ARP ODYSSEY FS | The Legend Returns with Full Size
Published on Jan 11, 2017 ARP
Previously seen here, the full sized KORG ARP Odyssey is officially announced.
"The full-size ARP Odyssey is back in more ways than one! This limited edition series is a true 1:1 recreation of the legend, proudly assembled in the USA, where the ARP story began.
Like the ARP ODYSSEY series that relaunched the brand, and the modules that followed, the FS full-size series offers the same three-filter configuration, plus modern amenities such as an analog drive circuit and MIDI with USB I/o or 5-pin input. The classic rubber pitch and mod pads also return, bigger than ever. All three color versions will be available in 2017!"
"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. Choose from three designs: Rev1, Rev2, or Rev3. 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.
A full-sized ARP ODYSSEY with a standard keyboard
As an alternative to the 86% size ARP ODYSSEY with its compact slim keyboard, we've created the ARP ODYSSEY FS, a long-awaited full-size model with a standard keyboard. Featuring a spacious panel layout with faders that are smooth to operate, and a standard-sized keyboard for excellent playability, it's just what the synthesizer lover or keyboardist has been waiting for. Most of all, its weight and essence are the precise image of the original ARP Odyssey. With analog sound that has already established a firm reputation, it is fair to say that this is a true resurrection of the ARP ODYSSEY. Now you can obtain a full-sized ARP ODYSSEY that's perfect in every area including sound, stability, appearance, and size, but with the reliability of a brand new synth."
