"Korg Announces ARP Odyssey in Desktop Module Format

Legendary analog ARP Odyssey reborn as a convenient synthesizer module

Melville, NY - - September 1, 2016 - - Korg brings back the unmistakable sound of the legendary ARP Odyssey in a desktop module format with ARP Odyssey Modules; offering users all the editing and sound-shaping parameters from the keyboard versions! To fit perfectly in today's DAW and desktop hardware-centric music production environments, this compact module form has CV/GATE included to interface with analog desktop racks and synths, USB and 5-pin MIDI for interfacing with controllers and DAWs. The lineup includes two models, the white Rev1 and the black and orange Rev3, reproducing traditional styling.

'The ARP Odyssey Module makes it even easier for users to obtain and integrate the distinctive analog sound that only a genuine ARP Odyssey can produce,' stated James Sajeva, Technology Director for Korg USA, Inc. 'By adding the ARP Odyssey Module to their setup, users can enhance their production and performance environments with fun and powerful, hands-on editing and the true-analog Odyssey sound that cannot be replicated from any plugin,' added Sajeva.

Since its appearance in 1972, the ARP Odyssey has been loved by countless musicians as a classic analog synthesizer. Forty years later, in 2015, with the advisory assistance of David Friend, co-founder of the ARP Instruments company, Korg resurrected the ARP Odyssey with a complete reproduction of the ARP Odyssey’s original circuitry. The ARP sound, which continues to be envied as an iconic analog synthesizer, was once again back in the hands of today's musicians. Now, Korg has further broadened the reach of the ARP Odyssey in today's world by releasing these new models.
