A Brief History of The Classic 80’s Rhodes Chroma Polaris!

The Rhodes Chroma Polaris was a 61 key, velocity sensitive analog musical synthesizer produced by Fender/Rhodes after they took over ARP in 1984.

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.

Unfortunately the Rhodes Chroma Polaris is quite rare and usually hard to find now, it has been used by legendary keyboardist Joe Zawinul, Leftfield and Jimmy Edgar amongst others.

Reinventing a Classic Synth for the Modern Studio

The developers at Synth Magic love the “Polaris” and wanted to ensure they captured the heart and soul of this beautiful sounding synth!

All of the raw OSC’s have been sampled and a large variety of presets and custom sounds have been sampled. All samples are available within the instrument via waveform menus for immediate access (and streamed from hard drive), no messing around loading in different sample sets – “Polar” is quick and easy to use!

This instrument will provide you a large selection of beautiful “Polaris” sounds including:

  • Strings
  • Synths
  • Analogue keys
  • A beautiful analogue Polaris Piano
  • Leads
  • Synth Tones
  • Basses

The user interface graphics were designed in a country known for great design, Sweden, by world renowned graphic interface designer – Anders Hedstrom.

The effects section has some nice features including the Delay and Reverb Sends can be controlled by your Modwheel – It is great fun to have the arp or the sequencer running and then push your modwheel to bring in reverbs and delays!

In making “Polar”, Synth Magic sampled a large and wide range of sounds from the Polaris and presented them in an easy to use Waveform Menu x 2 and they also added multiple Filters and MIDI sync-able LFO’s, an Arpeggiator and a wide range of Effects.

Also included is a fun and easy to use Sequencer which can sequence notes, octave and note length, filter cutoff, resonance, reverb and delay sends. The sequencer has randomise functions, shift left/right, inverse etc… it is child’s play to come up with groovy sequencers and then transpose them using your keyboard!

“Polar” comes with over 200 Snapshots so you can get to use the great sounds of the Polaris in your productions!
