Oddity3 – Bold, Bold and Beautiful Oddity3 is a fresh and greatly improved version of our award-winning favorite Oddity software synthesizer. The original Oddity, along with its successor Oddity2, has been praised by fans and critics for its incredible fidelity and, in the case of Oddity2, a huge array of add-ons that take the legendary ARP Odyssey into previously unrealized sonic realms. Oddity3 retains the fundamental architecture behind previous versions but expands on its sonic and musical capabilities.
Oddity3 includes an improved sound engine, a powerful new preset browser, over 250 new presets (plus all originals), new distortion and reverb effects, a Vintage control to add authentic analog imperfections, four programmable macros, new and improved performance controls, and three new, fully scalable user interface designs. This classic synth from a desert island just got better.
Classic Synth for the 21st Century:
With the sound and character of the original hardware, Oddity3 gives the classic synthesizer new life. Authentic models of all three original filters, two synchronized oscillators, faithful recreations of the legendary ring modulator, AR and ADSR envelopes, and more – we’ve spent countless hours ensuring that Oddity3 continues to deliver accurate and accurate recreations of one of the world’s most revered synths.
Over the years, we have greatly improved on these original features, adding mono and polyphonic playback capabilities, a customizable auxiliary oscillator, our unique X-Modifier technology, built-in effects and voice panning. Oddity3 now adds a host of new features and improvements – a powerful new preset browser, advanced performance controls with programmable macros, Velocity and Polyphonic Aftertouch, a Vintage knob to add analog style imperfections, new Distortion and Reverb effects, and more. All of this gives Oddity3 an authentic experience that feels right at home in a modern setting.
X-Modifiers – sound design platform:
Using our unique X-Modifier technology, users can reach new sonic heights with Oddity3. With a unique LFO and Envelope for almost every synth parameter, Oddity3 allows you to create extremely complex sounds. And while the tone and character of the synth remain authentic, the X-Modifiers let you take that classic sound into uncharted realms of possibility. This is the sound of an odyssey on steroids.
From beautiful to harsh:
Listening to some of the beautiful, soft pads in Oddity3, one might easily think that this is a synth with a gentle nature, but make no mistake. Oddity3 is a synth that screams as much as it sings. With raw oscillators, coarse filters, squealing hardware clocks, and clumsy ring modulation, the original equipment was torn to shreds. GForce Oddity3 keeps that dirty, edgy character and takes it one step further by amplifying it in new ways to add dirt to your sounds. A new distortion circuit lets you distort and distort your sounds even more, plus we’ve also added a Vintage knob so you can tweak the authentic analog inaccuracies to your liking. Sometimes there is beauty in imperfection.
Inspiration at the speed of sound:
Oddity3 offers a new preset browser that gives you the ability to arrange sounds the way you want. With extensive tagging, sorting and searching options, you can now quickly and easily find the presets you need. Speaking of presets, we have plenty of them. First, we’ve included over 250 brand new presets created by our GForce sound design team, as well as a range of highly acclaimed synths. You can also access over 1750 legacy presets from Oddity and Oddity2, which have been categorized and tagged for easy navigation. Finally, we’ve also included 66 presets that we’ve faithfully recreated from the original patchbooks. With over 2,000 presets at your fingertips, inspiration is never far away.
