SynthsYamaha ⇝ Yamaha MU2000

The MU2000 is the most feature-rich of Yamaha's MU series of tone generators. It has two A/D inputs for guitar or microphone and effects can be applied to the A/D input signal. It has an optical digital output, USB and SmartMedia card slots. It also has a built in 4MB sampler and sequencer. It has 3 PLG expansion board slots for PLG-series expansion boards.

The MU2000 supports General MIDI (GM), General MIDI 2 (GM2), and XG standards. A firmware upgrade adds Roland GS support and new effects and makes it a MU2000EX module.

The MU2000 is highest-end module in a series that included the MU1000 (which lacks the sampler and sequencer) and the MU500 (which lacks sampler, sequencer, and front-panel interface buttons).
