Juergen Haible JH-3200 PolyKorg Clone

The JH-3200 PolyKorg Clone was made by Juergen Haible, the ingenious analog synth guru, who sadly passed away in 2011. Haibles designs and ideas are still alive, though – see http://jhaible.com for some details.

Haible created the JH-3200 in 2002 and 2003. Inspired by Korg’s massive polyphonic synthesizers, he designed a unique instrument that features the best out of PS-3100 and PS-3200: 2 VCOs per voice, triple resonators, programmability (64 memories), full polyphony and MIDI are just a few of the wonderful JH-3200 features.

“Es genügt, einen Ton schön zu spielen” sagte der Komponist Arvo Pärt im Jahre 2005. Diese Aussage ist ebenso einfach wie ich auch exzellent: Es braucht kein Meer an Tönen, denn entscheidend ist der Klang. Dass so mancher Vintage-Synthesizer der 70er und 80er Jahre teils unerreicht hochwertige Klänge liefert, steht außer Frage. Doch tatsächlich leben wir “heute” in einer nahezu perfekten Zeit. Einerseits hat man – mehr oder weniger – noch Zugriff auf die Vintage Analogen, andererseits wird auch bei Neugeräten die wichtige Komponente des hochwertigen Klanges wieder zunehmend berücksichtigt. Doepfer, Cwejman, Synthesizers.com, MacBeth, Moog, GRP, Studio Electronics, COTK, John Bowen und andere Hersteller bauen hervorragende Synthesizer, die den “Klassikern” in nichts nachstehen. All diesen (alten wie neuen) “großartigen” Instrumenten ist Great Synthesizers gewidmet. _________________________________________________________ In 2005 composer Arvo Pärt said: “Playing one tone really well is enough”. In other words, it is sufficient to play one tone 'beautifully'. I agree with that. All musical efforts are focused on the sound itself. Although I studied classical music (piano and drums), it’s the electronic sound that inspires me. Synthesizers are the epitome of new sounds and exciting tonal spheres. Today, many companies produce high-quality - excellent! - synthesizers: Doepfer, Cwejman, MacBeth, Moog, GRP, Synthesizers.com, COTK, Studio Electronics, John Bowen and others. It's their products I'm really interested in ... apart from Vintage Synthesizers, which I have been collecting for 20 years. Subsequent to our former websites Bluesynths and Blogasys, Peter Mahr and I have now created GreatSynthesizers. We hope you like it.

      Hi Manuel … the JH-3200 measures 82 x 37 x 45 cm, same width as the Korg PS-3100, but slightly deeper. Internally, it is a Korg PS-3200, with resonators, and an extra HPF. Soundwise, it’s a little different from the PS-Series, though … full of analog (phasing) charme, but softer than the Korgs. And there are some technical differences. E.g.: Jürgen Haible implemented an ARP Omni chorus (which he loved), instead the original chorus. I’ll attach some soundfiles in the near future. The JH-3200 is a one-off and not for sale, sorry, … Kind regards, Theo
