I seem to recall reading somewhere (I think it was in Mark Vail's Vintage Synthesizers book) that Oberheim offered an upgrade kit to the original ARP keyboard which made it duophonic. I seem to recall that the book stated, "the upgrade proved so popular that ARP incorporated the design into later versions of the keyboard."
