Korg ARP Odyssey Rev2 Black & Gold Ltd Edition Product Description
The ARP Odyssey is a complete revival of the classic analog synthesizer that transformed its age. Well respected for its high value, ease of playing and portability, the ARP Odyssey is present on countless songs throughout history. Korg and original ARP experts have now carefully reproduced the original circuitry - every detail has been carefully considered to stay true to the quality of the original. This black panel with gold-printed Rev2 design has been revived as a limited-edition model.
The distinctive synthesis of the ARP Odyssey has been reproduced from the circuit level up with the original founder as a key advisor. 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 and 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 (founder), parts were carefully selected and every detail was adjusted to replicate the original unit's distinctive synthesis.
