Namm 2017: Watch Korg Explain Their Reasons For Building A Full Size ARP Odyssey

Good news for anyone craving the authentic, full-sized ARP Odyssey experience - it's here!  

Korg has been wowing us with its software recently but hardware is in the company's DNA, and at NAMM 2017 we got a demo of the new ARP Odyssey FS, a faithful recreation of the full size (FS) classic synthesizer from the 1970s. As well as being larger than the previous model from a couple of years ago, with 37 full size keys, it maintains the original circuitry and layout design while incorporating newer technologies like USB for today's musician. 

Korg has moved production of this particular model back to the U.S to "capture the spirit of the original" and it even comes in a choice of three gorgeous color schemes.
