Korg ARP Odyssey Singing Patch Jam featuring PX-5S, Alesis SR18
Published on Feb 1, 2017 Doug Plate
"This is a little jam song I did to demonstrate an Odyssey patch that shows off some of the not-so-obvious modulations that give this synth its unique sound. The backing track features a stock Alesis SR18 bass/drums pattern and the amazing sound of the Casio Privia PX-5S. Enjoy! Also featured are the Alesis Quadraverb and Tascam DP-008EX digital multi-track recorder. The Odyssey patch settings are shown in the video."
Korg ARP Odyssey "Singing" Patch
Published on Jan 27, 2017 Doug Plate
"This is a patch that has a subtle vocal quality. I think the patch settings are fairly visible in the video, but some notes: Osc 1 is in it's lowest possible in-tune tuning with Osc 2 synced and several octaves higher. A little touch of S/H on the Osc 2 freq. and the filter freq. that is triggered by the keyboard to add a little random variation to the patch. Gate Out patched to Trig In on the back panel for single-triggering (legato playing doesn't re-trigger the envelope). Also CV Out patched to CV In for true monophonic keyboard response. I switch between Sine and Square wave LFO on Osc 1 and use the slider as modulation control. Also use Osc 1 ADSR modulation slider for pitch bend in some places instead of the pads. The echo effect is provided by Alesis Quadraverb.
This was a very expressive patch and so, as usual, I got carried away and made this video WAY TOO LONG!"
