Great Sound Machine, with issues
Vox Lover, 09.11.2019
Very good clone of the Arp with the addition of some very good effects, a very versatile sequencer, and an arpeggiater, none of which were available on the original from the 70's. The keyboard is not very good...Behringer states it is a semi-weighted keyboard, but it really isn't. It's a simple plastic, spring keyboard with very little resistance. As it is/was a performance instrument, that's an issue. I hate the keyboard and told Behringer they need to stop advertising that it's semi-weighted. The oscillators are good, perhaps typical Arp, but the filters seem shallow. A problem exists with the HPF, also noted by other reviewers, with a relatively large notch that's missing in the upper register. You'll hear a definite gap . And mine is very scratchy - and a judicious use of contact spray did not resolve the problem...There's a lot of noise from the fader in the upper regions, which, once again, limits performance applications. But, as a sound module, it is capable of creating some wicked sounds, and in many ways much more versatile than the Mini Moog that it challenged back in the day. It had/has sample and hold, and a ring modulator, neither of which the Model D had, which gives it more sound creating advantages. The Arps have a unique sound, totally different from the Moogs, and if that is what you're looking for, then this might be the thing. I have to say, for the money, it's a pretty amazing instrument. They have changed a lot very quickly. I got one with the multi-colorered LEDs, that mirror the colored fader tips of the original. I have heard that the older, late summer 2019 units, with only white LEDs are still shipping. But again, despite some of my negative observations, it's a pretty interesting piece of kit for sound design and experimentation. It will keep you busy for hours if not days and weeks...

Phenomenal clone and more
BostjanK, 31.07.2020
I have always wanted an ARP Odyssey, but prices of vintage instruments are sky high. Two options were in top of my list. Korg Full size Odyssey and Behringer's Odyssey as much more cost effective option. I went for Behringer Odyssey and am very satisfied with purchase.

Pros:
- Built like a tank,
- full sized,
- built-in sequencer,
- reasonably good keys (excellent for the price!).

Cons:
- reasonably good keys,
- really short cable on external power supply,
- would prefer a built-in power supply myself, but, that's just me :-)

All in all excellent clone, offering hours and hours of great fun!

Not bad for the money, but a few things need fixing
Arcadia, 16.05.2020
The sound is virtually identical to the Korg Arp Odyssey. But the Behringer has full-sized keys which feel a lot nicer to the SlimKey Korg. That said, the onboard effects are pretty bad and you rather keep them off, so not a selling point, nor is the very basic sequencer which cannot be sync’d anyway. While I like the colored sliders, I found that from a pure feel perspective they are not very nice to the touch. I much prefer the sliders on the Korg version. And there is definitely something off about the HPF - it’s like nothing even happens until the last 1/4 of travel and then there is audible scratching as you move it (design flaw). I also found the envelopes a bit different than the Korg. When you want to make short attacks or very fast decays there isn’t much resolution as there is on the Korg.

Top Synth
Vanggelis, 08.04.2020
If you want a complete remake of the original this is the one to buy, nicely constructed it is really heavy as the sound of it, you can make your patches, this is one of the most loved one synths in my collection, a joyment of sound for leads and basses, no problems at all the olny downside (probably) for some of you is that you will need to manual tune the oscillator via a tuner.
