The Arp Odyssey has a wonderful history that spans nearly 50 years of popular music. Korg's superb reproduction of this classic synth was done in collaboration with the synth's creator, David Friend, and is a superbly powerful and expressive musical instrument.
The ARP Odyssey was an analog synthesizer originally produced in 1972 by the American manufacturer ARP Instruments, Inc. that quickly garnered a faithful following among musicians. Loved by a wide range of musicians as a historical classic, its sound can be heard on numerous classic songs.
KORG has brought back the ARP Odyssey for today. They have completely reproduced the original circuitry for artists looking to recreate classic sounds and explore new ones. The legendary ARP sound is loved to this day. Long stopped, the wheels of history have again begun to move.
