I will not dwell on the features clearly énumérées.C is primarily a synth research very sharp, like all korgs of this legendary series with a total polyphony!
I had the opportunity to try a good day and I really felt it was a marvel.
Many functions, tricks, and icing on the cake: independent adjustment of temperaments 2 oscillators And I'm not talking modulations!
Talking of this instrument as a zipper improved organ, nice to start in subtractive! While this is not serious!
Do not forget that Bob Moog considered this series of Korg, including the 3300, as the most complex instruments in the analog world!
Anything is possible, of course in a very synthetic registry, but it can recreate the feel of the bow across the strings to strings which he excels, I think my friend explained to me that it served demo at Phonogram in Paris and a unique imitation glass crystal singing! This is the anecdote ...
He gave me a strong feeling, powerful sound, very thorough research, musicality and look! Instrument is huge and the front is already an invitation to travel cosmique.Les rare and lucky posseseurs this instrument jealously guard . And I understand!
It would be interesting conaittre the number of PS 3200 and made functional today. It is true that the envelopes are not the most slamming the centuries ... dividers are fragile but the agreement is still stable as all this Family instrument: no need to warm-up time too long There is no perfect synth, of course, but I think it is part of the exception categories!
Thank you for reading this review, the result of ephemeral but intense encounter; its friendly owner let me see a huge potential for instrument dating from 1977 and presented by Korg as their flagship!

Synthtiseur modular analog
4 octave keyboard indpendant with multiple controllers
First instrument fully programmable polyphonic
Polyphony of 2 total VCO divisor type MM5824
Programme: 16 + user sounds.
Midi but not easily adaptable.
Compatible with other Ps 3100, 3300.
A non-programmable (assignable Jacks 6.35)
VCO 2, 12dB low pass filter, a programmable ADSR envelope
A non-programmable envelope generator (delay)
2 modulation generator, sample year hold.
White Noise Generator, Pink Noise.
Balance of filter and VCA envelope.
2 modulators with a programmable.
6 waveforms on each gnrateur
An overall effect type chorus
2 audio outputs
1 remote controller
Rglage Tempra on each divider (tune note by note) as a piano.
Allows you to tune the instrument for use ethnicity.
Gnrale configuration logic for a small modular.
Synthtiseur research IDAL sound to the uninitiated (trs clear instructions)
Original of the era: potentiomtre button programmable pressure (push-pull)
Processors and non-programmable connection jacks.
No after touch.
Some sounds are quite original but not imitative perfection, not the goal n'tait the era.
Among the most clbres (electric harp fawn Andreas Vollenweider, honky-tonk piano, brass ensemble and brass band, beaches trs synthetic violins, organ, pizzicato, flute, special effects ...)
A synthtiseur which would tend to approach an electronic organ from the standpoint engineering design, research and look into more.
Its advantage is its unchallenged total polyphony.
Inconvnients: 12db filter is too soft and does not rsonnance tense and powerful.
Keyboard too small, a 5 octave t would be welcome, although the tense is almost unlimited with the processors of multiplying it frquences inaudible to the human ear.
significant wind noise on audio output too low.
I possde synthtiseur this since 1978, bought used the team of JM Jarre / F.RIMBERT.
Obviously one of the four PS 3200 who participated in the first concert of Jean Michel Jarre, a July 14, Place de la Concorde.
Inconvnient its major weakness dividers MM 5824 that made me easily when temprature changes, replacing General for a solution more stable and less coteuse Pipelines Limited.
Parcontre I "midifiquot, without external interface (less than a synth coteux Traditional) possde dj since 60-pin connector with all indications of values, but it took the intervention of a specialist in as Jean Loup Dierstein,
