ARP

ARP Instruments, Inc. (subsequently referred to as ARP) was founded in 1969. The name came from the initials of one of the founders, Alan Robert Pearlman. Co-founders included Lewis G. Pollock and David Friend, who was the chief engineer and later designed the ARP Odyssey.

The first synth that ARP produced was the ARP 2500, a bulky modular synthesizer. It was meant to compete with the Moog modular synths that were coming out in the late 60’s. ARPs innovation was getting rid of the patch cable that tended to get in the way and block the view of the unit. The design replaced the common patch cable system of the time with a number of matrix switches.
