Teaser pictures of the new Korg Odyssey

December 27, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 


Korg has shared this teaser image for the new ARP Odyssey, saying only “Be prepared for a new evolution 1-22-15″. Jan 22 is the opening of the 2015 NAMM Show, so we can assume that the new Korg ARP Odyssey will make its official debut at the event.

Korg announced plans in February that it plans to reissue the ARP Odyssey. At the time, Korg also announced that ARP co-founder David Friend was joining Korg as their chief advisor on the Odyssey.



With Behringer also getting into the game, as announced some days ago, we may have an interesting NAMM show ahead of us :-)

Here I take you on a sound ride with the Korg Sigma, a beautiful and powerful synth of Korg released in 1979.The Korg Sigma is here driven by a sequence from the Analogue Solutions Oberkorn.

The Sigma is an interesting bi-timbric synthesizer consisting of two sections: a genuine analog “Synthe” and a Preset “Instrument” section. All together, there are 19 presets on it that give a variety of sounds. There are 11 presets for the “Instrument” section which include fuzz guitar, electric bass, clavi, string, flute, double reed, trumpet, hammered percussion, etc. And there are 8 presets for the “Synthe” section that give variable waveforms (square, pulse, sawtooth) in different pitch ranges (from 32′ to 4′). Each preset has its own rotary control to vary its sounds. The Sigma is also unique for its ability to combine the synth and instrument sections for a nicer, layered synth sound or effect. While the synth section is nice, the instrumental sounds (tuba, trumpet, strings, guitar, etc.) are pretty darn bad, and only get interesting when mixed with the “Synthe” section sounds.


Cool joysticks add multi-dimensional control. Use one to control pitch, noise and vibrato and use the second joystick to edit the low-pass and hi-pass voltage controlled filters! There is also an “Effect” section which is for Vibrato, Portamento, Sample and Hold, Noise, Key Hold, Multiple Trigger and Ring Modulator (each with it’s own rotary control to vary it’s sound). Even though it has a switch labelled “Ring Mod,” it’s actually a cross-mod. It lets you cross modulate between the instrument and Synth sections.

Ultimately, however, a basic design, limited edit-ability and a pure lack of memory and MIDI leave the Sigma far behind on the evolutionary scale (although it does let you play a quarter-tone scale). The Sigma has a metal music stand that slides out the back to hold your sheet music suggesting it may have been aimed at hobbyists

Arturia Minibrute – arpeggio and improvised melody
Volca Keys – pads and bass
A simple arp made from a sequence on the Minibrute, then random notes from a chord played by hand over the top. Pad sections were made with the Volca Keys in polyphonic mode, using a midi keyboard to play it.
