The ARP ODYSSEY that KORG revived in 2015, designed with the advisory cooperation of David Friend, the co-founder of ARP Instruments Inc., is acclaimed for its extremely reproduction of the sound of the original ARP Odyssey. Based on this revived model, the ARP ODYSSEi is a complete reproduction of the ARP ODYSSEY on the iPad / iPhone.
The circuitry has been reproduced using KORG’s proprietary CMT (Component Modeling Technology), developed over the years starting with the KORG Legacy Collection. Instead of merely simulating the output sound as conventional modeling does, KORG’s CMT is a method for using digital equivalents of the transistors, capacitors, resistors, and other components used in the hardware realm to reconstruct the same signal path digitally. This perfectly reproduces the complex range of sounds and parameters that available only on the ARP ODYSSEY.
