    The original ARP Odyssey was an analog synthesizer produced in 1972 by American manufacturer ARP Instruments, Inc. that quickly garnered a faithful following among musicians. Well respected for its high value, ease to play and portability, ARP Odyssey had undergone several improvements during its history and continued to be a strong seller until manufacturing stopped in 1981 due to economic hardships and the 'digital surge.' Loved by a wide range of musicians as a historical classic, its sound can be heard on numerous classic songs.

    Korg has completely reproduced the original circuitry and is offering Odyssey in a desktop module format, offering all editing and sound specifications from the keyboards - without the keys! CV/gate is included to interface with analog desktop racks and synths, and USB and MIDI for interfacing with controllers and DAWs. This recreation is a great addition to the studio for artists looking to recreate classic sounds and explore new ones. Every detail has been carefully considered to stay true to the quality of the original. The legendary ARP sound is loved to this day, and now you can use it with your favorite studio keyboard.

    Complete reconstruction of three generations of circuitry
    The distinctive synthesis of ARP Odyssey has been reproduced from the circuit level up. The original ARP Odyssey was a two-VCO duophonic 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 (proportional pitch control) buttons, it was able to create a versatile range of sounds. 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.

    All three filters provided
    Broadly speaking, there were three versions of the original ARP Odyssey divided by the date of production, with the major difference being the filter circuit. The new ARP Odyssey provides all three of these different filter circuits and allows you to select one of them with a single switch. TYPE I (Rev1) is a 12 dB/oct circuit that produces a sharp, punchy sound. TYPE II (Rev2) is a 24 dB/oct filter with great-sounding lows. TYPE III (Rev3) maintains excellent stability even when resonance is raised. These distinctive filters have been reproduced just as they originally were.

    All portamento behaviors provided
    On the original ARP Odyssey, the behavior of portamento when using the transpose function differed between Rev1 and Rev2/3. ARP Odyssey reproduces both of these behaviors and lets you select the desired one with a switch.

    New DRIVE switch
    In order to deliver a more powerful analog sound, a DRIVE switch is provided as a new function. Turning this switch on makes the VCA distort, generating a rough and raw sound.

    More connections
    The connectors provided on the original ARP Odyssey differed by production date, but based on Rev3 of the original, the new ARP Odyssey brings the specifications up to a modern standard. In addition to a MIDI in connector and USB port, Korg provides a headphone jack with adjustable volume. The XLR output jacks, which had been unbalanced, have been changed to noise-resistant balanced outputs.
