Yamaha DOM-30 - The DOM-30 is a high performance MIDI tone generator / disk orchestra module with 100 voices and rhythm sounds. With 100 voices it makes the DOM-30 an excellent Tone generator system for use with a suitable MIDI sequencer, sampler, keyboard and computer system. The DOM-30 is also a sophisticated disk recorder, allowing you to record your own music software. You can independantly record up to 10 separate parts of a single musical composition - plus rhythm track. You can enjoy recording and playing back simple one-voice performances, or take advantage of the DOM-30's internal 100 Voice tone generator and create complex multitrack compositions that use a number of different voices. The DOM-30 is also an excellent keyboard practice aid as it allows you to cancel playback of specific parts so you can play them on the keyboard yourself, accompanied by the rest of the orchestra."
