I bought my Chroma about one year after it first come out. I played one in my favorite music store and was mesmerized by its sound. I had not planned to spend a fortune on a synth, but I guess that was my first serious GAS attack!
I bought it right away.
A while later, I also bought an Apple IIe and the Chroma computer interface. No mouse, no graphics... but there was nothing like it back then. Of course, they were going to come up with MIDI... :rolleyes:
I sold it a few years ago, after twenty years of honoured service... I had bad dreams about it for more than an year. Really.
Nowadays, I have big hopes for that TimewARP 2600 (when it's available for PCs). It could fulfil the original promise of a polyphonic, programmable ARP 2600.
