In a new teaser video Cherry Audio hints at a polyphonic and multi-part synth emulation with 4 buttons and uses morse code to reinforce the emphasis on “4”. What does it all add up to?

Four

The Quadra was a synthesizer of 4 parts. You had a monophonic bass synth, duophonic lead and then a divide down polyphonic string and synth section. These were all selectable via blue and green buttons on the front panel and playable individually or simultaneously making it essentially 4-part multi-timbral although many of the controls were shared.

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The tease video gives us some separate sounds, starting with a bass sound that then seems to bring in some strings and then it goes a bit zany. The colours of the buttons and LEDs are spot-on for the Quadra although you never see the colours arranged as they are in the teaser.

The morse code in the video description appears to represent the number 16, but they are behind a sign for square root making the answer 4. I’m pretty convinced we’re talking about the ARP Quadra. What do you think?
