"Very rich-sounding instrument with polyphonic aftertouch, velocity sensitivity, and immense programming capabilities. Almost like a modular synth in a programmable box." -RJD2, [Thump.Vice Intervew](https://thump.vice.com/en_ca/article/rjd2-gave-us-a-guided-tour-of-his-columbus-ohio-home-studio)more
A Rhodes Chroma is shown and described at 0:30 in this Studio Tour by *MusicTech*. Ulrich says about the synth "It has typically an app sound in the sense that it has a very aggressive - very present mid-range - I find it very useful for sort of elements that need to cut through in the mix, like melodies or sequences that need to be very present."more
"Zawinul did not stop at the Wurlitzer and Fender Rhodes electric pianos he used in the 1960s. By the late 1960s he was extending his sonic palette with effects like phase shifters, Echoplexes, wah-wahs and ring modulators, and when synthesizers came on the market he was among the first to buy one (the EMS Putney). The list of synthesizers he has used since then — among them the ARP 2600, Rhodes Chroma, Oberheim Four-voice and Eight-voice, ARP Quadra, Sequential Prophet 5 and Prophet T8, Korg Trident, Oberheim Xpander, Korg VC10 vocoder, Emu Emulator, Casio CZ101, Korg DW8000, DSS1, DSM1 and M1 — reads like a synth museum's treasure list."more
