Oddity3 – Brash, Bold & Beautiful.

Oddity3 is a fresh and hugely enhanced rebuild of our much loved, multi-award winning Oddity software synthesizer. The original Oddity, along with its successor Oddity2, gained heavy praise by fans and critics alike for incredible accuracy and, in the case of Oddity2, a huge range of additions taking the legendary ARP Odyssey into previously unrealized audio realms. Oddity3 retains the fundamental architecture at the heart of previous versions but builds on this in ways that extend its sonic and musical capabilities.

Oddity3 features an improved audio engine, a powerful new Preset Browser, over 250 new presets (plus all the originals), new Distortion and Reverb effects, a Vintage control to add authentic analogue imperfections, four programmable Macros, new and improved performance controls along with three new, fully scalable UI designs. This classic desert island synth just got even better.

A Classic Synth For The 21st Century.

With the sound and character of the original hardware at its core, Oddity3 gives a classic synth a new lease of life. Authentic models of all three original filters, two syncable oscillators, an accurate recreation of the legendary ring modulator, AR and ADSR envelopes, and much more, we've spent countless hours ensuring that Oddity3 still provides a faithful and accurate recreation of one of the most highly revered synths ever.

Over the years we've enhanced these original features extensively, adding monophonic and polyphonic playability, a tunable sub oscillator, our unique X-Modifier technology, onboard effects and voice panning. Now, Oddity3 adds a raft of new features and improvements - a powerful new Preset Browser, expanded performance controls with programmable Macros, Velocity and Polyphonic Aftertouch, a Vintage knob for adding analog-style imperfections, new Distortion and Reverb effects, and more. All of this gives Oddity3 an authentic experience that feels at home in a modern setup.

X-Modifiers - A Sound Design Playground.

Using our unique X-Modifier technology, users can reach new sonic heights with Oddity3. With a unique LFO and Envelope for almost every parameter on the synth, Oddity3 allows you to create hugely complex sounds. And, while the tone and character of the synth remains authentic to the original, the X-Modifiers allow you to take this classic sound to unexplored realms of possibility. This is the odyssey sound on steroids.

From Pretty To Gritty.

When listening to some of the beautiful, soft pads in Oddity3, it would be easy to think that this is a synth with a gentle nature - but make no mistake. Oddity3 is a synth that's just as happy screaming as it is singing. With raw oscillators, gritty filters, screeching hardsync and a gnarly ring mod circuit, the original hardware was made to shred. GForce Oddity3 retains this dirty, edgy character and takes it one step further - enhancing it with new ways to add dirt and grime to your sounds. The new distortion circuit allows you to mutilate and mangle your sounds even further, plus we've also added a Vintage control so you can dial in authentic analog inaccuracies to suit your taste. Sometimes, there really is beauty in imperfection.

Inspiration At The Speed Of Sound.

Oddity3 features our brand new preset browser, which gives you the power to organise your sounds the way you want. With extensive tagging, sorting and search possibilities, it's now quick and easy to find the presets you want. Talking of presets, we've got them by the bucketload. Firstly, we've included more than 250 brand new presets created by our team of GForce sound designers, as well as a number of highly-regarded synthesists. You can also access over 1750 legacy presets from Oddity and Oddity2, which have all been categorised and tagged for easy navigation. Finally, we've also included 66 presets that we faithfully recreated from original patch books. With a total of over 2000 presets at your fingertips, inspiration is just moments away.

In the mid 80's I had an ARP Odyssey, a wonderful synth that I unfortunately sold. But Oddity 3 is exactly as I remember my old faithful except for one thing - it keeps the tuning stable regardless of the temperature.

In addition to this, you can store and use ready-made sound settings. It also has effects that weren't on the original (which you can turn off to make them sound exactly like the original).

This is a great updated emulation of the original and it's approved by the ARP Foundation. This was the original synth used by Herbie Hancock for the baseline in Chameleon. See the other reviews...
