Korg revived the ARP ODYSSEY in 2015 and it's faithfully reproduced sound has garnered much praise. Korg have now used their 'Component Modeling Technology (CMT)' to create a fully featured iOS version which also has numerous improvements that are possible only in software. ARP ODYSSEi has added a voice assign mode that allows you to play chords, an arpeggiator that can be programmed in detail like a step sequencer, and effects that can transform the sound in diverse ways. They have also added an X-Y pad that lets you perform intuitively through touch gestures. ARP ODYSSEi can also be used in conjunction with the award-winning 'Korg Gadget' music production DAW app, is compatible with Audiobus and can be used as a sound module for GarageBand. As with the other Korg iOS apps, it can be used in conjuntion with a midi adaptor for input from control surfaces and keyboards.
