Synthesist Marcus Padrini shared this series of videos, comparing the Korg ARP Odyssey to the company’s software alternative, Korg ARP Odyssei for iPad.
- The position of the sliders is not identical on both. To sound similar, small adjustments need to be made. The result of the video is the best I got using my ears 🙂
- This video does not seek to discuss analog vs. digital. The experience of using them is completely different, which leads to very different sound and creative results. Here we have just a simple comparison of a specific patch, created initially with Arp Odyssey (hardware).
- I would not exchange the Odyssey for the app, but Korg did a great job on both!
Can an iPad synth match the sound of hardware? Check out the comparisons and let us know what you think!
