The ARP String Synthesizer, also known as the ARP Solina String Synthesizer or sometimes the Solina String Synthesizer, is an ARP Instruments, Inc. synthesizer. It is a hybrid model which combined both the ARP String Ensemble and the ARP Explorer monophonic synthesizer. It was built in Bodegraven, Netherlands. Supposedly only about 100 were ever produced. The addition of the ARP Explorer to the Solina string sounds made for a very powerful combination.

This synth had four keyboard modes:

  • Strings Only
  • Strings through the Explorer low-pass filter
  • Explorer voice combined with the lower Solina keyboard (contrabass and cello)
  • Explorer voice combined with the upper Solina keyboard (viola, violin, trumpet, horn)
  • Variations

    The manufacturer of Solina series, Eminent B.V., also shipped a home organ model, named Solina C112 (with "Explore I" logo), which included the ARP String Synthesizer.
