It does work to a certain degree however, I took it in a vintage synth repair shop and was told that it needs a complete new set of faders and a thorough cleaning internally to bring it back to full function.” Link

ARP Odyssey 2800 MK1 Whiteface Synthesizer

This is a truly awesome and rare synth to come across. While containing the original
vintage parts, this synth was also modified to enhance the playability and look. I will try my best to give an accurate description of this synth!

A few quick specs on the synth. It has 37 keys. It is surprisingly lightweight and portable, weighing a little over 20 pounds. It measures roughly 23 (L) x 18 (W) x 7 (H).
It has two oscillators, an LFO, high pass filter, other standard features, and some other cool additions such as portamento, noise, S/H, oscillator sync, and ring mod. It sounds phenomenal- it has a very gritty vintage vibe, but also produces cutting lead tones similar to a Model D. The low end is very fat and gets a nice squeal sound when the resonance is pushed. Mentioning the resonance, it is extremely powerful (be careful!)- it self oscillates really easily- i find it sounds best at the mid to 3/4 mark on the pot. The HPF is very smooth and can produce a wide range of tones just by opening and closing the filter slightly. My favorite features without a doubt are the noise and ring mod. I have never enjoyed using noise more than I do with this synth. The ring mod also gives your tone a nice nasty kick in the high end and sounds great! Other features such as adjustable pulse width, adjustable S/H, and oscillator sync are very handy. It is without a doubt a beast of an analog synth!

The physical condition is good given the age of the synth. There is some wear across the front panel, including various dents, marks and scratches. Most of this wear is small and is not noticeable unless viewed close up. The lettering on the synth is also in good shape. All of the wording on the white front panel is legible and unfaded. The ARP Odyssey logo on the right front has a couple of smudge marks. The logo and lettering on the back of the Odyssey is in very good shape, with little wear or fading. The original “Model 2800” sticker on the back is also in great shape.

Functionally, this synth is in very good condition. It seems that every knob and function is working well. The pots are working pretty smoothly and do not have much resistance or scratchiness. This synth was recently calibrated in April of this year, so it should be set to work reliably for a while! It is likely that this synth will need to be maintained and/or repaired every now and then, so please keep that in mind.

Now I would like to mention the awesome mods done to this synth. This Odyssey has been customized with “Galaxy” themed sides! These sides look superb because they are not over the top flashy, but add a nice visual element to the synth. They were given a protective paint coating so the design will not fade or smudge when touched.

On top of these sides, the most notable and important mod is the next level aftertouch keyboard. This is not your normal aftertouch, because it is fully customizable! As you can see in the photos, the front panel has a “Pyxis” aftertouch system installed. This system basically lets you control the effect of the aftertouch. You can route the aftertouch to the LFO, the cutoff filter, VCA, and pitch bend. You can also control things like LFO speed and the cutoff point of the filter with the adjustable knobs on the Pyxis panel. You can even have these parameters in use simultaneously. This is a very handy and high end mod that really brings this synth to another level!

This synth also includes an LFO free run mod. There is one more switch on the synth, but I am actually not sure of what it does. I believe it might be some sort of reverse function for the Pyxis, but I have never used it.” Link

used arp odyssey with media mix “This is the original Arp Odyssey. It is in decent condition. It hasn’t been beat up or abused. A few discolored spots (adds character). The keyboard functions as it should. All the keys work and none stick. It has a good synth action feel. All the functions seem to work, but, not being an analog expert and not knowing how parameters interact with each other, sometimes things don’t do anything, thus, it is being sold as is. Still, It is capable of makeing those smooth warm analog sounds. The nice thing about this unit is that it comes with a joy stick. The drawback of the Odysseys was the pitch knob. The joy stick adds control of pitch and filter as well as oscillator mix. This joy stick is rare. A web search failed to find one for sale. It can also be used with other analog synths including modular as long as they are properly wired up. Full disclosure: The cv, gate and trig I/O has been added. I am able to send signal to another voltage controlled unit, but, the osc 1, 2 and gain controls do nothing. One cap on a slider is missing. (pulse width mod). The ground prong has been cut off the power plug. The white balance is off in some of the pictures. It is white not yellow. Comes with foot switch for portamento.” Link

used arp odyssey
FOR AUCTION: an original Arp Odyssey in black/gold, the model 2800 (Mark 1 with the most coveted model 4023 filter), circa 1974, made in the USA. The synthesizer is in excellent working condition having recently had the following restoration performed locally by thisoldsynth.com:

March 2016: New keyboard bushings installed

March 2016: Sliders disassembled & cleaned

March 2016: Power supply electrolytic capacitors replaced

March 2016: New Kenton CV retrofit installed

It is a beautiful-sounding instrument, I prefer its sound to the more sterile-sounding Korg Odyssey remake. This has a brand new Kenton CV retrofit installed so you can control it with control voltage via a MIDI-to-CV convertor, a superior solution like Expert Sleepers’ Silent Way or MOTU’s Volta, or with an analog sequencer. The overall physical condition is very good- it has scratches and wear but is overall in great shape. Clear photos of the actual synthesizer for auction are included.

As an instrument from around 1974, this is being sold “as-is/no returns”. HOWEVER, if you are local to the Bay Area and can pick it up, it is guaranteed to be in excellent working condition. It has been professionally restored and I would expect it to be maintenance-free for years as long as you actually use it regularly (the sliders will not easily oxidize or gather dust with regular use and proper storage). ” Link

Each key triggers perfectly, every function works and all switches operate nicely. The led sliders have the latest features where the lfo and envelope sliders illuminate in intensity according to their respective settings giving accurate visual feedback of those modulations. A dedicated power supply for the sliders is used so no additional strain will be caused and it powers on along with the Odysseys main power switch. Extra care was taken to preserve the original therefore this modification could be removed someday w/o any scars. Stays covered when not in use stored in a clean climate controlled studio.
