An Arp, short for Arpeggiator, is a device that causes a synthesizer to play the all of the notes in a chord in an arpeggio, rather than in harmonies. It was frequently present on monophonic synthesizers, and was used in early Italo Disco to create that "galloping synth" effect.
The modular synthesizer had an arp module, allowing it to play chord patterns which were impossible beforehand.
