For some reason, I am unable to access the Instagram link included in a previous post on this thread. I found this online. Is this the leaked photo being referred to, or is there another one?

Looks like the Korg Odyssey will be making its debut at NAMM 2015 on January 22. I wonder what Korg will be pricing these at. I definitely want one. There's a very cool novelty factor in one synth company redesigning a classic synth from another company.

Korg's Odyssey - It's just been confirmed :)

My hunches were right. Korg... please don't shoot yourself in the foot and release a mini version!

I wonder what Behringer will do now?

It's the same key bed as the ms20 mini.

What really matters is when we can buy one :|
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Good. I hope the whole synth's been made smaller.

Smaller is fine. The Ms20mini is fine. As more of keys player I don't like the key size though. If they just cut the keys off and made a module, I'd be more inclined to grab one. Now to find a reason to actually need more buzzy analog s**t.

Cost reduction. I agree that it's kind of a shame, but what the h**l, I like my MS-20 Mini fine.

Bah, I was going to pose an argument but if people dig it, then I guess it doesn't really matter. My studio partner has one, but I can't get in to it. I should of kept my original! (I know, famous last words)

Oh, I understand why people find it annoying - muscle memory's a b***h, and some people just have large fingers on top of that. It just doesn't bother me personally all that much, is all.

Mini keys are ok for me on a monophonic synth. Granted I'd prefer to have full-size keys if I had the choice, but I'd rather have 3 octaves mini-keys, than just two octaves full-sized keys, like on the Sub Phatty.
