features

  • 2VCO. The duophonic design allows two different pitches to sound when you play two notes. 
  • The high degree of pitch stability for which the ARP Odyssey was remarkable in its time has been perfectly reproduced. 
  • Pitch is variable over a wide range of 20 Hz--2 kHz.
  • Pitch modulation and pulse width modulation can be controlled.
  • Oscillator sync provides sharp, great-sounding overtones extending into a high range.
  • Noise generator provides two noise types: white and pink.
  • Powerful LFO can be used as a modulation source for the oscillator or filter, or as a trigger source for sample & hold.
  • Ring modulator generates metallic sounds with rich overtones.
  • The distinctive S/H MIXER lets you easily create sample & hold sounds by using the oscillator or noise generator as a source that's triggered by the LFO or keyboard.
  • The three types of low-pass filter found on different production runs of the original ARP Odyssey are all provided. With a single switch you can select any one of these filters with their differing characteristics: TYPE I (Rev1) is a 12 dB/octave filter with a sharp and punchy sound, TYPE II (Rev2) is a 24 dB/octave filter that's great for thick low sounds, and TYPE III (Rev3) features excellent stability even when the resonance is increased.
  • A wide variety of modulation sources such as S/H, LFO, ADSR, and AR can be used to modulate the filter.
  • A high-pass filter is provided following the low-pass filter, giving you even broader sound design possibilities.
  • A new function, the DRIVE switch generates extreme and aggressive sounds. 
  • VCA GAIN slider leaves the note sustaining. Ideal for sound design.
  • Envelope generator with two types: ADSR and AR. This can be used not only for the VCA but also to modulate the filter or oscillator.
