ARP Odyssey vs. Minimoog: Funk Bass Face-Off

Published on Sep 22, 2016 mootbooxle

"ARP Odyssey (Korg) and Minimoog Model D (reissue) go head-to-head in a funk bass showdown. Which one wins?
Both have been used for basslines on countless hit records. I love them both!

I was using the Mk1 Filter on the Odyssey (I prefer my ARP to sound like an ARP, plus it's what Herbie Hancock and George Duke used).
Drums are Oberheim DMX.

ARP Odyssey vs. Minimoog ROUND 2: The Rematch!

Published on Oct 4, 2016 mootbooxle

"Thank you, everyone, for your comments on the ARP Odyssey vs. Minimoog Funk Bass Face-Off! I decided that it would be a good idea to do another round with a more even comparison - the sounds are not 100% identical, but they're closer, and I basically played the same bass line on both synths (although I got carried away with the Moog ;P). To further level the playing field, the Odyssey was using the Mk2 (Moog clone) filter, and I defeated the envelope retriggering by patching Gate Out to Trig In to duplicate the Minimoog's legato response.

Which one did you like better?"
