In this video, synth tech Keith Robert Murray, takes a look inside the classic ARP Omni synthesizer.
The ARP Omni is a vintage polyphonic synthesizer from 1975. It’s a string synth style keyboard, with divide-down circuitry delivering full 49-note polyphony. The Omni has three sections: Strings, synthesizer & bass.
While it has limited synthesis capabilities, the combination of full polyphony and the Omni’s Chorus Phaser give it a lush sound that made it ARP’s most popular keyboard.
