GForce Oddity 2

BEST Analogue classic

We predicted that GForce’s Oddity would make numerous appearances in our Six Of The Best and we were correct – here it is again! The Oddity – a virtual recreation of the original hardware ARP Odyssey synth – has been around for so long and made so many famous friends that it has become a classic piece of software in its own right. Electronic music legend John Foxx said of it: “The Oddity is beautifully realised. All the power, character, precision, intricacy, grunge and sonic extremes of the original.”

Reviewer Andy Jones said: “Oddity 2 is a triumph. It comes packed with many features over the original – we love the extra mod options and using it as an effect. But the best is Polyphonic mode, a feature that takes Oddity to new heights.” He concluded: “If ARP had carried on as a company, this is the synth it would have made now.”
