UVI has released UVS-3200 featuring sounds from the rare 48-voice KORG PS-3200. It comes with over 220 patches covering classic and modern styles. Here's the story in UVI's own words...
UVS-3200 brings you the rare and exceedingly warm sounds of a complex and stunning piece of synthesizer history, the KORG PS-3200, perfectly restored and deeply sampled in all its vintage analog glory. Built in a very limited quantity during the late '70s this Japanese beauty featured a semi-modular 48-voice polyphonic engine. Each voice was equipped with 2 VCOs, of which each had its own VCF and LFO. The PS-3200 also featured a remarkable 16 patches of memory recall (a fantastic convenience at the time). Settings could be saved and restored at any time by way of the front panel or optional remote. This synth also featured a unique keyboard controller with scalable CV joystick providing a fun and dynamic performance angle.
Due to the PS-3200's extreme component count and the age of these machines they are both extraordinarily expensive to own and repair and increasingly scarce to find. Thankfully we got our hands on a pristine unit and after a complete check-up and fine tuning handed it over to our sound design team to push it to the limits, documenting the very best of what it has to offer.
UVS-3200 delivers a collection of musical and sonically pristine patches brimming with a warmth and presence that's both unique and undeniably analog. A marvelous artifact seen through a modern lens, our sound designers created a multitude of configurations resulting in sounds covering everything from classic tones to those at home in current styles. Over 220 patches including fat analog basses, rich evolving pads, punishing leads and more await.
Inspired by the original hardware the UI boasts a vintage aesthetic with modern controls. Quickly surf the included presets for inspiration or dive in to create your own patches. Choose from 24 presets for Oscillator 1 and 69 presets for Oscillator 2. Adjust ADSR envelopes for both the amp and multimode filter along with comprehensive stereo, effects and per-oscillator modulation and arpeggiators.
