Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

Thanks for the vote of confidence Blue! Just so's everyone knows I'm not gonna hack at it with a claw hammer and butter knife, I used to be an electronics tech in a fiber optics lab and I have an ESD safe bench full of tech gear that I use for keyboards, guitars and stuff. But there's always the unk...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

^ Alrighty then. Glad to know the Odyssey isn't having problems and is working as it should. But, like the original, I can be modded to add the LFO output to the main CV out... That's the beauty of ARP's design, there's so much you can do if you're brave, or possibly stupid, enough ;) You're playin...

Re: Korg to release ARP Odyssey

Odyssey owners: I've been using the CV, Gate and Trigger outputs on the new Odyssey to run my other gear and found something peculiar. The PPC sends pitch bend ok over the CV but it doesn't send vibrato over CV at all. Is this normal vintage Odyssey behavior? I've contacted Korg and waiting to hear ...

Re: Messe: Universal Audio Apollo 8

Might be a good time to pick up one of the old ones, they're great quality. If you don't need the preamp models (bit of a gimmick if you ask me) these new ones don't really have anything to offer. I was already planning to get an Apollo Duo with Thunderbolt and I'm hoping the price drops on the old...

Re: TTSH: Two Thousand Six Hundred (DIY Arp 2600 Clone)

Total cost is around $1,079 USD to build a TTSH = $540 for the PCB's and front panel, $436 for the components and $103 for the rare parts and jacks. The case costs extra but I built my own.

Re: TTSH: Two Thousand Six Hundred (DIY Arp 2600 Clone)

I understanding the VCA thump is inherent in the ARP 2600's design. C.M.S. offers an upgrade to the 2600 to remove the thump as part of their audio path upgrade. The TTSH is a clone of the 2600 and inherited many of the parents traits by design. I used four 1uF polyester non-polar capacitors to deco...

Re: Prophet 6

Digital LFOs / EGs, and sounds like Andromeda-style tuning correction (reading back the frequencies in realtime): https://www.youtube.com/watch?x-yt-ts=1421914688&x-yt-cl=84503534&v=nrCEmncGz-o At 5:21 Rich from Korg is hanging out.

Re: Edgar Froese 1944 - 2015

I've loved Tangerine Dream since around 1981 (Exit). I used to think - "man, those guys are cool!" and I'd play the album as loud as teenagerly possible.

RIP Mr. Froese
