With a variety of functions and modulation possibilities provided by oscillator sync, sample & hold, pulse width modulation, high pass filter, two types of envelope generator, and pitch shift using the PPC, he was able to create a versatile range of sounds.
The ARP Odyssey reproduces the sounds of these components at the circuit level. Under the supervision of David Friend, the pieces have been carefully selected and every detail has been fine-tuned to replicate the distinctive synthesis of the original instrument
