ARP Instruments! Remember those? They were most famous for their line of synthesizers in the 70's, but unfortunately, Arp closed its doors in the early 80's due to financial reasons. A sad day indeed, especially for some of their clients, which included Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Elton John, The Grateful Dead and more! Not bad right? Anyways, have no fear, since we realize that you probably can't get your hands on one of these extinct synthesizers, we've gone ahead and brought the dead to life.

The Arp Saw Major and Arp Saw Minor has officially been added to the growing list of instruments in Roc, our music creator. You can find the latest installment in the instruments tool bar, located on the right hand side. This means you now have 24 different sound effects to play with. Use this new sound pack to create a stand alone tune, or add it to your existing songs.

Remember, every instrument, including Arp Saw Major and Minor, is licensed under creative commons attribution, and can be used commercially. This means that you can use any music you've created in Roc (even in a commercial project!) as long as you give Aviary credit.
