Already at Sonic Core Design was very strong showing in detail about the ergonomics of the Odyssey MK3. Large, deep shade wearing a discreet, understated and classy synth attracts attention by his side 'retro-patient'. Casually it plays on the desire to put his finger on it. The gear is held in a solid metal casing and surrounded by a grove of good taste. The various sliders are mild enough to touch and buttons too. My only criticism is somewhat fragile (do not press too hard to clog the key). On this point Prodyssey has been extremely well cared for.
Its use makes it a very educational and exciting synth, like the original in fact. The sound editing is done very easily with two buttons to press.
The sounds are ... Obviously very, very close to the Arp Odyssey MKIII and even if you do not feel the potato from the original, it must be admitted that his double is doing pretty well. I was a little skeptical about the bass and some modulations, but in the end it got pretty impressed. Those wishing to weigh down the sound will have no difficulty in passing its signal in a filter or other analog compressor. Effect guaranteed! The ability to pass through the filter of the Minimax ASB multiplies the possibilities of creation and the polyphony, not to mention very useful in the end. The effects are ok but I prefer to go through external so I can not really judge.
The presets are far from showy 'techno' we used the Korg / Roland & Co for ages. Here you are served what is the charm of the bike in the 70's / 80's. Namely synthetic violins, flutes, harps and paraphernalia of sounds from another era. The message is clear 'to you to experiment!'. And experiencing, experiencing, sometimes to the point of forgetting that the signal is digital and it is a 'clone'. The side adds a polyphonic not least in its 124 locations Prodyssey and memories are still very useful (except for those who like to have thousands of locations). What I really like about it is that its use as the original one can do anything with this Prodyssey, it can stand alone even without worries what is more significant
Use for over six months, I caught one of the latest models available. Besides my analos want it perfectly and the road has absolutely nothing to be ashamed, far from it.
In the final Prodyssey is an emulation very interesting but unfortunately quite rare to dig up. It seems that Sonic Core no longer manufactures this small jewelry or when the account at a price drop and a little prohibitive if you go through their official website. So either you find it used and it makes you a true lucky (but I've seen it on this site so ...) or you go through the box 'direct sales if he stayed. By looking carefully it oscillates between 700/900 or more occasions in 1000 in nine (see € 1370).
In all cases those who have jealously guard and I would not be surprised that this incredible 'clone' becomes an object highly coveted by little ...
The 15/04/2011: After a year of use I sold for the benefit of another synth. He found a collector of the brand proudly happy to complete the last of his quest 'Cremaware / Sonic Core'. I regret it a bit but as they say, can not keep everything.
