Roland MT-32
The Roland MT-32 not initially developed for the home computer game market. It was first developed as a synthesizer expansion unit for use by professional musicians. If your D-50 couldn't spit out enough simultaneous voices (synth polyphony), just add an MT-32 and let it take care of the some of the background stuff (that's where the “32” in the name came from, it could sound up to 32 voices simultaneously).

The MT-32 was a sleek looking unit for it's time. The front panel sported a volume knob, ten buttons and a small, green LCD screen used to indicate the current patch and to help facilitate patch programming.
