UVI UVS-3200 | Korg PS-3200

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 Sample Library Review
"Fun stuff! It's pretty inspiring! […] I am really loving this. There's a quality to it that mimics hardware sound, but there's another quality to it that has a kind of temperament that I like to use."
UVS-3200 Gearslutz
"UVS-3200 sounds quirky, vibey and lush like very few virtual synths out there[…] recommended for synthesizers aficionados and electronics music producers looking for an exotic synth that is fun to play with."
UVS-3200 Samplecast
"It's all very lush sounding with a vintage charm, but surprisingly some of the presets don't sound retro at all! I can think where I'd use these in modern productions and older, retro tracks."
UVS-3200 Ask Audio
"What's not to love about this instrument? […] The sounds of this wonderfully unique instrument are lush and fantastic. It's dead simple to use, and it's a little piece of history inside of your plugins folder. Picking it up is a no brainer."
UVS-3200 FLStudioMusic Review
"The sound of UVS-3200 is rich, warm and powerful, with that analog "dirt" which makes it really authentic […] a world of textures, moods and sonic pleasures."
UVS-3200 Pro Tools Expert Review
"I've been finding loads of inspiration just with the presets, but the real fun comes when you start to delve into a bit of creative programming [...] this synth is now very high on my list of go-to synths."
