The PS-3200 Programmable Polyphonic Synthesizer:

We developed this instrument as an improved and memory-equipped version of our polyphonic PS-3100 synthesizer which has attracted much attention from the world's leading musicians.

As is the case with our other polyphonic synthesizers, you can play as many keys as you like at the same time. Each key has its own microelectronic IC synthesizer circuit. The biggest feature of the PS-3200 is that it has a memory. You can program it to remember 16 completely different tone colors that you are free to create as you would on an ordinary synthesizer. Programming is as simple as pressing a button. If you have been using monophonic synthesizers, rest assured that we have sacrificed nothing in converting to polyphonic operation.

You can even use the PS-3200 just as you would a monophonic instrument, if you like. But with this polyphonic capability you can create rich harmonies without the intermediate step of multitrack tape recording. This makes the PS-3200 highly suited to live performance applications. The whole of our PS-Series offers you this kind of excitingly innovative approach and solidly dependable performance, so that you can go beyond the limits of conventional synthesizers and explore the musical universe at will.

This synthesizer employs two signal generator modules. Which include the waveform generating VCO circuitry along with many other signal snapping and control modules. Including dynamic low-pass filters, envelope modifiers, and a 7-band equalizer.

With the total of 32 control knobs found in these modules you can create virtually any tone color. Then you can have the memory remember that setting. No matter how complex.

With 16 user memory locations available, you can save all settings of the 32 knobs for later recall while performing or working in a studio setting. The PS-3200 is also a semi-modular synthesizer that allows you to re-rout or rather re-patch almost anything within the modules.
