This is not really a synthesizer but a small simple keyboard with FM sounds and some very cheezy rhythms. It also has a cheezy chord and arpeggio section which guarantees a good laugh at your parties!

BUT, there is a very rare feature on the Yamaha Portasound PC100. On the upper side of the machine, there is a gap through which you can slide cards with magnetic data! If you do this, the keyboard will play the music which is written on these cards...There are about 10 cars supplied i think... I searched the Internet for more info on this rare model but i can't find anything about it...

Comments About the Sounds:
Thin and simple FM sounds.

(Thanks to Bas for this info.)
and Egidius for the pic
