DESCRIPTION

  Wavetable synthesis is the basis of virtually every professional music synthesizer. The DB50XG is compatible with the industry standard: General MIDI (GM). Every GM compatible DOS or Windows game and application will play without any problem on the DB50XG. Exceptional Sound that goes way beyond General MIDI. It's the first daughter board with XG - a major technological advancement developed by Yamaha. XG allows significantly more voices than GM. In total, the DB50XG adds over 548 voices to the 128 standard GM choices. Also allows you to play more voices at once, allowing for greater dramatic impact. Features state-of-the-art Digital Signal Processors (DSP's) that create unprecedented dynamic sounds. For over 100 years, Yamaha has crafted the finest musical instruments and consistently introduced technology that defines the leading edge. The DB50XG and the XG standard are just two of the latest examples.
