BeebOPL Kit (Assembled)
The BeebOPL is a modern peripheral designed for the BBC Micro. It functions as an FM synthesizer using the Yamaha OPL chip. From the manual:
"This easy to assemble and install card transforms your computer into a powerful synthesiser which will faithfully reproduce the sound of a single instrument or an entire orchestra.
"In fact, it uses the same digital sound technology as the best electronic keyboard, so you hear rich, rumbling base, crystal clear highs, and true up-front mid-range. It also has up to 11 discrete channels for up to 11 different instruments and game sounds playing at once. You can listen to the sound straight from the speaker of your BBC Microcomputer and with the built-in pre-amplifier and output jack you can even listen to it on your home stereo."
