Monday morning gear time – KORG/ARP ODYSSEY/MS-20 MINI/ SQ-1 STEP SEQUENCER

Background video description:

Finally an opportunity to tweak my new ARP ODYSSEY a bit as the MS-20 chugs out a simple bass step sequence on the SQ-1. LOVING this new ARP! My 79′ ODDY was never this easy to play. I got used to the MS-20 Mini’s keys this past year, so it was no problem adjusting to the SlimKeys of the Oddy. They actually have great playability and make the package for more useable than the heavier and clunky ARP keys. My original ARP crackled on the sliders and protested under heavy use by drifting in tune religiously. I love the three filter revisions. This demo utilizes the #3 revision and is very nasaly. There is a lot going on with the drum machines as the Volca and TR-707 hiss their cymbals, the CR-78 is DYN sync’d to the TR-707 tapping out latin bongo’s to the SP-1200 bass and snare. The SP-404SX is adding more cymbals and handclaps. Everything is synced to the MTC being directed by the SQ-1.

Oddity2 – synthesizer instrument modelled on the legendary ARP Odyssey

December 5, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

gforce_oddity2_thumb

GForce has announced the release of Oddity2, a synthesizer instrument modelled on the legendary ARP Odyssey, manufactured between 1972 and 1981.

Sporting a new livery based on the final revision Odyssey, Oddity2 takes the character and operational architecture of the original and, via a wave of enhancements, transports the spirit of the original into a new dimension.

While the duophonic and monophonic modes have been retained, Oddity2 now also offers a monophonic legato mode which wasn’t evident on the Odyssey, plus a Polyphonic Mode. Now finally it’s possible to stop wondering what the Odyssey’s classic tones would sound like within the context of chord based structures, and put it into practice. Everything from spiky and resonant textures to lush and warm pads sounds can either be programmed from Oddity2’s intuitive controls or simply dialled up via the accompanying presets.

Furthermore, via three filter modes and an additional oscillator, Oddity2 can sound as versatile and punchy as its main rival back in the day.

Oddity2 doesn’t stop there either, in order to overcome the original instrument’s limitation of a single LFO, they’ve also added the ability to apply an additional LFO and ADSR to almost any of the main Oddity2 sliders, which gives the instrument almost unrivalled versatility and depth when it comes to sound design options.

Additional improvements over its predecessor include an on-board delay, spread or random pan modes, patch morphing via beats or seconds, program change recognition and implementation of the two octave transpose switch for dynamic real-time performances.

Oddity2 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is currently on sale for £99 GBP inc VAT. The upgrade from Oddity is £49 GBP inc VAT.
