Its something of a bizarre state of affairs, Roland release AIRA range - remakes of much of their legacy models and just a couple of days later Korg drop the bomb that they are remaking the Arp Odyssey in conjunction with ARP co founder David Friend.
Expected to be out around September 2014 - yes thats this year! Korg have recently turned their hands to the making of actual mass produced analog circuitry with first the Monotron, and Monotribe range, and thew full remake of the legendary MS-20 synthesizer.
But wait, Korg didnt make the ARP Odyssey right? Yes - thats true but they have hooked up with ARP co-founder David Friend who;s been busy working on other IT and technoogy products - we use his cloud backup service Carboniite here in the office.
Clearly things are working out for Korg and David as its coming later in the year - a full remake of the classic duophonic Odysssey.
We dont know any more about the nuts and bolts of what the new Odyssey will cost or if it will be 3/4 size or whatever, but don't worry we'll be on it in the morning.
We took a look at these really high end modules
