Korg ARP Odyssey Module Rev1 Duophonic Synthesizer (Black)
Since its appearance in 1972, the ARP Odyssey has been loved by countless musicians as a classic analogue synthesiser. Forty years later, in 2015, with the advisory assistance of David Friend, co-founder of the ARP Instruments company, KORG resurrected the ARP Odyssey with a complete reproduction of the ARP Odyssey’s original circuitry. The ARP sound, which continues to be envied as an iconic analogue synthesiser, was once again back in the hands of today’s musicians. Now, KORG has further broadened the reach of the ARP Odyssey in today’s world by releasing a new model.
The ARP Odyssey Module is a keyboard-less ARP Odyssey with the very same analogue synthesis circuitry that completely reproduces the original. To fit perfectly in today’s DAW-centric music production environments, Korg provide it in a more compact module form. The lineup includes two models, the white Rev1 and the black and orange Rev3, reproducing traditional styling in a cutting-edge tabletop body. The real ARP sound that transcends history is once again available to the world.
The ARP Odyssey Module is a tabletop analogue synth module based on KORG’s revived ARP Odyssey. In its compact, keyboard-less body, it contains the exact same circuitry as the original, making it even easier for you to obtain that rich analogue sound that only a genuine ARP Odyssey can produce. By adding the ARP Odyssey Module to their setup, DAW users can enhance their production environment with powerful analogue sound that cannot be obtained from any plugin. You can also perform in conjunction with a sequencer such as the KORG SQ-1. If you’re a player with a keyboard that you prefer, you can connect the ARP ODYSSEY Module via MIDI to your favorite keyboard and play it to your heart’s content. In addition, the ARP Odyssey Module newly supports MIDI pitch bend.
The ARP Odyssey Module lineup includes the best-known Rev3 design with its characteristic black panel and orange silk-screening, as well as the white-paneled Rev1 design that marks this instrument’s historic beginning. The unique shape of the slider grips, their smooth operating feel, and the layout of the switches all perfectly reproduce the layout of the original despite the compact module design. The body, on the other hand, has been redesigned for its new life in module form, featuring a sturdy steel chassis befitting the weighty sounds produced by this instrument throughout its forty-year history.
