Oddity3 – Bold, brash and beautiful.

When the original GForce Oddity was released all the way back in 2002, it was heavily praised by fans and critics alike for its incredibly accurate representation of the revered ARP® Odyssey, with some notable users even calling it their desert island synth. Now, twenty-one years later, we’ve updated this classic to make it the most authentic, powerful and modern odyssey available. 

Oddity3 takes the character and sound of Oddity and adds a wave of enhancements, bringing the spirit of the original to a new generation of music makers. With a powerful new Preset Browser and 1250+ presets including 250+ new ones, new Distortion and Reverb effects, a Vintage control for dialing in authentic imperfections, and four programmable Macros, plus new and improved performance controls, this classic desert island synth just got even better.

Oddity3 new features

An Odyssey 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.

Artist's Opinion

This has to be one of the most powerful synths out there, and is fast becoming my go to plugin. It sounds unreal.

X-Modifiers - A Sound Design Playground

Using our unique X-Modifier technology, users can reach new sonic heights with Oddity3. With a unique LFO and Envelope for almost every parameter on the synth, Oddity3 allows you to create hugely complex sounds.

And, while the tone and character of the synth remains authentic to the original, the X-Modifiers allow you to take this classic sound to unexplored realms of possibility. This is the odyssey sound on steroids.

From Pretty To Gritty

When listening to some of the beautiful, soft pads in Oddity3, it would be easy to think that this is a synth with a gentle nature – but make no mistake. Oddity3 is a synth that’s just as happy screaming as it is singing. With raw oscillators, gritty filters, screeching hardsync and a gnarly ring mod circuit, the original hardware was made to shred.

GForce Oddity3 retains this dirty, edgy character and takes it one step further – enhancing it with new ways to add dirt and grime to your sounds. The new distortion circuit allows you to mutilate and mangle your sounds even further, plus we’ve also added a Vintage control so you can dial in authentic analog inaccuracies to suit your taste.

Sometimes, there really is beauty in imperfection!

Inspiration At The Speed Of Sound

Oddity3 features our brand new preset browser, which gives you the power to organise your sounds the way you want. With extensive tagging, sorting and search possibilities, it’s now quick and easy to find the presets you want.
