Quadra Testimonials

“After diving into this 'fab four' of integrated soft synths, I can see how the Quadra could be an MVP in the studio and in a live setting, as it covers so much sonic territory right out of the box. Also, graphically speaking, it’s beautiful to...”

“I used Quadra heavily as a main pad in a song yesterday and it sounds incredible on its own, but even better in the mix. A lot of synth plugins sound great in solo but get them to sit in a mix can be a struggle. I'm finding Quadra (and a bunch of...”

“Cherry Audio's Quadra is spot-on, with rich analog sounds that layer up just like the original ARP Quadra. The interface is exactly like the original, so if you used the Quadra back in the day, you’ll enjoy!”

“Just brilliant, I have to say it’s a soundscape creator’s dream. Fantastic warm basses, laser-cutting screaming leads, or just one multi-preset gives you a full orchestral setup. The four-channel output mixer is excellent for rebalancing sounds...”

“Cherry Audio has done it again! In need of some creative inspiration, I just scrolled through a whole bunch of Quadra presets, and after a few tweaks and edits to my liking, I easily programmed a new sound and the beginnings of a cool new song!...”

“I had the pleasure of seeing Weather Report's Joe Zawinul and Genesis's Tony Banks live in their heyday - I'd see the ARP Quadra and was fascinated by its sound. It's 2021 and I have an incredible recreation of the classic Quadra on my computer....”

“The ARP Quadra was always a bit of a mystery: unobtainable, and supposedly unreliable. I always wondered if it deserved the hype. After finally playing one, I totally understood what was special about it. Cherry Audio has once again knocked it out...”

“Whilst the early 2500, 2600, and Odyssey have a special place in my heart, the later experiments are equally intriguing. The Quadra is quite the oddball and I was delighted to get to play one once. However, the odds of me ever owning one are...”
