Originally Launched in 1972, the 2800 series (or Odyssey as it became known commercially) was ARP's answer to the hugely successful Minimoog - which appeared two years earlier - and was quickly adopted by many top players, including jazz-funk-fusion gods Herbie Hancock and George Duke.
Korg's emulation nails the sound of the original, and goes further with some welcome new enhancements. What's great is that the Oddy is now even more versatile sonically, and can easily make subs, screaming or rich leads, dirty noises, snappy drums and FX. Having MIDI and USB connectivity is great, too.
It's amazing to have a new, reliable and - above-all - authentic-sounding Odyssey in our hands, and we're genuinely excited to see where Korg will take the ARP brand going forward.45 Stars
