Korg ARP Odyssey PSYCHEDELIC SYMPHONY with organs that sound like synths...

Hola Amigos, here is my Psychedelic Symphony in 4 1/2 movements with Korg ARP Odyssey 2015 and 4 1/2 vintage organs that can sound like synths. I was interested in early Pink Floyd & Tangerine Dream, So I bought 4 analog organs for the price of one YAMAHA Reface YC :-) I couldn’t believe what amazing instruments you get for the money. Most time I tried to let them sound like synths and not as typical organs.

Instruments used:
Korg ARP Odyssey 2015 
Elka Artist 707 (1978) with Elka Rhapsody 610 string synth & Elka Soloist 505 on board
Farfisa Compact (1967)
Farfisa VIP 345 (1972)
Farfisa VIP 200 R (1975)
Farfisa Syntorchestra (1976) string machine with solo synth
Elektron Octatrack (for recording audio)
Godin LGX-SA guitar
Jim Dooley on Drums 

Hope you enjoy my 70ies inspired psychedelic trip :-)
