Yamaha PC-100 PortaSound (Playcard System)

An innovative little instrument for 1982, the Yamaha PC-100's sound generation is by Yamaha's Pulse Analogue Synthesis System, P.A.S.S., first used on the large home organs such as the C and D Series. It also features Yamaha's signature Playcard system (cards not included), which allows the user to "scan" sheet music with magnetic strips to provide built in backing tracks to learn and play alongside with LED lights guiding your fingers.

Featuring classic FM sounds, fun rhythms and arpeggios in a classic 80s package. The PC-100 features a moulded carry case and can run on battery power making this little synth the perfect portable companion.
