Korg Arp Oddyssey in 2015

Korg's remake of the Arp Oddyssey has suffered a setback, with the release date having been moved back into next year owing to manufacturing issues. It's a shame that we won't get to see how Korg fares with this unit (or an eventual price for that matter), but a bit of quality control usually goes a long way. What is interesting based on information on VintageSynthExplorer is that Korg have multiple models to draw from, so it is anyone's guess as to what the eventual model will sound and look like.

I am certainly looking forward to another updated analogue synth with MIDI and CV/Gate as standard, if only to see what the modular synth people end up doing with it. Plus all the inevitable comparison videos and vitriol that this brings (joy!).
