ARP synthesizers are loved by countless musicians for their innovative sound. The classic models, produced from the 1960’s to the 1980’s, had an enormous impact on the subsequent history of synthesizers and the overall history of music. Today, ARP continues to be remembered as one of the great synthesizer brands.

Since the beginning, ARP has greatly influenced synthesizer development and been involved in the birth of numerous musical styles. However, in spite of its success in producing numerous classic models, the legendary company regrettably closed its doors in 1981.

Now, ARP is reborn. Korg, a Japanese synthesizer manufacturer, welcomes ARP Co- founder David Friend as an advisor in the resurrection of a classic ARP synthesizer–the ARP Odyssey.

The ARP Odyssey was the main force driving the music of 1970—1980. Because of its versatile sonic range and wonderful tone, the new ARP ODYSSEY can be used to create retro, current, and new sounds. ARP synthesizers span the ages, supporting the music-making of today and tomorrow
