Karp Odyssey LFO mod?

Postby jayrope » Mon Oct 02, 2017 5:07 pm

Has anyone already attempted to mod the LFO sync-to-keyboard of the Karp Odyssey?

For the classic Odyssey there is a mod here, which shows, how to insert a switch to turn LFO sync on or off.
And Markus Fuller shows in his Karp teardown, how the board and LFO section looks like today.

Personally i can't really decipher that board and can't find proper schematics of the Karp either.

So... any suggestions, help, directions? Thanx a lot!

Here's a screenshot of the LFO section from Markus Fuller's teardown.

After careful evaluation with a good friend i just like to ask: Does it make sense to establish the original Arp Odyssey lfo mode with the Karp as pointed out in this image? Please comment. Image should be self explaining.

Thank you!

So.. did you ever try it? I am curious about this too.

I am also wondering how they fixed the LFO envelope repeat triggering on the module and the FS versions.

If you tried it, I'd love to see how it worked out!

The module and FS model use different circuit boards and they simply got the circuit right the second time.
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.
