can connect directly to a an early 90s pc or mac via the host serial connection supported by early versions of logic
The TG100 is a ROMpler with 12-bit samples. It competed with the Roland MT-32 and SC-55 of the same era, but did not fare as well due to the competition's use of 16-bit samples.

The unit requires an external power adapter, original model PA-1505, but neither the manual nor the unit indicate the adaptor's polarity, so it can be difficult to find a replacement. It is 15 volts DC, 500mA, positive tip, but a 12-volt supply will generally work (it's just not ideal).
