The ARP Odyssey synth vintage is going up. He always does the second derrire the Minimoog. Yet even if the filter is not as good as the Minimoog, it has other qualities that make a gal, but in a different kind.
OSC 2, 2 ENV (ADSR + CA), 1 LFO, ring modulation, Pink Noise / White, FM, PM, AM, trs complte modulation, channel 2 filters (HPF one behind the 24 dB).
In fact it is identical to the MK2 but with a new design and a different filter.
Audiofanzine: the price of this synth argus is 1000 EUR, not 150 as I see above! A 150 I achte 10!
Obviously trs simple to use like all vintages.
Super sound. This synth rises because possde a grain that is becoming increasingly fashionable. It may make distorted sounds quite dirty! Unlike the Minimoog is classy in a suit tie, the Odyssey it is poorly ras and send the goat! This is like home
It may make good bass but not as round and deep as the Mini. Against it by more possibilities. It is more and agrssif dchire more than the Minimoog.

Once they have changed the capacity of an ARP 2600. In fact the Odysey ARP 2600 is a pre-patch. So the sound is the same.
The problem with the Odyssey is its construction. It is made of iron. It is heavy. But it is also full of sliders (slides).
These buttons have become untraceable and caps are also found. It is rare to find one with everything!
In addition, the keyboard is crap. You can find blushing (small cahoutchouc permetent which the notes are amortized) with age, but most were keyboards play and tap the keys move in all directions!
The glissires attract dusts and slipping at all (like sh-101). Mfiance So, if you see an Odyssey 600 EUR, try, because if it's dirty or glissires nazes keys, it will be hard to do OPG, or so expensive!
The specialist in the Odyssey in Europe is here: http://www.sainteric.nl/
The specialist in in France called Jean Loup Dierstein (of Paris) you will find in the yellow pages ...
This problem is not with the Sequential Circuits, Moog and other synths knobs ...
Other than that it's a great synth over the SH-101 and other small mono, the likes of a Minimoog, in second position, but still ... the future of the Odyssey is loaded with clouds, with the problem of building it, he probably will do more to function normally in a few years.
Namely, a non rvis Odyssey is EUR 600-800. An Odyssey rvis ie with the power supply changes, the filter and the tuning of CSOs, the blushing keys and pots graisss with silicone, it is worth at least 1200 EUR for occasion. Mfiez you fake deals!
