Korg’s Arp Odyssey MK3 Duophonic Synthesizer was created in collaboration with David Friend, co-founder of ARP Instruments. The synthesizer’s design boasts a stellar reproduction of the Odyssey’s original circuitry, putting the Arp’s legendary sound at the fingertips of today’s musicians and sound designers. Despite its compact style, the layout of the MK3 is a clever update of the original.
In comparison to its predecessor, the Arp Odyssey MK3 is lighter, more compact, and features the same classic analog sound. The synthesizer features a 37-note slimkey keyboard, though it is playable via MIDI In. Users can use the synthesizer in duophonic or monophonic settings and have access to various CV, Gate, and Trigger ins/outs for clever interfacing with other modular gear.
