“I know very little about this piece besides that it doesn’t seem to be functioning, though the power light turns on.

Some of the sliders on the left panel are also very stiff and barely seem to be moving.

This is sold as is, it could be the simplest solder fix or something I am missing but I am in the midst of moving and don’t have time to find out for myself. ” Link

arp_pro_soloist “Arp Pro soloist powers up, works well with a few exceptions I will note. All notes play, however, the “aftertouch” isn’t functioning correctly. A tech friend believes the “aftertouch pad” is dirty as it does work for the high D note properly. I could have this unit fixed and sell it for more but I figure I will allow the buyer to either fix it for themselves or hire a trusted tech. Other blemishes are that there is one fader knob missing and ONE of the voices seems to not be working (I think English horn) (probably the knob since all the other wave forms are working correctly) some keys stick slightly (also probably a cleaning issue) but they don’t stick so much to not be able to use it as it stands now. If you turn the aftertouch off you’d never know there was anything wrong otherwise. Also the “high” output (RCA) Is loose. The bottom is intact (hasn’t gotten wet) (warning sticker intact) cosmetically it’s beautiful no deep scratches that I can find at all keys as well. I could give it a good cleaning but again I’ll let the buyer do that. All knobs move well. Some of the faders seem a little sticky (if I were going to keep it I’d probably replace with the nifty LED) fader upgrade available on eBay. Also in one of the photos it seems that one of the faders (first) is bent. This is not the case. The fader knob was “off” I replaced it and showed new picture. I just included both. Note that the faders as well as all the other controls function correctly. (Octave etc).” Link

ARP, Pro Soloist @ 20 July 2016, Comments Off on ARP Pro Soloist

pro_soloist “This unit just received a complete overhaul that took a whopping 23 hours (!). The filter module was defective, as is common with these at this point in time. Since many parts were going out of spec, we replaced all parts since we wanted it to sound like it should and to be reliable as far into the future as possible. We also recapped the power supply and power line, cleaned all switches and sliders and connectors, rebuilt the keyboard = replaced all bushings with new ones, cleaned key chassis, keys, bus bars, J wire key contacts, performed necessary repairs and, finally, recalibrated. This was a huge investment but the end result is an instrument that is in top working order and better than the rest.” Link

pro_soloist” You are bidding on an ARP Pro Soloist Model 2701 Synthesizer, s/n 27-924. I bought this keyboard new at Ace Music in Miami FL. back in the 1970’s (unsure what year). It has been in my basement unused for probably 25+ years. I just plugged it in and with some coaxing it worked! It will need some TLC (cleaning, minor cosmetic repair) but overall I think it is in great shape for its age. I will consider reasonable offers. Thanks for looking!” Link

pro soloist “ARP Pro Soloist 2701 version. Excellent working condition and also in very good physical condition. Purchased new in 1977, I am the original purchaser of this unit, it has never been out of my possession. Retired from live use in 1981. Some sliders are slightly stiff but work fine. Undoubtably, this unit could use a good electronic cleaning, but, as far as I can tell, it’s working great. All touch effects seem to be working as new; not all touch effects are audible on all patches, I assume this is by design based upon the organic nature of that particular patch and not a defect. Like most analog synths, it takes a few minutes to warm up. The only service to the unit has been a cleaning of the keyboard mechanism. It has never experienced a breakdown and thus has never been repaired or modified. The electronics are completely virgin. It’s a great unit but needs a new home with someone that has time to play and appreciate it ” Link

usedprosolist” Arp Pro Soloist, inkl. Thomann flightcase. Serviced about two years ago, everything still works EXCEPT for the clarinet patch.. Could be dust, as the lower voice on the same button works, but not that particular sound. I will see if I can figure it out, but I am not a tech. Otherwise all working, sounds, effects, portamento, aftertouch etc.. 120 v. cable 240 v. adapter incl. Print on synth has faded, which makes it difficult to read, but otherwise top notch. ” Link

pro soloist” Selling my ARP Pro Soloist 2701 Synthesizer. This synth is in great shape for being 40 years old. All keys work, aftertouch works (which is a rare find for the pro soloist), all preset switches work. Only flaws are it’s missing the slider cap for the portamento slider and the very top B key has a tiny small crack in it, but it doesn’t effect the playability of the instrument. Also, the two wooden panel on the sides are kind of loose and could be tightened. Auction does not come with case or keyboard stand, just the synth. Because I do not have a case, I am making this a local pickup only auction mostly because the synth is very fragile and I believe could be damaged in shipment no matter how well it’s packed” Link

” Got this from an original owner. Not a lot of info is available online, and these did not make it over to the states often. The Arp Synth can be seen going on Ebay for around 1000 dollars. It powers up but makes makes no noise. The Organ seems to be about 75 percent functioning with a few knobs not functioning. All the original paperwork / receipts are included. Both are in excellent condition and most likely need to just be taken to a proper tech.” Link

” Arp pro soloist restoration project. This is another project that i don’t have anymore time for. It powers on and plays, but only 12 of the preset patches work. Only the volume effect seems to work correctly with aftertouch. The port/glide function does work. They keyboard plays really well. It’s been totally rebuilt with new keybushings and a new touch sensor. The keys and sensor are all aligned pretty well, but could use a little bit of adjustment on the last few keys on the far left side. Just so the keys touch the sensor a little better before they hit the case so it triggers with less pressure. This item needs some troubleshooting on the voices mainly. What works, works and sounds great. The process is described in the service manual for finding out what chips/connections/and components are dead by a process of elimination. I just don’t have time to figure out what’s actually going on with this unit. Cosmetic condition is fair. Expect some cosmetic blemishes in the paint and a little tape residue on the right top side. Someone drilled a small hole on the far right side in what looks like an attempt to attach one of the sides better. The sides are in pretty good shape and attached well, but they still need to be attached a little better. This is a common problem with these units. A lot of people drill out the sides so they can attach bigger brackets to keep them in-place. It’s a great sounding keyboard but needs some more attention to become fully working.” Link

“Zur Auktion steht hier nun dieser Synthesizer der Marke ARP “ProSoloist” mit einer Anleitung sowie einem Schaltplan und einem originalen Werbeheften aus der damaligen Zeit, achso und dem dazu gehördigen Notenhalter aus Acrylglas. Das Gerät wurde von meinem Onkel sehr gepflegt, alles ist noch original und wie neu vorhanden, sogar der Notenhalter ist noch mit dabei und ohne Kratzer.

Muss wohl laut Internet ein recht rares Model sein. Habe alle Tasten und Schalter ausprobiert, funktioniert offenbar alles einwandfrei, spiele selber Klavier, es kommen saubere Töne aus dem Gerät, habe es für einen Test extra an einen Verstärker angeschlossen. Mein Onkel hat diesen Syntheziser kurz vor seinem Tod (laut Rechnung im Dezember 2013) bei einem Fachmann zum Service gehabt.

Ein Service Heft mit Schaltunterlagen ist mit dabei sowie ein Werbeheft! Alles im guten neuwertigen Zustand!” Link

“Good Condition

All presets works
All notes work

Had replacement power switch

New VCF installed by Phil at CMS a few years back. The new filter is the CMS brand. Some cracked PCB traces were recently fixed as the bad traces were causing some of the presets not to function. All function as they should now. Slider posts are broken off. I use a small pencil to adjust. The slider board could be positioned closer to the chassis or the shafts/sliders replaced for easier use of the sliders. These are rare and hardly come up for sale. Touch Sensitivity option is not working. These early models used pads that wore out rather quickly. Other options are available and I can recommend a good tech if you would like to explore them.” Link

” For your consideration is a good condition rare ARP soloist with the original moog filter chip.
Needs a touch tlc, the upper/lower voice selector switch works but could be replaced if you want, the portamento slider is really sticky, it works but will need fixing at some point, I can’t seem to get the vibrato to work, not sure if it’s user error. It has a little ware on the txt (see photos)
Even with these little imperfections this synth sounds SERIOUSLY wicked! Basically a preset mini moog!!!” Link

“The lovely ARP Pro Soloist synthesizer is for sale.
This beautiful sounding synthesizer was professionally serviced in Holland recently. So no technical issues, everything works on this unit.
The unit was not repainted, the drawings and the text on it looks as in the pictures. The body is in good condition, normal signs of usage after more than 40 years (!). Three plastic caps from the presets are missing, and the volume slider cap was replaced. I think that the bottom was replaced. Check the pictures for details.
Overall, decent looking, 100% working – as from my tests.
Analog, vintage, and very warm sound, very deep bass when it comes to the brass presets.
The model number is 2071.” Link

“Since you’re here you know what this is . If fully functional these fetch well over a 1000 dollars. Price has been adjusted because of some issues. I do not have the time, resources, money, or patience to fix it.

It is in great overall condition to be 40 years old. all keys, switches, and sliders are intact .

All sounds work, with the exception of Oboe tab.

Volume, Vibrato, and Repeat Touch Sensor Effects work fine. Vibrato/Repeat

Speed knob works also.

Wow and Growl effects are more pronounced on some sounds than others.

Touch Sensor Effects work on all keys except bottom 3 .

Brilliance Touch Sensor Effect doesn’t seem to affect the sound. Brilliance slider

works fine.

Turning on the Pitch Bend Touch Sensor Effect sometimes lowers pitch 1/2 step.

There is an intermittent pitch drift that seems to go away after the unit has been on awhile.

Portamento Speed slider is inconsistent…sometimes there is still portamento when it is all the way down.” Link

“Here is a vintage ARP Pro Soloist/DGX Model 2720 analog synthesizer. All functions work, including the aftertouch.

In preparation for sale this synth had the following service work performed:

interior cleaned
all electrolytic and tantalum capacitors replaced with high temperature/long life Nichicon or Vishay capacitors.
sliders cleaned and lubricated
keyboard buss bar and contacts cleaned
power cord replaced
1/4″ jacks replaced
XLR jack replaced
full calibration

The paint on the rear panel has a rough texture, the original smoked plexiglass music rest is missing, and there is a hole in masonite bottom. The original slider knobs are also included. These were removed at one point and replaced with plastic slider caps to keep from losing them during transport to gigs.” Link

Touch sensitivity controls include vibrato, volume, brilliance, growl, wow, pitchbend, and the aftertouch is working very well on this unit. It’s an incredibly expressive and awesome sounding synth. In very good condition with no scratchy pots or key contacts etc. The Pro Soloist has been used extensively by artists such as Genesis, Herbie Hancock, Gary Numan, Vangelis, and countless others.
