ARP OMNI Mk1 (1975)


The ARP Omni was a mutli-timbral orchestral ensemble synth that enabled the simultaneous playing of 'strings', 'synthesizer' and 'bass', with full polyphony, but limited control of the sounds. The ARP Omni MkII was released in 1978 whose most notable change was to the now standard orange-on-black fascia design.
