This is truly bizarre if true :shock:

Why would it not be? It looks like an official announcement from Korg to me. Not really any reason to be skeptical here... :?

If it's a White Face I'm buying it as long as it is significantly less than an original. I paid $1000 for a brand new White Face in 1973.

Look at the timing. AIRA was just unveiled, lots of "oh, that looks kinda cool. I might get that."

And now BOOM everyone will be talking about this for months. Roland should have really just rebuilt their 808s on surface mount circuit boards and sold it for 700 bucks.

I agree that the timing is pretty...well, awesome, from a marketing perspective. KORG is hoping people will start saving for the new "faithful recreation" of the Odyssey -- which ain't gonna be cheap, folks -- rather than buying Roland's kinda-sorta remakes of their old products.

how much are you thinking? I think it would be lower than you expect, given that the odyssey value isn't neccesarily its components, more its name and sound-- same way with the MS-20. It wasn't that it was expensive to make, just that there were no new ones.

Unless of course, there is some part of the Odyssey I don't know about that is very expensive to make.

Probably a single large SMT circuit board. Great idea from Korg!


I can't see that photo.

But several of us were discussing the benefits of providing both filter types so that the range could be covered! Great idea!

So it's a proto of the Mk1s. Sexy. I hope it's full size!

Korg is and has been my favorite synth manufacturer ever. They started with the Minikorg700 and haven't stopped the excellence for 30 years.
