STANDARD UPGRADES

(no machining of the front panel)

 

FILTER UPGRADE - (4075) - FOR MODELS 2811 thru 2823 - 79.00

Odyssey 2 filters have a upper frequency limit of 11khz! This frequency response upgrade is similar to the 2600 filter upgrade extending the cutoff frequency range from 11khz to 28khz. This upgrade also replaces some critical components in the signal path. Your filter sub-module is removed, tested, upgraded, re-tested and re-installed into main board "C".

 

POWER SUPPLY REBUILD - ALL MODELS - 69.00

Certain critical components in your power supply have a shelf / working life of 20 years maximum. It's probably time your power supply was rebuilt. These units are getting very old, so if you are serious about your ARP, you should get the Power Supply Rebuild.

 
             
   

MAJOR UPGRADES FOR THE ARP ODYSSEY:

 

AUDIO PATH UPGRADE V2.0 - ALL MODELS - 2800 thru 2813 -125.00, all others 99.00

This mod replaces critical signal path components in the synthesizer section of your Odyssey with audiophile grade components. Low end response is improved resulting in a more accurate wave shape. High end response is also Improved. This mod now includes a high-pass filter bypass switch. Analysis using a good quality oscilloscope on the output of a stock Odyssey reveals that when the high-pass filter slider is all the way down, the circuitry is still removing quite a bit of low end from the signal path.

 

LFO FREE RUN SWITCH - ALL MODELS - 2800 thru 2813 - 69.00, all others 59.00

It's impossible to get a slow moving sweep on the LFO while playing your Odyssey's keyboard. The LFO also re-triggers on incoming external gate signals from a remote keyboard. When this switch is in the "free run" position, the keyboard and the extenal gate input will not restart the LFO as with stock units.

 

EG TIME EXPANDER SWITCH - ALL MODELS - 2800 THRU 2813 - 79.00, all others 69.00

This mod installs a professional grade miniature toggle switch (the exact model used in the 2500 modules) in your Odysseys AR or ADSR section that speeds up the time constant on the envelope generator to attain 2600 type percussive envelopes. This upgrade now features a 3 position switch with an extra slow mode for extended attack, decay and release times. Now available for the AR generator.

 

REAR PANEL INTERFACE JACKS - FOR THE 2800 ONLY - 159.00

Professionally installed CV, gate and trigger inputs and outputs for the 2800 Odyssey using 1/8th inch Switchcraft jacks. The interface is functional with only CV and gate inputs if desired. This new and improved CMS upgrade features high speed operation of the gate and trigger input signals eliminating the latency problem inherent in the old ARP retrofit for the 2800. If you have the factory interface installed already, we can update it to our high speed version for $89.00
