UVI's Kroma 1.5 Brings Back The Analog 80s, And It's Bigger Than Ever

The latest update to Kroma actually has two instruments with the addition of PolarX, a new two-layer synth - and it's on sale. Here's what you need to know about it.

Kroma 1.5 from UVI includes two instruments, Kroma and PolarX - a new dual-layer synth. Both come packed with custom designed presets programmed on fully-restored hardware units, including Arpeggios, Bass, Bells, Brass, FX, Leads, Pads, Strings, Sweeps. Even the basic waveforms of the keyboards were sampled to allow design of new patches. Take complete control of these classics with a built-in arpeggiator, step sequencer, LFOs and high-quality FX.

Sporting a bold and blocky design the Rhodes Chroma is a 16-voice analog synthesizer from 1982. One of the first microprocessor-based analog synths it was also the last keyboard designed by ARP, makers of the 2600 and Odyssey among others, before being sold to CBS in 1981.

The Chroma could be used as either a 1-osc/16-voice or 2-osc/8-voice synthesizer and was programmed primarily via a large array of membrane buttons ('80s in every sense). While programming wasn't convenient, the design was fairly sophisticated with a rich sound, never harsh - perfect for bass, strings, funky piano sounds and plucks.

Price: $49 / 49 Eur until 25th Nov, then 79.
