You are looking at a YAMAHA SW1000XG sound card. It's a professional MIDI instrument on PC. The card is used but it's in perfect condition(pls find photos for details). Card only, no cables and instruction book(but PDF file available)
AWM Wave Table
• Using the AWM2 (Advanced Wave Memory 2) tone generator, the wave table built into the SW1000XG
offers high quality sound with 1267 normal voices and 46 drum kits playing with 32 part/64 polyphony
(the maximum number of simultaneous sounds). The quality of sound rivals that of Yamaha’s MU100 tone
generator, which is top-class, even among tone generators for personal computer-based music system.
Full Array of Effects
• The SW1000XG comes equipped with a total of six effect blocks: reverb (12 types), chorus (14 types),
variation (70 types), insertion 1/2 (43 types for each), and five band multi EQ (four types). The
SW1000XG does more than offer effects for an ensemble as a whole. It also lets you craft detailed
effect settings for each instrument part, creating an elaborate world of sound using just one sound card.
The effects can be applied not only to the internal tone generator, but also to input from external
audio sources such as wave data (digital audio) or to microphone input.
• Because the SW1000XG sound card is compatible with the GM standard and Yamaha’s exclusive XG
extensions to GM, you can enjoy playing commercially available GM and XG song collections with
high quality sound.
GM (General MIDI System Level 1) is an addition to the MIDI standard which ensures that any
GM-compatible music data can be accurately played by any GM-compatible tone generator,
regardless of maker. With the GM standard, you can assign any of the 128 GM-compatible voices
to each of the 16 parts, or MIDI channels. (Channel 10 is fixed as the drum part.)
XG is a new MIDI format created by Yamaha which significantly improves and expands upon the
General MIDI standard by providing a greater variety of high-quality voices plus considerably
enhanced effect operation—while being fully compatible with GM.
MIDI Interface Function
• You can connect your sound card to an external MIDI keyboard or other MIDI device using the MIDI
adapter cable that was included with your SW1000XG.
Expanded Capability with an XG Plug-In Board
• You can add expanded functions like a VL (physical model) tone generator to the standard AWM2 tone
generator in your SW1000XG sound card by simply connecting an XG Plug-In System compatible plugin
option board (PLG100 series).
Digital Audio Recording/Playback
• The SW1000XG features six stereo wave playback devices and two stereo wave recording devices.
Among the two stereo recording devices, one is for external audio input (A/D input) only, and the
other mixes external audio input (A/D input), AWM2 tone generator sound, and wave tracks in the
Using the included XGworks for SW1000XG software as an example, wave data on multiple tracks can
be sent to the SW1000XG sound card audio parts (maximum 12 parts), and played simultaneously with
each part having effects applied.
Mic/Line input can be recorded on a wave track (in either stereo or mono) in time with playback of
MIDI tracks (or MIDI tracks and wave tracks). With this feature, it’s easy to lay down multiple recordings
for things like vocals, with the AWM2 tone generator of the SW1000XG playing in the background.
When you make a song using this feature, you can play back all the MIDI tracks and wave tracks
simultaneously, then record the entire output together on a single wave track. When you do this, all
the tracks of a song can be united into one as wave data, then mastered. The mastered audio data can
then be used as a file for writing on a CD-R disk.
• Stereo digital out (S/PDIF) connector is equipped on the SW1000XG. Also, when you connect an
optional digital mixing card (DS2416), you can send digital output from the SW1000XG to the DS2416
on one pair of stereo outputs and six individual outputs. This means that even if no external digital
mixer is available, you can control every aspect of your music, including digital mixing, from within
