Korg’s new Arp Odyssey Desktop Synthesizer was created in collaboration with David Friend, co-founder of ARP Instruments. The synthesizer’s design boasts a stellar reproduction of the Odyssey’s original circuitry, putting the Arp’s legendary sound at the fingertips of today’s musicians and sound designers. Despite its compact style, the layout of the Odyssey Rev 1 is a perfect reproduction of the original.
In comparison to its predecessor, the Arp Odyssey Rev 1 is lighter, more compact, and features the same classic analog sound. The module was designed for tabletop use and does not feature a keyboard, though it is playable by MIDI In. Users can use the synthesizer in duophonic or monophonic settings and have access to various CV, Gate, and Trigger ins/outs for clever interfacing with other modular gear.
The Rev 1 features a white color scheme.
