GForce Software Ltd. introduces Oddity3
GForce Oddity 3 Featured

GForce Software logo Gray BackgroundLondon, 1.11.22 – GForce Software are delighted to present Oddity3, a fresh and hugely enhanced rebuild of their much loved, multi-award-winning synth. The original Oddity, along with its successor Oddity2, gained heavy praise from fans and critics alike for incredible accuracy and, in the case of Oddity2, a huge range of additions taking the legendary ARP® Odyssey into previously unrealized audio realms, with some notable users even calling it their desert island synth. Oddity3 retains the fundamental architecture at the heart of previous versions but builds on this in ways that extend its sonic and musical capabilities. 

Oddity3 features an improved audio engine, a powerful new Preset Browser, over 250 new presets (plus all the originals), new Distortion and Reverb effects, a Vintage control to add authentic analog imperfections, four programmable Macros, new and improved performance controls along with three new, fully scalable UI designs. This classic desert island synth just got even better.

A Classic Synth For The 21st Century

With the sound and character of the original hardware at its core, Oddity3 gives a classic synth a new lease of life. Authentic models of all three original filters, two syncable oscillators, an accurate recreation of the legendary ring modulator, AR and ADSR envelopes, and much more, we’ve spent countless hours ensuring that Oddity3 still provides a faithful and accurate recreation of one of the most highly revered synths ever.

 

Over the years we’ve enhanced these original features extensively, adding monophonic and polyphonic playability, a tunable sub-oscillator, our unique X-Modifier technology, onboard effects, and voice panning. Now, Oddity3 adds a raft of new features and improvements – a powerful new Preset Browser, expanded performance controls with programmable Macros, Velocity and Polyphonic Aftertouch, a Vintage knob for adding analog-style imperfections, new Distortion, and Reverb effects, and more. All of this gives Oddity3 an authentic experience that feels at home in a modern setup.

Such are the sonic possibilities of Oddity3, that we’ve had to constantly remind ourselves that this new cinematic incarnation retains, at its heart, the structural design of the original ARP hardware. Oddity3 feels like a brand new synthesizer.” Dave Spiers & Chris Macleod, co-founders of GForce Software Ltd.

Inspiration At The Speed Of Sound

Oddity3 features our brand new Preset Browser, which gives the user the power to organize their sounds any way they want. With extensive tagging, sorting, and search possibilities, it’s now quick and easy to find the perfect preset. Talking of presets, we’ve got them by the bucketload. Firstly, we’ve included 250+ brand new presets created by our team of GForce sound designers, as well as a number of highly-regarded synthesists. You can also access over 1750 legacy presets from Oddity and Oddity2, which have all been categorized and tagged for easy navigation. Finally, we’ve also included 66 presets that we faithfully recreated from original patch books. With a total of over 2000 presets, inspiration is just moments away.

Oddity3 captures the sound of the original hardware while dragging it into the modern world. With such vast modulation possibilities, the scope of what this synth can do is huge, but it still retains that raw, vintage quality. One of my favorite synths just got even better!” Tom Wolfe, Sound Designer.
