Assembled in America, and available to the world once again. The long-awaited full-size ARP Odyssey is now available in a limited edition. The revival of the ARP Odyssey originated from a desire to reconstruct a legendary synthesizer of the 1970s, faithfully reproducing its original analog form while combining respect for history with an update for today's music production environment; it first took shape as the ARP Odyssey, completely analog but in a more compact 86%-sized unit.
Korg's next move is an even more faithful recreation of the original ARP Odyssey: it's the full-sized ARP Odyssey FS. With a standard keyboard and a body that emanates a sense of solidity, it delivers great playability and a persuasive stage presence. Just like its original version, the instrument is assembled in the United States, faithfully carrying on the quality, sound, and spirit of the original. Only a small number of each is being produced. Don't miss your chance to obtain a full-sized ARP Odyssey – an instrument with decades of soul.
True analog sound generated by a complete replication of the original ARP Odyssey's circuitry
Pitch modulation and pulse width modulation can be controlled
Pitch is variable over a wide range of 20 Hz--2 kHz.
Oscillator sync provides sharp, great-sounding overtones extending into a high range
Noise generator provides two noise types: white and pink
Powerful LFO can be used as a modulation source for the oscillator or filter, or as a trigger source for sample & hold
Ring modulator generates metallic sounds with rich overtones
The three types of low-pass filter found on different production runs of the original ARP Odyssey are all provided
A wide variety of modulation sources such as S/H, LFO, ADSR, and AR can be used to modulate the filter
A high-pass filter is provided following the low-pass filter, giving you even broader sound design possibilities
A new function, the Drive switch generates extreme and aggressive sounds
Envelope generator with two types: ADSR and AR. This can be used not only for the VCA but also to modulate the filter or oscillator
Keyboard: 37-note (standard key or full size key, no velocity sensitivity, no aftertouch)
Maximum polyphony: 2 voices for duophonic; normally monophonic
Controllers: transpose positions 2 octaves down, normal, 2 octave up
Noise generator: noise spectrum types (white and pink)
