Behringer is set to move their clone of the ARP Odyssey duophonic analog synth into production. Considering the stunning sonic results (and price tag) of their Model D tribute, maybe it’s time to get a little excited.
The ARP Odyssey was Alan Pearlman’s answer to the Minimoog Model D. Not only did it compete with the Moog synth, but it also became a bonafide classic in its own right. Many of the ARP Odyssey’s key design features flowed directly through the Odyssey. And of course, Behringer has replicated these trademark touches to a T.
The ARP Odyssey was a revolutionary synth upon its release in 1972. Now Behringer is set to create its own affordable version for the mass market.
Here’s what Uli Behringer had to say about the development:
“We’re excited to announce that the Odyssey is now in pre-production. It’s all looking good and we’re confident to soon switch to full production.
“That’s one great sounding synth!”
Though concrete release dates and prices are yet to be finalised, but it’s expected that the synth will come in at US $500. So get excited people, it won’t be long before you can get your mitts on those signature sliders once again.
