The Virtual Acoustic plug-in board lets you create incredibly expressive, natural-sounding voices by digitally simulating the physical characteristics of acoustic instruments.

Along with its superior ability to emulate real-life wind, brass and string instruments, this plug-in board lets you create imaginary "virtual" musical instruments. Thanks to its fabulous synthesis architecture, extensive realtime performance control of the voices is possible, making it the ideal plug-in board for keyboard soloists. Furthermore, this plug-in board is fully compatible with VL-XG song data, which allows for incredibly expressive and realistic playback of sequenced wind and string instrument parts.

What is the Modular Synthesis Plug-in System?

Powerful Expansion Boards That:
Expand your sound generation capabilities
Increase your available polyphony
Give you more multitimbral parts and effects
Can be controlled from the host keyboard
Come bundled with PC software for detailed voice editing

PLG150 Professional Series Plug-in Boards
Yamaha's Modular Synthesis Plug-in System is a revolutionary expansion system that adds a COMPLETE SYNTHESIZER or SOUND PROCESSING ENGINE to any Modular-Synthesis-Plug-in- compatible synthesizer. Yamaha's amazing plug-in board lineup, which includes the PLG150 Professional Series not only gives you new sounds, but also new synthesis architecture, new effects processors, extra polyphony and more. It's like placing an additional synthesizer or digital effects processor inside your existing keyboard but at a fraction of the cost!

Once a plug-in board is installed, you can directly access any of its voices and edit them from the front panel of the host synthesizer. You can also use a PC-based software editor (bundled with each plug-in board) to edit any of the voices in detail. Many voice parameters can be controlled by a MIDI sequencer, which enables you to record realtime edits, such as filter cutoff frequency and effect levels, for automated voice transformation during playback.

With the Modular Synthesis Plug-in System, you can customize your Yamaha synthesizer with the exact synthesis or processing power you need...whenever you need it.

Note: Bundled editors are software plug-ins developed for XGworks sequencing software (Windows 95/98).

Offering new synthesis possibilities ranging from physical modeling to FM synthesis, these high-quality plug-in boards cater to specific synthesizer needs of professional users. Each plug-in board within the PLG150 Series comes bundled with special "Plug-in Voice" data that makes full use of the exclusive features found on the S80, S30, CS6x and CS6R synthesizers.
