Full Bucket Music has released FB-3100, a software synthesizer instrument that aims to simulate the 1977 classic PS-3100 polyphonic analog synthesizer from Korg.

In 2017 and only forty years after its release, I took a closer look at the PS-3100 and to my surprise found many features that are pretty unique to this amazing machine. Having just finished versions 2.0 of the Mono/Fury and the blooo I started my next project: The FB-3100.

Aim of the project was to provide a close simulation of the original hardware and not some highly evolved, hyper-extended, next generation SuperPS-3100++ deluxe.

FB-3100 features

  • Close emulation of behavior and all controls of the original hardware.
  • Band-limited oscillators, classic two-pole lowpass filters.
  • Resonators section.
  • Two Modulation Generators, Sample & Hold.
  • Additional paraphonic Envelope Generator.
  • Semi-modular patch panel.
  • Micro-tuning option.
  • Additional tweaks.
  • MIDI Learn – all parameters can be controlled by MIDI CC.
  • Plug-in comes in 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

FB-3100 is available as a free VST instrument plugin for Windows.
