A Brief History of a Classic late 70’s Synth  –  The ARP Quadra!

The ARP Quadra was a 61 key analog musical synthesizer produced by ARP Instruments, Inc. from 1978 to 1981.

The machine was a four section synthesiser that combined pre-existing products, including the  OmniOdyssey and Solina and consisted of a bass-synth (monophonic), poly-synth (full polyphonic), lead-synth (duophonic), and Solina like analog strings (full polyphonic).

The top three octaves of the keyboard have a mechanical touch sensor that can either pitch bend or impact brilliance and filter. Unique is the flat pedal feature which allows pedaling to dip individual notes and chords a semitone below so they rise to pitch with the envelope’s attack.

The Quadra used the typical ARP orange and black color scheme of the company’s later years including the orange leather end pieces and the clean XLR out for DI console recording.

This is a classic late 70’s synth that was used by: Genesis, Pink Floyd, New Order, Joe Zawinul and John Carpenter… and many more.
