ARP Odyssey



ARP synthesizers are loved by countless musicians for their innovative sound. The many classic models produced from the 1960s to the 1980s had an enormous impact on the subsequent history of synthesizers, and thus on the history of music, so that ARP continues to be remembered as one of the great synthesizer brands. In 1972, the ARP Odyssey appeared. Its appearance established ARP's position as the world's leading synthesizer brand. But now in 2015, ARP is being reborn. The Japanese synthesizer manufacturer Korg welcomes one of the ARP founders, David Friend, as advisor in the resurrection of a classic ARP synthesizer, the ARP Odyssey.

ARP Odyssey Patches


Odysseys (including the reissue) have no electronic way to store patches, so it is common to document the control settings on paper using the ARP Odyssey Facsimile Pad (above), or with photography.

Note: As a rule of thumb, when setting up an Odyssey patch, all switches not noted on the patch sheet are set to the down position and faders not noted should be set to zero.

Here's some interesting ARP Odyssey patches:
