The ARP Odyssey is one of the most influential analog synths of all time, and has long been one of the go to classic synths for musicians and vintage synth enthusiasts alike. Now resurrected by Korg, the classic sounds of the ARP Odyssey are now available in this smaller synth unit, offering the same classic analog tone in a more compact and reliable unit.
Based around a 2VCO duophonic design, the ARP Odyssey is a modern recreation of the classic duophonic synth that incorporates aspects of all three original models. Seamlessly integrating with your DAW through USB, MIDI, 1/4" Jack and XLR outputs, the Arp Odyssey opens you up to no end of new tonal possibilities. The Korg ARP Odyssey utilises the same circuitry as the original and shares many of the same functions. The pitch of the oscillators is variable over a wide range and can be easily modulated with the original spec rubber pad Proportional Pitch Control.
A variety of low pass and high pass filtering options are easy to experiment with, as well as a harmonically rich ring modulator effect and drive for getting some powerful naturally saturated synth sounds.
