The black & gold ARP Odyssey FS from Korg is the re-creation of the classic analog synthesizer originally produced in the 1970s and highly regarded for its sharp penetrating sound and rich range of tonal variations. This re-creation is 100% of the original size and features the original circuitry, with some updated features including MIDI and USB.

The synth offers a 37-note, full-sized keyboard with monophonic or duophonic operation. The oscillator section includes two VCOs with sawtooth, square, and pulse waveforms. Additionally, all three revisions of the filter are immediately accessible via a switch and further broaden the tonal palette. Type I (Rev1) is a 12 dB/Oct circuit, while Type II and III (Rev2/3) are 24 dB/Oct, and each type adds distinct flavors and colors to the sound. Both portamento circuits (Rev1 & 2/3) are available as well, while a drive circuit has been added to the VCA, producing distortion and generating a rough and raw sound. All sliders have been updated and are smoother than the original, making the synth uncompromisingly playable.

A variety of functions and modulation possibilities are provided by oscillator sync, pulse-width modulation, sample & hold, a high-pass filter, two types of envelope generators, an LFO, and pitch bend via the proportional pitch controls (PPC). The ARP Odyssey ships with a power adapter, a 1/4" cable, and an 1/8" cable.
