$100 ARP Odyssey

Computer Music - - Reviews / Cm Awards 2018 - Web korg.com For­mat Mac/PC

2018 saw Japanese mega­corp Korg not only fi­nally up­date their Legacy Col­lec­tion of clas­sic synth em­u­la­tion plu­g­ins to be com­pat­i­ble with mod­ern op­er­at­ing sys­tems and Pro Tools (AAX), but also add to it with a vir­tual ver­sion of their 2015 hard­ware re­make of the his­toric ARP Odyssey. In­deed, the Odyssey plugin ac­tu­ally im­proves on its mono/duo­phonic phys­i­cal sib­ling with 16 voices of polyphony. That and the ad­di­tion of ef­fects and an arpeg­gia­tor aside, the crazy, cre­ative, time­less spirit of the orig­i­nal Oddy shines through. A nos­tal­gia trip worth tak­ing.
