#NAMM2015

The ARP ODYSSEY – one of the most unique and coveted analog synthesizers ever created. More than 40 years have passed since the original turned the synth world on its ear. Now in 2015, this powerful and flexible duophonic synth has been reborn.

Korg, Inc., in partnership with the founders of ARP, have worked to painstakingly capture every nuance and esthetic of the original. Like the MS-20 Mini before it, this is the true-analog recreation of a legend -from Korg – a music company steeped in over 50 years of synth history.
