You'll find an advanced three-voice sound circuit for sophisticated sound an music generation through the built-in speaker. There's also a headphone jack with volume control - perfect for the classroom. Graphics-oriented Personal Deskmate software features six programs and handy pull-down menus and pop-up boxes for selecting funvtions.
