flexibility, while its improved user interface simplifies programming with intuitive pop-up elements and real-time displays.

Enhancing the original's expressive capabilities, Chroma includes features like velocity sensitivity and aftertouch, along with an Expander emulation for expanded layering and splitting options. With a vast library of 700 presets and seven integrated studio-quality effects, it caters to diverse musical styles.

Beyond replication, Chroma incorporates Cherry Audio's own innovations, making its unique sonic qualities accessible to modern musicians. Lead designer Mitchell Sigman's tutorial video guides users through its features, ensuring they unlock its full potential quickly.
