Does one of you guys know about this problem?
Actually today I was playing with sending CV/Gate from the Poly D and it worked perfectly.

What happens if you send CV out to CV in?

Pitch is ok then, and duophon playling blocked ( as it should be)

Ok so it's the CV being sent in that seems to be causing the issue, or else it's about tuning the oscillators. When I connected the PolyD, the oscs were an octave higher to the Poly D (I had them tuned to the 200Hz notch), but otherwise OK since I had then tuned to the rest of the rig.

In any case, there doesn't seem to be a problem with your Odyssey.

Man, after a week, im selling my pro one because the oddy eats it for lunch.... ahahahaahahaaha i like the pro one, but man that filter is no match for the oddy filters, and the fm on the oddy is better too, plus ring mod, the envs are not quite as snappy as the pro one, but its close enough..

Wow! Still keeping the Boog though? Which ones have you yet to try, the Wasp and the Cat? This glut of gear means we can be very picky, and it's easy to buy and sell the stuff.

The cat has bad envs. Wasp is digital osc, so i stayed away plus the looping env is weird. K2 hated the envs. Why keep the boog, the hp, filter fm, and its snap and big sound plus it plays below c1 unlike the pro one. The oddy is the best and so is the boog. The pro one is good, i just prefer ody and boog.

I've been resisting the Oddy but I can believe it's as good as the Boog. I can't fit an Oddy and a 2600 in though.

I'd get a Wasp if I didn't have a Jasper waiting to be done. They sound really good to me, like a Bass Station without the low resolution controls and with more filter modes.

Thank you kindly! (The film clip is doing 51% of the work, and I'm fine with that.)

I just picked up the Behringer Odyssey. Behringer did a wonder job - I love the effects added. Patch memory would have been something I would paid extra for and the same goes for a standard 3 prong power cable.

My initial experience was that of the first synth I ever purchased - the Korg MonoPoly - sounds great but how do I get it to work?! Programing the thing was always a pain and having limited polyphony or mono only was always a limitation.

And why not in 2020 put in patch memory? WHY? I know there are fanboys out there that love no patch thing but the no patch thing was one of the big reasons I ditched my MonoPoly all those years ago (and I do not miss it!).

The sound of this Odyssey is SPECTACULAR.

In case someone does not want to go through 3000 posts, As far as patches I have this:

Since you own both, do you know if it's possible to send velocity CV from the Odyssey to the Boog? I have the Oddy and thinking of grabbing the Boog also but and I don't want to deal with a keystep and minikeys.

That might be the worst video I've ever seen. Hopefully, neither of those two have sired children.

Well they make a change from the usual gear review vids. They've done a TD-3 one:

The Behringer re-creations like the Boog and the Bodyssey are all probably 95%-98% analog circuitry identical to the originals. They're not digital re-creations, using modeling or sampling, so adding patch memory just isn't possible. You'd need something like those "preset" modules that Emerson had built for his big modular - expensive and fiddly. While I suppose it would be possible to replace all the pots with encoders or something like that, I'm guessing it would add a lot to the cost, and I've heard those kinds of controls don't have the fine precision of real analog pots, and would probably disappoint a lot of folks. Anyway, I think Uli's goal was to reproduce the originals as faithfully as possible, and judging by my Model D, he has succeeded spectacularly.
