Korg | PS-3300
The PS-3300 is a megalithic semi-modular two piece synthesizer system from Korg. It was one of the first truly polyphonic analog synthesizers from the mid '70's! Beautiful wood panels, plenty of knobs and patch-points and a bold Korg sound! The system follows the PS-3100 model.
The PS-3300 is like having 3 stacked PS-3100s with a built-in mixer module. The PS-3300 loves the number 48 - 48 voice polyphony, 48 VCOs, 48 VCFs and 48 VCAs! That would make this one of the largest and fattest compact synthesizer systems around! Each note on the keyboard has microtonal tunings. There's also a general envelope generator and sample and hold. In addition to a great Korg sound, it features incredible modulation abilities and is still a very useful and coveted synth even today.
The Korg PS-3300 is one of 3 polyphonic modular synthesizer models made by Korg in the late 1970's. The high production costs and complexity of the instrument gave it a price tag that was out of reach for anyone but the wealthiest musicians of the day. Bob Moog was so impressed with the PS-3300 that after he was given a demonstration of it he is quoted as saying that it was "the best synthesizer for fat sounds".

|Velocity||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.||Aftertouch||Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.|
