We pick our favourites      03/02/15

Best Mono Synth

Korg/ARP ODYSSEY

Perhaps a predictable choice, and not entirely a surprise, we did expect to see this at this show, but lets take a step back here - Korg (in conjunction with David Friend from ARP) have remade possibly the most popular analogue synthesizer ever made.

NAMM15 best Mono SynthBy many reckonings, the original Odyssey outsold the Mini Moog 2:1 back in the day and led a dual existence either side of the Atlantic - in the US is was used in the pioneering work in Jazz/Funk/Fusion with many artists such as George Duke, Joe Zawinul, Herbie Hancock using it in their influential works.

In the UK it was an affordable instrument and played a big part in the blossoming electronic music scene - Ultravox, John Foxx, Human League and many more. The Kog/Arp Odyssey can now be yours - featuring the filter circuits from all three revisions - and it’s $999/£779.
