Korg ARP Odyssey Synth


The original ARP Odyssey was a 2VCO duo-phonic instrument. Its most distinctive feature was its sharp, penetrating sound and its rich range of tonal variation.

With a variety of functions and modulation possibilities provided by oscillator sync, sample & hold, pulse width modulation, high-pass filter, two types of envelope generator, and pitch bend using the PPC, it was able to create a versatile range of sounds.

The ARP Odyssey reproduces the sounds of these components at the circuit level. Under the supervision of David Friend, parts were carefully selected and every detail was adjusted to replicate the original unit's distinctive synthesis.

Features

  • A faithful, 86 -scale re-creation of a classic synth
  • 37-note Slimkey keybed (no velocity sensitivity, no aftertouch - just like the original)
  • Monophonic; two voices for duophonic (one oscillator each)
  • Proportional Pitch Control pads; modulation pad
  • White/pink noise generator
  • Portamento speed control
  • Two VCOs with Sawtooth, Square, and Dynamic Pulse waveforms (with PWM)
  • Lowpass filter (resonant): 12 and 24dB/octave; frequency range: 16Hz-16kHz
  • Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA), dynamic range: 80dB
  • Ring Modulator (digital); Sample & Hold
  • ADSR and AR envelope generators
  • Low (1/4" TS) and High (XLR) output jacks; 1/4" TRS headphone jack
  • External Audio Input jack (1/4" TS)
