The ARP Odyssey was an analog synthesizer originally produced in 1972 by the American manufacturer ARP Instruments, Inc. that quickly garnered a faithful following among musicians. Well respected for its high value, ease to play and portability, the ARP Odyssey had undergone several improvements during its history and continued to be a long-seller until manufacturing stopped in 1981 due to economic hardships and the digital surge. Loved by a wide range of musicians as a historical classic, its sound can be heard on numerous classic songs.

Now in 2015, KORG has brought back the ARP Odyssey for today. With the advisory assistance of David Friend, the co-founder of ARP Instruments, KORG has completely reproduced the original circuitry for artists looking to recreate classic sounds and explore new ones. Together the engineers at KORG and Arp were able to nailthe sound and feel of the original. Every detail has been carefully considered to stay true to the quality of the original, down to the sophisticated semi-hard case.

The legendary ARP sound is loved to this day. Long stopped, the wheels of history have again begun to move.

Unbelievable! Korg Announces New ARP Odyssey. NOT April Fool Prank!

ARP Odyssey

Tokyo, Japan – February 17, 2014 – KORG INC. is proud to announce that a faithful recreation of the legendary 1970s analog synthesiser, the ARP Odyssey, is being developed by Korg for release later in 2014.

The ARP Odyssey was released in 1972 by ARP Instruments, Inc. and quickly became famous for its unique rich sound and innovative performance controls. It was a staple for many recording and performing musicians worldwide and was used on countless hit records over many years. The Odyssey was one of the highlights of the ARP company and became a long selling product. With slight updates and improvements it was sold through to 1981.

Korg is also proud to welcome Mr David Friend as our chief advisor on the Odyssey. David Friend established ARP Instruments, Inc. along with Alan Robert Pearlman and is a past president of ARP Instruments, Inc. He was also the lead designer of the original Odyssey in addition to designing or co-designing many other products.

After ARP, Mr Friend became a successful technology entrepreneur. In 2010, he was named Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in the Emerging Technology category for the New England Region, he has been a lecturer at MIT’s Sloan School of Management and is now Chairman & CEO of Carbonite, Inc. He has been a trustee of the New England Conservatory and Berklee College of Music.

In the last few years, KORG INC. has released several top selling analog synthesizers such as the monotrons series, the monotribe, the volca series and the hugely successful MS-20 mini, a faithful fully analog recreation of the 1978 MS-20. With Korg’s technology capabilities and planning ability for analog synthesizers, and in collaboration with David Friend, we believe the legendary ARP Odyssey will become a “must have” for an all new generation of music makers.

The ARP Odyssey is scheduled for release in September 2014.

I just bought a Roland SH2000..

sh2000 300x225 I just bought a Roland SH2000..

Roland SH2000

from eBay, for £175.
Now, that’s a RESULT!

(I sold a half-working minikorg for £150, so £175 for a WORKING SH2000 is amazing!)

So now I have a Korg m500 AND an sh2000 – preset madness!

** It was advertised as collection only, but I arranged for a courier to collect it (I asked the seller first, and he agreed to package it). I even mailed the seller the shipping label to stick to the package. **

NerveJam | Korg Monotribe

I just bought a Korg Monotribe!
You know the one, it’s basically a Monotron with a simple drum machine and an onboard sequencer.
Remember the Monotron? Single Oscillator, with a Korg MS-20 filter, and a wacky “ribbon controller” for a keyboard. I’ve had one for ages and it makes some seriously weird noises.

I’d been keeping an eye out for someone to drop the price from the usual £165 + delivery. Finally, someone did. Incidentally, they have another TWO for sale HERE if you’re interested..

Anyway, I’m going to investigate making some tracks with it when it arrives, which will be a TOTAL change from my usual all-VST setup..
