Duophonic analogue synthesizer

The original Odyssey from the 1970s was marketed as the alternative to a competitor model that was very sought-after at the time, with different operation logic and a wider range of timbres. Behringer's Odyssey expands the model to include an effect processor, sequencer, and MIDI capability. With classic waveforms, ring modulation, hard sync, and a noise generator, a wide spectrum of musical and experimental sounds can be created. Operation is facilitated by the integrated LEDs, which make the panel very easy to understand. The two oscillators can be actuated individually for playing in two voices, so that a bass and lead voice can be played in parallel on a full-size keyboard, for example.

Classic, wide-ranging analogue sound

The two VCOs deliver powerful basic waveforms, which also create aggressive and metallic sounds via sync and ring modulation. The filter can be switched between three modes from 12dB to two different 24dB variants, which alters the sound character substantially. This is accompanied by a high-pass filter and an adjustable overdrive, which is particularly suitable for lead sounds and SFX. The concept of fader-assignable audio and modulation signals allows for a wider sound spectrum than users may be used to from comparable analogue classics, as well as expressive playing with intuitive sound manipulation.

For duophonic solos

With its tonal character, the Odyssey is perfect for Funk and Fusion. Its sonic variety, the three pressure-sensitive rubber pads, and the option of duophonic playing are perfect for expressive keyboardists. Bass/lead solos in the style of Funkadelic or Joe Zawinul are no problem with the Behringer Odyssey in terms of both sound and playing feel. For use in electronic music and dance tracks, an arpeggiator and a sequencer are also on board. The triggerable sample and hold functions and the sync, overdrive, and ring modulation effects enable a range of powerful sounds to be created. The sequencer can also be programmed from a computer via the free Synth Tool.

About Behringer

The company, which was founded in Germany by Uli Behringer and now manufactures its products in China, has been known for affordable and great-value equipment since its very first product, the Studio Exciter F. An array of mixing consoles (such as the Eurodesk MX8000), signal processors, and later sound amplification and monitoring equipment, has made it possible for countless musicians to fit out their home studios, practice rooms, and mobile PAs within budget limits that were previously unthinkable. The acquisition of other companies, including Midas, Klark Teknik, and TC Electronic, meant that new product groups were added - and also resulted in the technical expertise of these companies being incorporated into product development.

Intuitive sound editing - live or in the studio

With its 37-note keyboard, the Odyssey is predestined for solo playing. The flexible structure of its sound generation circuitry allows the player to spontaneously shape the sound. The integrated effects unit is especially helpful for live use, where it saves on additional equipment, and the LED faders provide a clear overview that allows for quick changes during a live gig as well as experimentation with the different sonic options or intuitive modulation during a running sequence. In the studio, the Odyssey can be controlled directly by a DAW via MIDI or USB.

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...

This thing is built like one. Steel toecapped boots recommeded when using. Dropping it on your foot will do serious damage. It has a great quality keyboard and the overall built quality is great - sliders are good.

I dont really understand why a mic cable socket is used for one of the two audio outputs when most behringer gear comes with jack plug sockets.

The mono klark teknik effects are ok but not stunning.

Those are the only two slight negatives for me. Other than that its all very good and highly recommended. Its probably the best of all the behringer reissues so far in my opinion.


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.


good clone
Natalia B. 14.10.2020
Its a good clone of the arp but in my opinion, sound quality is not exactly the same. Also the behaviour of the keyboard and buttons. Has some nice add on features that original didnt have - USB connection is the major one thats good to have but other than that, everything works as expected. Sound quality is good and construction is alright, i would expect less wobly controls, the buttons wobble a but . Also the rubber buttons could be stiffer, sometimes its not clear how hard you wanna press on them. All good - for a cheaper price, worthly addition to the studio
