Korg ARP ODYSSEY FS Duophonic Synthesizer

The ARP Odyssey is back. Again, but this time, it is  all grown up.. the Limited Edition, full size ARP Odyssey FS. The full-sized Korg ARP Odyssey FS feature a standard keyboard, a completely analog signal path. There are 3 designs to choose from Rev1, Rev2 or Rev3 – each with all three classic filters included:

Just like the original, Odyssey is a two-oscillator beast featuring saw and pulse waveforms, sync, FM and PWM, plus a noise generator. Two filters are onboard – high-pass and resonant low-pass, the second switchable between models of all three Revisions – and modulation options consist of an LFO, two envelopes, and sample + hold.

Unlike the duophonic hardware, Odyssey can be switched between monophonic, duophonic and polyphonic modes, with up to eight voices of unison. Further departures from physical reality include a 16-step arpeggiator, a bank of six effects; Distortion, Phaser, Chorus/Flanger/Ensemble, EQ, Delay and Reverb, and a pair of X/Y pads for real-time manual manipulation of two parameters each from an extensive list.

Ultimately, it is the sound that counts. Odyssey superb sound, doing a stellar job of recreating those famously edgy oscillators and that razor sharp low-pass filter.
