Creamware Prodyssey ASB

   0 reviews  -  1236 views

    The Prodyssey ASB is a one-to-one reproduction of the ARP Odyssey synthesizer. The ARP Odyssey is a true analog synthesizer from the 1970’s and has taken its proper place alongside other classic synths. It can be considered a compact version of the halfmodular ARP 2600, making it ARP’s answer to the successful Minimoog. But this synth is much more than that. While it is based on the classic analog synthesizer design – with oscillators, filters, and amplifier – it also offers a number of interesting improvements that make it unique and exciting. The most significant features are the wide range of modulation possibilities and of course the sample/hold section.

    Its small footprint and rich feature set made it an immediate hit with experts who already knew the sweet and powerful sounds the thing was capable of producing. And so it’s no surprise that the Odyssey became a legend, with its capability to produce the full gamut of tones in the sound spectrum, from deep basses to cutting leads to impressive effects. Its diversity of sounds makes the Odyssey one of the most sought after classic synths on today’s used market, and it clearly hasn’t lost any of its original appeal.

    We relied on our tried and true Circuit Modeling process in order to preserve the original character of this instrument and to faithfully reproduce its wide range of sounds. This process delivers extremely faithful sound reproduction and aliasing-free algorithms. We were able to go beyond simply modeling certain aspects of this classic instrument; in fact, we fully emulated it. Even the knob settings and the behavior of the knobs themselves are identical to those of the original instrument.

    Within the variations from unit to unit of the original instrument, the PRODYSSEY perfectly reproduces the sounds of the original ARP Odyssey. So go ahead and grab all of your old patch sheets, or download a couple from the Web, and conjure up some of those classic sounds. Or play around with the synth’s new, expanded features, explore the integrated effects section, and create the sounds of tomorrow. Give your imagination free reign!
