A 48-voice polyphonic semi-modular analog synthesizer with a 48-note remote keyboard. Released in 1978, it was the last unit of the PS line.

The PS-3200 is basicially two PS-3100s together, with a 16-unit patch memory and extra mixer/balance/EQ modules. There are 2 VCOs per voice, each of them having their own VCF and LFO.
The 3200's programming features aren't as flexible as the 3300's, thanks to a limited patch bay. Also the EG design is still very limited.

Famous users of the PS-3200 include Jean Michel Jarre and Hans Zimmer.
