Staying true to ARP Odyssey FS, this kit uses the same analog circuitry, preserving the original warm and rich sounds we've all grown to love. The kit also features all the original specs of the vintage Rev. 3 model with a full-size keyboard, black panel design and orange lettering. To facilitate assembly a pictorial guide is included; no technical knowledge or soldering is needed.
A full-sized ARP Odyssey with a standard keyboard
Featuring a spacious panel layout with faders that are smooth to operate and a standard-sized keyboard for excellent playability, this is just what the synthesizer lover or keyboardist has been waiting for. Most of all, its weight and essence are the precise image of the original ARP Odyssey. With analog sound that has already established a firm reputation, it is fair to say that this is a true resurrection of the ARP Odyssey. Now you can obtain a full-sized ARP Odyssey that's perfect in every area including sound, stability, appearance and size, but with the reliability of a brand new synth.
The distinctive synthesis of the vintage 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 and hold, pulse width modulation, high pass filter, two types of envelope generator and pitch bend using the PPC pads, it was able to create a versatile range of sounds. ARP Odyssey FS Kit reproduces the sounds of these components at the circuit level.
Filters from all three vintage models provided
Broadly speaking, there were three generations of the original ARP Odyssey divided by their dates of production, with the major difference being the filter circuits. ARP Odyssey FS Kit provides all three of these different filter circuits and allows you to select them with a single switch. Type I (Rev1) is a 12dB/octave circuit that produces a sharp, punchy sound. Type II (Rev2) is a 24dB/octave 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.
ARP Odyssey FS Kit is a one-of-a-kind collector's instrument. To commemorate the unique experience of building it yourself, it is distinguished from any other ARP Odyssey with its own serial number engraved into an elegant metal plate.
