The Yamaha SFG-05 (or SFGII) is an FM tone generator unit that plugs into the slide slot of an MSX computer. When used with a Yamaha Music Keyboard (YK-01, YK-10, YK-20) or MIDI keyboard, it transforms your MSX into a digital synthesizer with wide possibilities. Updated version of the SFG01 previously available on early MSX computers.
- Play a solo voice with rhythm and Auto Bass Chord accompaniment.
- Play up to 8 notes polyphonically with 1 or 2 voices (4 voices if you use a MIDI keyboard).
- Real time recording and playback of up to 1800 notes. (You can play chords too).
- Connect to an external MIDI sequencer or rhythm machine and use as a 4-voice, 2-note MIDI tone generator. You can set MIDI reception channels independently for each voice.
- By using the YRM15 (101) Music Composer software, you can play up to 8 different voices simultaneously.
- Yamaha music software YRM 101~104 will run with no problems on the new SFG. However, the playback tempo for the Music Composer (YRM15 / 101) and Music Macro (YRM11 / 104) may be a bit slower than if used with the SFG01 (built-in FM Tone Generator of the CX5M).
