ARP Odyssey: the legendary analog synthesizer released by ARP Instruments in 1972.
The ARP Odyssey which Korg brought back in 2015 was designed with the advisory assistance of ARP Instruments cofounder David Friend. In that model, Korg was able to nail the sound of the original ARP Odyssey. Rather than using generic modeling techniques that simulate output sound, KORG digitized the transistor, condenser, and resistor used in the hardware model. We used those digitized components to reconstruct the same circuits as the hardware. With this method, KORG has completely reproduced the complex sound and parameter characteristics which are born from the entirety of the ARP ODYSSEY's circuits.
The software includes the 3 different filters originating from the different dates of production and the drive circuitry which were features of the hardware ARP ODYSSEY brought back by KORG. It has also been newly equipped with the long-awaited Voice Assign Mode which makes chord playing possible, an arpeggiator which can be minutely programmed as with a sequencer, and an effects unit which can bring variegated transformations to your sound. Also, you can switch between the three designs of ARP Odyssey which are different based on the date of production. In addition to the Rev3's iconic black panel with orange silk-screening, you can get the Rev1's white panel and the Rev2's black panel with gold silk-screening.
