Korg to develop a new ARP Odyssey

February 17, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 


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. – See more at: http://www.korg.com/us/news/2014/0217/#sthash.E2XWNMxZ.dpuf

Korg Monotribe x2 – Berlin School style “How To”

February 17, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

‘thainmlh’ explores making Berlin School style synth music using a couple of Korg Monotribe synthesizers and a pair of Electro Harmonix Memory Toy analog delay pedals, background video description below:

A follow up to my video “Korg Monotribe x2 – Berlin School Example” which has had over 50,000 views at this point (much to my surprise…)
Again we use two Korg Monotribe Analog Synthesizers (with built in sequencers) slaved together for 1970′s style Berlin School sequences, This time, it is a “how to” in an attempt to answer the many questions posted to the original video. (This has higher audio quality)

KORG EPS-1 String Machine/E-Piano 1983

February 17, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Korg EPS-1 with a delay effect from the Roland DEP-5.

EPS comes from “Electronic Piano & Strings”. The fully analog EPS-1 is one of the few touch sensitive string machines. It is a quite long keyboard. It has not only strings – it also has a piano section with several (non mixable) presets. On the piano section you can add a stereo effect (TREMOLO or CHORUS, both with parameters for SPEED and INTENSITY). Both sections have an equalizer.

KORG Lambda recreated for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot has introduced Lambda, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt featuring the sounds of the Korg Lambda ES50 poly-synthesizer.

The original Lambda, produced in 1979, was a preset-based synthesiser with genuine polyphony, two banks of preset tabs, and some unusual (and musically useful) touches like two filter circuits, one dedicated to the Brass patch; a separate key-click control for the Electric Piano patch; a global filter; and, unusually for its time, a stereo “chorus-phase” effect which output on twin jacks. This stereo effect, plus detunable oscillators in the synth section, gave the Lambda a typically rich, thick analogue sound and made it a coveted classic.

The Rhythmic Robot version builds on the capabilities of the original but allows the user to switch in a “vintage” mode, restricting the software to the hardware’s behaviour, for creating authentic patches. The more modern updates to the original include resonance on the global filter circuit, a full ADSR amp envelope, a dedicated AR envelope for the percussive sounds, a battery of additional vintage-style effects, velocity sensitivity and individual level trims for the preset patches – allowing combinations of sound impossible on the original.
