ARP AVATAR analogue synthesizer - Filter Sweep


Published on Nov 27, 2016 Amazing Synth

"Just like Odysseys and the other ARP gear, AVATAR is a genuine analog synthesizer. To my knowledge, the only digital components are guitar module, pink noise and ring modulation.

(I am not even sure whether the guitar module is still in place in this unit. Please tell me if you know).

Back in the day they used through-hole technology to build these instruments, they were manually assembled, bulky and expensive.

Korg ARP Odysseys are different, they are made of surface mount devices (SMD). Automated surface mount technology (SMT) makes them very affordable and light but they don't sound the same either."
