"The LAPC combines the Roland MT-32-compatible MIDI synthesizer module Roland CM-32L with an MPU-401 interface on a single plug-in card. The sound is generated using linear arithmetic synthesis (LA), a form of sample-based synthesis supplemented with subtractive synthesis. As with other Roland plug-in cards with an MPU-401 interface, an MCB-1 is required to connect external MIDI devices. The sound is output either via cinch sockets or a jack socket. Compared to more modern sound cards, the LAPC masters the independent generation of sounds, but not the playback of wave files. However, it produced the sound for many retro games! Original packaging with description! Everything as new!"
