A rough simulation of the rather obscure ARP Explorer I. Afertouch controls based on those from the ARP Pro Soloist have been added, as well as stereo outputs and the ability to detune and individually pan the four 'ranks'.

Each of the aftertouch controls has a dedicated sensitivity control and can alternately be controlled by the mod wheel.

The Preset buttons' operations are not obvious and have nothing to do with presets in the vst-sense. A read of the manual is very helpful, and is included in the folder.

This does NOT emulate or model the actual sound of any ARP or any other vintage hardware synth, just borrows from the control design, layout and panel design of the Explorer I.


32-bit, so will require jBridge, etc., (or a DAW that will bridge) for use on 64-bit systems.

The link on the website is to a Sync.com folder that also contains the .osm Synthmaker source 'schematics', so anyone with SM, or it's successor Flowstone, can alter it to suit. It's hoped that anyone who makes significant improvements will share the result with everyone.

As this was originally built for my own use only, there are no presets included; I wanted to come at the instrument anew each time, as one did with vintage analog hardware.

Made with SynthMaker
