The Arp Odyssey is a duophonic synthesizer lovingly recreated by Korg under the assistance of ARP Instrument co-founder David Friend.
The Arp Odyssey was released in 1972 and has become a legend in its own right. All the original circuit has been reproduced and installed in a new, smaller chassis with slimkeys. The slider section has been upgraded with carefully selector parts in order to ensure a smoother operation than the original.
A duophonic synthesizer, The Odyssey features two VCO offering a choice of Saw and Square waves with FM and Pulse Width Controls. The Filter section includes a low-pass VCF with resonance and a high-pass filter. Korg has augmented the filter section with a new VCF three-way switch designed to offer the choice between all three iteration of the Odyssey, offering different filter characteristics. In addition a new Drive switch is implemented before the VCA to overdrive the Amplification add grit and edge to the synthesizer. Two Envelopes are included with the first one using a simple Attack Release design and the new one a traditional ADSR. Finally the LFO section offers a choice of sine and square waveforms as well as a Sample and Hold with output LAG. Extremely flexible the LFO can control both VCOs independently, Noise generation, but also control the ADSR Envelope for automatic repeat. Further sound design can be achieved with a comprehensive mixer which lets you blend the amount of each oscillators, noise generator but also how much certain modulation attributes affect the sound before the VCA.
The New Arp Odyssey has been updated for modern musicians and producers with the addition of a MIDI input and USB MIDI allowing controlling midi notes On/Off. Additional I/Os are also included with a choice of jack or XLR output, headphone out, Ext Audio In, pedal and portamento footswitch. CV in/outs are also included to sync and control other analogue and modular synthesizers, step sequencers or any other CV enabled Device.
