MIDI Keyboard Controller

Q.When using the software synthesizer included with the PC-80 as a multitimbral sound module for MIDI playback, can I play along in realtime using the PC-80's keyboard?

A.Yes. The included PC-80 Software Synthesizer consists of two separate sound generators with 18 parts total: The PC-80 Player and the PC-80 Synth.

The PC-80 Player has 16 parts, and can be used as a conventional multitimbral MIDI sound module. The PC-80 Synth has 2 parts for direct playing from the PC-80's keyboard.

The two sound generators can be used independently, allowing you to use the PC-80's keyboard to play along with a Standard MIDI File or a song arrangement played from a software sequencer.
