The synthesizer manufacturer Korg announced the release of a brand new application for iOS this week.
It has been named after one of their most famous analog synths, the ARP Odyssey and has been designed to provide the same feel and similar functionality as that same legendary synthesizer, but on a tablet.
It will be available on both the iPad and the iPhone and uses Korg’s proprietary CMT circuit modeling technology to reproduce the analog feeling and sound of the original synthesiser as closely as they possibly can, but on top of that, they also added on some extra enhancements, with polyphony and a number of built-in effects.
Korg explained more about it with the following:
The ARP Odyssey of 1972 has earned an unshakable position as a classic analog synthesizer. In 2015, KORG produced the ARP ODYSSEY, a complete reproduction of the original. The ARP genes that shook the worldwide music scene are being passed on, and its history continues.
The next platform for the ARP ODYSSEY is iOS. We want the unforgettable ARP sound to be easily available on a device that as many as possible of today’s players can obtain; this resulted in the “ARP ODYSSEi” app for iPad / iPhone. Based on the revived ARP ODYSSEY, we used KORG’s proprietary CMT circuit modeling technology to reproduce the analog feeling and sound of the original as closely as possible. We’ve also given it numerous enhancements that are possible only with software, such as long-awaited polyphony and built-in effects.
