The PsybOrg, above, is the custom live performance rig of composer/producer Logos (Jim ‘Andor’ Genaro). Genaro wanted to create a rig that went beyond basic function to create an exciting environment for his performances.
The PsybOrg is Inspired by the form and functionality of a pipe organ. It incorporates analog synthesizers, digital controllers, a Theremin, and sound reactive light displays in a walnut housing.
Korg successfully blew some people’s minds yesterday by announcing that it was going to build a new version of the ARP Odyssey, promising that it was going to be “a faithful recreation of the legendary 1970s analog synthesizer.”
After that settled in, though – people familiar with the ARP Odyssey started wondering which version of the legendary 1970′s analog synthesizer Korg plans to faithfully recreate:

Odyssey Mk II (1975 and 1978) – The main differences in the Mk II are the addition of CV/Gate control, a new black and gold color scheme, and a 4-pole VCF modeled after the classic Moog filter.
