Korg PS-3200 fun

Post by hfinn » Thu Jun 12, 2008 5:00 pm

some fun with the Korg PS-3200. A semi-modular polysynth is great.

Thanks for posting this, Heath! There is so little on this synth on the internet.

What is it with you chaps and your ace Korgs?! Between yourself, Angus and Marc's new MS-20 videos, I'm having to keep a canary around here!

Lovely demo, Heath!

For the first time in about 8 years, I am utterly Korgless.
Well, except for my guitar tuner, but yeah.

Yeah, what they said. That does sound really nice. Good recording of it too, the overall sound production was better than some of your other demos, imho.

I learned last week that I can connect the 3100 to the 3200 and they will act as a PS-3300. I can control both with one keyboard very easily.

Not exactly but similar.

Do you have the 60-pin junction box ?

You don't really need the junction box. If I take the cable and plug it from the back of the 3100 into the 3200, the 3100's keyboard will control the pitch perfectly of both synths. It will even control the 3200 if the 3100 is turned off.

So in essence I have a three oscillator semi-modular polysynth. Just only one oscillator can be run through the resonators. :)

I agree.
Very cool sounds. I can definitely hear Tomita in there. Thanks.

BTW, how did you even find one?
